"Over this next week or so...

"we will be hearing of glitches and major problems that haven't surfaced as yet. Still, overall, this may have been the cleanest election in many years. Most of the tricks are known which makes it more difficult.

"The problems in Tennessee may just be a result of pulpit pounding across the state. Religion has had a horrendous affect on elections."

To which I replied:

"What happened in Tennessee MAY have been the function of any number of things. That list is seemingly inexhaustible.

"But if the search for answers is based on a premise (that the Republicans swept 4-5X their expected number of seats because they actually got the votes needed to do so), a premise that is untestable and unverifiable (and may, in fact, be wrong), then it's all a fool's game.

"The presence and persistence of the Rethug defense for indefensible voting systems is at the heart of what's happening in my home state now, I DO BELIEVE. And that's based on a decade of experience and long looks in the shifty eyes of the election thieves posing as reich-wing, holy-anointed patriots here (those with balls, and without)."
