More important than Coleman or Franken, is that the Rule of Law is the ultimate winner. Then Minnesotans also win.

well, this must be a sure sign of impending Apocalypse, all you conspiracy theorist out there. The word m*o*n*k*i*e*s gets censored.

This is yet another conclusive proof that there is no God. Were there one, he'd most certainly have started with a fresh batch of m*o*n*k*i*e*s, as this one was so very clearly tainted.

Just thought you'd like to know that M.o.n.k.e.y became a Topix censored word during the Presidential campaign when it was used as a reference to Barack Obama.

The court should tell us to go without for a few years. It doesn't seemed to have mattered thus far. Put the salary back into the budget, we need it. I wonder how many teachers or police officers we could afford on one senators salary and all of his/her staff.

Thanks, Eagle. I feared that much. Again, it's a sad comment on our community.

Frau, with all that is sacred in the world of stable, how is this relevant to Coleman's body continuing to twitch long after the head has been cut off on Jan. 6th? Besides President Barack Obama is away above average; to call him anywhere near mean is to be intellectually dishonest. But back to the stables, do you hear the violin? It's not coming from the study. It's the fat lady warming up.

Carry on,

I have a great idea, Al Franken should go play hopscotch on Interstate 494.
Then we will FINALLY have the Senator we always should have had.

Coleman needs to find new work. I don't think he deserves a "lifetime" in the Senate. Goodbye Coleman. Thank goodness!!

MINNESOTA HELD HOSTAGE! 2009
ABCs Nightline launched with a graphic,(America Held HOSTAGE) when Iranian terrorists (without provocation) declared Americans there to be IRANs PRISONERS. A world SUPERPOWER –our hands tied; fellow citizens brutalized, tortured and imprisoned for more than a year. American alive then were so ENRAGED, IRAN could have been leveled --without regret.
WELCOME to IRAN 2009/MINNESOTA held HOSTAGE … by terrorists GOP & NORM COLEMAN. Who care NOTHING of right/wrong or following RULES — it’s ONLY about getting their way. Salivating as they ARE for bush v gore REPLAY as IF that was a GOOD THING.
When the GOP doesn’t LIKE election results – they will take it to the Supreme Court no matter HOW LONG it takes – OR how MUCH it costs! MORE THAN 200-years of peaceful TRANSITION UNTIL THE new GOP 2000 and NOW: Minnesota 09.
Will we PERMIT them to hold this state HOSTAGE to GOP terrorism? Deliberately they are screwing Minnesota with IMPUNITY.
Everyone in this state should DEMAND the GOP release our senate seat. REFUSE to elect any Republican UNLESS the 3-judge panel findings ARE certified so our governance can go on.
ANY PARTY allowed to HOLD and entire state HOSTAGE should be viewed by EVERYONE as TANTAMOUNT TO what IRAN did to America 30-years ago,

On March 2, the judicial panel fined Coleman $7,500 and said it may be willing to force Coleman to pay Franken's legal costs for the delay.

There should be no "may be willing to" -- it should be simply Coleman will be ordered to
