Coleman razor thin lead over Franken

In an automatic recount Republican Coleman has a 0.02% edge over Al Franken, the unfunny commedic writer. That's 2 hundredths of 1%. A third candidate who syphoned off mainly Republican votes is seen as a potential spoiler in this as yet undertermined race.

With the liberals commanding so much of the federal government as of this election cycle. The importance of the Minnesota senate race can not be overstated.

Pelosi & her ILK have already dispatched hundreds of lawyers to look for hanging chads.
I'm not making this up

As of one hour ago, the difference in the count has narrowed to a mere 475 votes out of about 3 million cast. I don't doubt you are correct. Probably 2 lawyers for each of the 475 votes.

Al Franken-stien is about 25 light years to the left of Hugo Chavez, meaning you can bet this contest will "somehow" turn out in his favor.

I predict the Freak will steal this one in the recount.

And then give credit to his almighty god The Punk.

Even if Coleman wins, is that going to make a difference? The Republicans will spend the next four years going out to get coffee and sweeping-up around the capital building. And IMO they deserve it! Weakness invites aggression.

Coleman could make th edifference between 59 dems & 60 dems in the senate

thats is a BIG differce

60 makes them fillibuster proof....

Good point, but don't hold your breath waiting for it. Besides, even when the Republicans had the majority, the Demoncrats were still in charge. There was a report that said Nanny Pelosi and Harry Reed were having a sit-down with Joe Leiberman and might take his committe position away for being a "traitor". Maybe they'll push him over to our side?

I think Mr. Leiberman won't feel beholden to the Democrats. They did not support him and he came back even stronger on the national scene. I certain the Clintons, although they went through the motions, aren't terribly plaesed with losing power. Hillary was a Republican in college. She may yet change her stance with this humbling experience. But I'll never trust her.
