Sue your way to the White House

Drudge reportedly has received a DNC mobilization manual to be distributed throughout a number of states which counsels people to claim voter disenfranchisement, even when it doesn't exist. The manaual states:

"If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a 'pre-emptive strike.'"

I think, since 2000, when the Dems sent an army of attorneys to florida in an effort to get Gore into the presidency, despite what the law said, they set a new low. Alot of others have written on this new phenomena, but I think it is worth mentioning that the Dems realize any way in which they can tie things up and make an election look illigitimate when the opponent wins is in their favor.

We all remember the hoopla in florida when The Reverand "lovechild" Jackson, rallied his troops and countless people claimed they had been subjected to harrassment. After the waters settled, however, there were no substantiated claims of disenfranchisement.

I'm not claiming that bad things don't happen, they do, but the minute you start crying wolf, you lose all legitimacy and damage the very cause you're trying to help. The more hollow complaints of voter disenfranchisement that exist, the less weight is given to valid complaints.
