I Got in the act, with the following column in The Guardian:
FOLLOWING Are my particular japes & sneers, which you may view in context, in the above:
[HERE! Are some MORE semi-colons, by God!]
IT Is just coming tea-time, here at home on Monday afternoon, in southern Minnesota, and Blue Earth county has on its low iron hat. The temperature is 50-some degrees, and there is a fine damp odour of wet earth and soggy grass, deceptively vernal. It is dead-still, and the boffins continue to say that to-morrow the high temperature, under partly-cloudy skies, will be fully ten degrees warmer — sixty-six, or so. ‘Tis greatly to be hoped so, in view of the well-known lazy proclivities of so many Democrat voters; to not go to their polls on boisterous and/or chilly days. Were the ballot to be taken to-day, my light-metre certainly says that the bad Republicans should have the slight edge; just on the strength of conditions. I don’t know why this should be so; except that very many Democrats are to be found among our most-clientised classes; and, they generally (emotionally, I mean) will let externals condition moods & performance & effort, and so forth. The Republicans are, on this farmerly level of the populace, more kinaesthetic; a more crude & avid lot, who more-singlemindedly do get more possessed by some ‘idea’ or other (“vict’ry in Iraq!”); and then, in a popular phrase, “go for it”. Their dim-anxious ire, about “illegal wetbacks [Mexicans, eg — BW]”, has abated for the nonce; and, they mainly want a Republican-win just to do town-people in the eye, I think. The harvest is mostly done, now, and up at the liquor-store the fifty-something, and sixty-year-old, yeoman are taking the day off from looking at pornography in their workshop-computers. In vast and wadded, pre-diabetic, mounds, they loom and teeter on their tall creaking bar-stools — fuming with boozey chuckles, about “God-damn liberals….” All except neighbour Juddy Andersen, who neither drinks (“I am NOT a God-damn fool!”) nor looks at off-colour pictures of disturbed young girls (“…the poor little shits don’t have an IDEA in their God-damn empty heads!” says Judson — who, in any case, “…wouldn’t let one of them God-damn COM-PU-TERS on the place, fer Christ’s sake!”). I just left him a bit ago in his shop, where I helped him to swap a couple of gas-bottles for his welding-torch, and now I am going to put The Girls (Huldy and Ragna — my two Icelandic ponies) in their stalls, as we were hauling up a waggon-load of stumps for the wood-splitter, just before all of this.

ACCORDING To She Who Must Be Obeyed, on the TeeVee last night, here in southern Minnesota, a documentary was aired about elections-rigging; and, in which it was alleged that the head of some computerised balloting outfit, here, supposedly had written a letter to la Bush, guaranteeing the coyote-faced son-of-a-bitch the vote of some state(s) or other, during some earlier brawl. I wouldn’t know — I was at Judson Anderson’s, arguing over coffee until elevenish, about the ’64 Goldwater-campaign. But, somehow, it does seem not utterly beyond belief; that the arrogant bastards should actually set down this sort thing in writing, I mean…. Did anyone else hear about any of this?
s/Wook, CC & Election-Frauds Detective [retd]
A General sort of a question occurs:
HOW Divisive will be a concerted drive in the American congress, to try to impeach this dreadful midget personality, Bush? We must remember the larger context — a generation more monied on average, self-adoring and vice-ridden and ‘professional’, and actually not cultured, than any before; a generation more divided against itself than any other in all our long American story; and, a generation that, in its politics, has once already played this dire — game. Impeachment is an incredibly important and urgent affair. I quite agree, the actions of this repressed & non-sexual fellow from Texas have been, and are, at least an order of magnitude worse than the nincompooperies of The Clinton — but, just as elements of this generation try to trivialise the Constitution at every turn, with frivolous ‘ideas’ about amendment, so the Republican wing of the 1946-er’s have already trivialised the impeachment-process ten years since. This is a loathsome mess, and I ask it again:
HOW Divisive will be any attempt to bring to book this fraud from Crawford?
AND — Where shall we end up as a nation, if, after all, the process fails?
CAN The society — within an ace of fiscal collapse at every tick of the global stock-market — stand it?

I Believe that the Tee Vee programme about vote-rigging & computerised ballots was on the US cable-channel, ‘HBO’, last night (Sunday evening, eg) — something about ‘Hacking the Vote’. It was in that broadcast, I am told, that the immoral & thieving letter, from the voting-technology company chief to G W Bush, was mentioned.
THE Claim of such brassy effrontery, alas, does not defy belief….
