17. Yes, there are many "improbabilities" such as this that "favor" Bush.

Way too many to have occurred just by chance.

Another good example is the "Dixiecrat defection" in Florida. This was dismissed way to easily; and definitely deserves another look. Once again, they (Bushco) "created doubt", and were allowed to get away with it. The percent changes in many counties (from Gore to Kerry) are just too glaring. And the "son of the South" argument just doesn't hold up since Gore didn't even win his own state.

I think we need to revisit ALL of these obvious "anomalies" and start building sound hypotheses of HOW they pulled it off (see link below for more thoughts on this).

Further, I think it's OK to speculate (brainstorm) on how it was done, but we need to support these hypotheses with carefully constructed logic and facts (as I just did with the RBR hypothesis). Admittedly, sometimes it is much easier to do than other times (as it was with the RBR hypothesis), but it must be done in each case just the same. Otherwise, our credibility suffers, and the "weak links" can be used in an attempt to taint the whole case (create doubt).

The evidence the election was stolen is overwhelming, now we just must carefully put the case together.
