You are a bunch of losers to have voted a comedian to represent the State of Minnesota.
It is appaling, what else is there to say.
It was a long haul and of course more drawn out than it should have been. Minnesota was inundated with out of state money in this process from admittedly both sides but much more so on the Coleman side. Coleman ran one of the most despicable campaigns I have ever witnessed in my 63 years upon this planet. Coleman'"gracious" concession phone call to Franken was certainly done with an eye to the gubernatorial race coming in 2010. Voters memories are short and this disgrace will not hurt him all that bad I think. I do believe that he is still a strong candidate for the Republican nomination because the field as it now stands is quite week. Coleman will have to run a somewhat more tame campaign and tone down on the outright lies and vilifications he is used to. Of course there is the impending FBI case in federal court for fraud and misuse of campaign funds which if it has legs would probably put a final end to Coleman's political career. I for one am not favorably disposed to see Coleman running for anything.
Finally, we have a man as a senator that can think for himself with some integrity. Not like our previous senator that changed direction whichever would further his career.
You wouldn't be saying that if the comedian had been Rush Limpbaugh.

A great day because the justice system worked in an impartial and nonpartisan way. Of course not everyone wanted Franken to win and they got to vote for the opposition-in this case the candidate who did not prevail in an extremely close contest. Many leaders have been elected with little or no experience and with sometimes very unusual backgrounds. Our new Senator deserves a chance to do his thing. Let's see what he can accomplish. If the results do not meet expectations then the voters get to decide who gets the chance to prove themselves in the next senatorial election.
Yeah, a comedian who graduated from Harvard. He's no dummy, and you will find that out now that he has finally been confirmed.
Go collect a fortune as a lobbyist, which is your next career move, right?
And that is what Normie is, a joke!
You elected a representative that has not lived in the state since he left for college 40 years ago and has never looked back until he needed some chumps and rubes to use for his personal gain......SUCKERS
Franken did live in Minnesota after college-I remember him and Tom Davis as regulars at Dudley Riggs in the 70's.
