    Hi all. Please excuse the vanity. But we are having a mock election at school today, run by a liberal history teacher, and when I joked about prnting up extra ballots stamped with the words "APPROVED BY ACORN" he violently assaulted me with "In 2004 the head of Diebold (voting machines) said 'We can win Ohio for Bush'." I dismissed it, saying "well that does not make right what ACORN is doing now. But, he continued on his point. Of course, this is the same fellow, when I passed him in the hallway the morning after the vice-presidential debate and...

    I heard a nice lady call Rush Limbaugh today to complain about the disdain in which he holds liberals. She felt that she was a nice person and didnít appreciate some of the terms he was using. She felt that conservatives had gone after President Clinton just as viciously as some liberals attack President Bush. I wonít go into the exchange that went on except to say that, as usual, Rush pointed out the differences very adroitly, but her call got me thinking. She was a nice lady, and Iíve met a lot of nice ladies who are liberals. When...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Democrat John Kerry is asking county elections officials to allow his witnesses to visually inspect the 92,000 ballots cast in Ohio in which no vote for president was recorded, a Kerry lawyer said Sunday night. The request is one of 11 items that Kerry is asking for as part of the recount that Ohio's 88 county boards of election will begin this week, according to a letter sent to the boards over the weekend. "We're trying to increase the transparency of the election process," said Donald McTigue, the lawyer handling the recount for the Kerry campaign. Two...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 5 -- When Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell certifies the state's final presidential election results, declaring President Bush the winner by about 119,000 votes, critics say they intend to present two challenges. Lawyers representing voters upset about problems at the polls plan to contest the results with the Ohio Supreme Court, citing documented cases of long lines, a shortage of machines and a pattern of problems in predominantly black neighborhoods. In addition, third-party candidates, bolstered by a favorable federal court ruling, plan to file requests for a recount in each of Ohio's 88 counties. About...

    President Bush's unofficial margin of victory in Ohio is safe, after the remaining 10 counties in this battleground state finished ballot certification Wednesday and results showed there were fewer provisional ballots validated than the margin. Ohio's 88 counties reported validating 121,598 provisional ballots from 156,977 checked, according to an Associated Press tabulation. Bush's margin of victory on Nov. 2 was 136,483 votes. He received 2,796,147 votes to Kerry's 2,659,664. Kerry conceded after figuring that he would not get enough of the provisional ballot vote to overtake Bush's total. The state previously reported there were 155,337 provisional ballots statewide. Provisionals are...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Most of the presidential election provisional ballots rejected so far in Ohio came from people who were not even registered to vote, election officials said after spending nearly two weeks poring over thousands of disputed votes. The vast majority of provisional ballots have been legitimate, however. Of the 11 counties that have completed checking ballots, 81 percent of the ballots are valid, according to a survey Monday by The Associated Press. Unofficial vote totals show President Bush beating Democrat John Kerry by 136,000 votes in Ohio, and Kerry has conceded there are not enough outstanding votes to...
