Well do I remember the conservative punks who were flown into Florida in 2000 (I was living there at the time) to stir up anger and stop the ballot counts. I also clearly remember them holding signs that read 'SORE LOOSERMAN!" which was supposed to be their clever interpretation of "GORE/LIEBERMAN."
Now the proverbial shoe is on the other proverbial foot. Norm Coleman is beginning to look like the Miss Havisham of the Republican Party.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota court confirmed Monday that Democrat Al Franken won the most votes in his 2008 Senate race against Republican Norm Coleman.
The ruling isn't expected to be the final word because Coleman immediately announced plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court. He has 10 days to do so. That appeal could mean weeks more delay in seating Minnesota's second senator.
"It's time that Minnesota like every other state have two" senators, a jovial Franken said outside his Minneapolis town home with his wife, Franni, at his side. "I would call on Senator Coleman to allow me to get to work for the people of Minnesota as soon as possible."
After a statewide recount and seven-week trial, Franken stands 312 votes ahead. Franken actually gained more votes from the election challenge than Coleman, the candidate who brought it.
IOW: STOP ACTING LIKE A SORE LOOSER, MAN!
