On Sunday, John Kerry offered yet another loony theory for why he lost. Not surprisongly, Kerry blames others and not himself. This time, Kerry said Republicans tricked or intimidated some of his voters into not voting on November 2. Offering not a shred of evidence for this theory (which actually originated on Internet spoof sites), the senator from Massachusetts said GOP operatives handed out leaflets or posted signs in Democratic areas reminding people to vote on Wednesday, November 3. Kerry said some of his voters may have been confused and stayed home on the actual Election Day. This reminds me of the Palm Beach County Democrats in 2000 who said they couldn’t figure out their ballots and voted for Pat Buchanan by mistake. Let’s put on our best MoveOn.org conspiracy hats and assume this really did happen. It says something about Kerry’s candidacy (and the Democrats) if he truly has to rely on the votes of people so utterly clueless. Do we really want such folks determining the course of our democracy?
