I take back the "bog trot" characterization. I looked it up:

        bogtrotter, NOUN:
        1. A person who lives in or frequents bogs.
        2. Offensive Slang Used as a disparaging term for a person of Irish
birth or descent.

I certainly wouldn't want to suggest that the problem with Michael
Shamos' article has anything to do with his Irish descent (it's an
Irish name, right?).

The problem is simply that he's a dishonest shill for the proprietary
DRE voting machine vendors. But dishonest shills occur in most every
ethnic group.
