Now that Barack Obama has won the election, it is the conservatives' job to somehow take the bloom off the rose. But how do you do that when Obama won electoral and popular vote majorities, and when the number of Democratic House and Senate seats grew? Allege ballot stuffing, of course!
But the belief that ACORN and others stuffed the ballot box takes a huge leap of logic. In fact, it puts the believer into extreme tinfoil-hat territory. Assume that groups like ACORN did in fact systematically load their new registrations with hoards of dead people, fictitious characters, and other imaginary people.
For anything to come of that, they've first got to get each state's election officials to actually add them to the rolls. Then, they would have had to keep detailed lists of all of those artificial persons, and match them up with actual people. Then, these people would have to actually go vote, using their aliases. For this to happen on any scale that would matter in a multi-million vote lead, would take an army of fake voters.
Now, when any other group of conspiracy theorists--say, 9/11 truthers--claims a mass conspiracy has occurred, they are usually answered with, "Nah, that would take too many people!" In other words, if thousands and thousands of false votes occurred, or in this case millions, somebody would talk. And the doubters of theories like this? Usually the very same people who are claiming that this vote was somehow stolen.
So, next time you hear a Limbaugh or Hannity (or one of their callers) claim that ACORN won this for Obama, just remember how nutty that theory really is. 'K?
