The Wall Street Journal weighs in, and leaves a steaming turd on the carpet. 538 rips them a new orifice. As does one of the recount judges.
Now let's all watch as Canada's retarded wankers quote the WSJ but find it too much of an intellectual exercise to go any further than that.
AND THE RULES, THEY ARE A CHAAAAAANGIN': You'll love this bit (emphasis towel-snappingly added):
The Coleman campaign's complaint shows that they intend to fight on: ... to contest the inclusion of those 930 absentee ballots that were counted this past weekend -- which their own campaign agreed to have counted under a careful bargain.
That's right -- having agreed to count 930 absentee ballots as part of a larger negotiation, Coleman's campaign now wants to make excluding those ballots part of the legal action. Even that paragon of journalistic objectivity, Fox News, understood that the Coleman campaign originally agreed to count those ballots:
Franken's lead now stands at 225 votes after gaining 176 votes more than Coleman in Saturday's review of the formerly sealed absentee ballots. Franken started the day with a 49-vote advantage.
The 933 absentee ballots were among those rejected by poll workers but later found to be excluded in error. The campaigns eventually agreed they should be added to the recount.
Seriously, it just doesn't get any funnier, does it?
