Dirty Harry's blog "Stranded On Blue Islands" is going to be all over every aspect of the burgeoning Ohio recount. From the liberal loons to the media coverage.(Same thing really,)
Please boomark for updates and send tips and news. We'll have it all in one place.
Should be fun beating these RATS again in Ohio.

Here's the prompt. Let's get Couric wearing black after another CRUSHING defeat.
Recount? Do you mean Provisional Ballot Count?
The green and libertarian party's have banded together to raise the money for a recount. Most believe it is gonna happen.
The 88000 spoiled ballots will not be counted.
The 88,000 will be counted per Ohio Sec of State.
How can they count ballots that are already spoiled and rejected?
They will use 3 repubs and 3 dems to discern them but unlike FL they have set state wide rules: http://mytwocommoncents.blogspot.com/2004/11/today-in-ohio-thus-far.html#comments
and you know this how?
any recount would be easy to fix. Heck, if dem workers carried the boxes at all, they might already be fixed. The spoiled ballots might already be a bit more spoiled to vote for the "right" candidate. Any recount in a close election is gas for the fraud machine. They needed .25 % to get a recount. They got 2.5%. Now I know most rat operatives are misedumacated but that's ten times the threshold and it ain't gonna happen. This whole stream of Ohio mystery vote hope is just therapy for dems in denial. It's over. Get over it.
Do they by mean by counting spoiled ballots, i.e. determining the number of spoiled ballots or it is trying to determine "hanging chads"?
I do not like this at all.
How many votes did the Greenies and the Libbies get?
Ballots with 2 votes for President (overvotes) won't be counted. Ballots with no registered vote for President (undervotes) can be counted if the ballots meet the Ohio laws. No "dimpled" or "pregnant" chads in Ohio. I'm pretty sure the law is that the chad has to be detached at two corners.
In any event, the undervotes would probably break along the same lines as the counted votes.
This is no different than Florida 2000. Only in 2000, they were fighting over a 537 vote margin, not a 130k + vote margin.
Like Florida, a recount of all ballots, including the undervotes and overvotes, hanging chads, etc., won't result in a change of more than a few thousand votes in either direction.
I suspect that the Kool-Aid crowd may drop the entire idea if Kerry doesn't make up substantial ground after the provisionals and absentees are counted.
do not worry. There are 155,000 provisional and 88,000 discarded. Kerry would need to get 77% of those (assuming ALL are counted) to win. This does not even count absentee.
Called the SOS.
What recount? If there are any Dems out there that actually believe that there is a recount of ALL the votes in Ohio, then that proves my point that Democrats are, as a group, the most ill-informed of all Americans.
They have set rules for spoiled ballots. 2 disconnected corners is counted. 3 are spoiled. It's a state-wide standard.
This isn't a recount.
The have a set standard. 3 attached corners is a vote.
