Franken Wins! Again!

Maybe we can get the man seated.


Not. So. Fast.

Has blogger Chris Bowers approved him yet?

I'd like to see the list of how he would have voted since the Civil War before I support seating him.

Until then, there's no difference in him and Coleman.

W00T! Finally....

Coleman has a conference scheduled at 4 today, wonder if he'll concede or if he'll continue raising money for the Dems?

This is truly a case of dumb

This is truly a case of dumb and dumber. I feel bad for the people of MN.

Those people voted for a candidate

who won fair and square. What a burden democracy can be!

PS Coleman may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, as evidenced by his misguided efforts to subvert the will of the people in Minnesota, but Franken is smart as a whip. You may not agree with is progressive politics, but that doesn't make him dumb.

been waiting for this since Valentine's Day 2007

Not counting candidates that employed me, I don't think that I worked for anyone as hard as I worked for Al. Glad to see that this mess is finally over!

I always wanted to be the avenging cowboy hero—that lone voice in the wilderness, fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth and justice. - Bill Hicks

Congrats to Franken

Finally. Another Senate vote for real health care reform, for dealing with climate change, and for rationality in general.

The truth, with jokes.

I'm sick of assholes showing up here filled with sarcasm and insults. Betsy, would you please ban the IP address for The Penguin? Thanks.


I'm doing my best

which often isn't anywhere near good enough. But at least I'm trying, which is more than I can say for you. And if I'm wrong ... if this really is your best ... well that's a problem.

You're welcome to create another account, and I encourage you to use your real name. I'm too old and worn out to put up with this kind of crap on my own blog ... and unlike the Batman, I actually can make you go away, at least for awhile.

I am a huge Rolling Stones fan

I was raised on the Stones. I love this video, but Al Franken's butt is much to big to pass as Mick Jagger's scrawny behind. :D

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Minnesotans should feel proud

But hey, this will probably be the best paying gig Franken ever had. What a complete joke! Enjoy your 4 years, won't get to steal a second term.

Government crises are usually manufactured to pick your pocket.

I don't use the left-wing "Google machine"

Guess I was just so astounded by the fact that Minnesotans would elect such a buffoon to either house of Congress that I slipped up on the term...or maybe it was just wishful thinking?

Anyway, thanks for the correction James. Gotta get back to work so I can pull the wagon for the rest of you! I actually pay my taxes!

That's funny.

Fortunately, my laptop has a prime directive to self-destruct before opening any links from that sad sight.

Happy July 4th ... are you coming to my party? Hope to see you here.

Reagan and Thompson...

Never spewed profane vulgarities at the people they disagreed with. The fact is were it not for the utter failure of Jimmy Carter, there might not have been a President Reagan. That is what should concern Democrats now as Obama is quite Cater-esque in his policies.

Apples and Oranges

Equalizer, today isn't yesterday. Today, the media leads the charge for the libs. They direct the mood of the country. They decide what the values and the mores and morals of our country should be today.

If you think not, think again.

Dick Cheney did

He told someone to fuck off on the floor of the Senate.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Visions of the past

Everything today is okay because of what was said or happened yesterday.

My god. Is that weak or what?

Didn't say that

Not justifying anything. Equalizer called Al Franken a buffoon and I simply said I felt the same way about Reagan and Thompson. Equalizer then claimed that Thompson and Reagan didn't use profanity or vulgarities and I simply reminded him that the Vice President of the United States(Cheney) not only dropped the F bomb, but he did so on the floor of the Senate directing it at a United States Senator.

I didn't relay that to justify Al Franken's past behavior, but to make sure Equalizer remembers that his conservative vice president displayed far worse behavior while acting as Vice President, not while performing as a professional comedian.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Thanks for the invite...

but I will be celebrating INdependence Day...not Dependence Day. J/K! Having said that, thank you for your service, James. One day, it would be interesting to have a brew with you and explore how each of us developed our divergent poitical views. Happy 4th!

Be safe.
