URGENT Election Night Update & Call To Reasonable Minds from The Hedgehog Blog's War Room
Comfort Food Monitor:
A Call To Action
All Hedgehog Blog readers are encouraged to begin a massive and uninterrupted e-mail and phone campaign demanding that the Kerry campaign cease to hold the outcome of this election hostage. The people have spoken. The margins are beyond legitimate legal contest. The only possible motivation for a challenge is to undermine a clear victory by the Bush administration and the voting public.
This is not 2000. Bush has won the popular vote by a several million vote margin. The margin in Ohio is around 120,000 votes, not the 500 votes or so that separated Bush and Gore in Florida.

Here is the e-mail we sent to this address:
Throughout the final months of the campaign, there have been rumors that the reason Clinton campaign strategists like Paul Begala and James Carville attached themselves to Kerry's flailing campaign . . . was to begin setting the stage for a close, contested loss in the 2004 Presidential election, a Kerry loss being actually a "win" for Hilary Clinton's presidential agenda. This late Tuesday night, it is clear that democratic strategists facing a disastrous loss in almost every category, are spoiling for a fight over the legitimacy of Bush's win.
Senator Kerry: I respect you as a patriotic American who has given much to his country. Please concede the election to President Bush. It is the right thing to do. He won the popular vote with an outright majority,by a margin of nearly three million votes. He has carried Ohio and has an electoral vote majority that you cannot reasonably hope to overcome. Again, it is simply the right thing to do. Please concede.
Let us unite against the self-serving activities of Terry McAuliffe and the rest of the Kerry team.
