Believe it or not I generally agree. I am a lifelong Democrat and voted for Coleman. I don't find Franken quite as scary as you do, but as far as I can see he has NO relevant credentials, nor any inclination or ability to build consensus. Coleman is a reasonably effective, centrist Senator, and he's such a whore when it comes to bowing to public opinion that he'll presumably be even more centrist in an Obama-led, democratic-majority government.Originally posted by: Genx87
Forced recount. Sending franken to DC embrasses me as a Minnesotan. Imagine your state sending sean hannity or rush limbaugh as your senator? A bomb throwing a hole as your representative? Then tack on this ridiculous tax amendment and I this is the first time I am seriously questioning the sanity of my fellow citizens.
