I really like Winston Smith’s postings at Philosoraptor, but at first I skipped reading his latest, both because it was long and because it was about the post-election infighting in 2000, a subject that I didn’t really want to be thinking about right now, and figured I’d already thought about enough. But then I broke down and read it, and I’m glad I did. I encourage you to overcome your reflexive revulsion at the subject and do so, too: The case against Bush, part 2 –The Florida recount and what it revealed.
Here’s a brief excerpt:
