"In Broward County FL, the results reported by Scytl-owned SOE Software in 2008 showed an entire candidate, who was winning, disappear into vapor in the middle of the count, and in Hillsborough County FL and Dallas County TX, votes that had been reported began to disappear." ("*100% OF SOUTH CAROLINA VOTES GO THROUGH SCYTL", Bev Harris, blackboxvoting.org)

Of course, Harris is not saying that Gingrich stole the election, but it certainly makes you wonder, doesn't it? I mean, the margin of difference in the polling is just to too great to accept as "probable." Besides, as I said in an earlier article, I believe this whole mano-a-mano thing between Gingrich and Romney is just a set-up to split the vote so that Jeb Bush can ride in at convention-time and grab the GOP nomination.

And -- guess what? Bloomberg just ran an article on Sunday about Bush, pointing out that the former Florida governor has refused to endorse either candidate (although he has scolded them for their squabbling). Here's an excerpt from the article:

"Jeb Bush ... said he will "stay neutral" in the state's Republican presidential primary while warning his party's candidates to leave the 'circular firing squad' of their debates behind and start appealing to a broader audience.

"Bush's remarks, in an exclusive interview, establish a challenge for his party's candidates as the contest advances to Florida, where the Jan. 31 primary will take the race into its biggest and most diverse arena yet." (Bloomberg)

So, Bush has assumed the mantle of "elder statesman," right? That's bound to help him when convention-time rolls around and the party-faithful are sick and tired of Romney and Gingrich's endless mud-slinging and dirty tricks. Old Jeb might just find himself on top of the GOP ticket without even breaking a sweat.

Stranger things have happened.
