among the truly incredible number of bizarre reports of the realities about the US election is the following from Cuyahoga County in Ohio:

http://pages.ivillage.com/americans4america/id20.html

it is clearly based on American Mathematics - the total number of votes is almost 100,000 above the total of a 100% election turnout.

4 more years ? why would Bush and his cronies bother to go through this farce a third time - Hitler didn't.

(come on, Donald - you are hired to counter anything of this sort. Let's hear the argument of why arithmetic does not apply in America).

Can 50 million people be this dumb ? Well, 30 million to you. But they are still this dumb.

so over 100% voting figures are OK - just checking.

your version of mathematics must play havoc with structural calculations.

well no one is sure how the votes were split or even if it will be possible to discern the 'extra' votes from the 'real' votes...

this is the great failure of electronic voting... i don't know why they are pusing for it so much... i think the system in NYS is probably the best, its a mechanical machine, where you pull levers next to names...no punching cards, no hanging chads, no lost or added votes....just go in, pull a couple levers, pull one big lever to make it count and you are done... the system has very rarely ever had a problem... yet they are going to make NYS switch to electronic by 2006...

I can think of one strong reason for certain powers to push hard for unverifiable electronic voting.

isn't the producer of the machines also a big ATM manufacturer?

those seem to work pretty well, what happened?

Donald, that is outrageous.

Just because the President cheated in one election is no reason to pretend that he stole another one.

Aren't criminals given the chance to reform in America - are they forever branded with the stigma of one little mistake made years ago ?

sure, Donald, sure - anyone who disagrees with you must be mentally retarded.

lucky that you have real high-powered brains on your side, like your new Attorney General, the Hispanic in the highest position of influence ever, Enron Gonzales.

the Great Gonzo redefines the term "American professionalism".
