Has Repug commentator Sean Hannity admitted that the GOP intends to steal this year's midterm elections?
That's the first thing that I thought after reading (courtersy of Media Matters) Hannity's comments on the October 18 edition of his syndicated radio show. He encouraged Democrats to stay home and not bother voting on November 7, in part because "your vote doesn't matter anyway."
Hannity said on his radio show: "I want you to stay home on Election Day because you must accept the fact that your party has abandoned you. You've gotta accept the fact that your vote doesn't matter anyway. So all you Democrats, stay home. So, you know, why don't you stay home on Election Day? This is how the press is going to report this: "Hannity says Democrats should stay home on Election Day."
Now I ask Mr. Hannity: What precludes Democrats' votes from mattering? If Democrats show up to vote on November 7, why wouldn't their votes count? Perhaps too many Diebold machines and too many Republicans willing to tap into Diebold's software and switch votes around, perhaps? Voter supression, perhaps?
Hannity to Democrats: "[S]tay home on Election Day ... for the sake of the nation"
