1 + 1 = 20?

One Plus One Equals 20 Extra Votes For Franken

It's bad enough that the Republican Party can't prevent Democrats from voting in its primaries and saddling us with The New York Times' favorite Republican as our presidential nominee. If the Republican Party can't protect an election won by the incumbent U.S. senator in Minnesota, there is no point in donating to the Republican Party.
The day after the November election, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman had won his re-election to the U.S. Senate, beating challenger Al Franken by 725 votes.
Then one heavily Democratic town miraculously discovered 100 missing ballots. And, in another marvel, they were all for Al Franken! It was like a completely evil version of a Christmas miracle.

I for one have not hidden from the fact that I am scared to death of what a democrat controlled federal government is going to do to this country. But I have to say I do not find myself upset that John McCain is not President. Why is it that I feel this way?

Well, for starters, John McCain did not and does not represent the conservative values I hold dear.
