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.
