I started to write this post in response to the headline I saw that said "Bush supports hybrids, flex-fuel cars: spokesman." I thought what you thought: someone crept into the White House a replaced George W. Bush with a pod person who actually supported trying to end our dependence on foreign oil. I was shocked and was ramping up the mockery.

Then I saw this article. I didn't realize there were still races ongoing, so I started skimming it. This is beautiful!

  • "In the Columbus, Ohio-area, elections officials are delaying the count of more than 9,000 provisional ballots by one day so it doesn't disrupt the much-vaulted Ohio State-Michigan football game on Nov. 18."

Much vaulted? I know that "vaunt" means "boast about or praise." Is it a "much-vaunted" game? For the descriptivists out there (L), "much vaulted" has 2,160 Google hits. "Much-vaunted" had over 600,000. Of course, the author could have meant "vaulted" and we can expect to see a bunch of this over the game. Oh, and do they count the ballots in the middle of the stadium at Ohio State? How will counting ballots disrupt the football game? How do they count votes in Ohio?

  • "Rep. Barbara Cubin, who threatened to slap her wheelchair-bound Libertarian opponent after a debate, is ahead by fewer than a thousand votes in her Wyoming contest."

Wow. What do you have to do to lose a Congressional election in Wyoming? Kill a man just for snoring?

  • "In Florida, a recount is set to begin Wednesday in Rep. Katherine Harris' former district. Republican Vern Buchanan has a 373-vote lead and has declared victory over Democrat Christine Jennings. The Associated Press has declared Buchanan the winner."

Well, if AP has already declared a winner, why are the jerking around with the voting?

Anyway, there are a couple of new shots on the fotoblog.
