In response to:

Electoral College Is Democratic, Not democratic

In spite of what many on the tea party, Limbaugh-right have been led to believe, Obama is not a dictator. He is not some puppet-master pulling all the strings. That he has the ability to control election investigations, when they by law would be bi-partisan, is absurd.
In 2000, conservatives were obligated to explain why they supported preservation of the Electoral College even though it produced a victory for their candidate, George W. Bush. In coming elections, their devotion may face a sterner test: Will they favor it if Democrats win the White House even when Republicans carry the popular vote?

Mitt Romney managed to avoid that problem by coming up short across the board. But while Republicans have noticed that the voting public is changing in ways that don't help the GOP, they may not have noticed that the electoral map has also shifted to their clear disadvantage.
