157. So... you would never buy one of these systems.
What I am saying is that no one would. Why design a product without a market? You couldn't sell these pieces of shit anywhere! In the whole world! No one is stupid enough or incompetent enough to purchase any product this crappy. And they are friggen expensive.

Now, add to this the fact that the guy who did build and sell them admitted that he would deliver Ohio for Bush, before the election.

Unlike autorank's burglary analogy, this is different. It's more like you have the guy on security tapes entering the house. All the good stuff is missing. But since he turned off the camera before he left with the goods someone winds up arguing "well, he could have broke in for some other reason than to steal stuff. May be he's incompetent. There's no proof that he took anything."

And of course since all the good stuff is missing, there is no missing stuff to show to anyone to prove that the stuff is missing.

Imagine it. No verification of the vote. No review of the proprietary software. No one would buy this. Ever! Why build it?

(Incidentally, if ANY verifiable system were rigged to produce false tallies and display a false ballot image, then the rigged system would be there as proof of the rigging.)
