Because there’s no Florida left to screw up the voting!
Received from the future: Late October 2004
During August and September, a series of violent hurricanes (Charley, Frances and Ivan) completely destroyed the US state of Florida, forcing President George Bush to reduce the number of US states to 49. The entire state vanished, swept away into the ocean by the extreme weather.
‘Florida just ain’t there no more’, said President Bush at the time. ‘And now I got my brother Jeb and his family camped out in the Lincoln bedroom. They’re driving me batshit crazy. I can tell you, the Bush family has never experienced a humanitarian crisis of this magnitude’.
But worse was to come. The Bush Administration had spent four years ignoring the effects of industrial pollution on the atmosphere, as well as the threat of global warming and extreme weather. It had failed to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, or recognise the effects of carbon dioxide pollution. Ironically, this ignorance was to destroy Bush’s chances to emulate the ‘theft of presidency’ that occured in 2000.
With no Florida left to exploit in the 2004 election, the Republicans have their work cut out for them. This time, they may actually have to depend on the uncontrollable beast is that is the voting public. Unless they find another state (above water) where they can compromise the vote…
