    Does no one remember what it was like before those rules were adopted?

    Whatever, I said my piece on it. I don't have anything on the topic itself so I'll bow out now

    Idiot? I daresay Al Franken has at least the intellect you do. He is committed to honorably serving his country, despite his shady past as a comedian. I suspect all the "idiots" you see just happen to be Democrats.

    By the way, this is obviously breaking news, and I think Jerry is making a fool of himself carping about the fine print.

    The GOP lowered the bar admitting idiots to public office when the shrub became president....I can't fault the DEMS for taking advantage of the situation.

    Al Franken was a fairly influential political commentator for twelve years before the election, anyway, not merely a transplanted comedian.

    we all do at one time or another, and Jerry, tho talented in that respect, is far from being the champion fool....

    Not only that, but he entertained troops in Iraq several times, when the war was so hot the USO couldn't get anyone to go. He's a solid guy, and will make a fine senator.

    and as a bonus, he has a low opinion of Rush Limbaugh....so he must at least be smarter than a dittohead...

    How is being a comedian a "shady past"? Or is there something I am unaware of in his past?

    Next few days should be interesting. Will Pawlenty actually sign the election certificate? Will Norm Coleman realize he is pretty much unelectable? How many jokes at Coleman's expense will happen the next few days? How many times will the right bitch about a comedian in the senate, and the same day praise Reagan, an actor from President?

    I exercised good faith in trying to adhere to the rules (which I do care about).. I even went back and edited it when i realized the link reflected an address to the word "blog" in it. before you decided to pounce and totally derail the entire thread with your crap - that is what i dont care about.

    As soon as there was a link to a non blog source, I posted it, and I intended to despite your input. so why don't we stop making an issue of it, if you dont like it report me, ill get the points, and we can move on with actually discussing the thread itself...

    A congratulations sounds about right.
    Well it's seems about the right time Minnoesota had someone representing it in Congress especially at a climate like this.
    Who was standing in their place whilst the two were fighting it out in court?
