152. Paper ballots, counted in public, by hand is simply not going to happen, though.
Edited on Fri Nov-25-11 05:28 AM by No Elephants
So, yeah, it's voting machines and/or counting machines made by Diebold or by someone else.

And, even if paper ballots, counted in public by hand, were to happen, voting might not "save our ass."

For proof, I give you the federal elections of 2006 and 2008, esp. 2008. Overwhelming majoritiy in the House, 60 in the Democratic caucus in the Senate and a Democrat in the WH. Yet, my ass was not saved.

ETA: And for those who bring up Lieberman every time a knee jerks, the Senate rules could have been changed by a simple majority of Senators in January 2007, January, 2009 (and January 2011, but changing them then would have been too obvious).

Moreover, there is no evidence Lieberman was leaned on for anything besides supporting McCain.
