38. Does someone else remember this: shortly after Nov 2 one of the blog
reporters (i.e., one of the people posting or cited in major blogs regularly and accorded trust for their accuracy) posted a report of a face-to-face encounter with Teresa and John Kerry. I remember the description but I did not save it and do not have a link to it. I also don't recall which of the major blog personalities it was -- it may have been in Will Pitt's blog, but I am by no means sure of that; at that time I was monitoring a lot of blogs.

What he reported was that he talked about the evidence pouring in that the vote in Ohio and elsewhere was subject to election fraud on a large scale. He went through some of the particulars and said more information was coming in all the time. He was saying that the election might have been stolen. What I particularly recall is his description of the reactions of Theresa and John to this monolog. Theresa, he said, reacted with obvious anger and strong concern. John, on the other hand, had a different response. I recall the blogger saying "His eyes sort of glazed over," and going on to say that it was clear that John thought he was spinning groundless conspiracy theories. He showed no interest at all and seemed turned off by the blogger's report.

At the time I read this in the first few weeks after the election, I was concerned but hoped that maybe John was just being cagey and knew much more than he was letting on. But now I think it likely that he really did doubt that there was enough election fraud to change the outcome. He did concede very quickly, while the election watchers were still en route to report on the widespread fraud evidence they observed.

Does anyone else remember this report? It's driving me nuts to have forgotten who this was. In retrospect, what he saw and reported seems rather prescient.
