This is why there’s a trial lawyer on the ticket

Kerry had to have seen this coming.

It’s "all down to Ohio", amid allegations of vote suppression, mistmatched numbers, and electronic tinkering. My favorite assertion is that in states that don’t use electronic voting, the exit polls
match the actual numbers, but in states that do, Bush has +5% in the numbers. I haven’t looked at them yet, but I must admit that that would be suspicious.

Either way, I’m simply confused. How can it even be this close? How is it even possible that there are two sides and they’re so evenly matched? Why do the election results look suspiciously like we just flipped a few hundred million quarters?

(Update: Salon doesn’t think so.)
