Minnesota court rules in favor of Franken over Coleman in U.S. Senate race.

From Think Progress

After a recount that has gone on since the November election, a Minnesota court today ruled that Democrat Al Franken received more votes than Republican incumbent Norm Coleman in the state’s U.S. Senate race. Coleman has said that he plans to appeal the ruling to the state’s Supreme Court, which “could mean weeks more delay in seating Minnesota’s second senator. After a statewide recount and seven-week trial, Franken stands 312 votes ahead. Franken actually gained more votes from the election challenge than Coleman, the candidate who brought it.” Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) has said that although having just one senator is hurting the state’s residents, he supports Coleman’s appeals.

Have you heard Nacy Pelosi is bitchin about "She ws not informed about water boarding"And here it comes she actually incuraged it.As one democrat said "If she did not know about it then she was not paying attention"
Maybe the "Tea Party" will emerge to keep the government working for the people.I am pretty sure if there was another party the Dems and Repubs would not have a chance right now

Al Frankin becoming Govener is the most eciting thing going on in our governemnt.How about the Sec. of homeland securiy saying veterans coming back from Irao are a security risk as they would be likely canidates for recruitment by Al Queda.That would be intresting conversation and a worhty topic for The Mad Poet.
