Begala: Coleman's "Selfish" Fight Could Deprive State of its Senator for Months!

This is said in print, as if with a straight face, and almost like it's a big fuckin deal or something.

The case could drag on for weeks or even months -- and all the while, Minnesota will be fighting for federal funds with one senator tied behind its back.

My fellow Texan (no more a native than I am) is apparently on the front line of the orders from the left: "you are all charged with making the stupidest of arguments on behalf of our side". The long drawn out fight should just be conceded because golly darn, what will Minnesota do with just one Senator while this mess is counted and shit?

I don't know. Not participate in the federal legislative process until it's properly resolved because they couldn't seem to come to some agreement up there?

Personally I can't work up an ounce of "give a shit" for Norm Coleman, but he's got a right to fight it out Paul. Your argument doesn't sound "noble". It doesn't sound "important". It sounds like, what's the word I'm looking for? Fucking partisan bullshit from the CNN dorks that give you a megaphone. Yes. That's the word.

Ok, words.

UPDATE: couple of astute commenters have already pointed out the Dems were willing to let South Dakota ride it out with Sen. Tim Johnson out of action following his stroke for nine months. For the good of the nation.
