Two Wrongs Make a Right, Lisa

Bart: Somebody ought to ruin Gabbo's career the way he ruined Krusty's.
Lisa: Two wrongs don't make a right, Bart.
Bart: Yes they do.
Lisa: No they don't.
Bart: Yes they do!
Lisa: No they don't!
Bart: Yes they do!!
Lisa: Daaaad!
Homer: Two wrongs make a right, Lisa.
-- ``Krusty Gets Kancelled''
It was with a wry smile that I sat watching Senator Schumer lecturing now outgoing Senator Allen about being a "gentleman" and conceding the election without forcing a recount. Apparently Allen got the message because he finally threw in the towel, and the Democrats did the near impossible by retaking the Senate.

I couldn't help but think back to Florida 2000 and Ohio 2004 where the Republicans got all in a snit and accused Gore and Kerry of being spoiled sports for taking a close look at whether or not they may have actually won the election. So now they got their comeuppance.

Not that it matters now, but I would not have begrudged Senator Allen a shot at the recount. Here in Washington we went through 2 recounts before we got Governor Gregoire, and somehow we survived.

Anyway, good riddance to you Senator Allen. Perhaps you now have more time for your confederate flag and noose obsession.
