So Minnesota is the only state in the union to be without two U.S. Senators at this point in time.
At least relatively.
There is always New Jersey and West Virginia. They have Frank Lautenberg and Robert Byrd respectively.
Those two are brain dead and since their fragile minds and bodies are barely warm, their senate seats are hardly hot and you could argue that New Jersey and West Virginia have only person serving them in the United States Senate.
But as for actually having an elected person serving them, in Minnesota, nearly three months after Election Day, one of their senate seats is still in doubt and goes without a certified winner.
Incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman was originally declared the winner but after weeks of a tedious recount, his opponent, comedian and devout liberal Al Franken found many more votes for himself and disqualified many of Coleman’s votes. This brought Franken up to a lead of little more than nearly 225 votes.
Many of these Franken votes were found days after the election and some of them were even counted twice. In one case involving a heavily democratic precinct, 100 votes were found. They were all for Al Franken and they were all cast on November 3rd.
The election was held on November 4th.
But who cares. I mean they were all for Franken so why not just assume that they were legitimate votes.
Oddly, during this recount process, while some votes were being counted twice for Franken, other votes were not being counted even once for Coleman.
It is one of the reasons why the election is currently in the courts as we read this.
Attorneys for Senator Norm Coleman are trying to insure that over 4,000 absentee ballots are allowed to be included in the vote tally. For innocuous reasons these ballots were not including in subsequent counts.
One blind man who signed his name on the wrong line appeared in court and swore to the fact that he did sign the ballot and that he voted for Norm Coleman. He also asked that his vote be counted.
The attorney’s for Coleman are also arguing the fact that the recount process must accept one set of standards for the entire state.
The current election results in the Coleman versus Franken race were arrived at by using less stringent standards in heavily Democratic districts and applying higher standards in Republican districts. Such a random application of standards allows the same absentee ballot that had a signature in the wrong place to be counted for Franken but not for Coleman.
It is a similar argument that was debated during the presidential election crisis of 2000.
There, Al Gore wanted different rules applied to ballots counted in heavily Democratic Counties than were used in heavily Republican counties. But they even went a step further. The Gore people only wanted the ballots in the heavily Democratic districts recounted. They started to freak out when recounts in Republican counties were giving George W. Bush an even larger plurality than he originally had. So they said ,oh now, hold on, we only want the votes in heavily democatic counties like Dade counted. Despite liberal attempts to make double standards legal, we all know how it ended and since then, every single independent recount conducted has shown Bush to have won Florida.
So if you want to use facts, who really tried to steal that election?
But back to Minnesota. Here, although there is less attention being given to the criminal liberal conduct, the same thing is happening here that happened in Florida eight years ago.
Liberal logic is hoping that the courts will rule that double standards are a good thing and that they can pick and choose which votes can count and which votes can’t count based on where thay vote came from or who the vote was for.
Its like counting votes the same way ACORN registers voters. Republican ballots or registrations get thrown out.
But as usual, liberals are crying out for fairness and equality but what is fair and what is equal?
Is it fair to say that what disqualifies one vote in the north does not disqualify the same type of vote in the south?
Is it fair to say that Republicans must be held to a higher standard than Democrats?
No, it is not, but today’s Democrats are liberals and liberal logic is hypocritical.
So the case goes on and Minnesota continues to join West Virginia and New Jersey as the only states in the nation with only one senator representing them in the United States Senate.
For those of you who do not find the liberal recount tactics acceptable and who want to see Senator Norm Coleman continue his work in the United States Senate, please take a moment to make a donation to his campaign.
The court battle that the liberals are fighting is quite costly and being heavily funded by billionaire, liberal lion George Soros.
So any amount of financial support you can spare would go along way in fighting back and allowing Norm Coleman to continue to stand up for what is right.
A woman married three times walked into a bridal shop one day …
… and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.
“Of course, madam,” replied the sales clerk, “exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?”
The bride to be said: “A long frilly white dress with a veil.”
The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, “Please don’t take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time – for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?”
“Well,” replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk’s directness, “I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride.
You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel.
My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again.”
“What about your third husband?” asked the sales clerk.
“That one was a Democrat,” said the woman, “and every night for four years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be, but nothing ever happened.”
