85. OTOH, the explanation is simple:
It was another one of those MAN IN THE MIDDLE ATTACKS!

Democratic operatives wanting to discredit lever voting machines redirected Faun's browser to a mirror site in Albany, NY -- the home base of the anti-lever conspiracy.

The plan was to show a very narrow margin of victory that could have been reversed by shaving the gears of only a single lever machine, throwing the whole US Senate into chaos (and by extension, the House) by making it appear as if the Dems only had 59 votes instead of 60, and therefore would not be able to pass even a single bill without massive, nearly unanimous, Republican support -- not even a corporate DLC Health Care Scam!

But the plan failed when the scanner jockeys from LHS fixed it so the election wasn't even close! They don't need no stinkin' Internets to rig elections. They got PAPER BALLOTS counted by computers.

Can't wait to see what happens in the mid-term elections this year! Maybe we'll see some more of these DIEBOLD LEVER MACHINES in COL-I-FORN-IA!
