Sigh. Another day, another Coleman lawsuit. Claims of malfeasance with nothing but circumstantial evidence. *shrugs* I guess if it makes him happy...

The extra work created by Coleman could help employment recover. While the U.S. Congress sits on its hands, Mr. Coleman is working to help up. Thank you.

We heard the Dems say this in Florida, We heard Al Franken say it a few months ago. So why change now?

“If you ask me what I would do, I would step back,” said Coleman.

Hey Norm...Minnesotans voted for someone else. It's time to step into reality in your professional and personal life. Unbelievable the amount of debt on your home. What were you thinking?

Norm Coleman to be ethically or morally consistent? Minnesota elected a man who said he was a Democrat until he saw that he would have an easier time grasping for power as a Republican. He begged Franken to throw in the towel. Now, he will do anything, say anything to retain his senate seat. I am so anxious to hear his concession speech. I am so anxious to see him fade into private wealth. Apparently, he needs more money than a senator makes, anyway. On the other hand, as Nate Silver said, he has little to lose. His past electoral efforts include losing to a professional wrestler, beating a dead guy, and tying a comedian. He might as well fight it out as long as the money lasts because he ain't goin' nowhere in this state.

Coleman is a tool. More Dem than Repbulican.. Yet the comments say he should step down to someone who ripped off a boys and girls club. Oh well, lets send up Franken.. really.. what's the harm he'll either be a rubber stamp for Reid or at best/worst he'll vote Present like the recent former senator from IL..

K Harris put a stop to the recount after several weeks, and by early Dec. Bush was president-elect. One way or the other we're mid March AT BEST. Putting aside that, as a non-Coleman, non-Franken voter I'm beyond annoyed at Coleman for pushing this so far. It's beyond the pale, and I promise the GOP will suffer in MN for his decision. Because many us who might vote with the GOP are going to remember this b&*ls@#t. Take to the bank: even if he manages to get appointed (and let's face it folks, either way it's now an appointment not an election) we'll all remember his drawing this nonsense out.
