Benevolent Misanthrope: WTF is up with Florida? Do the rest of us have to go down there and teach you mofos how to goddamn COUNT?
Arkanaut: simplicimus: Obviously, Florida need additional abacuses.Abacuses? Those are killing American jobs. We just need enough hard-working, red-blooded Americans with 10 fingers and 10 toes, and we'll get those votes counted one way or another.
fortheloveof: fortheloveof: The problem is they have Count Count counting for then qand that takes a while what with all the laughing involved....for them and that...Darn phone
MooseUpNorth: I don't like this. There should never be a time limit on an official recount. Elections are too important to do anything but account for every goddamn ballot. Anything less is undemocratic.
coeyagi: I would love to see a Tim Burton mega-size Cornel West model (a la like something out of Peewee's Big Adventure) devour Allen West. [greycoast.files.wordpress.com image 402x402]
GAT_00: The amount of butthurt in this guy is almost impressive.
jjorsett: I look forward to the Florida Supreme Court chiding election officials for "hypertechnical reliance upon statutory provisions" in following dates prescribed by law, just as they did in the Bush recounts.
Boxcutta: rynthetyn: simplicimus: Boxcutta: What the lame stream media won't tell you is that the Florida Division of Elections was being intimidated by New Black Panthers.I thought the Florida Panthers were extinct.Gary Bettman killed them.Welcome to Obama's America.

RexTalionis: For no reason, here's me with Cornel West.
p the boiler: Maybe if they invested more in education in Florida they would be able to count in situations such as these.
jake_lex: DubyaHater: One more dirty TeaBagger getting the axe. Sounds great to me. Enjoy the circle jerk at Fox News Mr. West.He's too crazy for them. If they fired Glenn Beck for going too far with the conspiracy derp, this moron isn't getting within 100 miles of Fox News' studios.
Nem Wan: So, you can't have a recount if it takes too long. Might as well flip a coin instead of having an election.
note* - turnout percentages will show over 100% due to a two page ballot. the tabulation system (GEMS) provides voter turnout as equal to the total cards cast in the election divided by the number of registered voters. also note that some voters chose not to return by mail the second card containing the amendments.\
realmolo: jso2897: MooseUpNorth: I don't like this. There should never be a time limit on an official recount. Elections are too important to do anything but account for every goddamn ballot. Anything less is undemocratic.That's what I said. In 2000.The problem with that is, you'd have the loser ENDLESSLY claiming there were more votes that hadn't been counted yet. How would you know when to stop? Would you keep the election undecided until EVERY registered voter had been accounted for? How would you do that? Have another vote, and require every registered voter to show up?It's just not practical.
PlasticMoby: Poor Allen West. The wait must be torture.
RexTalionis: Edson, however, said other problems arose this morning, when the recount resumed at 8 a.m. The recount showed 900 voters cast ballots in precinct 93, where there are 7 registered voters, Edson said.You know, I wonder if that's related from the voter roll purges the Republican governor Rick Scott instituted, which means that those people had to cast provisional ballots.
dahmers love zombie: OK, West, you farkstick -- what kind of "emergency" are you basing this argument on? You gonna go with the "all Democrats are commies" line again, and see if the red-baiting approach works? Maybe you could go fire a gun next to the Supervisor of Elections' head, and claim that her hearing loss constitutes an emergency.
