  •  I still say there's a possibility that's a clean (2.16)
    vote count that wasn't manipulated, because I know an awful lot of conservatives who were planning to vote for one of the conservative third party candidates. Yet none of them mysteriously racked up these anti-Bush votes. Ah but here's a precinct where they did. So what makes you think it's automatic fraud when it could very well reflect the real conservative sentiment elsewhere? I fully expected both Peroutka and Badnarik to do much better than they did based on being surrounded by conservatives in my everyday life. Now where did their third-party votes go?
    •  because it's a democratic precinct (none)
      I'd say you were right if it were a traditionally Republican or independent precinct, but for a 90% Democratic precinct to go for the reactionary candidate?  That makes as much sense as a bunch of elderly Jews voting for Buchanan.

      •  Yea and it's going to suck the big one (3.00)
        when a recount identifies the culpable glitch and those 215 anomalous Peroutka votes were actually intended for W, while Kerry's votes just came up short because of the standard tangible suppression efforts of bottlenecked queus and challenged voters.
    •  yes there is a possibility of a clean vote (none)
      alot of things are possible.
