John You are correct, the testing will be a disaster. These people need to get the scanners in compliance and run those, just drop the TSx machines alltogether. People still using the TSx machines need to drop it.

Everyone study up on election law in their own jurisdictions (county, borough, etc) and find out if testing is illegal. I mean testing at election time rather than well before it.
A place to start researching is right here.

Searching the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) on federal elections can be done here.
In my #2 above, scroll down to state law and select the state you are interested in. (It is below the federal stuff.)

Excellent blog. This is my first time here, haven't seen this one before but saved to my favorites. I can't see McCain getting in. His last bid to run failed and it was "poof" his campaign ended. The press now reports that Hillary is dropping in the polls as folks think she is "too mean" when she acts agressive.
We have all noticed that the candidate that runs the most positive campaign always seems to win. Here are some examples.
Carter vs Ford Carter had positive message he won
Bush vs Carter Bush won (thousand points of light)
Clinton vs Bush Clinton way more positive with his campaign than Bush
Bush W runs again Gore Bush had more positive message he wins
Kerry vs Bush Kerry talks mostly about Vietnam and his voice reminds us of the donkey from Winnie the Pooh what's his name "Eeore"? So Bush wins.
Just you wait and see you guys, whoever has the most positive message wins. Here's another good site, it's not a blog but it's a non partisan pro America video page. Enjoy

David Gergen made an interesting comment on This Week with George Stephanopolous, which relates to your "We have all noticed that the candidate that runs the most positive campaign always seems to win" statement.
Gergen said that the republicans are much better campaigners than the democrats, however the democrats are much better at governing than the republicans are.
We need good governing, not good campaigning ... it is time to hold the republicans to account and put the better governing democrats in power.
Even if it is only to punish the republicans for screwing things up so bad ... better government will be the icing on the cake of accountability.
