      If you actually read Brad Blog you'll know that he's never said that Diebold stole any election, or that 2004 was stolen, or anything of the kind.  He's never accused them or any voting machine company or any person or group of stealing any election, only investigated the technology issues of e-voting.  

      Please don't mischaracterize the content and information on the site!

      but that doesn't mean I run every stop sign, or any particular stop sign.

      I think it would be very difficult to steal the NH primary through voting maching manipulation in the most-watched event in the country without any leaks or detection, particularly given the fact that Clinton won in many different geographic areas.  The scenario for a successful election-rigging scheme would be quite different, involving a very small number of geographic or electoral units that could tip the balance one way or another.  So, is voting fraud possible?  Sure.  Are there Republicans who will resort to it?  Sure.  Is the result of the NH primary likely to have been the result of a complex, undetected vote-rigging scheme?  Not likely.

        but I'm just not man enough to make it.

        Well, it would be about the right intellectual level for this diary.

        •  I'm too dim to ferret the joke out just now, (0+ / 0-)

          but I'll take it on faith.  No need to explain further.
