My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Gregoire Successfully Steals Election!!

Or, at least, that's the headline I would have put on this story.

OLYMPIA, Wash. - The head of the state Democratic Party said late Tuesday that recount results from King County give Democrat Christine Gregoire an eight-vote victory in the closest governor's race in state history.

Neither King County nor the Republican party could confirm the hand recount results on Tuesday night. But if the Democrats' analysis is correct, it's a stunning reversal in the gubernatorial race, which has been hotly contested ever since election day.

I don't know how much I really care about this, except that it's yet another example of Democrats pushing through the courts what they couldn't win at the ballot box. Just on that principle alone, I was pulling for Dino Rossi.

On the other hand, Washington state's ports could play a crucial role in Homeland Security, so it would be nice if responsible people were in charge of state government there.

Whatever the results, it should make for somewhat amusing reading over the next several days. Stay tuned. . .
