Trip down memory lane

Think Again: Florida 2000 Forever

As we approach the 10th anniversary of the Bush v. Gore decision—technically December 12—it is interesting to note how much of our current political predicament can be discerned in the events of those days. The Bush-Gore election illustrates three key points about today’s political and media environment:

Conservatives fight harder and dirtier for what they want than progressives.
The mainstream media gives conservatives a pass for acting and speaking in their own political interest while criticizing progressives for the same thing.
Conservative commentators recognize few if any boundaries in their willingness to demonize progressives, with virtually no corollary of any kind among progressives.

Remember this article was written 10 years after Bush-Gore now for fun look at how I change it.

Yes, Gore didn't suffer a landslide loss. Gore didn't charge that the election was rigged two months before it took place or claim that it was rigged after the election took place. Defending a moron must be a thankless chore, huh ?

Yeah, Gore conceded, then went all 'Bush didn't win', and made a mess. Defending Gore's action is a thankless chore.

Hillary in 2002 claimed Gore won.

Hillary last week nodded approval that Gore won.

Yep, thankless chores defending that.
