Here's a brief story from KXAN.com about the protesters who showed up at the Capitol yesterday (emphasis mine):
Although for most people it's considered a done deal, some aren't ready to let go of this year's presidential election.You'd be surprised at how many of these moonbats put more store by the exit polls than by the actual vote tallies. What the fuck is that all about?
About 100 people rallied on the steps of the capitol yesterday to protest the election. They called on state and federal lawmakers to investigate so-called rampant voter fraud. They also want a nationwide, citizen-supervised manual recount of the vote.
"Besides suppression of the vote and intimidating voters, they had all sorts of wrong things happening with the electronic voting system with the OPSCAN technology in Florida," David Raybuck, election protestor, said, "there were a lot of places where the voter turnout, the exit polls didn't really match with the final turnout."
Well, in the late morning hours on Election Day, Big Media was reporting that the exit polling data was looking good for Kerry. I remember that very well because it was depressing the hell out of me. But that's also what these idiots are remembering ---and their feeble little minds are stuck in that gear. "But...but...CNN said that Kerry was doing good! Waaahhhhh!!!"
Remember, ladies: governments hold elections, not media-funded polling companies. You may not understand how certain elections can end up in a near-tie, but you can at least concede that the vote totals in an open society like ours are somewhat more likely to reflect the choice of the electorate than informal, non-binding questionnaires put to people leaving a voting station.
