• Al Franken Comes Closer to Winning Election He Won

    Update: According to what I can make out from the television by my desk which is showing MSNBC on mute, Norm Coleman is finally accepting reality. More on this exciting news as I feel like bothering to write up a new post!

    Remember there was a Senate race in Minnesota way back when Mark Sanford was opposed to infidelity and Democrats still liked Barack Obama?

    No? Well, trust me. There was. And here's some news about it

    The Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state's long-running Senate race.

    The high court rejected a legal challenge from Republican Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.

    Yep. Norm Coleman — the guy who lost that election those eleventy billion months ago — sure is running out of options for ways to try to convince people somehow that he won.

    So, he shouldn't be able to hold off the inevitable for all that much longer now, and Franken's wait for finally claiming his seat shouldn't be any longer than another two, three years tops.
