As it is, for me, as a Floridian, it boiled down to not putting future ideologue supreme court justices like Scalia in a position to potentially usurp a state's Supreme Court and steal the election. Two bad choices made a little easier by Tony Scalia and Clarence Long Dong Hill. Apparently, I wasn't as alone in that being the decision determination as I originallly surmised I might be.
    I don't know that I'd consider Scalia an ideologue unless it's on the grounds of sticking to the Constitution. Thomas, Ok. People like Stevens (yes, I know he's gone) and Ginsberg, definitely. Scalia is about the only one I do trust in that regard, although he definitely isn't perfect. Admittedly, my liking Scalia could be a holdover from my neocon days, but I never really bought into a lot of that either.

    Yes, we are still counting but what is new.
    Obama will take Florida eventually which makes me happy. But what really surprised me and made me happy is that the attempt by the Republicans to change our Florida constitution into a christian-right piece of toilet paper and the attempted erosion of checks and balances not only failed (not reaching the required 60%) but most not even getting a simple majority.

    And then the most divisive piece of crap politician (West) will hopefully be declared a loser soon.

    Floridians made a stand for against the Republican-Teaparty-Rightwing-Christian-Anti-American agenda.
    LOL at Florida still counting, they seem to be the only state in the Union with that problem. Maybe we should give Puerto Rico it's statehood and give Florida to Cuba! hahhaaaa.

    I am all for Florida becoming its own country.

    Anything north of Orlando I call southern Georgia or southern Alabama anyways.

    Math says Allen West lost his Florida congressional seat to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy. West begs to differ.

    The state released unofficial vote counts on Saturday showing Murphy up by 2,500 votes. The results are made official on November 20. Murphy declared his victory over West in a statement. West, unfortunately, isn't ready to give up the spotlight that congress brings. His campaign manager is raising questions over the votes in St. Lucie county, alleging that some votes were counted twice. They've even gone so far as to ask to review voter sign-in books to make sure the numbers of votes count.

    West is labeled as a "firebrand" Republican because he routinely says crazy things. Remember this is the same guy who thinks there are Communists in Congress and who stopped just short of challenging Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to a fight after she criticized him.

    Ladies and gentlemen, i present to you: Florida.

    I have no doubt that Allen West will soon chain himself to the radiator.

    In all fairness, this isn't unprecedented. It's how Al Franken became a senator.

    It is even more embarrassing for West as he moved into a district with statistically more registered Republicans.

    West is a jerk....he plays his Vet status yet does not tell people that he was discharged without honors.
