You just have to wonder

What the hell is Diebold smoking?

David Bear, a spokesman for Diebold Election Systems, said the potential risk existed because the company’s technicians had intentionally built the machines in such a way that election officials would be able to update their systems in years ahead.

“For there to be a problem here, you’re basically assuming a premise where you have some evil and nefarious election officials who would sneak in and introduce a piece of software,” he said. “I don’t believe these evil elections people exist.”

Isn’t that the sort of thing they say on The Daily Show? As a joke?

    Wait a second: did he just say that the critical security flaw in Diebold’s machines isn’t important because it needs an ill-intentioned person to exploit it?

    Excuse me, I need to go pick my jaw up off the floor.

    Excuse me, but I think you violated a sacred blogging law by not including a picture of Katherine “Creulla de” Harris at the end of this post.
