Diebold dies

John Diebold reportedly died the other day, and I was going to joke that doctors won’t confirm his death until they check the paper trail on the EKG… but as it turns out, he had nothing to do with vote fixing counting machine manufacturer Diebold, Inc. Too bad. Would’ve been a good joke.

So… um… rest in peace, John.

    Hopefully he didn’t die in King County or NYC. That way he stands a chance at being buried with all of his body parts intact.

  2. 2


    Hey, Goldy, joking about the late Mr. Diebold is perfectly tasteless. But I’m glad we have common ground in finding flaws in Diebold election technology. After all, it is Diebold software and a Diebold business unit that help process King County’s mail-in ballots and which helped cause hundreds of ballots to be misaccounted for and illegally counted last year. I’m glad you agree with me that Diebold helped put the wrong person in our Governor’s chair.

    I think if the Republicans wanted to maximize their chances of getting people elected, they’d concentrate on the other counties in Washington. King County et. al. is overwhelmingly Democrat and very likely to stay that way.

    The Democrats, on the other hand, should do whatever it takes to maintain their power in KC and the surrounding area before branching very far beyond the base. I think the Dems are strong in King, Pierce, Thurston and possibly Snohomish, and that’s where the votes are. It will be a particularly difficult task for the Republicans to win in those counties.

    2006 promises to be an interesting year in Washington politics.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Here’s little slightly politically incorrect yuck. Some of you may enjoy it….but tightass KLOWNS like Clueless will be outraged at the word “Retarded” and miss the whole fucking joke!
    After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent
    their holiday away from school. One child wrote the following:

    We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they don’t know who they are anymore.
    They go to a building called a wrecked center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now, and do exercises there, but they don’t do them very well. There is a swimming pool too, but in it, they all jump up and down with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out!
    They go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing every night ——early birds. Some of the people can’t get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center and call it pot luck.
    My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his
    retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out so they can visit their grandchildren.

    Somehow the words LEFTIST PINHEAD, KLOWN and Retarded all seem sooooooooooooooo HARMONIOUS!

    Money = Welfare checks
    Luxury SUV = ’72 Ford pick up with a gun rack and Bush stickers.
    Big house = Double-wide trailer, with it’s wheels.
    10 = wife/sister @ 420 pounds, two teeth in her head and 12 dirty kids between them.

    So Rakeface goes off the deep end. Calling me “chilling” and “morally repugnant” for even asking such a question. Then I asked him if wiretapping is so bad, why he supports McDermott after his little wiretapping scandal. He stepped on the rake handle and it whirled up and hit him right in the face. WHACK! ! ! It was hilarious. I couldn’t have scripted it better. Shit, you’d think he was in on it.

    At first, it just left a rake handle shaped bruise on his face, but after reading some of his stuff lately, I think it gave him a concussion.

    You see, Mark The Yellowdick is soooooo stupid, he didn’t pick upon the hyperbole wording that Rush Limbaugh uses when describing the “left.” “Chilling” and “Morally repugnant” are two of Rush’s favorite descriptions when he wants to go over the top.

    See, he was so busy taking the bait, he didn’t realize I was paraphrasing Rush. What a moron!!

    The joke is that Mark has been running with the hook lodged in his esophagus like a trophy sized marlin. He’s been running with that hook for several days now and I’ve just been letting him run some fishing line out. He really believed that I was stepping on the “rake” all the while he kept ranting on and on about it.

    Baaaaaa haaaaa haaaaaa!

    Now, it’s time to snap Mark into reality and reel him in, gaff him, bash him over the head with my “hill” billy club, and take him to the taxidermist.

    The bonus joke for those of us observing is he thinks Jim McDermott wiretapped, or recorded those SOB’s in congress without realizing it was a private citizen who intercepted the cell phone conversation.

    What a fucking DUMB ASS.

    Mark, seriously man, thank you. 2005 started off ugly for me seeing Bush sworn into office again. It could NOT have ended better than with your moronic rants. It’s dumb asses like you that let me know that 2006 will be shitty year for neo-convicts. I can’t wait.

    No need to correct that statement of fact. Beyond making males ga-ga, vaginas do indeed make us men. With a little help from the uterus and fallopian tubes, and 23 chromosomes from a source traditionally provided by men.

    It is fucking outrageous what FUWA lets mothers get away with. My $1000 child support check was spent on meth in about 3 days while my daughter went without food.

    And don’t give me that “deadbeat dad” shit. I spent well over half a million on vaginamoney and child support and it was all fucking wasted. Instead, let’s talk about deadbeat mothers. The ones who don’t give a fuck about their kids. Who take an 18 year vacation. Who spend the money on themselves instead of the kids. Who are too fucking stupid and lazy and self absorbed to help them with school work or activities or anything else.

    Stefan @ 31

    “Prof. DJ – I assure you I make nothing up.”

    You mean…umm…nothing except your statement @ 2: “I’m glad you [Goldy] agree with me that Diebold helped put the wrong person in our Governor’s chair.

    “If you’re not uncomfortable with facts that might challenge your beliefs, I hope you’ll join me at the county Archives one afternoon and we can look at ballot envelopes together. If you can refute the information that I’m presenting with real facts and not just expletives and ad hominem attacks, I’ll be more than happy to give due weight to your contributions.”

    Well, I was “attacking” the above comment, but as long as you brought it up….

    I don’t actually visit Sound Politics very often, so I do not keep up on the errors you claim to find. But, from what I have seen, your methods are not sufficient to demonstrate that the wrong person is in the governor’s office. Specifically, your finding errors only demonstrates that ever closer scrutiny of a large election results in…finding more errors. And, it demonstrates that the overall error rate is a tiny bit higher than previously thought. That is surprising to nobody.

    In order to demonstrate your “wrong person” hypothesis, you would have to begin by going over each county with the same degree of scrutiny that you have given to King County, and do so across all precincts of all counties. Then, you could try to do some type of “proportional reduction” to probabilistically determine the winner of the election. Of course, you would want to demonstrate the uncertainty of your findings as well, but that is simple to do.

    My guess is that if you did this, you would find that the errors, in essence, fall about half to Gregoire and half for Rossi (i.e. they would pretty much follow the population voting proportions). All evidence from the election contest (flawed though its collection was) supports my hunch.

    This is, essentially, what happened in the election contest. The GOP thought they would offer some 800 illegal votes (mostly from disenfranchised felons), primarily from King County as evidence that the wrong person was the Governor. The Democrats, however, did the same thing, but in pro-GOP precincts and found nearly as many felons. During the trial, the expert witness (Mark Handcock) showed that, using the GOP-proposed “proportional reduction” methods, that there was only a 1 in 10,000 chance that Rossi won based on the distribution of “corrected” election vote totals.

    So, the bottom line is that I have no reason to attempt to refute any individual errors you are uncovering—they are hardly surprising in a county that cast some 900,000 votes, given your closer scrutiny. But, my impression is that you are searching for errors in KC only. If so, your methods are not sufficient to demonstrate that the wrong person is in the Governor’s office.

    RJC Thanks
    Senator Santorum for Iran Resolution

    Tuesday, December 20, 2005
    Washington, DC — (RJC) thanks U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, for introducing a bipartisan resolution, S. Res. 337, which condemned the recent disparaging and destructive statements made toward Israel and all Jewish people by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The resolution passed by unanimous consent on Friday with 22 cosponsors and active RJC support.

    Iran’s president recently announced that Israel should be “wiped off the map” and that the Holocaust was a “myth.” The Senate resolution demanded an apology for these outrageous statements.

    “The RJC thanks Senator Santorum for his leadership in denouncing the offensive statements made by President Ahmadinejad, and for calling attention to Iran’s support for terrorist organizations and its nuclear ambitions,” said RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks.

    “These ridiculous statements,” Senator Santorum said, “are just another piece of evidence that the Government of Iran harbors deep hatred for the United States, Israel and all Jewish people.”

    Sen. Santorum added, “The current Government of Iran is among the most dangerous government in the world. We must continue to call attention to Iran’s reckless and provocative behavior so that the international community can succeed in halting Iran’s nuclear ambitions.”

    The RJC also thanks Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK) for sponsoring a companion House Resolution, H. Res. 601, which has almost 70 cosponsors.

    The RJC thanks Senator Santorum for his unwavering friendship to the Jewish community. Earlier this year the Senator introduced S. 333, the Iran Freedom and Support Act of 2005, which would help limit Iran’s access to revenue and foreign investment. The RJC strongly supports S. 333 and urges the Senate to pass it.

    65% of Palestinians Support Al-Qaeda Attacks in the US and Europe:

    Religious War against “Infidels” inherent to PA religious ideology
    By Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook

    A poll published this week and reported in Palestinian newspapers found that 65% of Palestinians “support Al-Qaeda actions in the USA and Europe.” Religiously-motivated Al-Qaeda attacks against those referred to as “Infidels” have killed thousands of Americans and Europeans. Why would the Palestinian population so overwhelmingly support the murder of Christians?

    For years, the Palestinian Authority religious leadership has been presenting its war against Israel’s existence as merely one part of its global Islamic war being fought against the Christian-Jewish West. Just last month, a PA TV religious leader, during a televised sermon, included this prayer for the killing of all Infidels:

    “Destroy the Infidels and the Polytheists! Your [i.e. Allah’s] enemies are the enemies of the religion…! Count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”

    Ex-CIA Big: Bill Clinton Authorized Extralegal Interrogations

    The man who ran the Central Intelligence Agency’s Bin Laden desk during the 1990s is accusing President Clinton of giving the CIA carte blanche to circumvent U.S. law and interrogate terrorist suspects in any way the agency saw fit – a directive that led to the establishment of secret CIA prisons on foreign soil.

    “We asked the president what we should do with the people we capture,” recalled Michael Scheuer, who headed up the agency’s Bin Laden unit from 1996 to 1999, in an interview Wednesday with the German newsmagazine Die Zeit.

    Scheuer said Clinton replied: “That’s up to you.”

    According to an Agence France Press summary of the Die Zeit interview, Scheuer explained that the Clinton administration “had been looking in the mid-1990s for a way to combat the terrorist threat and circumvent the cumbersome US legal system.”

    It is not illegal to look into ways to circumvent the law. It is illegal to break the law.
