Congratulations Al Franken

Coleman finally drops his nonsensical appeals. Now the Democrats need to start getting some shit done.....universal health care, out of Iraq now, close Guantanamo, etc.

GOP's Coleman concedes, sending Franken to SenateBy BRIAN BAKST – 15 minutes ago

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Norm Coleman has conceded to Democrat Al Franken in Minnesota's contested Senate race, ending a nearly eight-month recount and court fight.

Coleman conceded at a news conference in St. Paul, a few hours after a unanimous Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Tuesday the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian and liberal commentator should be certified the winner.

Franken's presence in the Senate would give the Democrats control of 60 seats, enough to overcome any Republican filibuster if they stay united.
