Don't Make Me Say, "I Told You So."

In Greek mythology, Cassandra was a Trojan princess whose beauty compelled Apollo to grant her the gift of prophecy. But when she did not return his love, Apollo placed a curse on her so that no one would ever believe her predictions so that her gift of prophecy would bring only endless pain and frustration.

On a related note, via Boing-Boing:
[BBC investigative reporter] Greg Palast says 4.5 million votes will be shoplifted in 2008, thanks largely to the “Rove-bots” that have been placed in the Justice Department following the U.S. Attorney firings. Being the guy who uncovered the voter “purge lists” of 2000 that disenfranchised black voters, he’s worth listening to, even if the mainstream press chooses not to.

This time around, he claims to have the 500 emails that the House subpoenaed and Karl Rove claims were deleted forever. They prove definitively, says Palast, that the Justice Department is infested with operatives taking orders from Rove to steal upcoming elections for Republicans and permanently alter the Department.
Go read the interview with Palast and decide for yourself if he is right or if he's wrong. (Or if he's being set up like Dan Rather?)

And keep this quote from the BBC reporter in mind: "[T]here’s no First Amendment in England. I’m wrong, I’m sued, I’m broke, I’m toast."
