The Silence of the Kool Aid

Hectic day today. CLE in the morning; bailing another team out on their 2-weeks-behind-schedule work in the afternoon; and this pathetic excuse for a lunch break crammed in the middle.

I just leave y'all with this to ruminate on (emphasis mine):

Teresa Heinz Kerry is openly skeptical about results from November's election, the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER reports, particularly in sections of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes.

"Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz Kerry said. She identified both as "hard-right" Republicans.

She argued that it is "very easy to hack into the mother machines." Heinz Kerry did not offer any specific evidence that votes on the machines were altered. "We in the United States are not a banana republic," added Heinz Kerry during a fundraiser in Seattle.

"I fear for '06," she said.

This actually segues nicely into an upcoming KAR: A Touch of Gravitas post on the art of argumentation. Stay tuned.
