Kos kooks: "Damn that Diebold...or, uh, somebody!"

The moonbats over at Kos Kook Central are frothing over the diabolical Diebold electronic voting machine company having screwed one of their own out of yet "another" electoral win! From Ace:
in Florida, an epic battle is brewing over the electronic Diebold voting machines that ate 18,000 votes for Democrat Christine Jennings in FL-13 and cost her the election.

Not only is an expensive recount in the cards, but campaign and DCCC lawyers are flocking down, demanding the state freeze the machines for inspection.

These are the opening salvos in what will be the battle to end Diebold.
To put it bluntly, to anyone who has ever complained about Diebold, this is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. No more talk needed. No more advocacy needed. This is a real-world, legal frontal assault on those electronic voting machines.

If we win this battle, you'll be able to kiss Diebold goodbye.
I've got it: Diebold is eeeeevil because its CEO once donated to Bush (even though that CEO has been gone a while now). So down with Diebold, right?
Right. There's just one slight problem with the Kosnuts' rant: the machines in FL-13 weren't made by the evil Diebold. Nope, they were made by a company called ES&S. So, the Kostards issued a correction...sorta:
Update II: Machines in FL-13 were made by ES&S. Same difference.
Same difference? As Ace wryly observes:
Damn that Diebold for stealing our--


Okay, damn ES&S. Same difference. Damn somebody.

Look, I don't care if the machines were f#%$ing made on planet Vulcan and are accurate to the nth order thanks to quantum computing-- we still won, and Diebold is still trying to screw with us!!!
What a bunch of dumb#sses! Not only are they crazy, but they're stupid, too. Dangerous combo, my friends.

Well, if you fine folks will excuse me, I'm heading to lunch. I'm craving a Burger King Bic Mac. What? A Big Mac is made at McDonalds? Well, same difference!
