It's the TALLY that counts

Uh, can there truly be someone so dumb that they would actually publish this:
That's how Christine Gregoire became governor after the third counting, and that's where matters should have rested. All elections are imperfect. The winner is the person for whom the most votes are counted—not cast. The goal of beleaguered elections officials is to try to get the votes cast to match the votes counted, but when the difference is greater than the margin of victory, it's the tally that matters.
Oh no, he di'n't!
