    Incredible. Current tally in the Minnesota US Senate race has Coleman up by 2(!!!) votes.

      Apparently, Franken is now in the lead.

        I very vividly remember watching SNL one night in December 1979, and he comes on to 'Weekend Update' and delivers this statement. One of the show's best moments.

        Al Franken: Thank you, Jane. Well, the "me" decade is almost over, and good riddance, and far as I'm concerned. The 70's were simply 10 years of people thinking of nothing but themselves. No wonder we were unable to get together and solve any of the many serious problems facing our nation. Oh sure, some people did do some positive things in the 70's - like jogging - but always for the wrong reasons, for their own selfish, personal benefit. Well, I believe the 80's are gonna have to be different. I think that people are going to stop thinking about themselves, and start thinking about me, Al Franken. That's right. I believe we're entering what I like to call the Al Franken Decade. Oh, for me, Al Franken, the 80's will be pretty much the same as the 70's. I'll still be thinking of me, Al Franken. But for you, you'll be thinking more about how things affect me, Al Franken. When you see a news report, you'll be thinking, "I wonder what Al Franken thinks about this thing?", "I wonder how this inflation thing is hurting Al Franken?" And you women will be thinking, "What can I wear that will please Al Franken?", or "What can I not wear?" You know, I know a lot of you out there are thinking, "Why Al Franken?" Well, because I thought of it, and I'm on TV, so I've already gotten the jump on you. So, I say let's leave behind the fragmented, selfish 70's, and go into the 80's with a unity and purpose. That's what I think. I'm Al Franken. Jane?

          Franken leads by 225 with the recount complete.

            Let's see if Coleman follows his own advice.

              I'm a true middle of the roader ( liberal Republican/conserv. Democrat) so I have no horse in this race to any appreciable degree, but Coleman needs to now realize that there is a time to live, a time to die, a time to win, and a time to lose. Time's up.

                Even Coleman's lawyer knows it is hopeless.

                  It may be hopeless, but he's suing anyway.

                    Maybe we should just let Minnesota have three Senators for the next two years, then have 'em do it again.

                      Or, Minnesota could just loan one to Illinois or New York, both of which are going to be one Senator shy,

                        As for NY I don't know what is going to happen. But in Illinois it looks like Burris is going to get his 15 months (minutes?) of fame in the Senate. Whether he survives the election next year.....stay tuned.

                          Caroline Kennedy, you know, would maybe be pretty, you know, good as a, you know, Senator.

                              I note with some small interest that the Chief Justice of the MN Supreme Court has recused himself from selecting the three-judge panel which will hear any further augments in this election, leaving the panel selection to Associate Justice (and former Purple People Eater) Alan Page.
