What went wrong in Ohio? Rhymes with Hackwell.

Peter, election fraud doesn't rhyme with Hackwell (and yes, I do get it). And there is nary a mention of a penis in your comment at all.

And you thought no one paid attention!

Dinsdale, thanks for the post. There'd been requests in Meta for some more election posts. I'm sure the whiners are limbering up their fingers as I type.

It does bother me that the election issues have gotten pretty well zero airtime in the news. I'm not demanding a recount but I am demanding that the system's problems be addressed and fixed. And that is, apparently, too much to ask for. (That and adequate armor plating for the vehicles the soldiers are driving around in Iraq in).

Just for the sake of completing the cycle.

Ha, thank you fenriq. Nice always to speak with you. My penis hits a thousand! I do appreciate the recognition, and (since you're a friend) ... Penis.

I've been pleasantly surprised how much coverage this has been getting on Ohio Public Radio. Seems like recently they've had a story almost every day air on my local NPR station.

Ha. Certainly you can find the humor in you calling others whiners.

Pot kettle black was invented for you.

Interesting...
When I tried to post this information days after the election it was removed by Matt for being a "sore loser" or some such nonsense.

I've found that the best source for well-written, not-sensationalistic-but-not-ignoring-what's-going-on news is Keith Olbermann's blog; he seems to be the one person in the national mainstream media who has decided to make this story his personal beat.
