Franken Has Won

Court Rules Franken Has Won Senate Seat - The Caucus Blog -

“The Minnesota Supreme Court has just issued its long-awaited judgment in the Senate race, declaring that Democrat Al Franken is the winner.

The 32-page unanimous decision by the state’s highest court was released after a seven-months long battle over the seat formerly held by Norm Coleman. On every ground, the judicial panel rejected Mr. Coleman’s claims of trial errors or constitutional violations, and decided that Mr. Franken’s election should be certified by the state as valid.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty had indicated as late as Monday that he was willing to certify Mr. Franken as the winner once the state’s highest court decided the recount and Mr. Coleman’s battle. On CNN on Sunday, Mr. Pawlenty said: “I’m prepared to sign it as soon as they give the green light.””

Update: Coleman concedes



In case he ever trys to run again...

I hope the people of Minnesota remember that Coleman's refusal to concede earlier, even though it was clear then that he had lost, cost them millions of dollars and months of representation.

Long overdue. Let's see if the Dems can use this one for positive effect. Should we hold our breath?

I love all articles coming out in which the authors fret about whether Al Franken will be a sufficiently "serious" senator. James Inhofe thinks that global warming is hoax perpetrated by the Weather Channel, several of the GOP senators think creationism is just peachy, and their worried about Franken. Is Franken too "Hollywood?", they ask. Nevermind that Franken has 20 IQ points on Mr. Hollywood, Ronald Reagan – conservative's favorite president.

...and they're worried...


I personally would love to see politics overrun by self-hating Jewish and Catholic comedians.
