    Democrats wave Franken as trophy over limping GOP - Yahoo! News

    No commentary is necessary really. But the title really is belly-laugh worthy.

    I mean Franken? WHat is pathetic is that the GOP couldn't field anyone capable of beating Al Franken. That is comedy right there. But that doesn't prop up Franken, that shows how really bad the GOP is.

    I mean it's freaking Al Franken. :LOL:

    What a prize you got there, libs. :lol:

    Uh...Norm Coleman DID beat Franken - through five recounts. Only after mysterious hidden truckloads of ballots were discovered did Franken win.

    I guess the wingnut media is doing its job of making you believe that crap. Take it up with the Minnesota court.

    :lol: that you actually believe such a thing. But you find it impossible that they just didn't count every vote in Florida back in 2000 huh? :eusa_whistle:

    Apples and submarines.

    The mess in MN more closely resembled the Rossi/Gregoire recount in WA, where certain key precincts ended up having more total votes than votes cast in the first place.

    Florida 2000 was about Algore trying to cherry pick precincts where he would pick up votes and excluding those where he was likely to lose ground.

    Non-sequitur. The court decision doesn't affect the objective reality of votes for Fraken being given under one standard while votes for Coleman being denied under that same standard. It doesn't also address the matter of votes materializing out of nowhere. All the court decision did was uphold the certification of the vote. "Taking it up with the court" is just some stupid "I winx0rz!" button used by people when they lack anything substantive with which they may debate.
