One, two… one, two…

If you’re still wondering about the vote in Ohio and the exit polls and so on, you ought to be reading Keith Olberman. He’s been covering the story non-stop since the election; it’s probably not too overwrought to say he’s staking his credibility on it. He is also being very careful not to wear a tin-foil hat.

What’s clear at this point is that the Kerry campaign is very quietly working towards a recount in Ohio. The Libertarian/Green effort is acting, consciously or not, as a stalking horse. Jesse Jackson has come on board to do the heavy rhetorical lifting. A guy named Cliff Arnebeck is about to file a contest of election lawsuit, and he looks like he knows what he’s doing.

I don’t expect the recount to change anything, and I don’t think there was voter fraud by a strict definition of the word. I do think there were vote suppression efforts; I think there always are. But I do expect a recount to happen. And yeah, Kerry had it planned all along.
