Court rules Al Franken winner in Minn. Senate race~ Norm Coleman appeals, demands to see Al’s birth certificate

Bonus: video of norm getting absolutely pwned by George Galloway.

  Wow, that was a tight race!  Of almost 2.9 million votes cast, only 312 wound up  separating  Franken (Democrat) and Coleman (Douchbag) from becoming the next Senator from Minnesota. Following an eight month legal battle which saw the incumbent Coleman take a 206 vote lead,  a unanimous state Supreme Court ruled in Al’s favour. (hello! activist Liberal judges, anyone?)

  With Franken’s victory, the Democrats have crossed the filibuster threshold Republicans would likely employ to obstruct any proposed legislation that would contradict their moral beliefs. Things like Universal health care, letting the evil gays marry, taking science classes -  anything that might actually move the country forward. Although, even with Franken becoming the 60th senator, there is still no guarantee the D’s will push through their agenda. The conservative Democrats seem to have a difficult time moving forward as well. Time will tell.

  As unreasonable as it may seem, having to wait 8 months for a winner to emerge, I would say the more disturbing aspect is the amount of money these two spent. Combined, Coleman and Franken injected 50 million dollars in pursuit of the seat.  I’ve heard it said “if you’re rich, we’ve got the best legal system in the world”. I suppose the same holds true with democracy.  
And now without further adieu, Coleman having his ass handed to him. Here is a taste.


"Now, Senator, I gave my heart and soul to oppose the policy that you promoted. I gave my political life's blood to try to stop the mass killing of Iraqis by the sanctions on Iraq which killed one million Iraqis, most of them children, most of them died before they even knew that they were Iraqis, but they died for no other reason other than that they were Iraqis with the misfortune to born at that time. I gave my heart and soul to stop you committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq.

And I told the world that your case for the war was a pack of lies.


“I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims did not have weapons of mass destruction. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to al-Qaeda. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11 2001. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that the Iraqi people would resist a British and American invasion of their country and that the fall of Baghdad would not be the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.

"Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies.
