Franken is CERTIFIABLE.....so are the people that VOTED for him.
OMG!!! What does THAT say about Norm Coleman??? Really, it says MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN MINNESOTA!! BRAIN FREEZE!
Except if you need your brain later in life.
“As previously stated, the voters in Minnesota did not elect FranKlown! Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie, did by choosing which ballots to count.:
The voters of MN don’t skate on this. It was a contest that shouldn’t have even been close. The voters of MN made it close enough for Franken and the DNC to ‘fix’ the end result.
It was similar in VA in ‘06 with Webb barely beating out George Allen. Allen chose not to contest the initial count. Dumba$$ VA and MN voters.
..found that at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis St Paul voted illegally in the 2008 Senate race between Franken, a Democrat, and his Republican opponet.... The final recount vote in the race, determined six months after Election Day, showed Franken beat Coleman by 312 votes--fewer votes than the number of felons whose illegal ballots were counted. Fox News, July 12, 2010...Ed Barnes.
Franken won with the illegal convicted felon vote.
Nobody tell them that everything they say on the floor is being recorded for posterity. Let that be our secret. Would like to see the look on their faces when they find that out.
I bet he IS most FOUL!
I think they should bring back dueling. With swords, guns, whatever. There are some people Id risk dying for a chance to kill them legally.
When sane people are again in charge, and the future history books are written, Franken’s photo will be next to Caligula’s horse.
he needs to use it every day and stay out of the senate
Minnesota didn't vote for him.The first 3 or 4 counts proved that.
Now if I recall correctly Al was a wrestler..And while not all wrestlers have ISSUES..Many MANY that I went to school with wrestled because they enjoyed taking their own problems out on others, many flat out enjoy being able to hurt people without consequences..they thrive on it...I believe Al is one of these “people?”
I say push him till he blows. Same for Barry.
How about a vacation/travel boycott of Mn for as long as Franken is Senator? I think this has potential. It’s what the libs would do.
Yep, the voters were complete idiots—and frankly, I think either Hilton or Gibson would do a marginally better job than Al Franken.
C’mon, Franken is a Master-debator...
(or something like that)
Yeah, there's a joke in there somewhere...
He brags about his drug use. Why the suprise?
Too much LDS?
And audio. And signed affidavits.
But it was close enough to steal.
Franken and Alan Grayson are both crazy. They need to be put in straight jackets and taken away. Lindsey Graham can go with them, he’s bi-polar.
I know it's hard to believe, but diaper boy is a senator. A United States senator. God help us all.
They need this stuff on video to do any damage.
ACORN got this scumbag the votes he needed.
So typical for libtards to be irrational and motivated by their passions rather than reason. Why else would they think and act the way that they do?
If I was a Senator , Franken would be missing teeth the 1st time he unleashed such a fit.
just a guy with “anger management issues”??
how about a “loathsome babbling adolescent scumbag with severe irremediable character flaws”
there, fixed it
This situation is ripe for provocateurs to capture Franken being Franken on video. Figure out what pushes his buttons, push said buttons, and let cameras roll.
The first item of such a bill HAS TO BE runoff elections or instant runoff elections for all public offices. Nobody should ever fear to vote his first choice, at least on a first ballot, and nobody should ever hold any public office with less than 50% of the vote.
There should also be a None-Of-Above choice on all ballots for public office and if that choice ever wins, then the other candidates should be barred for life from holding any public office and the parties sponsoring them should be barred for at least ten years from sponsoring candidates for that particular office. The penalty for running dead wood for public offices should be severe.
Another item on such a voters' bill of rights should be something which would eliminate voting fraud for all time and if that means getting rid of the secret ballot or at least limiting it somehow or other, so be it, we're paying too high a price for it. Somehow or other it has to be possible to check up on votes when there are questions or evidence of fraud.
There should be a provision that when a president is impeached and removed, his VP goes out the door with him and the office is either vacant until the next election or an emergency election is held to fill the office for the remainder of the current term. Granted removing a president should be difficult but it should not be impossible and if we couldn't remove Slick, we'd not have been able to remove Hitler or Nero either.
What happened in 98/99 was that Trent Lott simply refused to hand the presidency over to Algor with a year to go on Slick's second term, for obvious reasons. The situation should not be possible.
A person should need to be a US citizen for 18 years before voting in a US election. It should not be possible for a rogue political party to rule our land by simply importing large voting blocks for itself.
There should also be some mechanism to prevent utterly unqualified people from holding high offices. Certainly a candidate for president or vice president, or for US Senator or member of the House of Representatives should need to obtain the same basic and simple secret level security clearance which anybody would need to be a guard at the gate of any military base in our land. That isn't asking for much but it would have spared us from the last two democrat presidents.
There are a few other things you'd want but that's the main gist of it. There is also a question as to the extent the people should be voting on issues directly since we now have the technology to allow that while the founding fathers did not. You could get some of these evil social issues settled once and for all and out of politics, and you could limit the scope for corruption and bribery by letting the people themselves settle at least some kinds of issues.
I’ve always enjoyed pushing the right buttons on someone like franken, until they snap. Surely there’s someone in DC that could do it.
yep. The people are about to get what they asked for and it ain't gonna be pretty.
You can thank the 17th amendment for that idiocy!
I could, but I'd rather hate it and work to repeal it. The 16th too.
Wisconsin has a similar personality although not to the same extent - voting for “our guy” regardless of the nation’s opinion.
Milwaukee once sent Socialist Victor Berger to the House of Representatives only to have him rejected as the house refused to seat him.
The response? He was re-elected.
Classic Bipolar disorder. Maybe a little boozing on the side too.
LOL So true
Believe me, some of us feel a great deal of shame, but not for lack of voting.
Now, we tighten up our voting process everywhere but in the jurisdictions where the fraud occurs, the Twin Cities.
If the people get the kind of government we deserve, we have been very bad.
What will Al do if Linda MacMahon wins in Connecticut???
I’ve gone to oskosh and was amazed that two or three corners at nearly every intersection had a beer bar.
HeRe a gas station or bank.
Voters just as lame though
