19. here's something to think about
Don't you suppose that from my point of view, your two posts seem fairly smug and snide? And how much snarkier might you be if you had to put up with insinuations like these -- which, you must be aware, are not original to you? Seriously. But if these questions have been nagging at you, I hope my responses are helpful.

I can't prove fraud in FL-13 in 2006, but there's a very solid case that Jennings should have won -- just like there's a solid case that Gore should have won Florida in 2000. I don't think the methods have an inherent reactionary bias, or whatever. But when Miller, in the first few paragraphs of his op-ed, treats the retrospective poll results as if they are gospel (even though they contradict each other), and then admits later that they should be expected to change, well, it's weak. Someone might as well say so. I respect people who work harder at making sense. For instance, John Gideon busted his butt to be well informed, and he backed up his claims -- or retracted them on the rare occasions that he got something wrong. I guess he wasn't an A-list media star, but I daresay he was pretty damn effective. John Gideon a very high standard, but there are plenty of people with the same commitment to getting stuff right. Very cool.
