Too Close Not To Recount
Apparently not. The results-so-far, at least, are serious. There are less than 400 votes separating Franken and Coleman, and a recount is automatic. And here's what's really interesting:
Coleman is trying to convince Franken to waive his right to the recount. He's citing "too much cost" -- about $86,000.00 -- as an excuse.
Is he fucking serious? After the tab this election just ran up -- what, somewhere in the billions was it? -- he's "concerned" about a measly 86 grand? I thought it was Al Franken who was the comedian.
Psst...Norm...any fool can run for office. All you need for that is money and a PR machine. But if you want to make your living by making people laugh, you need to have talent.
Frank-en, Frank-en, Frank-en...
UPDATE (7:20 pm): And the gap is closing -- 232 votes and getting closer...
