A mere EIGHT MONTHS after the election, it looks like MN will once again have 2 Senators [UPDATE]

'bout freakin' franken time, i say...!
Minn. court rules for Franken in Senate fight

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.

Justices said Franken is entitled to the election certificate he needs to assume office. With Franken and the usual backing of two independents, Democrats will have a big enough majority to overcome Republican filibusters.

i just came back from minnesota where i was visiting my daughter... it's bizarre enough to have viewed this debacle from the outside but it was ever so much more bizarre to actually be there, talk to folks, and watch them just shake their heads... thank god, it's almost over...


coleman, the quintessential prick, concedes...
Outside his St. Paul home, the incumbent, Norm Coleman, a Republican who had held the seat for one term, conceded the election to Mr. Franken, bringing an end to a lengthy battle that had resulted in thousands of pages of legal documents, cost tens of thousands of dollars, and had left many ordinary Minnesotans weary.

what a maroon... coleman's going to go down in history as a complete and total ass, finally humiliated into the loss he should have accepted as a fact months ago...
