Franken Steals Election – No Protests

From an elated Associated Press:

Democrat Franken wins protracted Minn. Senate race

By Brian Bakst, Associated Press Writer

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Al Franken refused his rival’s calls for an election night concession last November, choosing instead to begin vote counting and courtroom haggling that stretched almost eight months and ultimately landed him a seat in the U.S. Senate.

Franken’s victory over Republican Norm Coleman gives Democrats 60 Senate seats, the critical number needed to overcome Republican filibusters. When Franken is seated, which could come as early as next week, his party will have a majority not reached on either side of the aisle in some three decades.

Coleman conceded the election hours after a unanimous state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Franken — who moved into politics with books poking fun at conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh — should be certified the winner. In doing so, Coleman pulled the plug on a bitter election that was decided by 312 votes out of almost 2.9 million cast…

So we have yet another election stolen by the Democrats. (In fact, by the very same people who stole the gubernatorial election in Washington State.)

It’s just like in Iran. Except here we are so resigned to it that nobody even bothers to protest in the streets.

Indeed, the US citizenry has been so cowed our ruling mullahs don’t even need a Basij, apart from ACORN.

Note, too, that just like in Iran there was never any thought of doing the election over.

Now, just like in Iran and other third world countries, if a Democrat ends up close in the vote he can be sure of an ultimate victory through creative ‘recounts.’  So why have a do-over?

Of course it doesn’t help that Mr. Franken is one of the least qualified and most hate-filled creatures to ever disgrace the floor of the Congress. (Though, in that respect he the perfect representative to give that party a super majority.)

Still, this latest stolen election is another sign of the death of our country as a republic. A land once ruled by laws rather than men.

We are now merely the first nation of the third world.

Which, after all, is the outcome the Democrats sought for so long.

    I beg to differ with you Steve…………the unfunny Franken was “GIVEN” the election, he did not “STEAL” it. But it can now be said that Americans are not bothered by election rigging and hooligan bargaining on the side!
    Sad…….This is not the American “I” joined the Marines to defend.

    Amazing but true…..since it’s a remarkable steep standard to reach…..Maxine Waters, Cooler Jefferson, Charlie Rangel, Barbara Boxer, Stretch Pelosi, Slow Joe, et al.

    And of course, the ultimate in affirmative action hatred and incompetance…..The Moron.

    Anyone remember the debacle in South Florida when Algore lost the election? This was what was going on…That election was NOT stolen by Bush. But try as they might…as stupid as they tried to make Florida look, they couldn’t pull it off. They’ve gotten better through the years though.

    We here in Florida couldn’t believe the way the press and libs twisted the facts in this. We knew it was all lie, but I don’t think Americans at that time were used to seeing something that flagrant at the national level. They just weren’t ready to believe so much evil existed in the good old USA. Boy! Did we get fooled!

    I think if they had gotten by with it then we would have seen what is happening now…a whole lot sooner. Bush’s win messed up their plans…big time and put them back about 8 years in their plans.

    Many of us are wiser now to their grand schemes but somehow they still found enough ‘useful idiots” to pull it off this time.

    I think that was when the last of my starry eyed naivete left me. This is an evil world we are living in today.

      If they had spent the time working on making America a better place instead of figuring out how to steal things from people who earned them, we wouldn’t be on the brink of revolution.

    So who have the dims got now in the senate, insuring their filibuster-proof majority? The pay-for-play appointee from Illinois, the turncoat from Pennsylvania, the stroke victim from South Dakota, the senile zombie from West Virginia, the criminal from too-many-to-name, and now the thief from Minnesota. ARRRGGGHHH!!!!

    I say they institute sharia law immediately in Minnesota and cut off his hands.

    Doesn’t he have a sneer you just want, so badly, to slap right off that irritating face? I can’t stand him. Luckily conservs are by and large non-violent!

    • neocon mom says:

      There was something disturbing about his weepy, Stuart Smalley monologue today about going to work for the working people of Minnesota. Can’t stand how Democrats see everyone as infantile, helpless and sitting around waiting for an elected official to save the day and make all of the important decisions for them.

  6. Douglas says:

    What needs to happen now is investigation of the corruption in the northern part of the state where votes were created out of whole cloth as well as the votes that showed up in the trunk of a car.

    Once we can prove irregularities we can invalidate the election. The hard part is going to get someone from the party political apparatus to turn. As long as they close ranks and no one tells the truth we’re screwed.

    • Helena says:

      That of course, is what’s so maddening. Where the f,*x! are the Republicans? They just rolled over and played dead. It’s infuriating.

    • pdsand says:

      I think what just happened was all those investigations were concluded, no wrongdoing was found, and appeals exhausted. Next time, though…

    • proreason says:

      Did the Minnesota Supreme Court rule on the merit of the irregularity claims or on the process itself?

      I could see them saying, “The process is x, y, followed by z. Those things happened, therefore, the outcome stands.” It seems to me that appeal courts usually rule on narrow issues of whether or not the law was followed, not so much on the merits of the case. (Example: my understanding of Miranda is that they didn’t examine whether Miranda was guilty of the crime or not, just whether the arrest process was proper.)

      So, they might have validated that the recount process was followed without addressing the obvious criminalty of people conducting the recount.

    • pdsand says:

      I’m sure that’s what went down, the board of elections was the finder of fact and all that followed was verification that the board members signed the proper forms to certify their findings.

    Wow! What a pick, huh?

    “PS: He’s a dead ringer for my commie Brother in Law too, except not as funny.”

    I’ve been throwing up and bleeding from behind the eyes since I got the news yesterday … Minnesota Rush (ing outta here ..)
