Proof of fraud in the Minnesota Senate Race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken

The vote gap between Norm Coleman (R) and Al Franken (D for Dumb) has progressively narrowed from 727 to 236. What's more than a bit suspicious about this is that several news sources have reported finding batches of ballots with ALL votes for Franken and NONE for Coleman. That's like spilling a piggy bank with 491 pennies in it, and finding that all just happen to land with heads facing up. The odds of that are so astronomical that it is many trillions of times less probable than beyond a reasonable doubt. Even when the votes are found in heavily Democratic areas — something highly suspicious in itself — it still stinks to high heaven. When asked about this, Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota agreed that it defied rational explanation because Coleman would be expected to receive about one-third of the votes in those Democratic areas. Get out your scientific calculator and plug in (.67) yx (491); the result isn't appreciably different from (.5) yx (491). It is still many trillions of times less probable than beyond a reasonable doubt.

The probability of finding just a single batch of 100 votes for Franken is:

In a heavily Democratic area: 0.00000000000000000405

It is very difficult to appreciate how vanishingly small this chance is, but this may help clarify its stark improbability. Imagine that you had a piggy bank filled with 100 coins. If you could spill the coins, count the number of heads and tails, and replace them in the piggy bank every 10 seconds (and good luck doing it that fast!), it would still take about 80 billion years to have a reasonable chance of the coins landing with all heads or tails up.

In a typical area (representative of the whole state): 0.000000000000000000000000000000788

That would take a mere 800 trillion years.

Statistical improbabilities far more likely than these are sufficient to send men to the electric chair, so we have, once again, proof that the Democrats are cheating. If they weren't so ignorant of statistics, they could have concocted a better way to cheat.

Repeat after me, D is for Dumb.

Here is another one of the mental defects associated with liberalism.

The views expressed on this page may or may not reflect my current opinions, nor do they necessarily represent my past ones. After reading a slice of what I wrote in my various websites and books, you may conclude that I am a liberal Democrat or a conservative Republican. Wrong; there is a better alternative. Just as the primary benefit from debate classes results when students present and defend opinions contrary to their own, I use a similar strategy as a creative writing tool to expand my brainpower—and yours. Mystified? Stay tuned for an explanation. PS: The wheels in your head are already turning a bit faster, aren't they?
