Senator Franken
Bumped and Updated: Coleman concedes

Breaking.

The Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled unanimously in favor of Al Franken in the disputed U.S. Senate race, according to Franken attorney David Lillehaug.

Update - Coleman says he'll abide by court ruling, concedes.

A thought [DrewM.]

Yeah this sucks but...if Coleman were going to be defeated by anyone, I'm pretty excited that a fool like Franken won.

Repbulicans showed they would never stick together on a filibuster anyway, now it's clear what's being done is passed with Democratic votes. Plus, he's going to be a clown. Making him the face of the Democrats nationally will be fun.

If Coleman had lost to some bland, inconsequential cipher that would melt into the background they'd probably stay there forever. Sen. Smalley will be gone in 6 yrs. Maybe even in a rematch with Coleman.

In the meantime, Republicans can have some fun making him the poster boy of Harry Reid's Senate majority.

Playing the optimist looking for the pony in the pile of crap doesn't come naturally but it's what we've got to work with.

Thanks to Slublog for generously offering up the chance to post this idea which I originally floated in an email.
