It Might Be Closer Than You Think

If you look at the polls and their predictions, you might think that Barack Obama has a pretty good chance, at least as of today, of winning the election.

But if you carefully study voting patterns you'll find that it doesn't take many votes to swing the election. You only have to know where it's important to do that. The investigative reporter Greg Palast and his friend, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., have also studied voting patterns--those not counted. What they've discovered is worrisome. Could this happen in November? If so, I'm sure it'll be thoroughly covered by the mainstream media. Maybe.

What do we know about what is done in Washington to confirm voter registration, and potentially remove people who should be eligible?

I'm guessing that after the 2004 gubernatorial elections, every voter registration record in the state has been pretty thoroughly examined...

I wish I could attend Sam Reed's speech tomorrow at Whitworth.

That could be a good question to ask him.
