The Supremes have already stepped in, eager for any chance to swing things in Bush's direction. After an Ohio court rightly found that allowing Bush supporters to bog down the voting process at mostly minority polling places was in impediment to democracy, subsequent challenges were sent up to the Supreme Court. Echoing their wonderful attitude from Florida, 2000, of "anything to get George into the West Wing", the conservatives on the court declined to stop the Bushies from being allowed to pull off this stunt.

So, if you find yourself waiting in long lines in Ohio... hang in there. You'll get to the booth eventually. It's sad, but Bush holds a lot of the cards in this game, and we are unfortunately going to have to play the it at his table. This doesn't mean, however, that you can't still beat him.
