Oh that man is so dense he will probably still try to show up to his job in January after he has been replaced.

It didn't turn out so well for Ron Coleman when he tried the same thing in 2008. The margin of victory was well above recount requirements.
It's up to West. He can either fade away for good like Coleman did after the court slaps him down, or he can drop some of his extremism and try to be an electable candidate next time.
But I kicked $25 to Patrick Murphy's defense fund last night. I believe it's not right to saddle the winner with legal bills after a win that was fair and square. I would have sent West that money if Murphy did the hanky-panky; this crap just ain't right when it happens on either side.

I am not surprised that he is doing this. After he gets the slap down I would almost bet that he will continue.

Weren't Allen West and Mia Love leading in all the polls?

That means conservatives told pollsters they were going to vote for them, but when they were in the privacy of the polling booth, they sat on their hands and refused to vote for either one, even though they voted for Romney

I wonder why? What do Allen West and Mia Love have in common, that conservatives didn't vote for them?

The twittersphere is buzzing with the news that Allen West's recount was denied by a FL judge.
