Will This Settle It?

I love a good conspiracy theory, but the kvetching that President Bush stole this election is just a bunch of sore losers who can’t deal with defeat:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Exit polls overstated John Kerry’s share of the vote on November 2, both nationally and in many states, because more Kerry supporters participated in the survey than Bush voters, according to an internal review of the exit-polling process released Wednesday.

The report said it is difficult to pinpoint precisely why, in general, Kerry voters were more likely to participate in the exit poll than were Bush voters. “There were certainly motivational factors that are impossible to quantify,” the report said.

Well, that ambiguity in the last statement ought to be enough to fuel another four years’ worth of Greg Palast columns.
