Every Vote Counts: Virginia Edition

A recount in Virginia's 94th state house district now has Democrat Shelly Simonds winning by ... 1 vote. And if that result holds, it will be enough to push the state house of delegates into a 50-50 tie.

Yes, yes, this is an incredibly vivid demonstration of the "every vote counts" principle. But have you taken a moment to spare a thought for the Green Party voter who is really, really angry that he didn't successfully spoil the race and teach a lesson to those neoliberal sellouts who are exactly the same as Trump?

I'm sure he's devastated. Pour one out for the guy tonight, will you?
