Investigation Needed?
Posted by: Dale Franks on Wednesday, November 08, 2006

Presumptive House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, addressing the election result:
Despite the fact that it looks like the Democratic Party has demonstrated a strong resurgence, I urge the nation to withhold judgment. As we have noted constantly over the past few years, the electronic voting machines from untrustworthy companies like Diebold may seriously and fraudulently alter election results. I call upon the Justice Department to vigorously investigate the election outcome, to determine if Diebold and other conspiratorial companies gave us a victory that we did not deserve.
OK. Not really. She didn't say that. She actually thinks this election went very, very well. She loves those Diebold guys, who, she's learned, are real princes.

Which tells us much, I think about the veracity of previous complaints, doesn't it?

Not really, your reasoning is illogical.

If you were intimating that the machines were error prone and unreliable then what you said would make sense. However you say:
untrustworthy companies like Diebold may seriously and fraudulently alter election results
This clearly suggests that in your view the main complaint in the past has been that the machines are rigged in the Republican’s favour. If so one might expect Pelosi to comment that they won the election despite Diebold machines and so a lack of complaint now does not speak to the veracity of previous complaints.

One could argue that if she had the strength of her convictions and strength of character Pelosi would call for an investigation into the machines simply because she did not trust them even though the Dems have won. That would perhaps make her consistent (assuming she has called for investigations before - I assume she has from your premise) but a lack of calling still would not speak to veracity of previous complaints but rather to a complacency engendered by the result; the ’let sleeping dogs lie’ mentality.
