The clowns belong to circuses, not to Senate.
Otherwise, if we elect clowns to Senate, we make the Senate a circus.
“Good luck with that”

It's amazing the comments I've heard from people who voted for Franken. Not ONE of them focussed on the issues, or even Franken. Each person I talked to either mentioned Bush, Coleman's personality (really? anyone would think there's a worse personallity than Franken?), or the % of votes Coleman had with the President.
Speaking on that last point: I don't know if voters realize this, but the President doesn't vote in the Senate, so exactly how they determine if a vote is WITH or AGAINST the president I would like to know. I'm sure some are pretty clear, but there are so many that both parties agree on, I'de be curious to find out where they get those stats. Also.. he is a republican, and therefore would probably vote that way a high percentage of the time. I mean, use your head!! Do you really think Franken's % for Liberal votes is going to be any lower??
I also noticed that the first few adds said 93%. then later they were 90%, then 85%, and at the end of the campaign, they were 75%. I think this goes back to my first question.. how do they make that determination? Obviously Franken had no clue, because the # kept changing.
Also, did anyone bother to ask WHAT those votes were for or against? You'de think the details would be important. If the vote was for something you agree with, does it matter if it's also WITH the President?
It's clear that so many voters just don't think!
