    Still no facts to back up your assertion that the Princeton study is “Nonsense”, huh?

    Didn’t think so.

    I can see why you’ve taken to posting inane drivel like today’s entry – it requires no thinking, ino nsight and, most importantly – NO FACTS!

    Your lack of insight would be amusing if only it weren’t so commonplace amongst you self-congratulatory right-wing bloggers.

    Ouch. I actually thought this post was quite insightful.

    WHAD is the home of the most whinny conversations I hear every day.

    And here are the facts for you:

    Monday morning they whined about how there is too much religion in politics and how wood fire boilers are polluting the air.

    Tuesday morning they whined about the Gay Marriage Amendment.

    Wednesday they whined about how America’s version of democracy sucks and the dangers of electronic voting.

    And today they whined about how evil nuclear power is and how the United States is a criminal empire.

    Lastly, I see you like to indulge in the wonderful straw man game where you tell me what I said (in this case “that the Princeton study was nonsense”) and badger me to defend it.

    As I stated in my last response to your comments on the electronic voting post, I NEVER said anything about the Princeton study. I was not even aware of its existence.

    I said that the conspiracy theory that Republicans are stealing elections is nonsense. The Princeton study showed that an older version of the Diebold machine used in some districts COULD be hacked. It did NOT show that they were hacked.

    OK, first and foremost, I will retract my earlier statement where I accused you of calling the Princeton study “nonsense”. After a re-read, I see that you actually DID agree with the Princeton study (your double-negative of “I Don’t Disagree” is what I misread), so therefore, an apology on my part is in order.

    That being said, (and from my point of view, closed), I find your lackadaisical attitude toward a potential threat to the greatest gift bestowed upon us by Almighty God – the right to vote – alarming. What a great leap of faith we take every November when we cast our ballots, knowing they will be accurately counted and tallied. For people to not stand up and defend the integrity of that right is, in my opinion, unfathomable as an American. That’s just one of the difference between you and I. (And for the record, there WERE serious vote-counting abnormalities in the 2004 election)

    And for the record, your use of the words “whining” and “ranting” to describe any and all opinions that you don’t want to believe is, quite simply, the mark of a partisan hack. But by all means – keep preaching to your tiny choir. I’m sure they’re all bleating their “Mega Dittos” right now as we speak.

    So with that, let me say that it’s been interesting conversing with you. You’ve done nothing to change my perception that the majority of Republicans are nothing but an echo-chamber for the right-wing media on AM radio and Fox News. And for the record, I have no intention to come back here to exchange barbs with you. Perhaps if you posted an insightful comment, or *gasp!* opened a civilized debate, I might chime in with a comment or two. But until then….the floor is yours to insult me, debase me and demonize me in accordance with the Republican Code of Conduct.

    PS. Please accept my sincere apology for misreading your original statement and challenging you on a supposition that you clearly did not make.

    Apology accepted.

    And I definitely want accountability in our elections.

    In general, I believe that most people on each side of the political center want the exact same things…the real difference is in the approaches each side wants to take to get there.
