Al Franken wins Minnesota

Good elections are like fine wines - you really can't rush them. Yes, sixty two days does seem like quite a while to count votes, but you can't rush these machines you know. If only the state could have afforded those new fangled boxes that you put the slips of paper in.

This is the wonderful news that Al Franken has won the race to become senator of Minnesota by 225 votes. That's less than 0.0075 percent of the 2.8 million votes cast. This means the incumbent, the right wing Republican Norm Coleman, will be looking for work along with a large number of his constituents. Good luck to you sir.

Reid is already backpedalling on seating Franken. Sigh. Medic! Backbone transplant, stat!
