So let me get this straight...Obama's been winning all day up until the polls close
   
Then suddenly the race switches and it becomes "too close to call." Just like certain other major elections of recent years.

Hmmm. Call me Mr. Cynical...but something stinks.

When did exit polls become so unreliable? The science has been pretty well understood for a while.






here's a question for your lizards.. when were they EVER reliable??

nothing counts but the actual vote - do you people get that yet?

2. 81% voted on DRE machines
 We have no idea what really happened in this election.

8. NH doesn't use DREs
I love it when one of them makes a fellow DUmmy look like a complete retard.   :loser:

19. Polls on black candidates running against whites are often wrong

It happened to Wilder, Gant, Ford and it will happen to Obama. I bet black voters will also BS pollsters and say Obama but vote for Hillary because the long positive relationship with the Clintons and betting Obama is a painful losing proposition in the general election.





so.. its the black voters fault!

Pedro Picasso has a problem, a particular problem which Sigmund Freud described in detail, but that was 1,750 or so pages ago, and I forget the name of it.

Anyway, it's where one forms an idea how things "should" be, and then when things turn out differently, one thinks the whole world conspired to screw it up for oneself.

Pedro Picasso has got to learn to stop thinking about the way things "should" be, and instead think about the way things actually are, and accept, adapt, adjust, and move on.

The guy's half a century old; it's long past time for him to grow up.

well now they are arguing about which states have DREs and which dont.

im betting a new chorus of 'count them by hand even if it takes 8 months' will be the next song on the old jukebox..

Ford lost because 52% of the voting public were smart enough to tell a dishonest crook when they saw one.

Diebold machine redux. Seriously, do they ever just figure that we don't always get our way?  :whatever:

No, they don't.

The primitives are incapable of thinking that far.

What's worse news for the primitives is that if one gets his own way 10% of the time, he's doing good.

That's the way life is.

And reasonable people understand this, but alas, that is the key word there isn't it? REASONABLE.

At some point,either by collective resignation or by directive from a higher power,they will expunge this event from their beings and go back to a tunnel vision belief that President Bush "stole" Ohio.

They will soon begin rebuilding the walls of the little compartments in their minds that keep contradictory thoughts from ever coming in contact with each other.

I dunno if that's the term, but it's pretty accurate in describing Pedro Picasso.
