8. One thing I should have said in my OP
In response to Gumbel's statement that the Bush margin of victory of over 100,000 in Ohio was "unassailable" and that those numbers can't easily be pulled out of thin air from electronic tabulating machines:

Just a few pages earlier Gumbel, in describing the 2002 Georgia Governor's race and Senate race, implied precisely that. The turnaround in both races from pre-election polls to the official results was far greater than the Bush margin over Kerry in Ohio. And yet Gumble indicated that he was highly skeptical of those Georgia results. It appears like he feels that it's ok to postulate election theft for a state race, but not for a U.S. President.
