About this Item

xi, 226 p. Illustrations. Resources. A stinging, laugh-inducing look at how George W. Bush stole the 2000 presidential election, in words and pictures. A recent ABC News poll revealed that 35 percent of Americans or close to one hundred million people believe that President George W. Bush was not legitimately elected. In a wonderfully irreverent grab bag of facts, rumor, idle speculation, and unmitigated rage, Jews for Buchanan revisits the major events and decisions of the 2000 presidential race, and with a jaundiced if twinkling eye, outlines the overwhelming litany of mistakes, conflicts of interest, inappropriate behavior, and political abuse that were on display during this sorry episode in American political history. Drawing on a variety of sources, from the Annenburg Center's comprehensive collection of election-related documents to little-known websites, Jews for Buchanan covers the whole range of issues that don't pass the smell test: the intimidation of black voters; the disproportionate number of older Jewish residents of Florida who recorded votes for Patrick Buchanan; information about Katherine Harris's connections with the Bush campaign; arguments for the recusal of specific Supreme Court justices; communication between Jeb Bush's office and the Bush campaign; and the role of Republican aides in disrupting the recount all adding up to a powerful case that George W. Bush is merely a pretender. Combining quips and quotes with the best editorial cartoons and commentary from the election, Jews for Buchanan will be the ultimate memento of the 2000 election for millions of Americans. Good.

About this title


Traces the events leading up to the Bush victory in the 2000 presidential election, and argues that confusing ballots, a purge of the electorate, politically-motivated decisions, and related factors influenced the outcome.

From Publishers Weekly:

Nichols, an experienced political observer who writes for the Nation, assembles an impressively wide array of little-known information about the 2000 election in Florida: how TV network cutbacks left them short of news resources and vulnerable to spin and bad-faith attacks; how several counties with optical-scan equipment capable of catching mismarked ballots had high error rates because officials disabled the function to save money; how the "butterfly ballot" cost Gore over 8,500 votes, and a rush to judgment overlooked the clear precedent of a court-ordered revote in the 1968 presidential election; how a Reconstruction-era law disenfranchising felons cost Gore roughly 85,000 votes, and how Bush's and Katherine Harris's offices combined to purge the votes of thousands of supposed "ex-felons," including one county election supervisor; how blacks, with 11% of eligible voters, constituted 44% of those "scrubbed" from voter rolls and 54% of rejected ballots; how Republicans quietly challenged and disqualified hundreds of overseas Gore votes; and many other examples. Nichols combines a journalistic, point-by-point style with engaging, conversational, sometimes chilling and sometimes humorous anecdotes: Pat Buchanan, for instance, jokes about how he prayed to God not to let his epitaph read "The Man Who Cost George W. Bush the Presidency," and wholeheartedly agrees that the butterfly ballot helped save him from this particular ignominy. This volume will leave little doubt in the minds of many that Gore was robbed. But Nichols doesn't dryly build a case; he tells compelling stories revolving around the deeper, more troubling notion that the American people and democracy itself were robbed. 34 b&w illus.
