Q: Why go back and look at the Florida ballots? That election's over.
A: The state's 2000 presidential election was contested in litigation involving the Gore and Bush campaigns, and finally settled by a 5-4 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court. After the decision, some people still questioned whether the outcome was correct.

The Associated Press, CNN, The New York Times, The Palm Beach Post, The St. Petersburg Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, the Orlando Sentinel and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel have me confused with someone who gives a sh!t.
Get over it, people! George W. Bush won, and he is our President!

An un-punched chad is a valid vote to ABSTAIN.
A dimpled chad is a valid vote to ABSTAIN, with a slight indication of NAUSEA for the candidacy of Sore Losermann.

" The ballots were either undervotes on which voting machines were unable to detect a choice for president, or overvotes, which machines read as containing more than one choice."
Translation: Invalid ballots. User error. Non-votes.

5-4?? Wasn't it really 7-2, the two being Buzzy & Breyer??
I have a sinking feeling (see Matt Drudge's latest banner headline) that Gore would/should have won, all things considered. Flame away, but this is BIG news and it will be splashed all over the papers in a few hours.
Guess the President has just become the p-Resident.
Move along now, folks...

7-2 to overturn SCOFLA ruling (unconstitutional via equal protection clause).
5-4 to stop counting madness; Impossible to remedy within the time limits.
Media/left likes to use 5-4 for everything concerning ruling.

So, how does your crow taste now? Gore did not win. Period. You are not a Republican and we all know it. Drudge jumped the gun - he has also become quite liberal this year. He is no longer relevant.

You Gorons really need to get over it and move on. Gore made a valiant attempt to steal the election. He failed. Now get on with your life...all of this post-mortem whining is unhealthy.

Republicans were slightly more likely than Democrats to record marks for Bush, and Democrats were slightly more likely than Republicans to record marks for Gore.
Duh! Isn't this why the punch card was invented; to do away with personal bias?
