That message comes from the TCP/IP stack, not postfix itself.  It
means the other machine refused your request to open a TCP connection.

Well,

$ host -t mx vote-democrats.com
vote-democrats.com  	MX	10 mtk.comcor.ru

$ host -t a mtk.comcor.ru
mtk.comcor.ru       	A	212.45.0.156


For some reason postfix was trying to connect to the wrong machine.
Maybe their DNS records were temporarily broken at the time you were
trying to send them mail.  Maybe you have a broken DNS setup that
caused postfix to try the wrong host.  I'm not entirely sure.
