Here we go again

The presidential elections came and went with very little controversy. I wish the same could be said about the Puerto Rico Gubernatorial elections.
The margin of victory was so small (about as small as Kerry's grasp on reality) that now they are trying to get a recount going on here.
Now, I may be a little paranoid, but maybe they sent all the Palm Beachers that screwed up the 2000 Presidential elections here to PR so that the 2004 Presidential elections would go off without a hitch. I don't know, I'm just assuming.
Anyways, now both political parties (used to be three, but the Independence party got so few votes, the Elections Committee revoked their status hehe) are bickering on when the recount should take place, if at all. Should all the remaining votes be counted before the recount begins or should the recount be simultaneous with the counting of the remaining votes (as it states in the LAW).
So it seems we will not know who is governor of PR until late December, yet this isn't stopping the Popular Democratic Party (morons) from going ahead and moving into the governor's Mansion. The New Progressive Party (statehooders) have not yet given a concession speech, still awaiting the final tally of the votes and the recount.
No matter what happens, at least something good came out of this: A few weeks without an independence party. What idiots.
