If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to this election being over. If you’re pundit and former Bush 43 speechwriter/press hack Ari Fleischer, you want this thing to last forever, hence this tweet earlier today:
Prediction Time:1) The election won’t end Tuesday night. 7 states will b decided by 1 pt or less. (VA, OH, CO, IA, PA, WI, NH)

Seven states in recount? Chaos for weeks, if not months…and of course plenty of TV appearances for pundits like Fleischer (despite the irreparable harm it would do to our voting process, not to mention the American psyche.) Then again, that’s the point, isn’t it? Only our pundit class would be able to navigate America through these rocky shoals, and they could shape the nation for years to come as a result.
So yeah, Ari Fleischer wants recount chaos. It directly benefits him, not to mention 5 of those 7 states have GOP governors. Me, that sounds like a nightmare scenario followed by the Supremes handing the election to the Republicans again.
Self-service in every sense of the word.
