I think I figured it out...

...all this screeching from the right-wing about ACORN and alleged widespread voter fraud (for which there is little to no evidence)?

They're getting ready to lose.

Emily, that's how it always is. They're in full-fledged denial right now, hence all the vitriol.

And I have to admit, this is somewhat a case of recognizing your own kind. I remember how angry I got each time Bush won an election. Only, in those cases there was actual solid evidence of vote tampering and disenfranchisement. So there's that.

Don't think there won't be much wailing and gnashing of teeth after the election from the howler monkeys of the right about ACORN, voter fraud, and all the rest, even if Obama wins comfortably, which is starting to look more and more likely.

I think all the ACORN stories are in large part about the right wanting to be able to challenge the legitimacy of an Obama administration, even in the face of an overwhelming victory.

One can only hope. I wonder if the U.S. election system is just too damned complicated -- like you need someone to come in and simplify the heck out of it.

Then again, maybe the republicans don't want that because they'd lose for sure.

I'm not one to count chickens before they're hatched (I'm still sour from the last two elections), but it's hard not to see all this righteous anger as getting their ducks in a row for protesting an Obama administration right out of the gate.

Nat - You may be on to something there.
