The speculation about what Fat Karl knows about the coming election runs from ‘œthe fix is in’ to ‘œit’™s all a bluff‘, but let’™s look at a few things that Fat Karl does know:

Fat Karl knows that there hasn’™t been a full or even a partial audit done of any state or federal election in decades, and if the public were to look at the public records of the past several elections, the numbers of people voting and the number of cast ballots would not add up. I’™m not talking about a recount here folks, I’™m talking about a simple audit.

Fat Karl knows that over 80% of American votes are COUNTED by electronic means, and that the companies that make those machines are also part of the machine ‘œcertification process’. Additionally, Karl knows that ‘œwhat happens in the machines, stays in the machines’, since the manufacturers won’™t release the source code for inspection by anyone, even for the certification process.

Fat Karl knows that the AP’™s process for collecting and reporting election totals is also a ‘œsecret’ that the AP won’™t disclose for oversight purposes.

Fat Karl knows that the consortium of ‘œnews’ outlets, formerly known as the NES (News Election Service) most recently known as VNS (Voter News Service) and it’™s offspring NEP (National Election Pool) also dispersed election results, projections, and exit poll information utilizing secret methods.

Fat Karl is pretty confident that in a few key states the Republicans will once again ‘œprevail’ over the will of the people because of the fail-safe procedures that are in place. (see Ohio)

Fat Karl knows that once an election is declared, all it takes is a loud, shrill wail to alert the GOP faithful to circle the wagons, beat their chests triumphally and denounce anyone who would dare question the veracity of the result.

Fat Karl knows that within days of the declaration of a winner, that the news media will reinforce the result with countless stories of how the win was a result of some dirty trick played right, and never once looking at what happened with the vote count or exit polls, until it is accepted as fact by the public at large. (See Max Clelland)

Additionally Fat Karl knows, that if the above electoral ‘œsafe guards’ don’™t work out this time that Bush has been extremely aggressive in implementing safe guards of his own.
