rule of law

Rule of Law! Rule of Law! Remember how they kept screaming about this in 2000?

Decision2004: Did Bush camp err on ballot papers?: "State law sets a Sept. 1 deadline for the governor to certify a list of presidential electors for each party's candidates.
But Sept. 1 was also the day President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were being nominated at their party' convention in New York. Consequently, some of their paperwork did not arrive at state elections headquarters until Sept. 2, a day after Gov. Jeb Bush certified the candidates for president.
Sadly, the Dems are, of course, backing down. I've about had it with these milquetoasts.

Democrats said they aren't so sure, but they won't challenge the Bush campaign's papers.
Florida Democratic Party chairman Scott Maddox said he knew the president's certificate of nomination did not reach the state until Sept. 2, but he said he decided not to make an issue of it.
'To keep an incumbent president off the ballot in a swing state the size of Florida because of a technicality, I just don't think would be right,' Maddox said."
Wouldn't be right to hold the President to the freaking laws, would it? They stole the goddamned election on a "technicality", but we're too big for that? Screw it.

We have to win this time. By any means necessary (and legal).
