In Fooled Again, renowned media critic Mark Crispin Miller argues that it wasn't “moral values” that swung the 2004 presidential race-it was theft. A huge array of anomalies, improper practices, and blatant violations of the law in state after state all happened to swing in the Bush ticket's favor. Fooled Again not only gives abundant evidence of theft, but also describes the mind-set among both the major parties and the media that could easily allow it to happen again in 2006 and 2008.

Mark Crispin Miller said, Despite our First Amendment-or because of it-countless crucial books have been adroitly ‘disappeared’ through methods far less crude than outright censorship, from threats of litigation to press black-outs and/or charges of ‘conspiracy theory. Such tactics have repeatedly erased those books that we most need to read, because of their important truths about the powers that be; and so our purpose is to bring those books to life again.

Mark Crispin Miller's 'Fooled Again' is a notable and worthwhile read when he sticks to the facts of the 2004 elections and the widespread problems encountered by voters in Ohio and elsewhere. Crispin's thesis, that voter suppression was practiced routinely by the Republican Party in 2004 and perhaps earlier, is documented compellingly and informatively in 'Fooled Again'.

That said, Miller periodically descends into shrill denunciations of the GOP and the Bush Administration that undercut the effectiveness of his narrative. Had the diatribes been cut, 'Fooled Again' would be a stronger read.

Bottom line: worthy of your time, but skip the portions heavy on rhetoric.

Tip: For another, extremely worthwhile, look at the 2004 election, try "Was the 2004 Election Stolen?" by Freedman and Bleifus.

With moves straight outta reconstruction hell, our home grown band of respectable national thugs and their sycophants have wrested control of the estate and are preparing to do so for a long period of time. The investigative prof has researched and pulled information from a wide variety of resources including Congressman Conyers report, to expose the scourge. Apparently these folk were prepared, organized, well monied and before the opposing parties knew what happened the nouveaux reconstructionist were off and running, planning and capturing the next election. The grand theft of two elections unfolded in various ways in various locales but it was nation wide. Paid gangs were sent outta Texas to harass and control the population, the motor voter bill was made impotent by the trashing of paper work from legit signees, expatriates paperwork never arrived, on college campuses students were led to believe they were supporting a cause but actually were signed up for the party, or not at all in some cases, voting machines logged in the wrong candidates, along with countless other improprieties and crimes, the list of which would exceed your average report...the madness didn't stop with the pawned...the fourth estate sat by and did nothing while the benefiting corporations made millions calling in political favors, the result of which set the estate back approximately 200 years or maybe further say.... back to the crusades? ....No wonder Mr. Franken has so much fodder for his work...Whatta civics lesson...

Well, this is a fast read and I expect a fast write! It has come out in a timely fashion
and I found it useful in explaining to my father some of what has gone wrong in this country re: vote-fraud. The anecdotes are excellent, not least in that they cover the whole nation, not just the most outrageously fraudulent vote in the state of Ohio; but I think we need more than outrage at anecdotes to get the terrible touch-screen DRE machines out of this country's system. People on the right will always argue that the republican intimidation
tactics and dirty tricks, while heinously wrong, were within the margin of Bush's victory. In order for voting to be at all fair we must have paper ballot/optical scan machines in case of the need for a recount. Jimmy Carter said the U.S. voting system isn't even good enough to be worth monitoring. I monitored in Albuquerque, NM in 2004 and I have to agree. PS: In my later review of Greg Palast's Armed Madhouse, I decide that the racial and class discrimination, aside from DRE's, was beyond the margin after all. So I raise this one to five stars.

We have almost entirely lost control over our Government. Our Government in turn is seeking greater and greater controls over us. If you care about the nature of the crimes that have been committed against us all in the last two Presidential elections then this is one of the most compelling books available on the subject. If you care about how to stop this crime from being repeated then Read This Book!

How is it that the carefully-researched, meticulously-documented, copiously-footnoted works of Administration critics are dismissed as madness, while the unsupported, categorical rhetoric of Administration supporters is accepted as common wisdom?

Miller is a clear and convincing writer. He's done his homework, and he makes a powerful case, calling the legitimacy of the Bush White House into question. This is a story that has been woefully neglected, even by the 'liberal' arm of the US press. It has been told piecemeal by internet bloggers and non-profit websites. In Europe and New Zealand (!) the story of the election heist of 2004 has been reported by the commercial press, and is common knowledge. But in America, it has been considered slightly loony to question the integrity of our electoral machinery.

'Fooled Again' may just prove to be a turning point for the conventional wisdom. What Miller has done with this book is far more than to document anecdotes of election fraud and put them in perspective. He paints for us a coherent picture that I, for one, have understood for the first time after reading his work. I had been familiar with the economic analysis of right-wing politics - the growing power of multinational corporations, the lobbyists and the PACS, and their dominance in setting our government's agenda. It had seemed to me to be the work of a distant, inaccessible money machine.

Miller adds a psychological perspective, making the actions of the power-grabbers very tangible, comprehensible and real. The subversion of our democracy was planned for decades by people who are not so much evil as afraid, and no more dishonest with us than they are with themselves. If the methods with which they push their agenda seem deceptive, autocratic and draconian, it is because they perceive their situation (and ours) to be desperate.

One weakness of the book is that it focuses exclusively on anecdotal evidence for election theft. There is another half of the story which is told by numerical evidence. The widespread statistical anomalies in the 2004 election provide a context for the anecdotes, so that they cannot be dismissed as isolated aberrations. The statistical story will be told in a forthcoming book by Steve Freeman.

Since November '04, I had been a follower of the internet dialogs about election fraud, and a minor contributor to the statistical analysis. I have found Miller's book to be empowering: He offers us a context in which we might hope to organize a new movement for electoral integrity, setting the system aright before it becomes entrenched.
