how many fingers am I holding up?

The Associated Press ran a piece yesterday pointing out that the GOP's primary vote counter in the US House of Representatives - Missouri Republican Roy Blunt - miscounted votes in his own failed attempt to win his Party's Majority Leader's post vacated by Tom DeLay. Blunt, just hours before losing the final vote to Ohio Republican John Boehner, had bragged to media that he had locked up enough votes to win.
Is it any wonder the Republican controlled Congress seems to have loss count on the runaway spending of our tax dollars?
