Apparently the RNC Does Believe in Democracy

Just not in places like Florida and Ohio.

In my inbox last night was an ad for a book from my 'friends' at the GOP. It read, in part:
In Natan Sharansky's new book, The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror (Public Affairs), he affirms President Bush's belief that peace can be achieved in the Middle East if we stay true to the ideals of democracy and the principles that make America thrive.

Optimism. President Bush relies on it as a key element for securing peace and freedom around the world. Sharansky agrees with the President's optimistic approach. He doesn't question whether we can bring democracy to the Middle East, but argues that it's critical for security around the world, and with strength, determination, and fierce optimism, we will combat tyranny and terror and make great strides towards world peace.
So we send an army to install democracy in the middle east (justification #237 in a series on Why We Invaded Iraq), while the GOP actively attempts to disenfranchise voters in swing states. Nice.
