Nina Mollett's Dec. 11 piece on the Florida election was read with sad appreciation that at least somebody is getting the word out on the scandal.
Any fool could have guessed Bush lost, when the week of Sept. 11 the Florida recount news was suppressed for reasons of national security. We can bet the establishment media would have trumpeted the news from the highest hills that week had their man actually won.
The right wing is definitely two-faced over their professed belief in democracy. Consider this: If the shoe had been on the other foot, with Bush winning the popular vote, and Gore having a brother governing Florida in a dubious election there, followed by a party line Supreme Court vote giving him the presidency, Washington would have been in flames months ago! It is one thing to hijack an airliner, and quite another to hijack an entire country. This is what has happened to America, and nobody gives a damn.
