Sore Loser

Well, Obama won the election fair and square, and won the popular vote as well.

Of course, there are always some who can't handle the idea that free and fair elections mean your guy doesn't always win. Like unindicted war criminal Allen West, who received his ass in a sack down in the Florida 18th. Even though the margin of victory was beyond that which would normally trigger a recount, and despite all question marks over balloting having been ironed out within a few days, Mr West is still whining and trying to steal back in the courts what he lost at the polls.

UPDATE: West was unsuccessful in the court, but has somehow got his recount anyway. I like the way he accuses Patrick Murphy of "pretending to be a Congressman": what else has West been doing for the past two years?

We can only hope that the most malodorous neofascist in the entire Tea Party hasn't found a way to circumvent both the polls and the US courts and reinsert himself into Congress.
