In which we learn just how crooked and corrupt is our election system

Courtesy of Vox (Yeah, I know).

So now that the fabled Blue Wave might be dissipating, we're hearing more and more stories about - wait for it! - corruption at the polling booth! 

So, to recap, in 2000 and 2004 we learned just how corrupt, dishonest, and crooked was America's entire election process. 

Then in 2008 everything got fixed and was awesomely swell. 

Then in 2016, when almost every human being on the planet (including yours truly) assumed Clinton would continue the Left wing swing, Trump said the election system was rigged.  How dare he!  How dare he say this, the greatest of all elections systems in history, is anything but pure and wonderful.  He was universally castigated for saying such a horrible thing.

Then, of course, Trump won and we learned that the entire 2016 election was a fraud with stolen votes, voter intimidation and a vast Commie Pinko conspiracy to help Trump steal the election.

While stories have continued to circulate about the attempt to protect us from outside interference, there has been little in the news about actual voter fraud or corrupt election processes expected for the Midterms.  Until the last few weeks when, for some strange reason, I've started hearing more and more about voter fraud, corruption and the polls and of course that ever corrupt and wicked electoral process that is America's democracy.

I'm sure this has nothing to do with the sudden ebbing of the Democrat's blue wave and the growing realization that the Democrats may only win the House - if that.

Nah, it couldn't be that.  I'm sure there's something else out there that accounts for the above tendencies and story-lines.
