17. I think you guys need to read my paper
You are attacking a straw man.

I am not supporting the rBr. I am saying it is consistent with the data we have. The two are not the same.

My paper did two things: it called into question the variable that E-M used to test the rBr (which should please you guys), and it also called into question the inference made by USCV that vote corruption was greatest in Bush strongholds.

I don't even rule out vote-corruption everywhere. Please read the paper if you are going to discuss my conclusions.

And rBr is, contrary to your assertion, a testable hypothesis. I am arguing that it has not, to date, been adequately tested.

It is a more testable hypothesis than fraud, simply because there are so many fraud hypotheses to test.

The best proof of fraud would be a conviction. I'd like to see Blackwell convicted. His obstruction of the Ohio recount was criminal, no?
