Wyalt Derp: FlashHarry: i love that the romney team called it orca in response to obama's narwhal software. "see, an orca can kill a narwhal! hurr hurr!" well, it killed sweet fark all this time, pal.Somebody pointed out in another thread that it's an anagram of ACORN without the N(-word).
Marcus Aurelius: phaseolus: Marcus Aurelius: Access databaseAre you kidding??No, many voting machines tally to an Access database.
Tamater: YodaBlues: Pants full of macaroni!!: FlashHarry: shoo-in, not shoe-in./sorry, pet peeve...Same difference, for all intensive porpoises.It's kind of a mute point, now isn't it./FTFY
Heraclitus: It's fun to think about winning the lottery too, but thats more likely to happen than this!
AdolfOliverPanties: Smokescreen. Double bluff. An old XK Red 47 technique.Rove planted the Anonymous story. He knows it will never be proven, or even investigated too much, but he can sell it to some of his donors and maybe not end up in cement shoes for squandering so many millions of their money.

vpb: It sounds dubious to me too. Are they saying that this ORCA had hacked into all the voting machines and could change the votes? So if they compromised Rove's system, wouldn't that imply that THEY could have changed the vote count?This sounds like something from the latest bond movie, not like something real.

impaler: The only thing Anonymous is doing is trolling Republicans for the lulz.

Cinaed: Karl Rove a douchebag, an asshole, a dipshiat, a ham.... yes.A master criminal intent on
what_now: All ORCA was designed to do was to remind Romney voters to vote, and it turned out there simply weren't enough of them to matter even IF ORCA wasn't such a huge fail.
CorporatePerson: Heraclitus: It's fun to think about winning the lottery too, but thats more likely to happen than this!That's not what's important. The important thing is we need to make sure the Freepers latch onto this.Btw does anyone know if the Freepers have caught onto this yet? They can always use another boogeyman.
odinsposse: Yeah, none of this story makes sense.Karl Rove wasn't/couldn't be part of ORCA because it was part of the Romney campaign. Even if he had some subtle hand in it there had to be someone running the actual operation out in the open and it wasn't Rove.ORCA was basically just a website the Romney supporters could access from their smartphones for strike lists. If they were hacking the election machines why would they even need remote capabilities? Are the voting machines even internet capable? Why not just implant some code on the machines and let them run?ORCA was a crappy piece of outsourced software done on the cheap. If you were going to do something as risky as steal an election why would you outsource it and never stress test it?
