Sue Your Way to the White House, Part II

Well this article from Fox News makes my stomach churn.,2933,136011,00.html

Unlike the former vice president, who lost a recount fight and the 2000 election, Kerry will be quick to declare victory on election night and begin defending it. He also will be prepared to name a national security team before knowing whether he's secured the presidency.

Six so-called "SWAT teams" of lawyers and political operatives will be situated around the country with fueled-up jets awaiting Kerry's orders to speed to a battleground state. The teams have been told to be ready to fly on the evening of the election to begin mounting legal and political fights. No team will be more than an hour from a battleground.

"Right now, we have 10,000 lawyers out in the battleground states on Election Day, and that number is growing by the day," said Michael Whouley,

Their goal would be to persuade voters that Kerry has the best claim to the presidency and that Republicans are trying to steal it.
Democrats are already laying the public relations groundwork by pointing to every possible voting irregularity before the Nov. 2 election and accusing Republicans of wrongdoing.

What have we come to? A "SWAT" teams of lawyers? This is insane. Really, this is a new low. While the "Re-defeat Bush" crowd might buy into this, I hope the American people will see through all this for what it really is, a desparate attempt, no a pathetic attempt to guarantee Kerry the presidency and to illegitimatize President Bush, irregardless of the facts.
If any one has doubts about this, go read the DNC manual I mentioned in a previous post that discusses how people should claim disenfranchisement, even if none exists.
