A Happy Little Accident

The Democrats are the Bob Ross's of politics; every "glitch" and "mistake" is just a happy little accident!

Michigan GOP chairwoman says software glitch tallied thousands of Republican votes as Democrat

President Trump’s supporters are pointing to a small Michigan county as evidence that vote-counting software used in the state may undercut Trump’s number of votes — as the Trump campaign fends off the appearance of inevitable defeat.

Republicans point out that in northern Antrim County, thousands of votes were counted in error for Biden, and for Democratic Sen. Gary Peters instead of GOP candidate John James.

Biden is ahead by 146,123 votes in Michigan with 98 percent of ballots counted, and the Associated Press and major news networks declared him the winner.

Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said at a Friday press conference that "in Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said, ‘tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.'”

Cox said that "since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity,” or more than half of Michigan’s 83 counties. She urged those counties to "closely examine their results for similar discrepancies.” Trump’s campaign circulatedher remarks on Twitter.

1 "Software glitch," my eyeball! I'll bet you Jack Kemp agrees. He and I were both in the IT business.

3 I should insert a caveat here, Tim. Jack and I worked on mainframes, and spent a lot of time testing our stuff. From what we see of "modern" software, the stuff gets less testing and is thrown out there quickly. Case in point: the operating system updates for Windows (every new version of which has more bugs than the previous version) and Apple iOS platforms.

But when you read about vote tabulation software that suddenly switched a whole bucketload of votes for Trump over to Bite-Me, that really doesn't sound like a software glitch; it sounds like what Auric Goldfinger would have called enemy action. And so would I.

4 It is clearly malicious Dana. You can't make those kinds of errors work one way.
