We are plagued with improper elections not because the cheaters are
especially clever, but because American elections are not taken
seriously. The Democratic legislators would rather let a party
dominated by white, male, Southern racists run the nation
illegitimately, than risk facing any retaliation the Bushists might
inflict upon dissidents. African American MCs know where they fit in
this system, so they resist anyway.
