Of the actual votes cast GWB won in every version of the recount Gore wanted (and, amusingly, lost in every version of the recount the Bush side wanted). But there is no way that Pat Buchannen won 4x the votes he got anywhere else in the state in the one place that he should have received the least support. It's pretty clear people were confused, and it's pretty clear had there been no confusion Gore would have been in a position to be on top by a decent margin when all the legal challenges began.

Then again, the networks calling the state for Florida probably depressed Bush's vote totals in the pan-handle.

I was here and volunteered as a chad counter. I already know most of this.

But it is funny that the third-party candidate you'd think would have cost Bush the election actually ended up costing Gore the election (thanks to the idiots in PBC).
I didn't say it cost Bush the election. I was referring to it costing Gore. Funny how you didn't get that.

Ugh on the Ron Paul delegate BS. Let it go already. If supporters want to give him money then go right ahead, but stop believing he was ever in a position to do anything except cash checks.
You missed my point and skipped reading part of what I wrote. I already have let it go. I was just saying what some Paul supporters would do in the national election because of it as it relates to this topic—not necessarily myself. So you do not tell me what to let go or not or state what you think I've done about it in my mind. I'll determine that. I already said the RNC didn't need to do it because Mitt was going to win. But it was not BS. It's a fact. It happened and they're still trying the same antics. It speaks to their character in trying to bully others off of ballots.
