Stevens Concedes; Democrats Score #58

November 20th, 2008

Convicted felon Ted “Series of Tubes” Stevens has, apparently, recognized that Begich’s victory is now inevitable, and has officially conceded the race. Which means, one can presume, that Stevens will not shell out the $15,000 for a recount–which means the drama is over and the election decided. And the Democrats chalk up one more vote in the Senate to help Obama get the job done come January.

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, as the official recount gets started, Al Franken scores a victory as a court gives him access to documentation of rejected absentee ballots, allowing his campaign to find ballots that might have been thrown out mistakenly and have them readmitted. With 18% of the recount done, Franken picked up about 40 votes, and now is behind by only 174.

    Good. Ted Stevens is an asshole and Alaska will benefit from his resignation. I wish the best to the democrat, who I hope is not a complete pussy.

    That said, Al Franken is a shitbag. That fact that the idiots in Minnesota voted for this sissified little pissant prove that the average American can not be too fn bright.
