How Liberals Vote

There is considerable media coverage of accusations of vote fraud in the 2004 presidential elections (example). The post-election vote fraud have flowed from the left. Cognitive baseline affords one explanation: the left was cheating, so they firmly believe that the right had to have been cheating, too. The left just can't figure out how the right cheated. And that bugs them. This is, nonsense, of course. But a committed core of the left cling to this view.

The 2004 Weblog Awards are, in the overall scheme of things, no big deal. That fact makes it all the more revealing that the Daily Kos--a weblog popular for espousing the views of the left--has resorted to automated vote fraud in an attempt to cook the vote.

The 2004 Weblog Awards manager has responded thus:
Thanks to members of Daily Kos publishing automated voting code we've had to enforce strict IP checking for the polls. I had hoped that people would be able to conduct themselves in a civilized manner, but apparently that was too much to ask. Once the code got into circulation many of the sites nominated for Best Overall Blog got "help" by automated bots designed to continuously vote.

Those sites have been blocked permanently from accessing this site, but there's no way to stop future attacks short of limiting each IP address to one vote every 24 hours. Unfortunately this will affect AOL users and those behind corporate firewalls. The denizens of Daily Kos have left me no alternative.

More from Captain's Quarters, LGF, and PowerLine.

So, the next time you read an article about vote fraud, be skeptical and wonder if it is an offensive strategy intended to divert attention from investigation of the accusers fraudulent activities. What a sad, pitiful state of affairs.
