That's some fuzzy math, CG. Could it be the better men were elected. Gore's father was a powerful Democratic Senator. Gore couldn't carry his own
Actually, I have read the black votes that were negated were black REPUBLICANS.
You don't hear
stuff like that in the mainstream media though.
Another consideration is the media calling a winner before the polls closed. this was the case in Florida - the networks were calling Gore the winner
when people still could vote. If you were on your way to vote for Bush and you heard Gore already won the election, would you still vote? The reality
is Bush could have won the popular vote as well - and very easily.
As far as the pledge goes, the guy who sued that started this whole mess with the pledge doesn't even live with his daughter that he claims he was
suing for. PLUS, his daughter is a Christian whose mom said she has NO problem whatsoever saying the pledge. It was a bogus lawsuit to begin with. The
same people that want us to leave God out of the pledge DEMAND that the prisoners at Camp X-ray be allowed to practice their Islam. Liberal hypocrisy.
