The recount in the Washington governor's race.

It looks like it's on.

The Washington Democrats will be having a press conference at 2 pm Pacific time to make the official announcement that they have the US $750, 000 needed to pay for a statewide hand recount of the vote.

Here's hoping that the Fates will give us another chance to make amends with the Earth. If Real Estate Rossi holds on to his lead, this state loses.

Rossi/McKenna will bring pain, grief, and great suffering to this state. They care only for gold; those who have it, those who give it.

That sucking sound you hear from South Sound will be the Capital drawing that last little bit of justice and fairness out of the Evergreen State.

Pray. Pray to your Gods and Goddesses. Pray like you've never prayed before.

GOoPers need not apply. Their souls were sold to the Demon Dollar long ago.

I'm not bitter, not really. Well, maybe a little.

Keep doing the great job of keeping us eastern readers aware of the goings on in this fight.

The party of crybabies. Everyone's out to get you. Do you hear the Republicans screaming about voter suppression in Wisconsin where their get-out-the-vote minivans were vandalized on Election Day? Or the crazy woman in PA who voted and then tampered with the machines creating longer lines? Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were kind of close. Why not ask for recounts there? Every vote counts? Vote early and vote often. Let's recount the whole thing. Stick the taxpayer with the bill. We're used to it.

I still don't understand what will happen if Gregoire is a few votes ahead in this 3rd count. Rossi won two counts, then her one. It seems to me he would still be the winner. I pray so!
