The 2000 election. (AP) - "About 50 Bush supporters outside the Leon County library shouted "Give it up Gore" and sang "Nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, hey, goodbye" when they learned of the U.S. Supreme Court decision. "

That's about the tone of the Republicans in this country.

While the Democrats have urged a simple recount, to be sure every American's vote counts, and have pledged to stand by the result (and while their party actually won the popular vote) the Republicans filed the first (in a series, from both sides, but the first, nonetheless) legal challange to recounting, fearing (probably rightly so) that an accurate recount would give the lead to Gore.

But that's not the point.

The point is that the Republicans are not only acting like high-school sophomores, but that while the Democrats are trying to ensure the rule of law in our fragile Republic, the Republicans have literaly violated our Constitution and stolen the election from the American people.

They are once again acting like little children. Given the opportunity to run rampant in the candy store, Democrats would be passing out candy to the poor waiting outside, while the Republicans would be busy stuffing their own pockets.

Same old story; same old shit.

OK, you sophomores. You stole the election and forced your "beer-drinking buddy" into the White House. If you think your buddy is on your side - you're as naive as you are stupid.

Grab your ankles, America - the rich are about to become a lot richer, and you know where it comes from : the poor are going to pay for it all, and become a lot poorer.

And if you're African-American; Chicano-American; Asian-American or anything other than White-bread, while you're down there grabbing your ankles, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye.
