As my brother points out, Rossi’s maintained a forty-two vote lead in the Washington gubenatorial race recount. Interesting quote from Gregoire in her statement (as published by Bloomberg): “Voters have a sacred right to have their ballots counted. That’s been...

Though I think these a little unfair…

Here’s the latest audio splice of Kerry damning himself with his own words… Albeit out of context, usually. This is no argument, but, being that the campaign is over now, it’s good for a laugh. http://johnkerryads.websiteanimal.com/ If you can’t get...

The People have Spoken.

ABC still refuses to call it. According to the official numbers, Bush has a lead in Ohio of 134,019. The official “provisional ballot” count is only at 110,361. There is no way Kerry wins the election. Bush has triumphed. To...
