Long Time Coming

Al Franken is finally headed to the Senate. It's silly how long this whole thing took. We pretty much had to wait till Norm Coleman was too embarrassed or tired to drag it out anymore.

But the Minnesota Supreme Court says Al won. The Minnesota governor says he'll issue the election certificate. And Norm Coleman sounds like he won't try to take his case to the federal courts.

Congratulations to Al Franken. I hope he remains the Al we know and love, even if he's now a member of the world's most elite club.

I thought of you when I saw the news.
Who knew it was possible for a politician to get embarrassed enough! :)
