I don't understand Minnesota politics

On Monday, a three-judge panel ruled in favor of Democrat Al Franken and against Republican Norm Coleman regarding who should be the winner of the disputed U.S. Senate race in Minnesota, according to CNN.com.

This really is not the main point of this posting, so if you want to read more about it click here.

The main point is that the election for this seat took place last November (that's five months ago, folks), and it is only now winding down. However, Coleman could appeal the decision and drag this out even more.

If I were a Minnesota citizen, I would be embarrassed. Before this, Florida was the gold standard when it came to botching elections, but Minnesota is gaining ground.

Of course, the big question is: Why would anybody want Al Franken to be their senator?

But that's another story for another time.

I wonder if anybody will write a book someday called "Al Franken is a big fat idiot."

I gotta feeling there are a lot of people who want to stick it to Franken. He certainly got rich doing it.

As much as I want Coleman to win, I'm afraid his appeals and such are making him look like a sore loser in the eyes of most Minnesotans. (MN's courts ain't gonna let Coleman win at this point.)

The U.S. Senate NEEDS Franken at this point. Obama's socialist policies + a MN senator who's not at all qualified to serve can only help the GOP come November 2010. I can just see the "Senator Franken: If Only We Were Joking" GOP ads for the next six years. That's political gold ...

Oh, and for "anonymous," there's already been a book calling Franken to task for being a first-class idiot: Al Franken Is a Buck-Toothed Moronhttp://www.amazon.com/Al-Franken-Buck-Toothed-Moron-Observations/dp/0965296601
