Kerry People Making Noises About Provisional Ballots–Why?


Most networks besides CNN have called Ohio, and therefore probably the presidency, for, yes, that guy. The margin is 2.1% or so for him. Kerry people are saying the Ohio margin MIGHT shrink to 50,000 votes with all the precincts reporting, meaning that the 200,000 provisional ballots should be counted.

I’m losing my taste for this stuff, myself. Somehow the whole day’s work seems off the point. I don’t know what caused the difference between exit polls and the real votes, but maybe it’s time to think about what those of us in the reality-based community , or slightly less than half of America, are going to do tomorrow, in January, and in the years ahead.
