It does seem that as long as the Dems win, everything is A-OK, but if the GOP wins there must have been something really nasty and wrong going on... :shk:
Is this because of a difference in the way the parties handle victory and defeat?

Well, seeing as the exit polls said Gore and Kerry won, and the counting of votes said Gore won, and the fact Republicans have been caught rigging elections past three elections, I think that's why people think Republicans rig lections. Oh and don't forget the calls that happen every two years where republicans just happen to call blacks and tell them they will be arrested if they try to vote. Oh and the auto bot calls this time, oh and the ballots in 2000 just turning into air. Maybe they biodegraded really fast and only in heavy dem areas of Florida before they could be counted.
And especially this time if the Republicans won then it would be proof positive they can't win an election fairly. Unless you think millions of Americans are pedophiles and support Foley/Hasterts position on pedophiles in the Republican party.
"Today I've called and congratulated Jim Webb and his team," Allen said during a brief news conference in Arlington. He added that he would also "pledge my absolute full cooperation in the transition. . . . We will work together to make sure Jim Webb is up and running for the people of Virginia."
"The people of Virginia have spoken, they have spoken in a closely divided voice. We have two 49ers."
"I have the legal right to ask for a recount at the taxpayers' expense. I also realize a recount could drag on all the way to Christmas. . . . I do not wish to cause more rancor by protracted litigation that won't alter the results."
