  •   Gore is Class, Bush an Ass. (4.00)
    Al Gore is a credit to Tennesee and America.   It is a shame that fundamentalist wackjobs and lunatic right wingers in Tennesee voted for Bush--why didn't they trust their own Son?

      This is too good not to steal!

      I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks in Sozadee CA.

    •  Gore and Tennessee (none)
      Gore took Tennessee for granted.  His people here keep telling him "don't worry about Tennessee," while to many of us sat on our butts and didn't do enough.

      Bush campaigned hard in Tennessee especially in the historically Republican territory of East Tennessee. He visited Tennessee twice as much as Gore in the run-up to the election.  Plus they foisted these lies on Tennesseans: "He's not really from Tennessee he grew up in Washington. OR He's forgotten his roots."

      It was still close here.  I am ashamed that I didn't do more, as are a lot of people.  I don't think that the people here would fail Gore again and I don't think he would ever take Tennessee for granted again.

    •  Tennessee (none)
      You don't really know the vote count in Tennessee in 2000.

      Pages from poll books were torn out on Election Day.  An entire poll book went missing for hours  [Graymar voting precinct]

      Link 1   [Scroll to "Nashville insanity"]
      Link 2  [Scroll to "History repeats in Tennessee"]

      There were places people came and couldn't vote, Antioch Middle School, Graymar, etc.

      Link 3 (best) [Scroll to Tennessee Voter Empowerment Team]

      Some of these links may be redundant, I'm rushing. Link 3 has extra info, I think. Also problems in Memphis.

      See also this section, where the author wrote "How and why I became involved."  Read about Hadley Park, too.
