I just hope it’s not to late. God Bless America.

Gore did, in fact, lose the vote. It had nothing to do with anything else. The recounts done later, confirmed that.

As for consequences. Better watch out Boris. If you think we had it bad then, then you haven’t seen anything yet.

Haven’t you heard the cries throughout the world to stop the spending?

Quit living in the past. But, those were the good years.

Ordering the respondent New York State Board of Elections and the Commissioners thereof to certify the name of James Tedisco as elected to the public office of Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, 20th Congressional District, in Dutchess, New York, at the Special Election held therefor on the 31st Day of March, 2009, or alternatively enjoining the improper issuance of a certificate of election for the said public office.

That motion was struck out by the court on the spot. They didn’t buy the old “heads I win, tails you lose” routine from the GOP, apparently.

Just like Florida 2000. Wonder if the consequences will be as bad too?
