    Al Franken has been declared the winner in Minnesota. The three judges in the court case have ruled that he received more votes than his opponent Coleman. This comes as a disappointment to the Republicans who can still hold up Franken's seating in the Senate for six more months. It is certain that the devoted followers of the GOP will accuse the judges of misconduct, but had the ruling gone the other way, the Republican faithful would have called them the three wise men.
    You win some, you lose some, and lately the GOP has been on a losing streak. On the other hand, America as a whole has been on a winning streak.
    Congratulations, Senator Franken.

    LOL. It's their loss having him represent them. But whatever, good luck to them and him.

    A number of "good" GOPers lost their seats who should not have simply because they were caught in the undertow. What we have here is a questionable Dem who managed to ride out the [Obama/Democratic] tide. I won't begrudge him his victory, as it was apparently won fairly, but the question remains:
    You can take the comic out of the theater, but can you take the theater out of the comic?

    Al Franken has values that are pro America and yet balanced. Bravo, voters of Minnesota.

    All Coleman did with his challenge is replicate what has been going on for some time. My guess the only people who will actually be disappointed are the people around Coleman. Beyond that, who cares?

    Just proves the point that Democrats are so stupid they will vote for any asshat with a (D) next to his name. No shock there. Hope the twit doesn't help destroy the state.
