    with all the budget and homeland security problems, now is not the greatest time to be a governor, regardless of party. good luck to her, she'll need it.

    WHOA! WHOA! WHOA!!!

    What ever happen to the "concede for the sake of dignity" speech the conservatives gave to Al Gore?

    It's time for him to take Gore's position; find his dignity and concede to defeat, for the sake of his party.

    Except it's not national and won't have national repercussion. I just mentioned the 700 votes that they will start counting tomorrow. I am sure if she is still the winner after those votes are counted he will concede and on January 12th she will be Governor.

    Oh and had Gore conceded I believe that we would be patiently awaiting the inauguration of Al Gore right now. Instead he is on the last of laughable has-beens.

    I smell fraud, frankly. When he won by 261 votes, it was "Too close to call" said the Dem's...when he won by 42 votes, it was "..a TIE" said the dems...now she's ahead by 10 votes and the fuckin piece-of-shit dems are calling on him to concede "for the good of the PEOPLE"

    Fuck heads.

    I knew I wasn't the only one who smelled something fishy when the original vote goes to Rossi, the machine recount goes to Rossi, but curiously the hand recount, with a bunch of ballots mysteriously turning up all of a sudden, goes to the Dem.

    Right, especially a hand recount in King County - lib central.

    The recount will be challenged. The Democrats were all for making sure that various laws were obeyed to the letter for the recount, except when it came to where some of the ballots were supposed to be sealed and guarded and they weren't, then they turned their heads and coughed.

    It is amazing how poorly run our voting system is.
