DOUBLE DOG UPDATE: Here’s Al Franken with his adorable wife, Franny, talking about what’s ahead for him as the new senator from Minnesota.
Republican Norm Coleman concedes the election
Now – get the FUCK out, Norm! Ya fucking wanker.
7 months – 7 fucking months – the goddamned GOP thugs have strung this thing out.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race, paving the way for a resolution in the seven-month fight over the seat.
The high court rejected a legal challenge from Republican Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.
Your options are dwindling, Norm – because you have none.
Who’s left – oh yeah – “that punk Pawlenty” needs to certify the results. He’s been on The Rachel Maddow show saying he would. Let’s get it done, Timmy. (Yet another wanking ReThug.)
Oh! And while we’re at it – can Mark Sanford just RESIGN now. He’s in no position to be the governor of South Carolina any longer. He was derelict in his duties when he left the state without assigning duties to the Lt. Gov., and lied on top of it all. Ya know comparing yourself to King David from ‘The Bible’ – a book filled with myths and other fairy tales – doesn’t cut it, dude.
