Is This For Real?

This post: Kerry Beat Dean in New Hampshire by Only 1.5% When Computers Weren’t Doing the Counting says that where machines counted the votes, Kerry beat Dean by a big margin, but when the votes were counted by hand he did not. Read the post.

Is this for real, or is someone just making stuff up? Should Dean ask for a hand recount? (These are paper ballots – it was optical scan machines counting them v.s. hand counts.)
