Before you think this fight is over, and that there's a landslide of any kind of landslide for Obama, just remember all my previous posts about rigged voting machines and corrupt Republiscums in charge of the elections in key swing states. If you think for a second they won't be pulling out all stops to steal this election, even against all odds and evidence of reality, just think about the last eight years of corruption, obfuscation, misdirection, and deliberate lying.

Investigation by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Greg Palast released today

Don’t worry about Mickey Mouse or ACORN stealing the election.
According to an investigative report out today in Rolling Stone
magazine, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Greg Palast, after a year-long
investigation, reveal a systematic program of "GOP vote tampering" on a
massive scale.

- Republican Secretaries of State of swing-state Colorado have quietly purged one in six names from their voter rolls.

several months, the GOP politicos in Colorado stonewalled every attempt
by Rolling Stone to get an answer to the massive purge - ten times the
average state's rate of removal.

While Obama dreams of riding to the White House on a wave of new
voters, more then 2.7 million have had their registrations REJECTED
under new procedures signed into law by George Bush.

Kennedy, a voting rights lawyer, charges this is a resurgence of 'Jim Crow' tactics to wrongly block Black and Hispanic voters.

- A fired US prosecutor levels new charges - accusing leaders of his
own party, Republicans, with criminal acts in an attempt to block legal
voters as "fraudulent."
- Digging through
government records, the Kennedy-Palast team discovered that, in 2004, a
GOP scheme called "caging” ultimately took away the rights of 1.1
million voters. The Rolling Stone duo predict that, this November 4, it
will be far worse.
There's more:
Since the last presidential race, "States used dubious 'list
management' rules to scrub at least 10 million voters from their

those was Paul Maez of Las Vegas, New Mexico - a victim of an
unreported but devastating purge of voters in that state that left as
many as one in nine Democrats without a vote. For Maez, the state's
purging his registration was particularly shocking - he's the county
elections supervisor.

The Kennedy-Palast revelations go far beyond the sum of questionably purged voters recently reported by the New York Times.

operatives - the party's elite commandos of bare-knuckle politics,"
report Kennedy and Palast, under the cover of fighting fraudulent
voting, are "systematically disenfranchis[ing] Democrats."

The investigators level a deadly serious charge:

Democrats are to win the 2008 election, they must not simply beat
McCain at the polls - they must beat him by a margin that exceeds the
level of GOP vote tampering."
