Ohio Recount: So Worth It!
Maybe we'll finally stop getting those "Why aren't you covering this?" emails:
Election officials finished the presidential recount in Ohio on Tuesday, with the final tally shaving about 300 votes off President Bush's six-figure margin of victory in the state that gave him a second term.Of course, now we have to deal with "They stole the recount!" form letters and maps showing how the counties that went to Bush were former "slave counties"....
The recount shows Bush winning Ohio by 118,457 votes over John Kerry, according to unofficial results provided to The Associated Press by the 88 counties. Lucas County, home to Toledo, was the last to finish counting.
We lost, everybody. L-O-S-T. Just concentrate on your Canadian visa applications; if you screw that up, you can't blame Diebold.
