26. No. It isn't pleasant at all.
Nor is it pleasant to suffer activists who have a sort of trademark mantra.

It doesn't really matter if it's Exit Poll True Believers, Black Box Antics and Road Show, or HCPB Jihadists. To them all, other views are background noise to be masked as it is not the party line and dilutes the value of the name-brand.

There is a bit of difference between maintaining brand loyalty...running a business...and advocating for transparent elections whatever that takes in a given jurisdiction. Bo/NYVV's anti-lever position is not inconsistent with the DoJ effort to bulldoze NY. There's a comment upthread suggesting the approach was best given the jurisdictional situation. Pardon me, but there were and are lever machines enjoying fairly wide support in that state. And then there's Bo & Co. selling Optical Scans with the aid of LHS execs.

That's a bit weird.

Above, someone has the nerve to suggest the TRO Liberty filed has to do with the Optical Scan Evangelism. Really? How about Doug Kellner?.

There are those so bent on stopping DRE's that they ignore the peril of OpScan, and run rough-shod over Hand Counts and, in this case, levers.

That's the cottage to which I refer. I see this one has a chimney.
