Kucinich Want a Recount in New Hampshire

The AP story is here.

Yesterday we showed the vast left wing conspiracy paranoia theory from members of the far far left, not to bemistaken with the more ratonal moderate left and today we see Dennis the Menace Kucinich, is feeding the paranoia monster and "wants a recount to ensure that all ballots in his party's contest were counted. The Ohio congressman cited "serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors" about the integrity of Tuesday results."

His "serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors" he alludes to are the online specualtions from people that cannot accept the reality that sometimes polls are wrong and not representative of the whole voting public.

Kucinich alluded to reports alleging disparities around the state between hand-counted ballots, which tended to favor Sen. Barack Obama, and machine-counted ones that tended to favor Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. He also noted the difference between pre-election polls, which indicated Obama would win, and Clinton's triumph by a 39 percent to 37 percent margin.

Candidates who lose by 3 percentage or less are entitled to a recount for a $2,000 fee. Candidates who lose by more must pay for the full cost. Kucinich's campaign said it was sending the $2,000 fee to start the recount.

Already we are seeing talk of the conspiracy to cover up the conspiracy BEFORE the recount has even gotten started about the "potential outcome of any recount.

But this will not explain any irregularities. All errors will be a “whoops” this is no big deal, like 31 missing votes for Paul in Sutton. I fear this recount will instead serve to quash any concerns about 2000 & 2004 (or other problems down the road in 2008). It will be like voting irregularities on trial and the media will pronounce electronic tabulation as safe and flawless.

These conspiracy therorists see conspiracies around every corner and are seeing them and explaining them before the action OF the conspiracy even occurs.

Considering the Kucinich is so busy watching online specualtion instead of studying up on actual campaign issues, might be one reason that his showing in the recent caucus and primary has been so bad.
