The Low Road

Al Franken wrote jokes for Saturday Night Live for years. He was entertaining and performed well at his craft.

The Senate recount in Minnesota however is turning into a bad SNL sketch.

This man has lost to Senator Coleman three times now but has made it abundantly clear that he will stop at nothing to steal the Senate seat.

The more repulsive fact is that the state of Minnesota is complying with Franken's ludicrous requests.

He won two key rulings this week: The state canvassing board will now allow previously rejected absentee ballots which could exceed 1,500 and they have also decided to include 133 ballots that were "misplaced" on election day.

The Franken team even produced a six minute video entitled "Recount", presumably to sway the committee.

As it stands today, Coleman leads Franken by 192 votes, according to the Secretary of State’s official count.

I can not even begin to imagine the backlash a Republican would receive if he were engaging in this behavior.

The media and the Democrat Party would tear him to shreds. They would draw undeserved comparisons to W's 2000 victory through the courts.

Maybe Franken should move to Illinois and throw his hat in the ring there.

I wonder if that state is one of the seventeen in which he cheated on his taxes.
