Its certifiable.

If you have been living in a cave, or turned your T.V. off because you are sick of seeing bloated bodies floating in tsunami ravaged parts of Asia, you may have missed the fact that Congress has certified the November presidential election. Surprise, surprise, George W. Bush won the election. Well, not so suppressing was the immature behavior of Senator Babs Boxer from (we all know where) California, and Representative Stephanie Tubbs tried to contest the election. Using the baseless claims there were "voting irregularities" in Ohio, they tried to make a case that the election should not be certified. According to Rep. Tubbs,

How can we possibly tell millions of Americans who registered to vote, who came to the polls in record numbers, particularly our young people - the numbers were amazing - to simply get over it and move on?

Easy, you lost, get over it. Doesn't seem too difficult to me. I was disappointed with Bill Clinton won Re-election in 1996, but I didn't shed a tear, or loose sleep over it. And Sen. Boxer added

Why did voters in Ohio wait hours and hours and hours in the rain to vote? Why were voters at one precinct, for example, made to wait in line until nearly 4 a.m., four in the morning, to vote, because there were only two machines?

Shall I point out the above quote? There were so many first time voters, who didn't all break for Kerry, that many polling locations were just not prepared to handle all of them. The case Sen. Boxer is referring to happens to be a college town outside of Columbus where the students, traditionally an apathetic, non-voting population, turned out in large numbers. The democrats should look at this as successfully voter registration drive, not some kind of nefarious plan by Carl Rove to oppress the masses.

This kind of childish muck raking is what I expect from people like Boxer. What really smokes my shorts is the crap coming out of Ohio Represetative Marcie Kaptur's mouth. I am trying to track down the exact quote but to paraphrase my own representative, she shared the concerns of "hundreds of thousands" of Ohio residents regarding the voter irregularities. Hundreds of thousands? You would think that living in a very liberal part of Ohio, that maybe I would know people who are worried about these vote irregularities. However, the only people I hear talking about them are Sen. Boxer, Jesse Jackson and Rep. Kaptur (well and the moonbats over at the DU too, but they don't count).

These jack-asses need to drink a nice hot cup of STFU, calm down and find a real presidential candidate (not freakin Hillary either) for 2008.
