24. Are these the same intelligent people..
Edited on Wed Aug-17-05 02:25 PM by TruthIsAll
You:
If you mean that I am assuming that 43% of 2004 voters _actually_ voted for Bush in 2000, and only 37% _actually_ voted for Gore in 2000 -- no, I neither assume nor believe that. I don't know anyone who does. (And so you might stop to wonder: how can anyone see that figure and not think the election was stolen? But you should ask the question seriously, not rhetorically, because many intelligent people who have seen the figure do not think the election was stolen.)

Me:

Are these the same "intelligent" people who believe that

- Bush legitimately won the 2000 election in Florida?
- the Repubs legitimately won the senate in 2002?
- Bush won Ohio without the help of Ken Blackwell?
- Bush won Florida without the help of Jeb Bush?
- The reason why Diebold/Es&S didn't include a voter-verified ballot was to save cost?
- All those new, young female voters wanted Bush?
- The reason why the early exit poll results were never mentioned in the media was because they had no meaning?
- The reason that the Final Exit Poll matched to the vote count was because the vote count is accurate?
- Mitofsky is a great exit pollster with 25 years of experience who only hired inexperienced polltakers when a Bush was running?
- The exit polls were uniformly biased throughout the states to favor Kerry?
- that it's just a coincidence that the exit polls were accurate, (according to Mitofsky's own data) in those districts where paper ballots were used?
- that Republicans who controlled the design, manufacturing and programming of the voting machines fought against a paper trail and with machines that could never pass certification?
- who give you talking points?

You mean those people?

Oh.
