Horton Finds, Who?...


Gregoire's the Winner! In Washington, the Democrats have declared their candidate 'the winner' in the 2004 Governor's race. After two previous unsatisfactory election results, showing Republican Candidate, Dino Rossi, first winning by 261 votes and again by 42 votes, a third review seems to have yielded the votes that count. Out of 2.9 million votes cast, the close results should demonstrate that every individual voice does have profound significance in that less than a tenth of a percent can decide an election. In short, every vote cast in a legitimate manner does indeed count... or does it?

Komo news reports:

OLYMPIA - The head of the state Democratic Party said late Tuesday that recount results from King County give Democrat Christine Gregoire an eight-vote victory in the closest governor's race in state history.

"We're confident Christine Gregoire has been elected the governor of the state of Washington," Democratic Chairman Paul Berendt said. "I believe Dino Rossi should concede."

As Democrats have adapted their sensibilities to adopt a more chaotic view of free elections, a new mantra has arisen from the Left urging that 'every vote count.' Considering the fact that Democrats only investigate elections on this basis when the results - close as they may be - are not favorable to their preferences, which votes do they mean? Dispensing with the rhetorical absurdities, we can see the truth of their dogma exorcised in public in the State of Washington where an election result, counted and recounted in a manner that has yielded Democrat victory there for decades, is suddenly unsatisfactory to the losing party. In a desperate attempt to cheat reality, they measure the fractal edge of the preferential wrinkle with an ever larger hand lens until the results conform to their perceptions. The moment it does... victory! That is the wrinkle that counts!

Four years after the fiasco of Florida, the truth is all too clear. The only vote that counts as far as Democrats are concerned, is the one that puts them over the top. Dare we brandish them again, with the moniker of hypocrit? Like a tree falling in the forest, if they don't care does it matter? Ethics and integrity be damned to a party obsessed with power... and horrified by the loss of it. Truer scoundrels have scant been observed in any era of American politics; and there have been both pitiful and plenty. In another perverse twist of semantics (from the experts in epistemoligical burlesque), somehow now 8 blue votes 'count' more than 261 previous red votes. And with that favorable pass, Democrats claim decisive victory. Like Horton picking clover to find the tiny voices left lonely and unrecognized on a speck of dust in the prairie of ballots, Washington Democrats spent the last month on their knees culling the fields of King County squeals for the one 'Yop' that will be heard by a kangaroo press...

... thus certifying their official 'Who!'

UPDATE: 12.22.04:14:01
AP is reporting:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Washington state's Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that hundreds of belatedly discovered ballots from Seattle's King County should be counted in the extraordinarily close governor's race — potentially enough to tip the balance in favor of Democrat Christine Gregoire.
And the Roo in their pouch said, "Me too!" And they boiled the rest of Whoville's voters, and the Elephant in Beezlenut oil afterall.
