News from Minnesota…
Al Franken won a round (I'd say the 11th round but it has to be something more akin to 3,000) in his quest to be seated as Minnesota's next senator. A Minnesota court ruled that upwards of 400 absentee ballots could be opened and counted next Tuesday. Franken currently holds a 225-vote lead. The number of ballots to be opened is down from the more than 4,000 originally demanded by the Coleman campaign and not all of the 400 may be counted as some may still be deemed ineligible once opened…
Ginsberg said they intend to appeal the unanimous decision by a panel of three judges — one of which was appointed by a Republican governor. "We fundamentally disagree with them and that's why there're appellate courts," Ginsberg said. "We're going to appeal."
Of course you're going to appeal. Of course you are.
Because this isn't really an election battle. It's the most boring, annoying and interminable piece of existentialist performance art ever produced.
Even worse than Stuart Saves His Family.
