Your reputation was lost in '98 when Ventura was elected, then punished again when Coleman was elected. Now the MN Liberal network fleeced the voters in electing a comedian from NY as your Senator. The country, the world, scratches our head over this decision. Bravo to MN, you've outdone yourself again.

At least our MN Senators don't wear diapers when they visit prostitutes (David Vitter) or get busted in restrooms at the airport soliciting for gay sex (Larry Craig). Now that's what I call embarrassing. Jesse and Al can't hold a candle to that behavior.

I am sure glad that votes in democratic counties count for more than ones in republican counties.

I relish it. I like boneheads on CNN and Fox calling us nuts. Phoey to them, this is America and we have a right to decide. For all his bluster Jesse was a pretty good governor, he did some things I agree with and some things I disagreed with but all in all managed things allright. We will see about Franken but he has made the proper steps so far. Don't be so sensitive, it will be okay.

Minnesota already has a bad reputation for its far-left bent. This just makes us the laughing stock with Junior Achiever coming in.

The bod schooled Hannity! Yeah, Hannity and Fox will call Al names but I bet the same will happen if Hannity ever has the guts to book him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeMuDN9Ewyc

The process occurred just as the law was written. The different was less that 0.5% (heck, it was less than 0.05%), so an automatic recount took place. The candidate with the lower total had a right to challenge the recount in court and did. He also had a right to appeal that court decision to the State Supreme Court and did. I wish, like many others, that it hadn't taken 8 months to complete, but I believe that the process worked as it was designed. For that reason, I see no shame in being a Minnesotan. I heard a comment on TV that bears repeating: "No election is ever going to be perfect." I think that's especially true when we're talking about millions of voters.

I will NEVER VOTE AGAIN. It really doesn't matter who you vote for. And yes, I voted for Franken.
