The Republican arguments against fraud - from A to Z

a) Exit polls are inherently flawed.
Only the vote counts are accurate.

b) Raw exit poll data is unusable.
Exit polls are flawed anyway.

c) Democrats may have scammed the exit polls for Kerry.

d) The exit poll "cluster" factor widens the margin of error.
Exit polls are flawed anyway.

e) Exit polls in Ukraine are OK, but not so in the U.S.

f) ALL exit poll statistics related to demographics, etc., are accurate, EXCEPT for the presidential vote. Oh, I forgot, exit polls are flawed.

g) Undecideds broke 4-1 for Bush.

h) Repubs were justified in NOT including a paper trail in HAVA. Democrats were out of line in demanding it.

i) If there was fraud, the media would have reported it.

j) Internet mathematicians are conspiracy freaks

k) It's common policy to ADJUST Exit poll data to match the vote. Exit polls are flawed, anyway.

l) Zogby has a poor track record. His methodology is flawed.

m) There is not a shred of evidence that Bush ever stole an election - not in 2000, 2002 or in 2004.

n) Mathematical odds of 1 in 13.5 trillion that Bush could have deviated beyond the MOE from the exit polls to the votes in 16 states proves nothing. Its just math masturbation.

o) Voting by paper is low-tech and time-consuming.

p) Diebold has complied 100% with state regulations and citizen requests. They provide a paper trail for ATM's. That's enough.

q) Democrat are just sore losers. The nation is conservative.

r) The election is over. Get over it.

s) Rove KNEW the real voting results; no one else did. His polls were NOT flawed. Exit polls are flawed.

t) Kerry ran a bad campaign. His internal polls were flawed.

u) The American people and John Conyers don't need the raw data.
v) The American people and John Conyers don't need the software.
w) The American people and John Conyers don't need the machines.

x) It's OK that Republican manufacture the machines.
y) It's OK that Republicans write the code.
z) It's OK that Republicans count the votes.
