Crazy, craziness...I doubt it will end by Friday as they are hoping. What a pathetic display of "democracy" ...

It sounds simple enough, hold a vote, then count them, geez.

As Ramsey County Judge Kathleen Gearin inspected a ballot with a full Coleman oval and initials near a partially filled Franken oval, she was clearly uncertain.

"I can't tell whether it means they're trying to tell us they goofed when they started voting for Franken," said Gearin, one of the board's five members.

The democrats are trying to hijack the Senate election in Minnesota. Just like they tried to hijack the presidential election in Florida in 2000 and successfully hijacked that one in Washington state a few years back.

It's what they do.

They were showing some of the ballots that were being fought over. A pencil dot in the oval of one of the candidates, and the other oval filled in completely. The candidate with the dot is arguing that the voter "meant" to vote for him, ect, ect.

Any ballot that's not filled out properly should be thrown out.

Comrade crap again? Are you enlightened or progressive? Or just a kneejerker? It's funny how you jump on others for demeaning someone and yet feel free to do it yourself. Show me one place where Franken says he is a communist. In fact, show me where anyone other than you did it, Dick.


I jump on others for demeaning someone only after said 'others' have deigned to lecture about correct social intercourse here, and then behave in the opposite manner, thus demonstrating their hypocrisy. You are an easy target in that regard, my friend.

BTW, if you think I am pissed off now, you are wrong. You are like a liittle gnat that keeps flying around ones head, annoying while it's there and completely forgotten when it finally leaves.


LOL. Yeah, I can tell. Thanks for ANOTHER lecture on the social interaction here, you hypocrite.

I used to think Derek pretty much had the market cornered on hypocrisy, but after watching you post for a while now, he is a rank amateur. Im amazed almost daily on some of the things you say here. This is all bullshiat, "Dick". You only jump on select others...namely people that hold the opposite political view as you. Ive never, ever seen you jump on anyone you agree with. That, my friend, is hypocrisy and you are a master of it.

After today I'm sure RBK just says anything he knows to be completely and outrageously untrue. There are all kinds of people who get their kicks in strange ways. He is obviously one of them.

Gosh, aren't you going to call me a "d-ckhead" or an "a--hole" today? This after likewise lecturing me, and others, as to polite decorum here?

Gosh, how is he "stealing" it? Be specific, please. I know it sucks to count all the votes, but unfortunately, they matter.

Why would I call you a dickhead or a-hole? As for lecturing others on polite decorum, please show me where Ive done that. Ive been lectured plenty, both publicly and in private.

Sounds like I hit the mark with my comments either way. That was the point.

Haha... No, I was always more of a pull hitter...

Al's son was my back-up at second base. There's a chapter in Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot that discusses the team in some detail as he was working on that book non-stop that summer.


Not to get off topic...Second base was a great position to play - lots of action. I loved every minute of it!

Yeah, I dont know why its taking Minn. so long to count votes. It doesnt make much sense..maybe its some procedural thing or just the time it takes to manually go over all the ballots.

Why? Im not a big Franken fan, but it seems that if more people elect the man, then he should win.

At least if Franken wins it'll piss off Bill O'Reilly which is a good thing.
