Kerry alleges voter intimidation, trickery

BOSTON, April 10 -- Many would-be voters in last year's presidential election were denied access to the polls through trickery and intimidation, former Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry told the Massachusetts League of Women Voters on Sunday.

Kerry cited examples of how people were duped into not voting. "Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote," he said.

Kerry has never disputed the outcome of the election, saying voting irregularities did not involve enough votes to change the result. President Bush won the pivotal state of Ohio by 118,000 votes, giving him enough electoral votes to win reelection.

Now, excuse me for being an insensitive elitist snob, but if you can't figure out when election day is, or some stranger calls on the phone and tells you you can't vote if you've ever had a parking ticket, and you then don't vote, well, you probably shouldn't be voting anyway. Or crossing the street all by yourself, either.

Throughout the election cycle, including the primaries, I viewed Kerry as an empty suit. I was wrong. He is much worse than that. He is a serial exaggerator (if not out-and-out liar) with a real need for self-aggrandizement, an ego the size of Alaska and Texas combined, and a complete and utter disdain for the common man. He really thinks the "little" people are idiots.

Does he really believe this nonsense? Does he really believe those who would have potentially voted for him could be that stupid?

Oh, by the way, I'm still waiting to hear him repudiate the numerous and well-documented incidents of union goon platoons threatening, damaging, and even causing injuries to workers at, Bush-Cheney offices in the run-up to the election. Voter intimidation and voter fraud were rampant in 2004. Not all, but the vast majority, perpetrated by Kerry supporters. Heard the guy say anything about any of that?

And one last thing: seen that signed S-180 yet?
