Two recounts?

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports this AP story: Recount begins _ and there may be two. Apparently both the Ds and Rs are saying, if they don't like the outcome of the machine recount they will ask for a hand recount.

For those of you who are wondering, a hand recount will cost $700,000. The governor's job pays $142,286 per year. Thus, it may cost more to figure out who is Governor and it would be to have a Governor. I say let's just call it a draw and leave the office vacant for 4 years.
