140. hi, just as a point of information on the OP
anaxarchos is firmly convinced that Bush could not have won, and most of the OP is laying out his argument, and I don't object to that. (Cocoa may, but I doubt he would have gotten this hot if the OP had stuck to politics.)

What I vehemently object to is the insistence that the case is "airtight," and the insinuation that anyone who isn't convinced by it is among the "Republicans," and the insinuation elsewhere that anyone who questions it is damaging the movement, and the endearing thought that a "great wheel... will roll over and destroy all who get in our way" (#97). I don't think all this has anything to do with following up on and supporting investigations. It's a weird impulse that I don't want to see in a progressive movement. And I absolutely agree with you that it doesn't characterize all voting activists by a long shot. (In fact, I don't think I disagree with anything you wrote; I'm just amplifying some points.)
