...But then again I'm always skeptic about the "official story" when a "computer glitch/trouble" is concerned.
So in the morning, after my alarm goes off, instead of hitting snooze I hit the radio button which is set to the local NRP station. I listen to
Public radio because the jingle-type-ads on regular radio stations make me sick.
This morning I just happened to catch an interview Linda Wertheimer was having with Carolyn Tallet, president of the Clinton County Republican Women's
Club, and Edith Pfeffer, chair of the Clinton County Republican Central Committee, about the events leading up to the final tally of votes in the Iowa
Of course I was kind of curious to hear how RP did so I listened more intentively then I usually do. Carolyne sounded like a really nice old lady,
and begins to tell her story. Everything in the interview seemed like standard MSM news until...
I had received a phone call about 11:20 from the Romney worker who had been working in our county and he said he needed the count and I said well "why
do you need the count for too" and he said "well they don't have the count in Des Moines" and I said "but I know they were called in" and he said
"well I think there was a computer glitch... that the computers went down" and I said "oh O.K." and gave him the requested #'s
As soon as I heard the words computer glitch ... I was like, SuuUUUuure ... we give the government hundreds of billions of dollars and they buy
glitchy computer systems, and they just so happen to only glitch during an election time. I don't know about you but if real life government systems
were as glitchy as they are for when voting occurs... many peoples criminal, education and medical records would "get lost" all the time.
Then what really put icing on the cake for me was when Linda (the interviewer) asked Carolyne "Did Clinton County come out the way you thought it
and Carolyn replies:
Umm, I really thought Ron Paul was going to do a little better then he did tonight
....and did she say this because in reality most people in Clinton County voted for RP... who knows. Just thought the whole thing sounded fishy to me.
I mean I've read a thread or two where the GOP guaranteed RP would not win Iowa, and I wouldn't put it past the two-headed-demon system to pull
something like that. I mean look at Bush's first win... the Electoral College picked him for President and popular vote DID NOT... so they blamed it
