[via http://wonkette.com] Here is the post from hacker group Anonymous regarding “tunnels” they found (and blocked) into the Ohio voting machines. Still being fact-checked, this story does explain a lot about Rove’s rave on election night. This story deserves to be examined in more detail.
Greetings to the good people of the Velvet Revolution

Pleased we were to see that you put your faith in the hands of we protectors of democracy, and tempted too to claim your generous reward. But wealth does not drive us.
Two months prior to your offer, we chose to take action against those who have subverted the will of the people in past elections, which resulted in terrible destruction across the globe. We began following the digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule Of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.
After a rather short time, we identified the digital structure of Karl’s operation and even that of his ORCA. This was an easy task in that barn doors were left open and the wind swept us inside.
So what do we do with these doors? Do we leave them open and catch the thieves as they steal the prize? Or do we close them so they cannot steal the prize?
Our decision–protect the citizens.
We coded and created, what we call, The Great Or. A targeted password protected firewall that we tested and refined over the past weeks. We placed this code on more than one of the digital tunnels and their destinations that Karl’s not so smart worker bees planned to use on election night. We noticed that these tunnels were strategically placed to allow for tunnel rats to race to the server sewers from three different states. Ah yes, Karl tried to make it appear that there were more than three but we quickly saw the folly of his ploy.
We watched as Karl’s little boys and girls confidently ran their tests while Karl told his barons to smoke cigars.

From the often excellent CHOW.com —
The post title (and title of the blog) sez it all.
Oh, yes, I can see you are mad. That is quite the nice horn you have, and your middle finger is very shapely. I’m not sure what effect you think that’s going to have on me. I’ve already made my decision, and you showing that you are kind of a jerk is supposed to change my mind? All you’ve done is confirm that I made the right choice by denying you the ability to save yourself a couple of seconds by cutting in front of me. Look, everyone behind me agrees with me, so I’m comfortable letting you rage over there. Your anger is amusing more than anything else. That doesn’t mean I don’t hate you though. Oh, I very much do.
The story of the original Manhattan cocktail is an interesting read. 1,200 distilleries operating in New York before Prohibition. Indeed.
This is fairly amazing.
