You think there might be a reason Bush is so smug when it comes to Republican chances for victory in the midterm elections?

I am going to get political for a second on you guys.

According to Raw Story it is not unusual for Floridians to vote Democrat, but have there votes recorded for Republicans.

George doesn't see what all the fuss is about.

"We'll have a Republican speaker and a Republican leader of the Senate."

Election fraud is such a concern that the blog Crooks & Liars admits:

I've been hesitant to publish too much about potential voter problems, not because I don't believe there's a problem, but because I feel strongly that we should not discourage voting and there's only so much news you can read like this without getting hopeless.

But in order to regain some semblance of balance in this country and to get the desperately needed oversight that this administration has not had in the last six years and it is critical that each and every one of us exercises our right to vote.

From Glenn Greenwald:

"What the Bilal Hussein detention reveals about the Bush Administration."

"Bilal Hussein is the Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press photographer who was detained by the U.S. military in Iraq back in April -- almost six months ago."

Along with 14,000 other people around the world (at least), he continues to remain in U.S. custody without being charged with any crime. The U.S. military has vaguely claimed that he has close ties with Iraqi insurgents but refuses to specify what it is specifically that he is alleged to have done, refuses to provide any hearing or process of any kind for him to learn of the charges or contest them, and refuses to respond to AP's requests for information about why he is being held.

I don't want to sound as paranoid as 9/11 conspiracy theorists do, but if Bush seizes power for a third term because of some Iranian dirty bomb explosion in New York. Don't blame me.

I already warned you. Plus I will be in some detetion camp built by the good folks at Haliburton.
