Concession stand

One of the more refreshing aspects of the recent elections was the lack of "I lost, so let's recount!" whiners. That has practically become a mating call for Democrats over the last six years. Now that it's the Republicans taking one on the chin - silence. Immediate concessions. The gnashing of nothing. George Allen, in particular, deserves some credit for not dragging things out.

Oh, but wait. There are some screams coming from - where else? - Florida. And you won't believe this guy's reasoning:

"In this election, the results did not match the Zogby pre-election poll, out internal VoteNow2006.net polling, or our exit polling," said wannabe representative Clint Curtis.

The results weren't buddy-buddy with his freaking poll numbers, so he refuses to concede.

And no. He's not a Republican.
