99. Did not catch this was for me
Interesting syllogism:

If F then K (F=fraud; K=Kerry won)

If F then ~E (E= exit poll correct)(hidden assumption)

Therefore K and ~E.

I affirm the first proposition, but I don't the second. How does this make me inconsistent? Remember fraud is a class of actions that does not necessitate fraud manifest in the national exit poll. If I beleive that Ohio is stolen, how would that be manifest in the national exit poll, Ohio is one state, and enough to give Kerry the electoral college.

Do I believe that Fraud stole the popular vote from Kerry. It could be possible, but only by suppression, and that cannot be measured by an exit poll.
