Is that all there is?

Yes, I know it is an extremely Republican district and this guy had no chance, but is this really the best we can do?

Democrats celebrate narrow U.S. House loss in Ohio
Wed Aug 3, 2005 2:26 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats on Wednesday celebrated a closer-than-expected loss in a special House of Representatives race in Ohio and called it a warning sign for Republicans entering the 2006 congressional elections.

But Republicans cautioned against reading too much into Jean Schmidt's narrow win over Democrat and Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett, saying low turnout and local issues made the race unique and kept it from being a bellwether on Republican leadership or President Bush.

Is there any chance that at some point in this century we might celebrate a narrow victory?

good point. might even complain about the election results. humidity my ass.

now of course i don't know, but over all i think there is HUGE problem with republican election supervisors controlling the vote counting. especially since all these neck in neck races finally fall to the republican.
