Time to work for a living instead of feeding at the public trough..
5 weeks of testimony and public support has not shifted towards Coleman's argument at all. Time to hang up the gloves and spare the taxpayers from 5 more weeks of trial, opinions and the cost of not having representation in Washington.
Norms gotta go
Similar to the transition from winter to spring, progress in this process is slow and almost imperceptible. We have to look for subtle signs, like cracks in the ice and the first snowmobile mishap.The whole justification for this contest was that it would give Coleman a chance to present arguments not heard during the recount, with the implication that Coleman would play his cards and accept the result. So what's it gonna be, Norm? Is spring just around the corner, or do we have another 6 weeks?
If Mr. Coleman had any class he would have dropped this nonsense, congratulated Sen. Franken and started work on his comeback. But with all of his protest & legal wrangling at the tax payer's expense. I think it best that he goes on the talk circuit if anyone will listen. I know I won't be!
Now its Frankens's turn ......to feed at the public trough.......and he really looks the part... He He
Oops! Should be throw...
If nothing else, just so I can read and enjoy the comments posted here (my favorites are from liberals who like to pretend that Franken wouldn't have filed an election contest -- and that somehow Minnesota isn't getting "adequate representation" in Washington). Seems to me that the daily bail-outs are coming along just fine without Franken. Also, good news for you Democrats. It turns out that the stock market can't actually go below zero -- so you're half-way home!! Keep up the good work!
I understand that he pumped a lot of money into his campaign, likes his job, and doesn't want to leave... But he's already gotten another high paying job offer if he loses the recount and is now just dragging this on far too long and hence Minnesota is underrepresented in the Senate. If he cared about Minnesotans he'd just end it and let us have our voices be heard just as equally as other states. Him dragging this on so long shows that he only cares about either a) himself, b) his party, or c) both. Not Minnesota or our voice.
And after 2 years of economic disaster all the independents will be lined up at the polls to replace Democrats with Republicans
