So the big shot lawyers are lining up to waste more time and effort to decide which of the two jackwagons gets to waste everyone's time by pretending they actually care what happens to the little guy.

Big deal.

Sutton expressed simmering discontent with the 2008 results, with Franken winning by 312 votes, saying, "We're not going to get rolled this time."

Maybe not, but Republicans will once again in their bid to 'Floridate" Minnesota the way Bush and players did in 2008, lose the Governorship to Senator Mark Dayton, the correct choice for the job.

Republikkans will now have to blame, what, like "10,000 felons who voted"?!?!? Get real, right wing, and quit whimpering like three-year-olds that dropped their ice cream cone.

"Something doesn't smell right when you take control of the state House, you take control of the state Senate, you win the Eighth Congressional District, folks, and yet somehow, somehow, we don't win the governor's race," Sutton said this morning, predicting that Emmer would win.

While I agree it should have been a slam dunk for governor as well ....... BUT don't underestimate the stupidity of Hennepin County voters.

Regarding Sutton's comments about 'Something not smelling right'. We cannot forget that the election isn't just about parties, but about people. If all it took was being part of a temporarily popular party, we could have had anyone in Emmer's spot. When it comes down to it, it looks like the best person is ahead, despite any recent political trends.

With the vote being so close, a good honest recount will assure all voters that their votes count. I voted for Emmer but think it could be fun to watch the hapless Dayton as gov. The damage he can do will be limited by the Republican legislature.

"Get rolled?" Seriously? They had a herd of lawyers standing there watching every single thing - they did not get rolled. Poor losers.

Minnesota Republicans reaction to defeat is to claim the fix was in. They disregard the fact that Democrats won all the other state wide offices (AG, Sec of State & Auditor) and neglect the fact that Tom Horner drained away moderate Rpeublican votes. Had they selected a candidate less extreme than Emmer, they might have won. Now Dayton is left to deal with a Republican led legislature, just the opposite of the last eight years. Gridlock remains the norm.

Big deal.
People are elected to not just represent the 'little guy', but to represent everyone.

The ad where the mother indicated Emmer had a hand in her sons death did him, I'm suprised he got more than ten percent of the vote,

Probably because 51% of this state (even reds) realize that he is an extremist and a liability. Thank jeebus Dayton won.

The liberal nutbars are already lining up to demonstrate they have no conscience. Election theft is just part of their toolbox.
