120. I didn't challenge him, others did
I've almost given up on talking substantively on DU about election reform. Literally years ago, I gave that up as a waste of energy and thought due to the crude dishonesty of the whole debate, and limited my contributions to what I think is the very important task of pointing out that dishonesty.

My initial post on this thread was in this vein. I made the point suggestively, let me make it explicit now: the original post in this thread destroys the credibility of the election reformers here because it is admitting you're simply not going to accept Bush could possibly have won. Incredibly, it is arguing that all allegations of fraud are automatically true, because of what we think of Bush.

It is actually saying that no evidence is necessary.

So one wonders about all the evidence that is presented, how could anyone take it seriously when the researchers have already admitted their minds were made up already?

The most incredible thing is that the original poster would admit it, they must know the listeners are well trained enough not to notice what I'm pointing out.
