Is this smart?

The Republicans in Washington State are asking for a new gubernatorial election, which Christine Gregoire won by 129 votes, or .0044%.
"This is a case of election fraud," GOP attorney Dale Foreman said in his opening statement in the trial, which is being heard by a Superior Court judge without a jury. "This election was stolen from the legal voters of this state by a bizarre combination of illegal voters and bungling bureaucrats."
I'm not sure that the Republicans really want to put the idea that recent elections were stolen into people's heads.
