So who's the guy feeling up his daughter?

So there's a chance Sink might win after all. Looking forward to it.

This is what the Florida tag was made for.

"I apologize this has taken so long," the ever-polite Scott said.

So I need to turn on my sarcasm meter to read the news now?

Scott promised to create 700,000 jobs in Florida.That comes out to 10,447 jobs per county.

I am looking forward to Foxconn moving their iPhone plants from China to Florida.

I was at least relieved when I saw my own county shift from red to blue when the % reporting increased. The fact that the supposed anti-corruption populist wave was largely in favor of Bernie Madoff Jr. incenses me.

Rubio still can't figure out if he's establishment or tea party either.

TheRaven7: Rubio still can't figure out if he's establishment or tea party either.

His "second chance" tone was interesting. At least it's more gracious than the rest of the GOP's "Ha ha! We told you! You guys failed!"

"Second chance" implies the GOP was at fault for their own marginalization. I hope Rubio means it.

I'm friends with people on his staff if you can believe it. You are spot on about the political identity crisis he's going to have to work through. My friends wouldn't disagree at all.

FTFA: State law calls for an automatic machine recount in the event of a margin that is one half of 1 percentage point.

It doesn't matter either way the state leg now has veto proof majorities so lets see how long it takes for them to re-ban gay adoption, throw another we hate the gays measure on the ballot, require a woman to get an ultra sound before having an abortion, and come up with some teacher performance plan that kicks money back to Jeb. I say a week.

Yes, and it's still just as juvenile. Haranguing election workers with dick jokes doesn't get the votes counted any faster.

It's just all part of their Small Government philosophy.

No argument there. The collective IQ and empathy of the country appears to have dropped sharply during that time, and it'll take a long time to recover.

"Who's trying to steal the election this time, red or blue?"

Blue, as usual. Palm Beach County is the bluest in the state, which is why it was one of only three counties where Al Gore wanted recounts, is the only county where entire boxes of ballots from Republican districts "disappeared" from the backs of cop cars between the polling places and the elections office and is the only county that actual went for Hillary Clinton's idiot brother when he ran for Senate.

Most of the problem here really isn't "worker error" despite what the SoE said. It is "voter error." Apparently the same people who couldn't read directions in 2000, so they didn't fill out ballots correctly or turn them over to remove any "hanging chards" AS THEY WERE TOLD TO ON THE BALLOT CARD ITSELF, also couldn't handle joining two lines together in pen for each ballot item. Hence the number of absentee ballots being reviewed because they have two selections for the same race, were done in pencil, not pen, and include ambiguous erasures or *were* done in pen, but then altered with correction fluid, contrary to the printed instructions.

OK, them's the facts. Let the flames begin.

Joe

P.S.

Alex? Sunk.

So is my State. They elected replaced a retiring 13-year Dem House veteran with a GOP soccer mom who platformed almost exclusively on evil towelhead muslims. It's like living in the bizarro world.

And in other news, Bachmann got re-elected too. Welcome to the end of the world.

You are correct. It is, however, funny. Lots of political and/or editorial cartoons aren't. And, if anyone who should be counting votes sees it in this thread before the votes are counted, Florida has bigger problems than previously indicated.

Macinfarker: Welcome to the end of the world.

I wouldn't go that far. Just the end of any confidence the world might've had in the ability of the US's citizens to muster any kind of coherent, logical reasoning regarding their elections. I mean, just how stupid must we look on the world stage right now? Effectively neutering a President who has done great things in just the 2 years he's been in office...it's sad. It shows we're still, largely, a pretty ignorant nation.

Yep.

But I blame Pelosi...she completely dropped the ball on public leadership here, even if she did show good leadership within the House itself.

It shouldn't have been too difficult to convince the public that two years is not enough time to fix an economy, especially after the right controlled things for 8 years, and ruined a perfectly good surplus Clinton left behind.

My state is worse, we reelected a little farking troll (the under the bridge kind not the thread hijacking kind) named Babs. What is there some kind of rule that only one troll can be eliminated in a single year and Helen Thomas already filled the quota?
