27 November 2000 - the one count

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

Slouching Toward Washington to be Inaugurated

Three counts for mountebanks out of the eye,
Seven for the turf lords with their telephones,
Nine for candidates, doomed to lie,
One for the media with its high tone,
On the television where you learn to buy.
One count to fool them all, one count to blind them,
One count to fix on so they’ll never look behind them.
On the television where you learn to buy.

clue:

That’s right, Sauron is secretly orchestrating the election. You heard it here first!

give me a clue so sweet and true
