Nah... I don't object to the call for a count of paper ballots. That's
why they're there; and a good statistical sampling will be done.

I just didn't like the false description of prior polls; the lies about
Chavez' policies; the misrepresentation of the recall process; the
vague insinuations of fraud, with no supporting evidence; the actual
libel about "autocratic, aggressive" and the like; the obnoxious
selection of alleged "anomalies" that aren't really unlikely.
