    Sorry to tell you Phil, I wrote that line.

    After watching the VIEW a few times, Miss Joy didn't have much warmth in her heart for anyone who didn't live on her beloved island. Woody Allen didn't much care for fly over country either,
    but at least he was honest when he said in an interview that he thought New York was America; explains why he only goes to Europe, or every now and then Hollywood.

    The controversy was that some major news networks called Florida for Gore before the polls even closed which some believe prompted some potential Bush voters from wasting their time. However, once precincts were being counted it was looking like Bush was not only gaining votes but it looked like he would take the lead. After the votes were counted, Bush had won but by a very slim margin and IIRC that margin fell into the automatic recount area. A recount was done and not only did it show that Bush still won, but he gained voted. Gore then sued for another recount and Bush won that recount as well. Gore wanted another, however, he only wanted voted recounted in heavy Democratic districts. He also didn't want absentee ballots from our military to be counted. It was at this point that the Supreme Court stepped in and said that either all votes be recounted or the election be called complete with Bush the winner of the Florida electoral votes giving him the presidency. Gore chose to concede instead of furthering his suit. This is the cliffnotes version but you should read up on it more thoroughly elsewhere. The funny thing is that I read somewhere that with both candidates lawsuits, Gore's suit would essentially give Bush the win while it was said that if Bush's counter suit would have won, Gore would have won the election. All of that said, there wouldn't have been any controversy had Gore carried his home state of Tennessee.

    Well, NY is the home of the woman who couldn't understand how Nixon could have won because she didn't know anyone who voted for him even though Nixon won 49 states.

    That was essential and you're right. The left is strangely silent on that.

    Joy Behar: ĎIím still ticked off about the 2000 electioní
    I'm ticked off that such a glum, bitter person could call themselves "Joy." I'm ticked off that such a no talent hack named Joy Blowhard is given a platform to spew her stupidity.

    Tennesseans already knew what a complete imbecile Gore was and rejected him. Gore is a pathetic copy of his Socialist old man, a hypocrite of monumental proportions, and a lying pretender.

    Why FL voters didn't see that is a mystery to me. The only way it was close is all the idiot northern leftists that migrated to FL voted the same idiocy that they created in the states they fled.
