36. it may be blue "overall," but
every indication was that it was competitive in 2004. If you're really convinced that Kerry won by double digits, you're sort of on your own. Where do you think those votes were?

Many people thought that Mondale was in trouble after the memorial service, so it didn't come as a big shock when he lost. (The two late polls disagreed about who was ahead.) I don't think HAVA had some magical capacity to alter MN elections! It's logically possible that the scanners were hacked, or something, but it would be helpful to have some supporting evidence. Do you suppose that the count was wrong in every precinct? that certain counties were attacked? what? If I thought that a bunch of Minnesota votes had been stolen in those years, I wouldn't be sitting around wishing for someone else to "investigate."

As for Georgia, with their voting system, who knows? But even if we assume that the Georgia elections were rigged in 2002, that doesn't get us very far.
