Reality Check

Have you ever noticed how liberals and leftists just can't accept reality when reality conflicts with their own warped worldview? Here's another great example, from Ohio:
The Ohio Supreme Court's chief justice on Thursday threw out a challenge to the state's presidential election results.

Chief Justice Thomas Moyer ruled that the request improperly challenged two separate election results. Ohio law only allows one race to be challenged in a single complaint, he said.

The challenge was backed by the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Cliff Arnebeck, a Columbus attorney for the Massachusetts-based Alliance for Democracy, who accused Bush's campaign of "high-tech vote stealing."

Claiming fraud, the voters cited reports of voting-machine errors, double-counting of ballots and a shortage of voting machines in predominantly minority precincts as reasons to throw out the results.

The complaint questioned how the actual results could show Bush winning when exit-poll interview findings on election night indicated that Kerry would win 52 percent of Ohio's presidential vote.

Without listing specific evidence, the complaint alleges that 130,656 votes for Kerry and John Edwards in 36 counties were somehow switched to count for the Bush-Cheney ticket.
It's all so simple! The actual results can't be right, because the exit polls had John Kerry winning! So the obvious course of action is to take the actual votes for Bush and grant them to Kerry! Because the exit polls are what our elections are decided by! At least when they show the liberal candidate ahead. Really, I do not know why there even needs to be a lawsuit, it should all be so clear to everyone!

I would suggest that someone please find a bucket of cold water and wake these liberals up, but I don't think they make a bucket that big. And besides, why stop the Democrats from driving themselves further and further into the political wilderness?
