...If only someone with Kennedy's stature would outline this need.
If only. Whatever his aim, RFK Jr. does not appear intent on fixing the problem. He's more content to take us through a hit parade of the most popular, and the most dismissible, theories purporting to show that John Kerry won Ohio, theories that have been swirling about the blogosphere ever since the race was called. I scoured his Rolling Stone article for some novel story or statistic or theory that would prove, finally, that George W. Bush was not the true victor. But nothing here is new. If you've spent time on Democratic Underground or have read Mark Crispin Miller's "Fooled Again," you're already familiar with everything Kennedy has to say.
If you do read Kennedy's article, be prepared to machete your way through numerous errors of interpretation and his deliberate omission of key bits of data...Such techniques are evident throughout Kennedy's article. He presents a barrage of seemingly important, apparently damning data to show that Kerry won the race. It's only when you dig into his claims that you see what thin ice he's on.
oops--meant to click "this is an excerpt"--click link above to read.
>>But to prove Blackwell stole the state for Bush, Kennedy's got to do more than show instances of Blackwell's mischief. He's got to outline where Blackwell's actions could possibly have added up to enough votes to put the wrong man in office. In that, he fails.
Pretty pitiful that fellow libs are debunking RFKjr.
Be still my heart.
Once Teddy goes to that "Big Highball Glass in the Sky", I doubt the masses will rally around what is left of this pathetic, criminal family.
Such techniques are evident throughout the Kennedy families lives. All of them.
Anything that signed by anybody named "Kennedy" is highly suspect at best.
I've read that sweet Caroline is on the up-an-up. Despite being a lib. Jackie-O raised her right.
>>around what is left of this pathetic, criminal family.
Howie Carr refers to them, and rightly so, as The Kennedy
Yea, but that was just being a lib. She is not a criminal or substance abuser like the rest.
True, she is a good solid traditional family mother.
I guess I have to give her that....I hate to do it tho
C'mon! Have a heart for a lib!
Can't do it...8^)
Anyone want to post the entire article? Can't get in unless you register, and I don't want to.

Oh, good. thanks...actually in my case I was able to see the whole article without registering--I just had to sit through a Salon ad of some kind.
It's fairly hilarious that an ultra-left publication like Salon.com finds this embarrassing enough to debunk.
