Carpet Bagger and Tea Partier Extraordinaire Representative Allen West (R -FLA) was soundly beaten in his race to remain in the US House of Representatives in his newly chosen district…except he isn’t accepting defeat.
Although well outside the margin of error that would suggest a recount was in order, Rep. West is going to demand a recount and possibly pursue his loss in court. How could he have possibly lost? Considering he’s lost nearly every screw he was born with, I can’t imagine how he could have possibly ever been elected in the first place or why anyone would support him for re-election. But, it is after all Florida!
Even though the polls are closed, the ballots are counted, and the margin of victory for Patrick Murphy is outside any legal reason to require a recount, Allen West is demanding a recount.
Specifically, West and his campaign are demanding a recount in St. Lucie County. They’re also claiming that the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Office was complete chaos last night. Oh and that they’re incompetent. Because, of course they are.
And if you don’t find that amusing enough, here’s a piece on the heavy emotional toll that Mr. Romney’s loss is taking on the Palm Beach GOP chair Sid Dinerstein!
“Something has happened in the country,” Sid said. “It’s not our country — citizens are now consumers. It’s a big shopping mall, a paradigm change. The game is: ‘How do they get our money?’”
Sid called last night’s election the dead end of “a 95-year path” that began with the Wilson administration and the creation of the progressive income tax and the Federal Reserve. “Tonight was America’s last chance to embrace exceptionalism,” he said. “America had a choice, and we voted to be poor.”
You will never hear surf music again!
