Ohio update

(Sigh)...these people have no shame.

Ohio is going to be certified today. Bush's official margin of victory in Ohio is about 119,000. So Dems do what they do best...sue.

They want to contest the results, though they say out of the other side of their mouth that they're not trying to do that. From the USA Today article:

Cliff Arnebeck, a Columbus lawyer working for the Massachusetts-based Alliance for Democracy, says overturning the result is not the objective: “We should verify the accuracy of the vote and the process by which the vote was achieved.”

Oh, so that's all! And since there's zero chance of overturning the result, here I was, cynically thinking it was nothing more than a naked attempt to cast doubts on the legitimacy of Ohio's election (and, more importantly, Bush's re-election). How silly of me to deduce that!
