Has Bush's plan to export democracy succeeded?

And is there only a finite supply? Because if America is exporting democracy in large quantities, there won't be much left for us here at home, will there?

Or so I start to muse after reading Bill Mon's take on Tuesday's Ohio congressional election,
Whiskey Bar: Too Close for Comfort:

Of course, none of this proves, or even makes a circumstantial case, that yesterday's election was stolen. Maybe the inhabitants of Clerrmont County really are just unusually witless in their devotion to the GOP cause. I live in a Republican machine county myself, so I know how that goes.

But it's still rather remarkable how often the lightning seems to strike in Clermont -- and at the just the right time, producing just the right amount of votes for an otherwise endangered GOP candidate. Like I said, I'd feel a lot better about it if the party stalwarts who run the county's elections were describing the inner workings of the system to a grand jury -- under oath.
