Three weeks from now the polls will be closed in most precincts, and the business of counting the votes will be well underway. In some precincts it will be complete. At what point is the point of no return crossed? When do we accept that some of the votes, illegitimate though they may be, have to be accepted as part of the total? I think we're getting close to that point now. I caught a segment on Fox News earlier that mentioned Ohio's absentee ballots will be opened on the 25th, and at that point, once the ballots are separated from the envelopes, it's too late to determine which votes are fraudulent. Although he was writing more about positive (that is, photo) ID requirements, Deroy Murdock made a good point when he wrote "Similarly, the relatively small number of fraudulent vote registrations discovered so far could represent just enough systemic infection to sicken the entire body politic, especially if this election turns out closer than most now expect." I'm already infected, and I'm saying it now: If Obama wins and the vote is close, within a margin that could be attributed to vote fraud, he can't be considered the legitimate winner. You think 2000 was bad? You ain't seen nothin' yet.
