Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell finally testified. "Blackwell vigorously defended his role in last fall's presidential election at a congressional hearing on Monday, March 21, at the Ohio Statehouse, claiming critics have smeared his state as if it were a "third world country" rather than the national model of election administration that Blackwell said it was."

the national model of election administration ???????

Perhaps he didn't see this election day video compilation. It looks awfully "third world" to me. http://www.votecobb.org/#video

I guess he must not come down from his ivory tower very often, or perhaps he has his rose colored glasses permanently glued to his face.

I think what it comes down to is what I call the Reagan twostep.
In Reagan's case: he let his flunkies know that he though it would be nice if the Contras got some more money to continue their fight against the Nicaraguan government and said no more about it. Later when his flunkies got caught brokering missle deals with Iran to generate money for the Contras, Reagan was able to say truthfully that he knew nothing about it.
Same thing goes with Blackwell (and congresswoman Harris). Belonging to the committee to (re)elect Bush strikes me as being a fairly strong statement as to the wishes of those secretaries of state, and I'm sure that anyone carrying out those wishes unbidden were fairly confident that they were never going to be called on the carpet for it, and all this was done without any explicit communication (conspiracy) taking place. Neat trick huh?
