not to be rude... but this is just more proof that there is nothing but idiots ruining Minnesota...
How stupid are the people of Minnesota? First Jesse Ventura, now Al Franken?
The strategy if Franken is seated in the Senate is to blizzard him with correspondence and tie up his phone lines from second 1.
Okay, maybe I can understand Minnesotans electing Jessie Ventura since he was mildly entertaining....but Al Franken? How could he get enough votes to come close to challenging Coleman? The man is looney tunes.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal;
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights;
that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;
that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;
that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
We all know what Thomas Jefferson would say about the democrats of today and what they call a government. I wonder if today's democrats know that they do not rule by the divine right of kings, contrary to the entitlement attitudes of Hillary, Pelosi, Teddy/Caroline Kennedy and their clan, Obama, and their big donors.
Not to mention, voting there as well.
They haven’t counted the Franken challenges that he rescinded yet. Wait till then to cry. There are several hundred ballots that Franken had originally challenged that have yet to be counted.
I'm hoping to see the lot of them cuffed and stuffed.
Frozen brains yield this type of result
Let's not forget that the Dems lost 7-2 on the key vote. By focusing strictly on 4 Democrat counties, the Democrats violated the Equal Rights clause.
Facts can be a real bee-yotch.
Due to the timidity of Pawlenty and Coleman, I've moved on. The Senate deserves the misery they will get with Al Franken as one of the 100. Getting to 60 votes is a moot point, as the Democrats will be able to count on John McCain crossing the aisle. There are several other RINOs that will back down as well.
Hell, let Caroline have Hillary's seat! That will drive Schumer up the wall! Caroline will be the media equivalent of a black hole in the Senate. NO ONE in the media will give two cents about the other 99. CNNNBCCBSPMSMBC will become the 24/7/365 Caroline Kennedy channel.
This States DFL should be indicted under RICO...
What a disgrace.
Don’t bet on it.
This cannot be happening.
Texas - What America used to be
We've seen it before many times and it always happens the same way. On election night the Dems hold up vote counting in their areas until the Republican areas have all turned in their counts so they can see how many votes they need. If they don't have enough, they creatively recount until they are ahead and then quit. It is the same every election and the Stupid Party never, ever learns.
Minnesota: Land of 10,000 lakes, and a few million village idiots.
“Are there any balls left in the Republican Party?!”
Limbaugh and Hannity, when they feel like it.
A couple of the congressmen from Oklahoma and Alabama
Oh and the rest still have their balls. They’ve just shrivelled to the size of an electron orbiting the nucleus of the element Selenium....
