Too Close Not To Recount

Whew! When Al Franken said he was gonna jump into the senatorial race for Minnesota, I bet a lot of people thought he was just taking his dog out for a walk to pee on Coleman's lawn.

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...

Tee hee. I'm lovin' it. Hey, we've moved. New Prez, CHANGE, we decided it was time. Besides which, Blogger has Miko cast out - can't blog, can't even comment. This has happened before, but this time we're done with Blogger. We've moved to WP. Our new home is KONNICHI WA, Y'ALL. Don't be a stranger.
