Write Your Own Punchline 

As you know, Rep. John Boehner has gotten himself elected to replace Tom DeLay (R - Indicted) as House majority leader - but not before the Republicans had themselves a little "Florida moment":
This is actually kinda funny. Rich Lowry just filed this little squib at the Corner. "More ballots cast [on the House leadership vote] than there are members. Re-voting now...."

Roll Call has it too: "House Republicans are taking a mulligan on the first ballot for Majority Leader. The first count showed more votes cast than Republicans present at the Conference meeting."

They just can't help themselves...
