The nice thing about living in the US is that we can have these cliffhanger election recounts (not that I'm following it THAT closely, mind you), and nobody even considers the possibility of arming a gang of thugs and going after the other candidate. No coups, no mid-election assassinations, no foul play. This is just your garden-variety Floridian stupidity (and if any of you are from Florida, and are fixin' to open a can o' Suncoast whupass on me, lemme say that I was born and raised in Florida, and know whereof I speak. Now let me fetch a can opener for you, since I doubt you remembered to bring your own.)
