More election fun

The guy at the Fox News decision desk, the guy who made the decision to
project Florida as a Bush win, John Ellis, is George W. Bush's first cousin.
So the news bulletin that prompted Gore to make a concession call, and left
teeming hordes across the country with the impression that Bush won, but had
his win taken back, came straight from a Bush family member. Very clearly an
outrageous ethical lapse.
But obviously this isn't George's fault. George has no control over Fox
News. George has nothing to do with what his cousins do, right? Not so fast.
John Ellis' comment about the election night family get-together: "Their
[Jeb's and George's] mood was up, big-time. It was just the three of us guys
handing the phone back and forth - me with the numbers, one of them a
governor, the other the president-elect. Now that was cool."
This is the man who's going to return honesty and integrity to the White
House. And the man who trusts the people. And the man whose attempts to rig
the election are piling higher and higher.
