First of all, what? They're cute and all, waving their imaginary club around, but what prey tell can Republicans do about it if the Senate does seat Al Franken? Second, it doesn't look like Norm Coleman is going to be able to win this thing, and it has been three months since the election. Shouldn't Minnesota have a Senator, even if it is only an interim appointment?
After the behavior of Republicans in the House yesterday--assuming it is duplicated in the Senate--I'd tell the GOP to go piss up a rope at this point. What's the point of being in power if you don't use it a bit? Sure, we don't need to be quite the butt-holes that Republicans were when they had it all, but we don't have to lay down and take it anymore either.
. . .Meanwhile, in the GOP’s efforts to see that Coleman repopulate that office, the Senate Republican conference sent a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, urging him to not seat Al Franken. . .
