141. nope
It's sort of amazing that you would quote someone accurately and then misquote him immediately afterwards. Do you really not see a difference between "Bush could possibly have won" and "Bush won"? Do you expect no one else to notice? Are you so used to thinking in absolutes that words like "could" and "possibly" don't even register? Do you really not see how rhetoric like "airtight" changes the character of the argument? Or do you just think that this particular polemical line is politically effective even though it alienates even many DUers?

If you don't see why this kind of behavior hurts not only your credibility but the credibility of your allies, well, it is just too bad.
