Rossi Wins Washington by 42 Votes

It seems (King5.Com is reporting) that Dino Rossi has won the Washington State Governor’s race by 42 votes. King County, where Gregoire gained 219 votes over the original count, was the last county to report in the recount, which began last week. Will there now be a second, hand recount? Forty two votes, after almost 3 million votes cast. Dino Rossi as Governor for at least 4 years. I say, get out the moisturizer and the eyeglasses and let the hand counting of paper ballots begin.

Maybe we’ll have a governor by Christmas.

    42 votes! Good Lord! At this point I think they should just arm wrestle for it … That would at least offer a few seconds of entertainment — and be a hell of a lot more interesting to bet on than the looming hand count.
