Such sad, grasping desperation. Maybe Coleman will subpoena all of the voters of Minnesota next.

Another example from Coleman's fishing trip - I'm looking forward to the court asking for some evidence of all of his accusations. Give us some real proof, Norman!

We need him badly, certainly some Career politicians have done America a lot of good. Coleman for another 6, 12, 18, 24 years or longer. That would be the best for Minnesota.

Jeez, what a trip just to be able to comment. I had to give my life history. I live in New Jersey, but I gave $500 to Franken's campaign when it was just budding. I did it only to be able to hear his maiden speech on the senate floor. I hope I live long enough. Bob

He is referring to the conservative supreme court headed by a T-Paw appointee.

Coleman lost because Franken got more votes. Not all the judges are Democrats. Not all decisions went Franken's way. The counting wasn't stopped, the recount was concluded. And not every statistician said anything of the sort, in fact, a statistician predicted from the beginning that Franken would win after the recount.

Coleman is one desperate man. He will try anything and everything to change the votes of the people. Give it up Coleman and send your big lawyers packing. You lost. Get over it!

I'm truly in favor of Mr. Coleman getting a fair hearing on his election contest. If he doesn't it will be his attorneys' fault for casting so wide a net for something - anything at all will do - to hang his legal challenge on. Each move they makes seems to imply more and more that they don't have any substantive or procedural evidence to justify overturning the current result in favor of Mr. Franken
