And the winner is ... 

If we've learned anything from the ongoing Al Franken-Norm Coleman quagmire recount, there's almost an endless amount of lawyering and maneuvering that can be done to delay the final outcome of an election.

So with that in mind, it may be years before we know the winner of the special election for Senator Gillibrand's old Congressional seat in upstate New York.

At last count, the Democrat had a 13 vote lead over the Republican, with 6,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted.

Thing thing is going to have more recounts and lawsuits than Joan Rivers has had facelifts.  The candidates might as well start campaigning for 2010 because it won't be resolved before then.

Stigy's piece told me nothing new. The idea of "ersatz" capitalism -- privitizing of gains and socializing of losses -- was being kicked around just days after Lehman fell. Stig-man added nothing new to the dialogue.
