Calling for a recount is nothing new in American politics. As John Adams said, Facts are stubborn things, so the only way to change them is to challenge them in the Supreme Court. Or, something like that. Like the Longs and the many pols with good-old-boy nicknames before him, Buddy Caldwell is challenging Washington's ways. The state Attorney General is taking the bureaucrats back to the playground, and questioning their ability to count. Caldwell filed suit with the U.S. Supreme Court that claims the 2010 U.S. Census count is wrong.
