I completely missed this.

"Diebold Election Systems Inc. expressed alarm and state election officials contacted the FBI yesterday after a former legislator received an anonymous package containing what appears to be the computer code that ran Maryland's polls in 2004."

Oh, that's interesting.

It gets better.

"Morrill said two of three disks were never used and that the third was version 4.3.15c, which was used in Maryland during the 2004 primary."

...which is complete BULLSHIT. If the thieves got, for example, version 2.1.1, then they have perhaps 95% of the source code that appears in version 2.1.2. Saying a specific version of compromised code was never used in an election is another way of saying "we pray to god that the version bump fixed every vunlerability that existed in the version we submitted last week."

Assurance that every citizen's vote is counted is effectly gone. What? You think it's beyond the pale to imagine a discussion in a public park involving the question "so how do you want to steal an election" and Karl Rove's lips? Do you have any doubt whatsoever that this administration would press that button if the opportunity presented itself and their power was in jeopardy?

Bush has suspended habeus corpus which means the difference between being in prison or not is the tolerating nature of the president.

Two nuclear powers emerged on his watch. A war that's completely out of control that we can't sustain and we can't extract ourselves from.

No WMD. Myers. Plamegate. Foley. Haliburton. Abu Ghraib. Abramoff. Rove. Libby. Ney. Shit, I'm just rattling off the ones that come to mind.

To everyone who reads this neurosis of a blog, please access it (and update your bookmarks) by going to, which is my domain. The short story is that blogger has been obstinant about letting me log into my account. Synching the new blogger beta with the old system seems to have quashed the login. But it lets me in sometimes. *shrug

Some new pics up.
