The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The War of 1812 is over, too

Al Gore just can't get it through his head that he lost.

But being the inventive type that he is — after all, he strung up with his bare hands that very first T1 line between MIT and the Pentagon back in '69 — it was inevitable that Gore would resurface with a new, more efficient way to count votes.

And it was also inevitable that the plans for the system would be leaked, and Marc Lundberg, proprietor of Quit That, has the details. I have to admit, it's disarming in its simplicity.

Holy cow -- unfreakinbelievable. As low as my opinion of Gore is, I continue to be amazed at how he keeps trying to win the election...how can someone be so oblivious to the fact that the HORSE IS DEAD...?

Well, there's one more piece of evidence in his favor: the Democrats lost seats in Congress in an off-year election, which is generally what happens when there's a Democratic President. (One editorial cartoonist gleefully pointed this out; I can't remember who it was, but it struck me at the time as freaking hilarious.)
