ST. PAUL, Minn. Republican Norm Coleman has conceded to Democrat Al Franken in Minnesota's contested Senate race, ending a nearly eight-month recount and court fight. Coleman conceded at a news conference in St. Paul, a few hours after a unanimous Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Tuesday the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian and liberal commentator should be certified the winner..............

So now Norm Coleman has the distinction of losing to Jesse Ventura and Al Franken.
I think that’s a message that he needs to hang it up.
Honduras is looking pretty good right about now.
Wow, Diaper-boy won. Clearly no one to pin the economy on now besides the Dims.
America needs help now more than ever . . . .
A has-been comedian gets elected to the Senate. What a country! Thanks, Minnesota.
Coleman concedes election was corrupt and stolen. Another national disgrace. As long as the leadership of the GOP are all still searching for their gonads, this corruption will continue.
That assumes that (a) people can think logically enough to do it, and (b) the media would honestly report it. Instead, when the economy crashes because of cap-n-tax, Obama and his Rat minions will still find a way to blame it on “the evil rich” and “the policies of the Bush administration,” and the MSM will dutifully report it as truth, while distracting the sheeple with wall-to-wall Michael Jackson death coverage and reality TV.
Eight months is an unprecedented fight. What else do you want? SCOTUS won’t go here. Anyway their session just ended.
Coleman should have done this long ago. Who in their right mind would want to serve voters who were so weak in their support?
They can reconvene if needed. I’d push it if it were me against Al.
This is true. However the evil rich are quickly becoming an endangered species.
...go ask John McCain.

This is why I am a conservative and not a republican. Not a backbone or ounce of fight to be found in the GOP. The party symbol should be changed to an elephant bending over with a smile on his face. Attention pansy assed RINOS, get the fuck out the way so that the rest of us can take the lead in resisting the socialist SOB in the White House and keep this nation free. Al Franken can go to hell.
Good grief! Outside of being a RAT & a another congressional dummy which would be cause enough to remove him from office IMHO, does he have any mistresses or Barney Frank’s discards or acts of treason for cause for impeachment ?
I hope the 15% who voted for the Independence Party (formerly Reform Party) candidate are proud of themselves. You sure did a heck of a job punishing those evil Republicans for not being conservative enough.
I guess none of you have ever heard of the saying “cutting off your own nose to spite your face”? Helping to elect Al Franking to punish Republicans would be the political verion.
Norm Coleman voted for last years $700 billion dollar bail-out, Coleman got what he deserved, though America doesn’t deserve Air America’s failed talk show host Al Franken
