Saari's Basic Argument

Mr. Small wrote in part-

We could say that the 32 people with C>A>B, combined with 32 of those in

each of the other categories, cancel out.  It would be like saying in a 2-

way race that 40 ballots cast for A cancel out 40 of the ballots cast for

B, leaving an excess of 20 ballots for B.
D- Cancelling out votes that are part of a majority (when there are 3 or more 
choices) is highly improper (and simplistic).  

Thus -- Saari is full of hot air on the subject.
