Rumors of the Fat Lady Singing Have Been Greatly Exaggerated.

Apparently, even though this has been going on for a week, the mainstream media aren't touching it -- even in Ohio.

Recount in Ohio A Sure Thing
A demand for a recount in Ohio can only be filed by a presidential candidate who was either a certified write-in candidate or on the ballot in that state. Both Green Party candidate David Cobb and Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik will be demanding a recount. No other candidate has stated an intention to seek a recount and no other citizen or organization would have legal standing to do so in Ohio. The Cobb-LaMarche campaign is still exploring the possibility of seeking recounts in other states but no decision has been made yet.

Funny how the "irregularities" and "glitches" only favored Bush... including Bush wins in heavily-Democratic counties, Bush getting more votes than there are registered voters in some precincts, a high frequency of "spoiled" punch-card ballots in traditionally-Democratic communities, entire precints' worth of ballots getting shoveled into pick-ups with Bush-Cheney stickers on them...

If Kerry comes out ahead after all is said and done, I wonder if the Republicans will start whining, "Kerry conceded! No take-backs! You're trying to steal the election!!"
