Oh Baba--You have done it again. This is a pip of a video! By the way, what's the latest on that whiney obstructionist Norm Coleman keeping Senator Franken from taking his office and bringing some comic relief to the entertainment big leagues known as the US Senate?

Is this latest "trial" suppossed to be over or begin by the end of the week? Maybe by spring time Al can finally do what the majority (albeit by a squeaky thin margin) of voters elected him to do.

(((Poet!!!))) Good to see you. Well, ummm, virtually.

I think the GOP strategery is to drag the recount out as far and wide (and deep!) as possible and then some, in order to keep Franken from tilting the balance of power, albeit by a squeaky thin margin. (Hmmmm, that sounds familiar somehow.)

It's quite pathetic watching Coleman do what he does best yet again, i.e., slip and slide and slither, and take a firm stance on the position du jour that seems most beneficial, until it's not. Then he does a big 180 and scorns himselves.

As one (or more) wag(s) have pointed out, what's probably really scaring Norm is the prospect of having to do real work for a living.

I can be cranky or I can cry. Tonight, I choose cranky! *g*
