So, sure as shit, it’s down to Ohio. Last I checked, it’s Bush by 136,221 votes. No provisional ballots have been checked yet, but Kerry would have to win a substantial portion of them. I’m trying to remain optimistic, but I haven’t had a whole lot to base optimism on in the past 4 years. We’ll have to wait at least 10 days for a decision, provided the Supreme Court doesn’t take an interest and call it for Bush sooner, on the premise of “because we fucking feel like it.”
Guess the ‘Publies were right – good move to use voter intimidation in Ohio. The beauty of this was even if the case gets appealed again somehow, there’s no way you can ever quantify how many votes were lost because untrained Republican challengers were standing at the polls. Brilliantly played, worthy of the Khmer Rouge.
A ‘Publie controlled House, Senate, and potentially the Presidency. The mind fucking boggles at that.
