Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Kos has some rather "uncompromising" definitions of what can be posted on the site. It seems the whole subject of voter fraud is about as popular as a root canal. Kos himself comers off as a bit threatening, I would say. Brad himself has a diary that illustrates this-- lots of fairly controlled temper there, for which I congratulate him. Even if he talks it to death.
Somehow the whole point of basic confidence being damaged by problems not limited to fraud, but encompassing a whole range of issues has escaped the discussion, except in rare corners, on kos.

Too bad. Kossacks are missing a chance to do a really important thing, I think. As are Hillary, Edwards and Obama.

It's why I like Kucinich.

Imagine a joint press conference, with all the Democratic candidates agreeing that the recount is an essential step in restoring election integrity. If I were advising Clinton or Obama or Edwards, I'd advise them to get behind this thing pronto,--and offer to pick up the tab. What a moral boost for the Dems--and it's real, not contrived. It IS important.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.

Kos tries to hard to be "serious". Talk of election fraud is "unserious".

That's the real problem: Kos has become what he and other Kossacks are supposed to ridicule.  He's essentially the MSM now.  But that should've been obvious from his shallow dismissal of Edwards based on financial "problems".  (Edwards is beating the snot out of all the Republicans.)

They're Villagers now.  No sense is hoping to save them.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

About the worst that can happen is that Markos will cancel the post and ban you from the site.  

But every time he does that sort of stunt more people over there wise up.  So it's all good.  

The Fates are kind.
