Thread Name: BS: Help! The computer ate OH & FL votes!
Subject: RE: BS: Help! The computer ate OH & FL votes!
beardedbruce doesn't know what he is talking about. "Just a few districts?" In PA, MD, etc, roughly the same number of districts went for Kerry as for Bush. The Kerry districts happen to be closer together (in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, for example). But a district serves a given number of voters, at least in PA. So you would have to jimmy an awful lot of districts to get the results bb is suggesting--the same number that Bush would have to jimmy, in fact.
BB is acting as though Philadelphia used one voting machine or counted as one district or something. Preposterous! And he's spouting this nonsense on several different threads, too.
