    Coleman concedes Minnesota Senate race after court decision

    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - BREAKING: Minnesota’s highest court rules for Al Franken - Blogs from CNN.com

    Title speaks for itself.. looks like it is time for Pawlenty to step up to the plate here.

    edit. and let me guess this is a breaking news violation because CNN posts its political breaking news in what is labeled a blog page??

    That I am aware of, which is why it is time for him to step up to the plate

    Might be a bit trickier than that. Pawlenty said he'd sign the certification if the court "ordered" him to.

    When you can't win an election outside of the south or mountain west, the answer to your problems is NOT "more of the same, but LOUDER!!!"

    I don't see a direct quote or link to an article of him saying these things. All I see is you saying in your blog that he did. Not that I doubt you, but it's nice to have something more concrete than a blog, let alone your own personal one.

    EDIT: Actually, nevermind. I found a transcript of it.

    PAWLENTY: I’m going to follow the direction of the court, John. We expect that ruling any day now. I also expect them to give guidance and direction as to the certificate of election. I’m prepared to sign it as soon as they give the green light.
    So your assertions are a bit disingenuous, wouldn't you say? He said that he was following the direction of the court, and was waiting for the green light. You make it sound as if he's refusing to do so unless the court orders him to do so.

    It's a BN rules violation because:
    1. You didn't quote any part of it in your OP,
    2. You didn't offer approximately 4 lines of your own commentary to start off a discussion,
    3. Even though it's CNN, it's a blog, not an actual news article.

    Its time for him to stop whining like a little bitch.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    1) I quoted the articles title, at the time it was not more than 2 sentences long since it was umm breaking..

    2) I offered commentary that started the discussion, observe the input prompted by my statement that it was time for pawlenty to step up to the plate. ~4 is just that approximately.. instead of 100 lines 1 is a good approximation,

    3) it is a political news ticker, despite the actual page address. I dont pick where CNN posts its breaking news.

    4) I dont care.

    Then you won't care when the mods change it or move it to a more appropriate forum.
