142. it would be great if we all admitted that there's a lot we don't know
I suspect that if you count all the statements that there definitely wasn't election fraud, and all the statements that there definitely was, you'll find more in the latter pile. Neither position really makes sense -- although I do think that a lot of folks in the latter category are ignoring some well-established facts.

Even the comment you replied to doesn't actually say that there definitely wasn't election fraud. It lampoons some people's propensity to claim election fraud at the proverbial drop of a hat. Not very helpful humor, but I did laugh. I've been smeared here many times for challenging people's fraud narratives, and it is fun to be able to laugh about it. It doesn't mean that I'm sure election fraud never happens, that I'm sure election fraud didn't happen in _____, that I'm opposed to people asking questions or stating doubts, that I work for Diebold, etc., etc. It tends to be the more extreme voices on all sides who set the tone, and that's too bad. Most of us, whatever we think or say, are basically just muddling along.
