Franken’s “Win” Predictable

So, it’s finally happened!  I can’t believe it went all the way until 2009 for the Democrats to manufacture enough votes to get Al Franken to win the Senate election in Minnesota.  I’ve been saying since November that Minnesota’s election outcome was pretty predictable — Franken was down on November 4 all the way through December 19, when I noted Coleman was pretty much finished. 

The only hope was that the predictable formula of recounting the vote until the Democrat wins would be proven an anomaly (remember Bush was never officially down in Florida during the 2000 recount fiasco, just that Gore was gaining votes in remarkably inconsistent ways).  However, only a Coleman lawsuit can stop Franken’s official win. 

What’s funny is that Obama replacement Roland Burris may be physically restrained if he tries to enter the Senate chamber, but Al Franken, who’s election is still in legal limbo, could be seated by Harry Reid as early as tomorrow.  This Congress is not even seated yet and a shroud of corruption and political intrigue is already surrounding the 111th and Year Zero of the Obama Nation.  It’s going to be a crazy few years with these folks in charge!

Watching this show is more entertaining than any movie in 2008…even the Dark Knight!

Anyway, this Blago has some onions on him, nominating an African-American to the Senate to replace ‘The One,’ playing the race card with the possiblity of taking the ship down with him…we all know that if this were a Republican Senate and they refused an African-American nominated by an alleged crook, those on the left would be screaming bloody racism. The silence is deafening.

I hope that Coleman has the onions to follow through all the legal procedures and the Republicans in the Senate have the onions to filibuster Franken’s seating as all the legal challenges have not been resolved.
