I'm sure that we'll get the full and accurate story once Gonzales has Logan tortured.

Okay, now, I'm going to ask two and only two questions:

1) WHAT DO YOU STAND TO LOSE BY A RE-VOTE?

2) WHAT DO YOU STAND TO LOSE BY A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION?

Answer those directly, and I'll be more civil. Okay?

Dearest Josef, my answer to your questions would be:
1. Nothing to lose as a revote is an impossibility by law and the Judges ruling.
2. Nothing to lose if the federal investigation was done by a bipartisan pannel, and they did the same thing in every major ciy/state in the union. But then, I am sure you would be unhappy with the huge waste of tax payers monies....that are better spent on an immoral war in Iraq

#1. You did NOT answer that question. Let's say a re-vote happened, then what?!?

#2. I wonder why your answer... but I do support also investigating the chief electoral officer, a Republican named Sam Reed!

Josef, I don't stand to lose a thing.

Hmmm... Very scary indeed. i think that I might even agree with the Windows 3.x expert on this one. Logan's getting the shaft. However, he probably should have seen this coming, considering the scrutiny that this election was receiving. He needs good people that he can trust and delegate to do a thorough, comprehensive review. That obviously didn't happen. A good leader needs to be proactive, not reactive.

Hey, BTW, how can somebody that works for the government blog all day? Is that really ethical? Just curious. I would feel very guilty if I did that.

Torrid

zapporo, I don't know the answer to your questions. Not sure what you've heard; doesn't sound accurate.

Josef

Okay, Torrid. Then please support a re-vote so that the people's will can ACTUALLY be determined, so that the elections system will be forced to correct itself and so that whatever comes from that can be accepted by ALL of Washington State.

Thanks for your brevity and honesty, Torrid. Thank you very much.

Josef--I can't support a revote, because there's nothing in evidence to support one...and more importantly, there's no provision in Washington state law to allow one. The people's will is nowhere near clear, for another thing. Finally, the elections system needn't be "forced" to correct itself; it is already correcting itself with the introduction of a statewide registration database, and things like moving up the primary.
