Remember how the Republicans rather pompously
declared a 5 `o' clock deadline the Wednesday or
Thursday after the election as the final word, and
then, as the deadline approached, suddenly pushed it
back a day? I just read on Salon's Table talk page

whence seven Republican counties conducted voluntary
hand recounts to get Bush another 400 votes. Is there
any truth to this rumor? (not as sexy as other Rumors,
but still pretty juicy)
