21:45 | Emperor Trickiness

The Boy Emperor announces an unprecedented event: he invites the press into the White House’s intimate setting so he can use the power of the office to address people still voting in open states and beg for their vote.

First, it’s outrageous, typical of him. Second, it’s a sign, to me, that Rove et. al. is a bit nervous about either the electoral vote or the popular vote or perhaps both. As Peter Jennings on ABC said, he may be looking for an overwhelming popular vote mandate, an erasure of the 2000 fraud.

And god help us all if he gets a so-called mandate to stay on the throne. You think this four years was rough? Stay around for Part Deaux. Jeebus.
