election lost on a technicality

Godwin's Law

"As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."
John McCain, on the LA Times's refusal to release (per its promise to its source) a tape of Obama at a fellow professor's going away party from Chicago:
"I'm not in the business of talking about media bias but what if there was a tape with John McCain with a neo-Nazi outfit being held by some media outlet?"
According to internet tradition the first person to make such a comparison loses.

Can this election please just be over already?

That's ... a rather brilliant observation. "This election cycle Godwinned; everyone please go home." I <3 it.
