NY Post article, in part

Six so-called "SWAT teams" of lawyers and political operatives will be situated around the country with fueled-up jets awaiting Kerry's orders to speed to a battleground state. The teams have been told to be ready to fly on the evening of the election to begin mounting legal and political fights. Every battleground state will have a SWAT team within an hour of its borders.

The Kerry campaign has recount office space in every battleground state, with plans so detailed they include the number of staplers and coffee machines needed to mount legal challenges.

"Right now, we have 10,000 lawyers out in the battleground states on Election Day, and that number is growing by the day," said Michael Whouley, a Kerry confidant who is running election operations at the Democratic National Committee (news - web sites).


While the lawyers litigate, political operatives will try to shape public perception. Their goal would be to persuade voters that Kerry has the best claim to the presidency and that Republicans are trying to steal it.

Democrats are already laying the public relations groundwork by pointing to every possible voting irregularity before the Nov. 2 election and accusing Republicans of wrongdoing.

On Election Day, Whouley will head the so-called "boiler room," probably in Washington, that tracks vote counts and ensures Kerry doesn't concede too soon. Whouley was the aide who, after noticing Florida was too close to call in 2000, called Gore's team in Tennessee and told them to put the brakes on the concession speech.

How do you tell goose from gander? Is there an important difference?

It's damned important if you're a goose or a gander.

...according to another thread, it's all about choice. If you "choose" to be a gander, but someone else says you're a goose, then, I guess it does matter doesn't it?

I guess it depends on who is footing the bill.

Thanks, but I'm really not into smoking crack.

How about if I register Santa Claus, Donner, Blitzen, Dasher,Prantzer, Rudolph, Sneezy, Dopey, Sleepy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duke, General Lee, Mickey Mouse, Linda Lovelace, Peter Piper, and What's his name? You know, the guy who invented the internet? They could all be Dimmercrats, of course.

If I sign them all up do you suppose I could get paid a case of beer or a couple bottles of Boones Farm?
