AAAAGH! This headline has to be the worst pun I've seen in weeks! I won't repeat it; get it from the source. He's entitled to the hits.

Same pun was over here a couple days before, actually. And also: Erectoral College. All pretty offensive -- and stupid -- so be warned.

See also here -- unusually lowbrow for the highfalutin' Slate.

The content of the article deserves some attention, as well. As predicted elsewhere (I dunno where: too much data coming in too fast...) the drums are already beating for Gore to step down with grace for the good of the nation, when in fact, this is by no means a done deal. What the right is asking for is a Gimme Victory in which rule, law, justice and sense are discarded.

Until we see the final returns of the recount, until the court cases are settled and until the electoral college actually meets, this election is not over, and no candidate should concede. The voting is not and was never the end of any previous election; why should it be for this one?

... and last night Jay Leno used it, which was in the promos, so everybody's heard it ...
