Apparently, the process for identifying these errors doesn’t occur until the official count takes place later this month. Which means there could be a bunch more errors out there that haven’t yet been noticed (though probably not)… the fat lady doesn’t officially sing until all the votes are officially tallied and certified. I’d love to see the look on Bush’s face if by some bizarre chain of events, the results are over-turned. -Thomas]
