THE NEW MATH : FAITH-BASED ARITHMETIC 101
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 12:35 PM by TruthIsAll
Date Time.................. Total. Kerry Votes..Bush Votes
11/03 2:00PM-CNN: 13660 48.43% 6616 51.23% 6998
11/03 12:23AM-WP: 13047 50.78% 6625 48.43% 6319

DIFFERENCE ............... 613 -2.35% -9. 2.80% 679

Kerry's vote total DECLINED BY NINE (9) AFTER THE POLLS CLOSED.

You would think he'd get at least SOME of the LAST 613 POLLED, since he was winning a clear majority of the FIRST 13,047.

You would think that.
BUT NO.
YOU WOULD BE WRONG.

I CAN CALCULATE THE ODDS OF KERRY GETTING ANY NUMBER (N) VOTES OF THE FINAL 613.

BUT I CAN'T CALCULATE THE ODDS OF KERRY GETTING LESS THAN ZERO (-N) VOTES.

EVEN EINSTEIN COULDN'T CALCULATE THAT.

BUT APPARENTLY SOME CAN.

THE GOP AND THE MEDIA HAVE REDUCED SIMPLE THIRD-GRADE ARITHMETIC TO FAITH-BASED SCIENCE.

4. Psuedo-science, faith-based math. And the Orwellian media will push it.

5. There was a divinely induced
tremor in the space-time continuum that altered the vote-event history.
Essentially the other Universe where would have Kerry won the election had an abrupt discontinuity and followed a different path in space-time.
As Rod Serling would have said "you have entered the 'twilight zone'.
