Everybody made fun of Mitt Romney for saying there was one presidential candidate who would receive 47 percent of the vote no matter how bad a politician he was, simply because his supporters wanted a bunch of free stuff.
Well, it turns out he was right…
When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.
Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47.
I think somebody should go back and measure those trees in Michigan. I suspect you'll find they were the right height all along. And then wouldn't you feel dumb?
