Ohio vote official

Ken Blackwell, Ohio’s Secretary of State, has certified the vote in Ohio. The winner Monday based on official results from county election boards, with the final tally of 2.86 million votes for the Republican, or about 51 percent of the vote, and 2.74 million or 49 percent for Democrat John Kerry. Of course (unfortunately), some are still demanding a recount and Jesse Jackson is still hyperventilating.

I’m all for the American process of voting. I exercise my right to vote as often as legally possible. But the way to address "issues" or "irregularities" in voting patterns is not to ask for a recount (which costs cash-strapped counties a lot of time and money and results in a lot of eye-rolling) but request the board of elections of each county follow-up on problems within their own counties. I talked to a woman in my county on her way to make sure there were no hanging chads (she was babysitting my daughter so I could run out and vote) on the paper ballots. What a hassle but bless her! she did her patriotic duty when called upon. Can we move on please? Count done, certified and in the history books. Get over it.
