There are no voters left to persuade. But as Minnesota's U.S. Senate race heads toward a statewide recount, the bare-knuckle fight between Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken continues like Election Day had never come and gone.Seems like Al Franken is channeling Al Gore in counting the votes until they favor himself. Of course, as we are now seeing in California, what with the angry, white, gay, racist, anti-Prop 8 mobs...when liberals don't get their way total anarchy awaits right around the corner. BTW, nice to see that the liberal media is doing their part to make sure Franken wins by failing to mention that Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, whose job it is to watch over these proceedings, is like Franken, a liberal Democrat with ties to fraud-riddled Democrat group ACORN. Nice.
"Franken campaign attempts to stuff ballot box at the last minute," blared a Monday news release from the Coleman campaign. That came just two days after Team Franken characterized a Coleman legal filing as a "sneak attack to stop counting of ballots."
Election Day, which once promised relief from months of mudslinging, now stands simply as the day the race shifted from the paid airwaves to the legal arena. Both campaigns are still furiously pumping out news releases, calling news conferences, recruiting volunteers and pressing donors for cash to carry on the fight.
After the two candidates spent nearly $40 million combined - most of it on ads tarring the other - Coleman leads by about 200 votes out of almost 3 million cast. An automatic recount is to start next week.
