You know, sometimes I like to think I’m more jaded than I really am. When this whole recount thing started in Florida, I thought, “Well, they have all the ballots, just recount the votes as accurately as possible and declare a winner.” I honestly didn’t imagine that what this really comes down to is who has the most political power to bring to bear in Florida. Ultimately, this election will be won by the party that manages to best manipulate the Florida statutes to their advantage, not by the candidate that got the most votes. Yeah, our vote counts, but not if the outcome is in dispute.
