Beside Themselves with Anger

My inbox is increasingly full of frantic pleas for help:

I have to agree with the statement, "Even Democrat strategists concede that 'if we can't win in this environment, we have to question the whole premise of the party.'" Only I might change the words "the party" to "the American political system." Frankly, if the Republicans triumph in this climate, we could well be looking at a future of one-party rule of the sort Japan or Mexico had for decades. And that's putting it mildly. Those conspiracy theorists sometimes get on my nerves, but the fact that the name "Diebold" contains the word Dieb does give me pause.
