Doin’ The Best We Can!

I already noted in the post below the comically unfolding story of Washington state GOP chair Luke Esser, who decided to stop counting the votes in the state GOP caucus with 13% of the votes still uncounted and has spent the last 24 hours coming up with increasingly ridiculous explanations of his actions.

TPM Reader NM just flagged this article in the Seattle Times which quotes Esser now saying that the state GOP is going to try to get as “close as we can to 100 percent” of the vote counted.

I mean, don’t knock yourself out, right?

I guess I’m not surprised that the GOP bigwigs are yawning over this. Huckabee’s just a speed bump they want to roll over and be done with. But I’m more than a little curious why the national political press hasn’t tuned in to this yet. This Esser fellow makes Boss Hogg look like a good government man.
