In an email sent on July 28th on behalf of Republican Secretary of State nominee Paul Pate’s campaign, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) accused Democrats of rigging Minnesota’s 2008 Senate election on behalf of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), using their control of the Secretary of State office. [...]

“This wasn’t a fair recount,” King wrote Pate’s supporters. “This was a democrat plan put into action two years in advance of Coleman’s re-election campaign.”

Well, of course. All close elections are fraudulent if the Republican doesn't win.

“There is an important U.S. Senate race in Iowa this year, and Senator Grassley will be up for re-election two years from now,” King wrote. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see what they are up to.”

1. It is unchristian for the GOP to turn social norms back to what they were

before Christianity. Where people were suspicious of each other and thrived on conspiracy and scapegoating. But they've done it. And it looks intentional. I guess they were having no luck with an educated populace. Or a judao-christian one. Does the religious right answer for this? Where their values are actually under attack from the right, not the left that is always blamed.
