Too stupid to breathe

From Salon: "Fully 26 percent of respondents said they believe ACORN stole the election for Obama, compared to 62 percent who said they think he won it fair and square. 12 percent weren't sure.

The numbers were even more revealing when broken down along partisan lines. A majority of Republicans -- 52 percent -- think ACORN stole the presidency, while just 27 percent said they believe Obama's office is legitimately his."

Really, I want to know. How do their brains function well enough to send signals to their hearts and lungs?

Using CNN's data, Obama got 254 EV's from states he won by 10% or more of the vote, and another 16 from states he won by 9%, which would get him to 270. Really? ACORN stole more than 10% of the votes in one of those 22 states, most of which are hard-core blue?

I want to add a question to their poll - does it hurt being that stupid?

Especially in light of the fact that there is no evidence of even a single illegal vote being cast by a phony Acorn-registered voter.

Yeah. I could run a statistical analysis finding what the uncertainty would have to be in each state's results to have changed the outcome of the election, but it's not worth the effort. Florida in 2000 was stolen. 2008 was not stolen in half the country.
