Ah, well, this goes hand in hand with Democratic ballot stuffing, which
would imply not that Bush won dishonestly, but that he won despite the
systemic dishonesty of Democrats.

I also saw a TV interview of the guy who invented the voting machines
used in Florida. He said the most frequent cause of dimpled chads was
the punching of multiple ballots at the same time, stacked on top of
each other, that the machines can punch up to 5 ballots at the same
time.... no wonder there were so many Democratic dimpled chads.
