Just like Florida in 2000, the state of Minnesota is gearing up for a recount. Not for the presidential election, but rather its U.S. Senate Race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken. Right now the margin is a mere 206 votes in favor of Coleman, who is the incumbent Republican senator. They are now recounting the ballouts to ensure their accuracy.
This is going to be a huge mess, I can just see it now. I’m sure there will be lawsuits, and both parties will scream “fraud!”. We can only hope that Coleman turns up the winner, because we Republicans certainly don’t want to lose a senate seat to that nut job Franken. I am personally very surprised this race is even close. I can’t imagine how people justify voting for someone who would no doubt take his job in the senate as a joke. He’s said before that if elected, his first action in senate would be to push for a “quickie impeachment” of Bush before his term ended. I realize some people don’t like Bush and that he could never do that, but that’s just nonsense. Imagine if a republican senator said he would push for a “quickie impeachment” of Obama after he is inaugarated. There would be mass chaos, riots, and all kinds of horrible things.
So what do you think? It’s time to voice your opinion in our poll:
