God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

My thoughts exactly!

Indeed the entire impetus for the Democrats' drive to reclaim the White House has been a palpable Bush-hatred rather than anything positive about their own candidates. - David Limbaugh, in a quote that crystalizes why my vote is still up for grabs.

Bush is horrible, and Kerry isn't good enough to rate with his own people against a horrible candidate.
