The disputed election is once again between one very conservative candidate and one very left-wing candidate. It seems we Americans, in the larger, more inclusive sense of the word, aren’t sure what we want to be.
As a Floridian, I know how
>Declare martial law and round up all dissidents; hey, it worked here in Florida.
>Invite Katherine Harris down there to give the vote over to the conservative. Keep her down there through the '06 US midterm elections - at least.
>Void the election results and declare Al Gore El Presidente for life.
Barring these options, I suggest they get started counting "hanging chaditos."
