Norm Coleman is going to win this contest. We just need another few years to resolve this difficult problem. We will litigate this matter and take this to the Supreme Court of the United States if necessary. We love you. Do not worry. We need to ensure Norm get's another 6, 12, 18, 24 years in the Senate. Norm Coleman is simply irreplaceable by any human that exits in the world today. Thank you again. And, please send your financial donations to Norm Coleman and the Republican party. We love you.

Ahhhh, the U.S. Supreme Court will disagree with you on that one. Normally those errors are not a signifigant factor in the election process. The closeness of this vote requires "ridgid sameness" to determine a winner. You boys are 'bout to get spanked down big time!

Just wondering how long will this process drag out. Given the nature of such a close election its impossible to get the results perfectly accurate and also impossible to make the imperfections consistent. Humans will make errors, machines will malfunction, people will scam the system (on both sides). Somewhere we have to say that's it.

they can always refuse certiorari (review) if the previous court got it right. and they should. but they probably won't, to put the final kick in on this bar fight. and I expect the MN Supremes to use the word "directed," as in, "The State is hereby directed to issue a certificate of election to Al Franken." "directed" in legalese means "RFN, dammit."

How come Norm wasn't at all concerned about the so-called disinfranchised voters on the morning of Nov 5? Because he thought he was leading? Now he's making himself out to be a martyr for the Constitution. I think he did too much acid at Woodstock and has ever since had an identity crisis.

If the election were an old girlfriend, she would have gotten a restraining order by now.
