Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

To everything there is a season, set spin cycle to max

Well, it seems those filthy liberals are just trying to trash conservative America's world view again by actually not having an enthusiasm gap and going out to vote early in numbers that match to the 2008 election percentages (where electors declare parties and have early elections). What's a conservative to do? Well, you say there's massive voter fraud and people are stealing the election, of course. Because they can't be in the minority of opinion, they're the Permanent Majority.

Just spent my lunch reading way too many articles about voter fraud allegations that are false on the face of them, the prospect of voter intimidation by "poll watchers" and way too many screeds about "ZOMG, the election isn't going they way we predicted, it must be voter fraud."

Despite the Bush Administration's Justice Department's intense search for voter fraud cases (you may remember the scuttle-butt about a few attorneys being fired over not pursuing cases strongly enough), between 2002-2008 only 100 cases were found. Mostly on minor infractions (and I seem to remember at least a few conservative vote rigging schemes in there, I think in Michigan). Of course, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Keep looking. Keep praying. Keep telling ourselves that "it just can't be that way."
