this instantly makes it a colossal victory for republicans, and we are well on our way to a palin/bachmann 2012 win.

i'm pretty sure that's correct.

So what's the vote threshold that he WON'T sue for a recount?
 
2009-11-17 12:33:14 AM
It just shows you, republicans need to be more, more, more, conservative.

This raises interesting questions. People always make a big thing about the moment that a politician "concedes" on election night (or afterwards), and I'd always vaguely assumed that that moment of "concession" actually means something. But does it? Anyone know of any precedent on this?

RockIsDead: Dem vote rigging.

In an area that's been (R) for 100+ years? Dems ain't in control in an area like that. I'm thinking the opposite, but it obviously wasn't enough.

FTA: Should Hoffman come away with more votes, a highly unlikely possibility.

Subby shouldn't play that. +2.
 
2009-11-17 12:34:56 AM
No. Sorry.

Where is the law that says once you concede, you've lost. End of story.

Imagine every other competition where someone concedes. They've lost, they have to wait till next time. There's no going back.

Democrat Owens got himself sworn in before all the votes were counted so that he could cast a decisive vote for Pelosi-Obama takeover of healthcare. He didn't care that the absentee ballots from overseas military had not yet been counted. This clown will be voted out in 2010, no doubt.

Last I heard, that district ceases to exist next redistricting.

Hoffman conceded. Owens was sworn in. Why wouldn't you be sworn in if your opponent conceded?

Actually, this would suck. I actually like the guy who won governor in VA, McDonnell. He looks good for 2012.

By conceding, the other guy gets certified.

By being certified, the guy goes to Washington.

By going to Washington, he gets sworn in.

By being sworn in, he's a member of Congress.

That's too many levels to undo, and if Hoffman filed some lawsuit, it would take more than the two years of the term anyway.

To be honest, it would just mean you wouldn't hear concession speeches election night unless it was an absolute blowout for the winner.

Your trolling is getting more obvious. Time to knock it up a notch.
 
2009-11-17 12:41:12 AM
This is too perfect. Hoffman likely still won't get the seat, but this will serve to reinforce the notion that going full teabag retard in 2010 will yield good results.

And here I was bummed out about NY-23...

How do you choose which alt to use? Skinny, random or libby?

/Yes, I know you farked up the other night using Libby instead of Skinny. That was meta.

More obvious? He's already outed himself as an alt. How can he possibly be more obvious?

A "concession" doesn't actually mean anything in terms of anything enforcable. But Owens was sworn in a couple days after the election because Hoffman did not contest the election. Had he done so, the swearing in would have had to wait until there was a final count.

As is, there are 5k votes left to be counted (not the 10k as the article says), and Hoffman has a 3k deficit. Obviously, there is no chance of a comeback.

Well that's the point. At one point in time he was indistinguishable from someone real, and now he's just too obvious.

GaryPDX: Actually, this would suck. I actually like the guy who won governor in VA, McDonnell. He looks good for 2012.

But in 2012, he'll only have had 2 years real experience, and really only 1 year before he has to start campaigning 24/7.

Nobody would ever vote for such an empty-suit, inexperienced candidate.

Keep reaching for the stars, conservitard!

I dunno, any chance they can make people think ACORN is doing the recounting?

The vote was, as I'm sure you're aware, 220-215. Hoffman's vote was not "decisive" under any definition of the word.

Though it would be quite amusing if it were actually decisive, since it was the actions of the teabaggers like yourself that split the vote and handed a seat to a Democrat for the first time in over a hundred years. Clearly, your purity purge is well on its way to success.

If they'll out of state Hoffman supporters, there's a good chance they already do.
