Just unbelievable.  The video was apparently shot on a cellphone in Pennsylvania.

I posted this link over at the St. Louis Post Dispatch message board and was met with immediate push back from the right.  Here are some of their comments.

"IT HAS HAPPENED COUNTLESS TIME GOING THE OPPOSITE WAY, ALL LIBERALS SAID WAS EITHER TOO BAD, OR NOTHING AT ALL.  the simple response at the polls when this happens should be to automaticly shut this machine down until it can be re-calibrated.

"Agreed. The machine should be recalibrated, tested, and if still not working correctly, shut down and not used for polling. "

"It's an uncalibrated screen. If they just touched slightly lower it would be fine. Nothing to see here. "

Those responses came in less than a minute after I posted.  All very similar.  All saying it was just some standard technical issue.  The last poster adds the jedi mind trick "Nothing to see here.  [Move along.]"  Makes one wonder if the response was coordinated or just a bunch of right leaning citizens with the same interest in squelching online conversation regarding election fraud and who just happened to be cruising the same message board at the instant I posted.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
