37. And nice to see you again too
I must have been missing you.

And I won't tear apart your math, for reasons given above. I'm not disputing your math (although I'd like it if you didn't tear apart my friend).

But proving that something is not statistically possible is not the same as proving causality, as you will know. There is more than one way of interpreting the result.

And I simply do not share your assumption that people correctly reported who they voted for in 2000. They tend not to.

I actually agree with Land Shark and GuvWorld that at this point, the numbers cease to matter. Where I think we all agree is that a country with an electoral system that leaves its citizens in doubt as to whether the man who is president is the people's choice is not a true democracy. You do not doubt that Bush lost. I doubt whether he won. The fact that there is room for doubt is the issue. And even as a Brit that matters to me. It matters to the world.

(I'll crawl back into my hidey hole again now.)
