It's Not That We Don't Care...

It's just that we're tired of the election...

For every hare-brained supposed piece of evidence (even if it's presented by a respectable sportscaster, cum infotainer Keith Obermann) there's usually a good explanation. In this case the Yale Free Press is on the case.

Conspiracy theorists and liberals of all sorts for some reason believe that all of the inconsistencies they are just now discovering are a brand new phenomenon. They're not... Elections are the ultimate sausage factory experience - they always have been, and to a certain extent they always will be.

And, of course, when you point out a certain shockingly widespread and consistent set of "irregularities", they claim you're trying to disenfranchise people.

And newsrooms aren't sausage factories?

Explain to me why it's more important to focus on the validity of CBS news stories than the integrity of the elections they're intended to influence?

I think Olbermann's goal is to make sure Michael Moore doesn't walk away from the election as the Most Irrelevant Media Personality.

Olbermann defies definition. Newsman doesn't work. Sports caster... no dice.

The best available term is tin foil hatter.

Oh, and the drones on the New York Times forums are lapping up the "Bush stole the election" theme. Too bad Kruggles the Klown can't get him some of this conspiracy action...

I remember Olbermann from when he worked in SF before his big makeover. By makeover I mean the physical kind. He really looked like a geek back then. In fact, he did bear an uncanny resemblance to LaToya.

McCain:

Even with my city shades on, I am almost positive that LaToya Jackson and Al Gore are not the same person. But Oberman and Gore? Open your eyes, o you who are easily hoodwinked.

I think it is funny that Msnbc Does not know how to read the election results directs.

For Fairview Park in CUYAHOGA COUNTY,

The number of regular ballots cast was 8524.

The next step is to add in the absentee ballots. The total ballots cast on the report says 18, 742.
That count includes absentee ballots for congressional districts, etc. The absentee ballots are counted by " by Congressional, House, and Senate district combinations." Because of this, the ballots cast totals for municipalities on this web page and on the summary report needs to be derived by using the following technique: For municipalities with wards, find the ballots cast total for each ward and total them.


MSNBC did read what the report means!

Omni:

Liberals can't admit that something has been going on forever without their knowledge... and they seem to have forgotten about Kennedy/Nixon '60 (courtesy of Chicago's infamous Daily machine and the "graveyard vote") and Tammany Hall (New York City), whose power to make sure whoever they chose got elected was in full force by 1840 and lasted until 1932.
