Makes the apt comparison between WA and MN republicans opposing a full recount at all costs. Calling ballots set aside for signature verification "magical mystery ballots" is comparable to the noise machine's repeated lie that ballots are found in poll workers trunks, that ACORN has ANY influence and that Franken ballots are counted twice and poor wittow Normie can't let the process proceed without casting aspersions. Diaz also predicts Norm will still be in court this summer while Al Is sitting in Wellstone's seat.

What do we do about the fact that though any objective person who look s at the information from that polling place would say they lost an envelope, but because the local official was an idiot and came up with a different conclusion and said this conclusion to the press, before becoming aware that it was wrong. those 46 votes are goning to be the margin and Coleman will take that to court.

I'm sure if your candidate lost because of some ballots mysteriously found in the trunk of somebody's car, you'd have no hard feelings.

Coleman's newest thing of challenging IMPROPERLY TOSSED absentee ballots makes NO SENSE. Why does he think those would even be for Franken? DOES COLEMAN KNOW THAT THEY WERE IMPROPERLY TOSSED OUT BECAUSE OF WHERE THEY VOTED? Can you think of any other reason to oppose counting legitimate ballots?

This is not that complicated people. If you can't color within the lines on one circle, and one circle only, you are probably not making an informed vote anyway.

Norm Coleman is just a warmed over Demorat anyway. I wouldn't give him a nickel and I am a faithful GOP contributor.

The state of Minnesota should put into law a revote and it should be inspired by the governor. Georgia did it and it came out fair. This process of recounts of messed up ballots being counted by mostly democrats is not really fair to the rest of the people of this state who voted independent or republican. It never fails me to understand why democrats in this state blast anyone else but hold no allegiance to doing the right thing!
