If I keep saying it wrong, maybe they'll believe it

That seems to be the Oregonian's thought pattern on the 2004 Washington governor's race. From an editorial in the paper about today's state primary election (emphasis mine):
Christine Gregoire will win a spot on the November ballot with ease, and so will Republican challenger Dino Rossi, whom she beat four years ago by a razor-thin margin that led to a series of controversial recounts.
The only trouble with that statement is that Dino Rossi won the initial ballot count. And the recount. It wasn't until King County somehow found more than 700 uncounted ballots that Christine Gregoire won by 129 votes.

    But the rule is now in place:

    Count until you get the result wanted.

    Score one for sustainability.
