a hint of a gimmer of a smidgen of hope

Check this out:


This is the official letter from the House Judiciary Committee to Ohio's Secretary of State Blackwell. The letter is independent of the GAO's investigation into voting "irregularities", and rakes Blackwell over the coals, demanding answers to some pretty serious questions.

This is really wonderful timing too. Tomorrow or Monday, The Alliance for Democracy will file a lawsuit challenging Ohio's election results, claiming they have sufficient evidence of fraud and other irregularities to prove that Kerry actually won Ohio.

I said many times that I thought it was likely Kerry would actually win the election but that Bush would win the reported election results. Since election day I have believed that is what actually happened. Now it appears there is a chance that may be shown to be true.

If the Ohio results are reversed, it won't matter that Kerry "conceded" the election. Bush will be gone. I'm not getting my hopes up yet, but oh gods I would dance a merry jig were that to happen.

First and foremost, I have to say that I love the fact that the term "computer GLITCH" has become a reasonable, factual, technical term that is acceptable for federal legal documents and judicial items. he he ;)

Second, there seems to be a big focus on "How are you not going to let this happen in the future?" I'm betting that there won't be any ousting of bush, but somebody will get fired and the next election will get even more scrutiny... which won't matter, because the idiot doesn't have the option of running again anyway.

The damage is done, is what I'm saying.

I agree, as far as this document goes. It's not the job of this committee to overturn the election. But any information they uncover will make it that much easier for others' lawsuits to proceed.

Yeah, we're 99% likely stuck with W, but it's still fun to think about him being told it was a fake out. I just can't imagine his statement to the news about it, but I'm sure it would be a wonderful thing.
