After a failed bid to delay the Jan. 20th inauguration, President-elect Barack Obama's transitional team has raised questions about the validity of the Nov. 4th election results, and has demanded a recount in several key states.
"It appears there may have been some irregularities in the vote counting in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and several others." said Tony Alvaro, an Obama team spokesman. "In going over the results, it seems that John McCain may have, in fact, won the election."
An economic crisis of historical proportions as well as renewed tensions in the Middle East has led some to suggest that changing leadership now might be counterproductive. However President Bush has made it clear that his term as President is over, and he is moving on.
"Listen, there were two guys running for the job, John McCain and Barack Obama." said Bush. "One of them won the election. I know I didn't win, I wasn't even running. So they can hash it out between them. I really don't care who takes it come January 20th, but somebody is gonna take it. I would have preferred McCain obviously, but Obama won it, and that's that."
A spokesman for McCain was adamant. "We lost this one. No doubt about it. They can recount those votes all they want but no matter how you add them up, Obama was the clear winner."
An obviously exhausted Bush went on to say, "Listen, I don't care if Mickey Mouse comes up that driveway in a moving van on January 20th, but someone sure as hell better. God!"
