As Republicans resist securing voting machines and requiring paper ballot backups, I can’t help thinking: Wouldn’t it be ironic if instead of the Russians hacking for the Republicans the Chinese foil the Russians and win the hacking war on behalf of the Democrats?

Should that happen, we must not let the Republicans get away with a “do-over.” They have their chance now to stop the hacking, and they don’t get a second chance after-the-fact.

Hmm. . . . Who do you think is better with computers? The Russians, who keep blowing their own shit up, or the Chinese, who make more computers than anyone?
