Either Way, it’s the Machine

posted by on May 6 at 21:24 PM

As for Gary’s late reporting, Kos nails it:

The question is whether this was legit. The way the vote is being released makes this stink to high hell.

If this was legit, that’s some serious machine action at work. If it’s not legit, that’s some serious machine action at work.

I doubt very much that the vote was not legit, but Machines get out the vote one way or the other.

Yeah, how could a city that is more than 80% African-American population go so strongly for Obama? It's unprecedented! Shenanigans! I call shenanigans!

"80% African-American in population". Too many beers.

Someone in the comments on Kos mentions that Lake County is on Central Time, so polls closed an hour later than the rest of the state, which would explain the later results. Interesting situation.

It's amusing how the Hils side can't admit when they lost.

See that little jog in this time zone map right where Lake County is? Maybe the polls really did close an hour later there.
