WHY DOES THE LEFT HATE THE VOTE?:

Grand theft Mexico: The election race south of the US border is officially too close to call. Now, where have we heard that before (Greg Palast, July 3, 2006, The Guardian)

As in Florida in 2000, and as in Ohio in 2004, the exit polls show the voters voted for the progressive candidate. The race is "officially" too close to call. But they will call it - after they steal it.

Reuters reports that, as of 8pm eastern time, as voting concluded in Mexico, exit polls showed Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the "leftwing" party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) leading in exit polls over Felipe Calderón of the ruling conservative National Action party (PAN).

We've said again and again: exit polls tell us how voters say they voted, but the voters can't tell pollsters whether their vote will be counted.


Normally, when you say something again and again and it keeps turning out to be spectacularly wrong you re-examine your assumptions.

We'll see this again in November: exit polls conducted by Democratic-paid, Democratic-leaning, Democratic-biased pollsters using dubious methodologies, none of which will be examined in time, to claim that elections have been stolen after an honest count of the only exit polls that matter -- the ballots.

I keep telling my fellow right-wing conspirators, "don't forget to rig the exit poll results too," but do they listen? Nooooo! I mean, which is easier paying off a couple of poll-takers or rigging an entire nation's election count. Now the leftist spokesmen for the people are on to us. I don't know how we zionist masters of the New World order continue to run the world, staffed by such incompetents. Oh, well. We'll get it right for U.S. congressional mid-terms, although we may need to do to Ned Lamont what we did to Paul Wellstone and Ron Brown.
