21. but that's not what I meant by the terms!

(edit to clarify the "you" in the last graf)

Again, the skeptic vs. true-believer continuum doesn't have to do with whether one believes in fraud or not.

Time for change and I argue about this stuff, but it isn't a "debate," because we are on the same side, trying to answer the same questions. A lot of folks who seem to agree with TFC about fraud also seem to think that he is on the opposite side. A lot of people seem to think that Bruce O'Dell is on the opposite side. I don't see how that can be, but if we are going to be on opposite sides, maybe we should figure out what the sides are, which is what andym was trying to do. (I think some folks have proposed "academic" vs. "activist," but Bruce O'Dell has better activist credentials than most of us, so that doesn't seem right.) I guess like anything else on DU, if it doesn't work for you, you can ignore it.

I'm not going to make any predictions about how many people will believe in the future that the 2004 election was stolen. Time will tell. But I thank you, TIA, for giving me credit for being open to persuasion. And I totally agree with MelissaG (and you) that the status quo is intolerable. Arguing about who won an election 7 1/2 months ago -- that stinks. On that, I see no sides here.
