Democrats: Don’t believe the vote

An Ohio judge threw out a challenge to the 2004 election. Jesse Jackson is mad that George Bush won. So instead of holding to the rules of a democracy – the person that wins the election gets the office – Jackson is trying to get the election overturned.

This is my favorite part of the story:

The complaint questioned how the actual results could show Bush winning when exit-poll interview findings on election night indicated that Kerry would win 52 percent of Ohio’s presidential vote.

Without listing specific evidence, the complaint alleges that 130,656 votes for Kerry and John Edwards (news – web sites) in 36 counties were somehow switched to count for the Bush-Cheney ticket.

Exit-polls are more reliable to Jackson than an actual vote count. In other words, Jackson doesn’t believe in democracy. He doesn’t want every vote to count, only the votes of those who said they voted for Kerry. Exit polls aren’t elections. They don’t accurately reflect vote counts. The only way to know who wins an election is to count the votes. When Ohio counted, Bush won.

Democrats said they wouldn’t accept the election results if Bush won. Why is anyone even listening to these people. The danger is not that Bush won the election. The danger is that some Democrats want to overturn the will of the people.

Any means necessary, right Jesse?
