    yeah but he was a comedic commentator.. who cares that he actually knows a lot about politics.. he is funny.. we cant have comedians in office.. congress itself is already enough of a joke

    You only violated a technicality ! This is breaking news and you obviously did not have any intent to break the BN rules. The very worst thing that you should be charged with is premature/anticipatory thread creation. And since we are not in Iranistan that was not a capital offense.

    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?
    The seat was vacant, and still is..pending Pawlentey's actions, and perhaps other legal injunctions

    I think a lot of people are prematurely judging Franken. His abilities as a Senator remain to be seen. He may be an idiotic choice to some for various reasons, but he is ultimately the choice of the people and their decision should be respected as should the Democratic process.

    Some of us are old enough to remember when Ronald Reagan The Actor was sent to Washington and a bit less than half of the electorate said that an actor could never make a decent or viable president. Some people actually belieive that Ron was an ok president even though he was a grade B actor. Franken being at least an A- 'ha ha man ' who knows he may end up losing some of his liberalism and be ok.

    There will be no other legal actions. I just watched a Coleman press conference, and he has conceded the race. It is all over now.

    The Associated Press: GOP's Coleman concedes, sending Franken to Senate

    Republican Norm Coleman has conceded to Democrat Al Franken in Minnesota's contested Senate race, ending a nearly eight-month recount and court fight. Coleman conceded at a news conference in St. Paul, a few hours after a unanimous Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Tuesday the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian and liberal commentator should be certified the winner.

    Franken's presence in the Senate would give the Democrats control of 60 seats, enough to overcome any Republican filibuster if they stay united.
