Democrats: The Party of Recounts and No-Accounts

Friday, 24 November 2000 12:00 AM

Palm Beach County Commissioner Carol Roberts isn't going away for the holidays. She's staying put. She and her family had planned to travel to Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) for three weeks. Now she's trying like mad to reschedule the vacation.

This Democrat won't go anywhere until she and her fellow canvassing board members can certify the results of a hand recount and give Al Gore the votes he needs to steal the White House.

Florida law requires all three members of a county's canvassing board to be present to validate ballots that are called into question and to certify the election results. If Roberts goes on vacation, that would mean her designated replacement would be a county commissioner by the name of Warren Newell – a Republican.

Roberts won't allow that to happen. Because winning at all costs is her party's game, even if it means overstepping the law.

Bill Clinton continues to hold the nation's wizened class close to the government teat. He recently signed legislation to renew several government programs for the elderly. Those programs include Meals-on-Wheels service, job training, and pension counseling programs. It also creates a new family caregiver program that provides assistance to family members who care for blue-haired relatives. The caregiver program authorizes up to $125 million in taxpayer funds to "take the burden off the caregiver."

This is womb-to-tomb, basket-to-casket government care, folks. Your taxes go to pay for someone else's care, as if Bill Clinton and his administration are so much wiser than you when it comes to spending your own money. And in return for your generosity, the Democrats reap the benefits of spending your money. Come election time, the bluehairs return the favor by voting for the Democrats and more social programs.

And if we're subjected to an Al Gore presidency, we'll get four more years of the same.

Let’s try to summarize this entire election debacle in 50 words or less:

The votes are counted – twice. Bush wins. Gore knows that hand recounts in heavily Democratic districts will artificially inflate his total; he demands those recounts. There are no allegations of vote fraud. No indications of illegality. Just an attempt by Democrats to use selective recounts to steal a close election.

There you go. Exactly 50 words to put this whole thing in perspective.

I can’t believe I actually heard this on TV. I don’t remember who the parties involved were, but I was watching Fox News Channel last week when I actually heard a TV anchor nail a Gore campaign spokesman on rhetoric.

The Goron was talking about Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris "deciding" that the deadline for turning in election results would be 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The anchor interrupted. "Wait a minute. Decided? It’s not something she ‘decided’, is it? Isn’t that deadline set forth in Florida law?"

We heard a few seconds of something that sounded like a two-cycle engine running out of gas. Then the Goron quickly moved on to something else.

Another reason why Fox News Channel is becoming one of my favorites.

Here’s a lovely little quote from a recent

"The consensus in my high school is that oral sex makes girls popular whereas intercourse would make them outcasts."

Nice, huh? That’s somebody’s daughter saying that. Lynn Ponton is a psychiatrist at the University of California at San Franscisco. She wrote the book "The Sex Lives of Teenagers." Ponton told

Yup, you got it! "Oral sex isn’t sex."

And where do they get this idea?

Right again. From Bill Clinton. Over and over these kids tell each other and researchers, "Clinton said oral sex isn’t sex. The president did it."

Ponton also says that oral sex is mentioned far more often in the media – again, after the publicity of Clinton’s actions.

Great guy, this Clinton. Hey, moms. While you’re wishing you could have four more years under this wonderful man, your daughter is out there …

Oh, just never mind.

By the way, do you know that some of your daughters are coming down (after going down) with gonorrhea of the throat?

What a legacy.
