When I was alot younger many years ago, back when the sleazebag was still a 'democrat', I was standing in line at the state fair with my mother and none other than Norm Coleman himself cut boldfaced in front of us. I remember my mom turning around and elbowing the slimeball as hard as she could right in the guts. And here we are, a decade and a half later, and he still hasn't learned his lesson.

That's all this recount was about. And they've succeeded already in not getting legislation passed because Al Franken wasn't there to vote! I say, if he appeals, we have a protest on the capitol steps demanding Al be seated immediately! Enough's enough!
Thank you wrote:
Is it possible Coleman STILL won't go away? An appeal by this slimeball is a definite possiblilty. The GOP will go to any lengths to keep another Democrat from being seated in the Senate. I hope I'm wrong, but I fear the GOP and Coleman feel they have nothing to lose. Coleman's reputation in this state is already irreparably harmed. He has no political future here. So any additional fallout from more obstruction can't hurt him further. And the GOP will keep funnelling national $$$ into this obstruction just to keep Al from doing our great state's business in Washington. How sad!

Rad,
Latte has nothing figured out!

I see that you cannot rise to the occasion to admit to falsely charging me about being a liar, and now you have created more falsehood about me. As the saying goes, one lie generally calls for another, and your postings show the saying is true - one lie generally does call for another.

I see that you are following Latte's erroneous thinking so that you can maintain your kangaroo judgment of your mind instead of reviewing the facts in a fair and unbiased manner.

Today, Minnesota's representatives are having an ad hoc meeting to review the massive judicial impropriety and corruption occurring at this time. You may want to attend with your kangaroo court thinking. You could probably hear attendees of the meeting describing the unlawful judicial behavior of your friends - the corrupted judges in this state.

As far as mental health, please cite your medical degree, or is this another judgment in the kangaroo court of your mind?

You and Latte do not seem to be able, by your post, to rise above your paranoid conspiracy theories.

That is akin to Latte's conspiracy theory that the Phantom ballots were stolen, and that is why the Phantom ballots don't exist.

Let's follow the facts:
1) No newspaper reports of the Phantom ballots being stolen,
2) No mention of the Phantom ballots being stolen in the Canvassing Board hearings,
3) No mention of the Phantom ballots being stolen in the three (3) judge panel hearings.

So, where does Latte get that they were stolen other than the kangaroo court of his/her mind?

Ooooh, Minnesota's representatives of what? The Flat Earth Society? Ad hoc eh? That suggests it's any old yahoo off the street with a crazy look on their face.

Where is this meeting? What time does it start? Will members of the media be there? What type of record will be compiled? Who is going to be presenting evidence of the "massive judicial impropriety and corruption occurring at this time" that you mention?

To me, accusing the Courts of "massive judicial impropriety and corruption," it almost sounds like you're certain Coleman's going to lose and you want to attach the credibility of the system and process. We know how much good that did for Ben Ginsberg.

I look forward to learning where this meeting is and will be attendees be separated from the public by anything like glass or bars or some other restraint. Keep me posted, Patricia. I'll be the one arriving in a black helicopter.

They can't just pick a winner. If it were that easy we'd have communism.

While I admire your loyalty to Coleman and appreciate your desire to dump Franken (I feel the same way about Tim Pawlenty, so, trust me, I get it), Norm's lawsuit and pending appeal was always a long shot because the State of Minnesota had to institute a recount by law. If it didn't, Franken would have sued, and won a large settlement at the expense of us, the taxpayers.

But here's the important thing, unless Coleman can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that something improper happened during the recount, the state really has little power to overturn the mandated recount.

Coleman knew it might come to this, which is why he's been raising money for an appeal. At the appeal, Coleman will have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, the judges either misread or misapplied the law. He'll have an easier time there than at the trial level, except he will still have the nasty problem of not being able to overturn the recount, which is really what Coleman needs to win the election.

I am not a member of any poletical party.Here is my opinion, I feel sorry for Norm because this guy was DFL when it comes to his advatage he change to GOP and start beating the drum with Bush, now time is changed what he can do? as always let him try another party (flip-flap). People of minnesota already decide who will be the next senator. GOOD BYE NORM!!!!!!
