Put down the Xbox controller. The man's name is Arlen Specter.

No, the campaign ended years ago. He's in the last third of his term.

Limbaugh or Hannity? Both?

Quick! Name one position that Al Franken has taken on any issue (without leaving this page or phoning a friend)?

Can't do it? Then wtf are you talking about?

Try "first". This was an automatic recount that was required by state law due to the extremely low margin between the two candidates.

Votes didn't mysteriously appear "out of nowhere". The purpose of a recount is to establish as precise a count as possible and diminish the margin of error which is inherent to any election. Both sides have presented challenges to some category of ballot or another. These challenges are decided by election officials and/or judges, therefore some ballots aren't "counted" until after a court has ruled on them, which can sometimes cause dramatic swings.

In other words, please consider knowing what you're talking about before going off half-cocked. Thanks in advance.
