It's recount time (again) in Florida

Well, what do you know. After seeing the slim defeat of the voucher referendum last night in the state senate, Republicans have tried a questionable parliamentary maneuver to schedule a reconsideration of the vote for later this week. This after a boisterous Democratic caucus meeting at which Senator Al Lawson (Tallahassee) chewed into his fellow Democrats for opposing vouchers. (Lawson voted for the placement of the referendum on the ballot.) (Tip on the reconsideration maneuver from Edspresso.)

The bad news is that this maneuvering makes the state look foolish again. The good news is that Katherine Harris isn't involved.
