    The "get the dig in at kos" was directed at the diarist, not you. Sorry.

    •  Yes I did (3.66)
      because Hitchens conclusion on this was identical to mine: we have to do everything to get at those machines.

      The Kos administrators couldn't even be convinced to support the shitty recount we did get.

      And oh boy, did we take a lot of shit.

      So, yes, I HAD to get that dig in.

      •  The proof of the election was in the recount (4.00)
        ...and my favorite cheating technique was the stickers placed over the Kerry oval with the Bush oval filled in my hand. A creative way to cheat when there is a paper trail.
        •  All under the seal of the recount (4.00)
          Ballot tampering right in front of God and everybody, and yet, nothing was ever done about it.  And there really was little to no mention of those stickers in the press.  Certainly not outside of the state of Ohio.

          My favorite is the technician coming in to fix the machine and surprising the elections clerk who did not even know it needed to be fixed.  He swapped out some parts and asked what the recount numbers were, and told them how he could post a cheat sheet on the wall to make it easier for the poll commissioners to get the correct count.

          •  You mean that you like the stickers and swapping (4.00)
            better than running ballots through a machine over because the numbers don't match up, and then sending out for a new machine when those silly pesky numbers still won't cooperate?
