The election is rigged!

Well, not really.  Candidate He Who Shall not Be Named has a habit of grasping at straws and wacked-out excuses when things don't go his way.  His treatment of women, his cheating of his contractors, his lie of the week day hour, and his outrageous claims -- the only result of his ordering the tide to stop would be to say the ocean was rigged.

It's true that in the past, several Presidential elections have had questionable results:  Bush-Gore and Kennedy-Nixon come to mind.  But Al Gore accepted the supreme Court decision on that election and Richard Nixon felt it would harm the country to protest the results of the Kennedy election.

In 1876, their was another election that was in doubt, one that would be referred to as "The Stolen Election."  Rutherford B. Hayes vs. Samuel Tilden.
