The butterfly ballot cost Gore the election. Of the actual votes cast GWB won in every version of the recount Gore wanted (and, amusingly, lost in every version of the recount the Bush side wanted). But there is no way that Pat Buchannen won 4x the votes he got anywhere else in the state in the one place that he should have received the least support. It's pretty clear people were confused, and it's pretty clear had there been no confusion Gore would have been in a position to be on top by a decent margin when all the legal challenges began.

Then again, the networks calling the state for Florida probably depressed Bush's vote totals in the pan-handle.

But it is funny that the third-party candidate you'd think would have cost Bush the election actually ended up costing Gore the election (thanks to the idiots in PBC).

The RNC screwed the pooch using shenanigans to keep Paul delegates out at the state conventions with strong arm tactics or stripping him of delegates when they didn't even need to do that because Romney was still going to win. Those moves could hurt them with more Paul supporters casting a vote for Johnson. They can't win without getting more of those votes and they know it pissed a lot of the Paul folks off. So this strategy makes sense. It's just more of the same.
Ugh on the Ron Paul delegate BS. Let it go already. If supporters want to give him money then go right ahead, but stop believing he was ever in a position to do anything except cash checks.
