    What the hell is he waiting for? He lost. Franken won. End of story. Party leader rush limbaugh is encouraging him to stay on, so, like all Republicans, he's in lockstep. But he's making a complete fool of himself. Happy Passover, Norm!

    I think Franken's celebrating Passover, too. The point of that?

    If dems did this though, the repubs would be taking about how obstructionist dems were and how they'd be thwarting the will of "the people".

    Typical Republican obstruction, it isn't about him not being seated, he is making sure Franken doesn't get seated anytime soon.

    You're right though, he should be ashamed. His political career is over.

    The GOP want to drag this on as long as they can because without Franken, we might not be able to pass healthcare reform among other things.

    Of course, there is the possibility that if all the votes are accounted for and actually counted, Coleman may still prove to be the winner. If the situation were reversed, you libs would be crying how every vote should be counted, so STFU and let the state of Minnesota figure it out.

    The State of Minnesota DID figure it out. Coleman's done. They've already been through the highest court in Minnesota. The only reason the repubs are pursuing this is they think it will take years for it to go through the fed system.

    I stand by what I said originally.

    if they havent counted, recounted and counted again all the votes properly what does that say about the elections board of Minnesota!? they have a clear winner so let the man have his seat. I simply dont buy into any bs that votes STILL need to be counted..SHEESH!:lol:

    SARCASM ALERT!!

    All you cry baby libs want to take Norm Coleman's right to defend his seat away. What happend to equality under the law? Right happened to liberty from oppressive be it government or, in this case, the state of Minnesota and its people?

    Goldberg is right!! The ever growing danger of Liberal fascism must be destroyed!! Yet, the lib mind is too narrow. The Libs perception is too squished! All you can see is how it will benefit SOCIALIZED HEALTHCARE and not how Senator Coleman's right as an US Citizen is being checked

    I really hope that you libs come to the light of Reason and drop your selfish left wing propaganda. You Libs--SOB--is the Reason--WEEP WEEP--this great nation of ours---SOBBING SOB--is going off a cliff!!----WAHHHHHHHHHHH!
