Bore and Gush camps take the fight online

Will this never end?

Just when you thought it was coming to an end, another chapter has opened in the US election Saga. While all the national papers report that Gore will be conceding any day now, the online debate rages on.

Both camps have now started petition sites where disgruntled voters can register their support for either candidate.

This latest spat was started by the Democrats who set up the Count Our Votes site.

Gore supporters can send a form email complaining about the vote counting, register to have their names on the "Democracy Wall of Ribbons" and find out that they should wear an orange ribbon to show their support for Gore. It says "The Florida State Legislature may not want to hear your voices, but let them see that you want your vote to count."

Stirring stuff indeed.

Meanwhile, Republican JC Watts has added a petition section to his site where Shrubya's fans can add their names to the list of people who want Gore to shush and concede the election. Watts says to Gore that conceding would be the "honorable" [sic] thing to do, and that his doing so would allow America to move forward.

All this shows two things very clearly. American politicians are mad, and the US voting system is at least as silly as ours. ®
