  •  Isn't It Interesting . . . (none)
    . . . how the Rethugs are so vocal in decrying the concept of a complete recount ("Those Dems just want to keep recounting until they get the result they want."), yet now that they've sensed that they may lose this time around -- possibly even without the 700+ disputed ballots -- they're becoming more and more eager to just throw out the whole election and start from scratch?  If they can't get rid of a pesky few hundred ballots, why not just ged rid of all 2,900,000 of them?  Heck, why even bother having elections at all?

    How do they square this apparent inconsistency?  Oh, right, they don't need to -- their overwhelming mandate nationally has exempted them from accusations of hypocrisy.  Silly me!  And of course the WSJ Editorial Board is one of the few places that probably feels that Fox News is fair and balanced.

    •  Of course they want a new vote (none)
      The the Repubs have been trying to brainwash voters that Rossi is the Governer now and Christine is just sour grapes and should give up and leave.  Chris, "But Why?" Vance, has stated that the democrats will try to steal the election and that is a recount is only of those votes that have only been counted the first time.

      So any extra votes that have been found that were were missed by the machines whould be thrown out.  Why don't we just through out the whole system.  And make sure you through out the Snohomish county votes.  They can say that now as it turns out that Christine had the lead by 51% in Snohomish County with Absentee ballets.

      Personally, I think that even with out the extra legal votes that Christine still has this won.  But Vance is whinning that they will continue and even if they have to due in every County and keep us from having a Governer if the Suppreme Court rules in favor of King County on the votes that there were not counted.

      But was it just me or didn't Dino Rossi say that he had faith in the voters of Washington State and Christine G. had faith in Lawyers.  IF the GOP Go sue happy and try to force a second election at the expense of the Tax payers of Washington state, I'ld like to see how they spin that one as it goes against Everything they were useing against the Democrats.

    •  tin foil warning... (none)
      Of course, they'd rather have a new election.  This would give them time to figure out how to rig it to a Rossi win.   Just sayin'....
      •  They Already Know How (none)
        Republicans seem to trend more motivated so it's very likely they'd win in a re-vote.

        Unless there are things about WA state I don't know, which is possible since this is only my 4th year here.
