Back when the PATRIOT act was enacted, a lot of mouthpieces on the right made noises that sounded an awful lot like "If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear".

So... if that's the case - how come the republicans are pullin' a stunt like this?

On a related note - Greg Palast has some good points on the missing votes of 2000 and how Kerry and Edwards SHOULD respond.

Will they "Do The RIght Thing" and bring this issue into the Democratic Mainstream? I Dunno. It's definitely something that needs more light shed on it.

On a aside note from something mentioned in the Palast article - why wouldn't a wrtie in vote for a candidate that is listed on the ballot count? If the specifc marker for that candidate isn't marked, but some kind of entry is made on said ballot to indicate the intent and choice of the voter shouldn't that still be counted?

But at least they had the guts to face up to the NAACP regardless of any personal beefs with the leadership of said institution.
