36. I will say whatever I want and have confidence in whatever I want.

No, I don't claim to be an "expert", but I know more about this community than people who have never been here, no? I was born and raised here. Have you ever even heard of Waukesha County or Brookfield before this? Doubt it. Have you marched in Madison since this started? I have. Have you participated in local recall efforts here? I have.

Look, you have put words into my mouth and thrown out ridiculous strawman arguments implying I am defending this clerk and/or don't want an investigation and you're totally wrong. Let's review the things I think you and I agree on:

1) We TOTALLY want Kloppenburg to win.
2) The Waukesha County Clerk is a corrupt asshole
3) This needs to be thoroughly investigated
4) A recount with FULL hand count MUST happen
5) Any and all corruption or fraud needs to be fully exposed and prosecuted if found

See... that's a lot, no? The things that we disagree about are ALL theorectical. We disagree about what did happen, what people's motives might have been and what will happen. All of these things will either be worked out or we'll flat out never know. Stop acting like I I don't care. I care more than you can ever comprehend. Stop acting like I am defending this county clerk, I am not and I will not. Ever. Stop with the strawmman arguments that I think we should not investigate, I've made my opinion very clear on that. Stop implying that I am a "troll" because I don't agree with every specific theory to which you subscribe.

I will continue to shoot down wild and crazy theories made by people who don't understand the processes or people here in WI, specifically my community. I was born and raised here. Similarily, I concede that I don't know EVERYTHING and have learned some things AND admitted I was wrong when corrected. But I assure you, I *know* the makeup of this community and Nate Silver clearly gets it, too.
