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..............

Another clown in the Senate, what’s new...
Call me a Waaaaaambulance!
A professional wrestler, now a comedian in diapers that admitted selling cocaine to former SNL cast members?
Whats up with that state?
THIS IS UN FREAKING BELIEVABLE. Really what have we become.
Is there a pool on how long before Franken gets out of control and attacks someone in the senate?
Thank you John McCain.
Maybe Norm will be the other RINO to think about running for guv(the other RINO being former Congresscritter Jim Ramstad)
How long before Weird Al appears on Letterman?
Darn.. the ancient Roman senate got a horse and all we get is a jackass.
It sure is nice to see Coleman fight this one as far as possible.
Norm, this is why you don’t take any opposing candidate for granted.
our meth and heroin are particularly high grade...
How could a freak like this attack anyone?
Hang on. The ride is going to get really rough.
Just in time for the senate vote on cap and tax?
Not that those spineless bstrds in the Congress would filibuster anything anyway, but WTF do they have to spend money on that would have been better spent than fighting this to the Supremes? Anything come to YOUR mind? Because I am stunned.
Yep. Stuart Smalley goes to Washington. I must be dreaming.
Don’t certify him. If Obama can do what he is doing; surely one governor can stop this?
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.
As Bender would say

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
Good coffee, good cigars, nice weather, people who stand up to tyranny. I can think of worse places (Minnesota, for starters).
Michael Jackson (in his current state) could run in MN and win, as long as he promised “universal” health care , cardcheck and said crap like “do it for Paul”.
I can’t wait to see who we get to choose from for guv...
Well, look on the bright side.
It means my state (CA) is no longer guilty of sending the WORST senator to Washington.
Last one out, turn the light off.
Reform voters are Jesse Ventura’s whack jobs. If anything, they’ll pulled votes away from Smalley.
The democrat unbeatable strategy for winning is to “find” enought votes to put you ahead and then declare all uncounted ballots as invalid. Simple!! God help the USA!!
No, thanks to the fools who sat home election day or voted third party.
Hope they enjoy far Left Franken
Bill O’Reilly is going to need sedatives tonight. ;-)
IT is all over the DEms now have the magical 60 votes, and they will never lose power again...
