Norm, stop the circus and let all the votes be counted and recounted properly. Be dignified and just see what the final total is.

More ballots "appear" out of nowhere. I bet all kinds of ballots will suddenly appear from Hennepin and Ramsey county. Funny how all these DFL stronghold areas made "mistakes" and suddenly Franken has more votes. 'Oh, did I mark down 24 votes for Al. I meant, 124.' By the time they get to December I'm sure Franken will have won by a landslide!

This behavior makes you smell like three-day-old Alaskan fish, Senator Coleman, and the stench is becoming more and more unbearable.

Hey Norm, what if those were 32 ballots for you? Getting a little panicky about this whole thing, eh?

What's wrong? Don't you remember things like jurisdictional boundaries from your lawyer days, or have all those free trips made your head soft?

I moved to Canada and now vote absentee in Minneapolis. I am sick to think that one of those 32 ballots could be mine. Just count all the votes, it is that simple. I want my vote to count, it is my right.

.... trying to block votes from being counted, almost begging Franken not to do a recount, slapping down yet another lawsuit. Give it a rest, Normie, and let democracy happen. The recount will determine once and for all whether or not you can go back to your cheapo DC apartment and keep on getting free clothes and trips to Paris.

American citizens get to vote in America, even if they reside elsewhere. I assume you have no problem with soldiers who live in Iraq voting in America. Indeed, what a system we have!
