The Real Presidential Race In Harris County

>The final, though unofficial, Harris County election results were just released by County Clerk Beverly Kaufman.

We finally have an answer to the burning question: Who received more votes here, the Madisonian-Federalist Party led by a Blinn College professor, or the Heartquake Party, which promised a "massive cultural transformation triggered by a reawakening of hearts"?

The answer -- it's a tie!!!

A dozen voters each supported the two tickets. It was a nail-biter -- the Madisonian-Federalist Party led 7-4 through early and absentee voting, but was outswarmed by a Heartquake landslide 8-5 on Election Day.

You may scoff at 12 votes out of 1.2 million cast, but you know who looks on with envy?

Brian Moore of the Socialist Party. He pulled in only eight votes.

We're guessing a lot of Socialists listened to talk radio and voted for Obama.
