Senator Al Franken:

It’s finally prime time for former SNL writer Al Franken.

The Minnesota Supreme Court affirms that Franken won his Senate seat.

Governor Tim Pawlenty said on MSNBC Tuesday that he would sign the certificate if the court ordered him to.

Congratulations, Senator Franken!

  1. more:

    ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Supreme Court has ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race.

    The high court rejected a legal challenge from Republican  Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.

    Justices said Franken is entitled to the election certificate he needs to assume office. With Franken and the usual backing of two independents, Democrats will have a big enough majority to overcome Republican filibuster.

    Coleman hasn’t ruled out seeking federal court intervention.

    Federal intervention?  Bleh.

  2. what a fucking pathetic POS country we have.

    sorry Im in such a CRAPPY mood! lol. Been reading Dog and MoT’s Health diaries and other stuff and Im just so disgusted, in the overall.

    Then this. Oh GLORY BE, they’ve finally resolved the Senate vote from NOfuckingVEMBER 2008 and maybe the real winner will finally be seated. And how grateful are we to finally have this pitiful nit teeny weeny 1/100th of the Senate bit of justice. GRATEFUL I tell you! PRAISE THE POWERS. Jeezuz H. on a tostada. (I really should just stop reading DK commentary!)

    Now if the Governor will just sign the dang thing.  And if Coleman will let it go and not take it to the supremes.

    Is this the final roundup diary for the season?  😉

  3. I was in traffic when this came on the radio.

    Scared the dog yelling Fuck You Norm!

  4. …Even though eons too late, I’ll give thanks for any good news like this.

  5. and gosh darn it the people of MN voted for him!  

  6. HEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeee he he he.

    Not that I think the spineless Dems will pass anything decent anyway, but I still take childish glee and f’cking up the noe-cons even worse by numbers anyway.

    Good for you Al

  7. to 80, I fear. Frankin is getting grief already from the AP media types, they call him a comedian, with scorn. Meanwhile Coleman had so much rouge on at his presser he looked like the clown. As KO said “you mean the only PROFESSIONAL comedian in the senate”. LOL. What will they use for their excuse now, the blue dogs are waiting in the wings to make up for the threats of filibuster.


  8. will exceed expectations and get his sometimes, like my, tongue and temper in control and do very well.

    Thanks for the promotion to the front page, by the way.

    Warmest regards,
