  •  I think a more apt analogy (4+ / 0-)

    is an information packet about how to avoid being gored by a unicorn.

    •  Well, election fraud does exist... (0+ / 0-)

      Beyond the cases going on in Virginia (destroyed registrations) and Indiana (purging of the rolls), there are many other historical examples of missing ballots, re-discovered ballot boxes, vote shaving, and other stuff, going back to antiquity, so this isn't unicorn fantasy we're dealing with.  I do doubt sincerely that it can occur on a scale and to a degree that will affect the outcome. How many thousands of election workers and officials would have to be in on the conspiracy, and how many others would have to be bought off, and how many others still would have to be totally quiet about what they observed for this to work, multiplied by the number of states necessary to effect a Rmoney victory?  THAT is the goat in the corner, eating your slippers and giving you the WTF look.

      As we have concurred elsewhere, though, the "my mutual fund portfolio gives me control over the output of the electronic voting machines" is indeed a unicorn, and a fat, hairy one at that.  

      •  no conspiracy needed. (2+ / 0-)

        Just a climate in which rules are eroded and opportunities to cheat exist.  

        Then, like ants following each others' scent to find the food, a statistically observable number of the GOP faithful will follow the trail and bring home little tiny particles of the food.  With enough ants, an animal carcass in the woods can be stripped clean to the bones pretty damn quickly.  

        Nature builds with few and simple rules.

        "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!

      ... so much time and effort trying to prove they don't exist?
