I can understand being highly sensitised to having your votes counted, but it seems as though those who are extremely angry about this need to get a little perspective. In the big picture, the crimes are not even remotely comparable. The Republicans have stolen elections with the help of power players in high places, while the Democrats attempted to create a solution to a problem they did not create, and did so in a way that seemed to be as fair as possible, given the circumstances and time frames.
Also, I think that whiny Democrats with no backbone to fight for what really matters should just become Republicans so they don't have to worry about it. There is nothing worse than working hard for a good cause with a group of people who do not fully believe that they are winners. Buck up, Florida Dems, we need you to have more self-esteem than that.
It doesn't have anything to do with the issues. It has everything to do with hurt egos and taking things personally. We should be able to get past it. We seem to have more tolerance for the Bushes of the world than we do for those actually working toward worthy goals. It shouldn't be so.
