Didn’t have time to note it yesterday but, as everyone now knows, the Minnesota SC decided unanimously for Franken, Coleman conceded and Pawlenty signed Franken’s certification.
I’m a serious fan of Franken…very smart, very funny and doesn’t suffer fools. His books on Limbaugh and on the rightwing media are exceptional. I suspect he’ll keep a surprisingly low profile for a year or two (he says that is his intention) but up the road, there are going to be some very good speeches and comments from this man.
Further, there’s a history to this Senate seat in Minnesota which makes Franken’s win over Coleman really delicious.
