    Wow. Does anyone know if Ted lives alone? Is someone there who can, y’know, kind of keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn’t hurt himself? On accounta he’s gone from wacky guy with wacky ideas to full-on delusional nutjob.

    Well, the SCotUS 2000 one is a bit strange, but the others are all things that really happened, and which involved people deliberately trying to alter the results of elections by underserving or ignoring their opponents. You may not agree that they succeeded in changing the outcome of the election — for example, you might believe that Bush would have won in 2000 regardless of meddling by Kathleen Harris — but there is no question that the attempts were made.


    (In fact, if I were a Clinton loyalist who thought her victory was inevitable, I would be particularly annoyed at Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her fellow travelers, because if Clinton’s win was inevitable, all the shenanigans did nothing to help but instead simply gave everyone an excuse to consider Clinton’s win invalid. She should have been booted from the party for sheer incompetence, but instead Clinton pulled her into the campaign, endorsed her against her primary challenger, and gave her a bunch of money. As someone who was only willing to vote for the Democrats if they cut away from the Clinton-led right-of-center faction, that cemented my low opinion of the party absolutely.)

    Clinton always helps out friends who help them out. Ill bet Schultz and Kennedy get Cabinet jobs when shes elected.

    I would agree with you. The 2000 election was a Karl Rove special, and only nine votes counted for Florida. Apart from that, he’s being ridiculous.

    Look, people, you’re conflating several dissimilar things here, apples and watermelons is probably minimizing the disparity. States run the elections. Parties run their own internal process. How parties act is utterly separate from the state election process – they just borrow the machines. Now, states do indeed swap things up by gerrymandering and suppressing vote turnout. This isn’t nice or just, but it’s how it has been for every election since the early 1800’s. And changing THAT process to require a federal standard would mean a change in the constitution. Which is desirable, but pretty unlikely. That’s how it’s always been, for every living American, and it’s the way our elections work. Calling that rigged means every election since Washington has been “rigged”. Which is preposterous on the face of it.

    Maybe it is a problem, but the majority of the problems seem to come from Republicans. Let’s ban them.

    The election IS rigged – a boorish loudmouthed bigot has been going around campaigning for Donald Trump.

    “It’s not who votes that counts, but who counts the votes”. And in those cases where a machine is used for voting or tabulating, who controls those votes is whoever controls those machines. For the secret machinations whereby the vote is determined, I say that the appropriate policy is “guilty until proven innocent”.


    Vote on paper, count by hand. It’s the only way to be sure. (And no, punched-card ballots don’t count as paper).

    Republicons will cancel your ballot if you happen to have the same name as someone in jail.

    What he is pointing out is real. The only delusion resides in those of us who ignore it.

    Those may be true, but Trump knows he will lose and wants to change things so even a Nazi like him would win.He is being cynical an manipulative here.

    Mr Trump is blowing hot air — hardly out of character. He knows he can’t win, he’s never wanted the job, it’s all just about more spotlight for him. But does anyone doubt for a minute that if it were a close race the democratic-party machinery would rig the election? It’s not like they’ve got any reputation for integrity, and if they had, they’d have lost it in the DNC – Clinton campaign collusion scandal this past summer. Some voting machines are so vulnerable that a bright six-year-old could hack them.

    A bright six-year-old is smart enough to stay away from them.
