That was the title of an old SNL sketch featuring Bill Murray, Jane Curtin, and the late great John Belushi. But now we have a new Thing That Wouldn't Leave, and it looks like it'll be hanging around for the duration, according to its campaign manager, Tim Edson:
This race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance. There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district.Somehow, I'm thinking a guy like this is going to make Norm Coleman seem relatively genteel:
Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County. We will continue to fight to ensure every vote is counted properly and fairly, and accordingly will pursue all legal means necessary.”
Hope you didn't eat all your popcorn last night, people, because there's still one more sideshow that hasn't dropped the curtain.
