    Wait a minute. I see your point. If someone writes in "Lisa Mercowsky" it should not count. It is clearly not her. [/sarcasm]

    There is clearly nothing to divine here. Sheesh!!

    The signs of a flawed election system is when courts of law have to decide the outcome.. pathetic.

    1) If it weren't close, there would be no need.

    I still think there was voter fraud somewhere there.

    That aside, I think Miller is being a Dickhead. I saw some ballots they were complaining about. They were obviously intended to be votes for Murcowsky or is that Merkowski, Murkowsky?
    Anyway, I was really upset with spoiled brat, sore loser Lisa Murkowski when she decided to run as a write in. There was a chance the Dem would win just because she felt she was entitled to that seat.
    However, now it looks like whoever wins, I'm not going to like them.

    Just shows that despite his attempts to paint himself as something different.....he is nothing more than just another typical politician.

    Proving what many have suspected for quite sometime. Many politicians think they are "entitled" to their seats.

    Well, it looks like there's a good chance the voters who own the seat made her entitled to it this time around.

    Both untrue and lame as hell.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I see that you left off the relevant part of my post, and that is dishonest as hell.

    Ladies and gentlemen of DP - Here is the entirety of my post, which the Prof so dishonestly edited, when he responded:

    The part in red is what the Prof cut out of my quote, and his edit of my post changes completely the meaning of what I posted. That is just damn dishonest.

    Prof - You sure that you aren't Stinger? He used to edit posts too, to make them look different than what the poster intended. He tried that crap with me too, and I caught him with his pants down, just like I caught you now.
