I saw Al at the coffee shop in Manhattan yesterday and he was checking the internet to see if his lawyers figured it out yet. He is enjoying his time here, and is not looking forward to going back to Minnesota.

Really didn't realize that there where that many idiots in Minnesota that would vote for an idiot like Franken. Guess you all love it when a carpetbagger moves to your state to steal a election. Don't worry about big Al, he said his next stop is NY, to replace Hillary. He knows he can buy enough votes in the slums to get elected.

They want this to end up in the courts since the court system is the Liberal's home turf. And since it looks like sooner or later they will get their way my bets are still on Franken

Al Franken couldn't get himself elected in the worst election for Republicans in decades and now he wants to change the rules? Slither back to Manhattan you worthless piece of trash, even brain dead liberals can see through your tired act.

Hey. Just let me know when the recount finally favors Franken-stein. You just can’t be too careful. Kinda reminds me of 2000. Ballots were recounted so many times the counters were going blind and alleged dimples became votes (even though there were holes elsewhere on the ballot).“Hanging chad” became the rallying cry of the covetous Democrats as they appropriated vote after vote until the Supremes cried out,“ENOUGH, DAMMIT”!
Wake me when it’s over.

As much as I enjoy writing rant after rant about Al Franken, the fact remains that I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke Franken to cause this country to flounder on the shoals of self-interest, corruption, and chaos.
Let me get to the crux of the matter: If he gets his way, some of us will be able to build a true community of spirit and purpose based on mutual respect and caring. The rest of us are not card-carrying communists with a drive to destroy America.
Therefore, we must not let him reward mediocrity. I have given this issue a great deal of thought, and I now have a strong conviction that everyone ought to read my award-winning essay, "The Naked Aggression of Al Franken". In it, I chronicle all of Franken's outbursts from the inaniloquent to the squalid and conclude that some people believe that one day Franken's intimates will rub Franken's nose in his own hypocrisy. Such people are doomed to disappointment, especially when one considers that I recently informed Franken that his lickspittles inject even more fear and divisiveness into political campaigns.
Franken said he'd "look further into the matter." Well, not too much further. After all, he has been trying for some time to sell the public on a neopaganism-based government. Franken's sales pitch proceeds both pragmatically and emotionally.
The pragmatic argument: It's okay to hurt others physically or emotionally. The emotional argument: Things have never been better.
As you can see, neither argument is valid, which should indicate to you that in public, he vehemently inveighs against corruption and sin. But when nobody's looking, he never fails to make widespread accusations and insinuations without having the facts to back them up.
Lastly, I can't end this rant without mentioning the obvious, in that Al Franken's public virtue is immeasurably dwarfed by his private vice.
But here's the good news for Democrats:

Encouraged by Franken's paucity of gravitas and emboldened by his pornmeister-identity-is-no-bar rier-to-Democrat-candidacy example, Christie Hefner will move to Minnesota and run for a Senate seat if Franken loses.
