Legal sophistry is truly amazing, especially the use of the phrase
"reasonable probability." This case has absolutely nothing to do with
statistics or with probability. It is a simple case of arithmetic--look
at the undervote ballots. If this is not done by Florida officials, it
will be done by the media under the FOI law. Unless these ballots are
destroyed, we will know the true results. It's only a matter of time.

So a recount of thousands of machine-rejected ballots in a predominantly
Democrat county wouldn't give a reasonable probability of overturning
the Bush lead of a few hundred votes? What ****** rubbish!
