Al Franken has been declared the winner in the Minnesota Senate race, though Pawlenty and his secretary of state still has to sign off on it for Franken to take office—which they won’t, because Republicans are cheaters. Don’t miss the spectacle of nearly the entire Minnesota Supreme Court recusing themselves from Coleman’s inevitable appeal.

“If you asked me what I would do, I would step back. I just think the healing process is so important. The possibility of any change of this magnitude in the voting system we have would be so remote — that would be my judgment. Mr. Franken will decide what Mr. Franken will do.”
Norm Coleman, two days after election day.

UPDATE: Minnesota’s secretary of state is elected, not appointed, and is actually a Democrat now, Mark Ritchie. regrets the error. Mistakes were made.
