Quote of the Day

Speaking of Franken, it increasingly looks like he will win his campaign to be Senator of Minnesota over Norm Coleman.

Here's FiveThirtyEight's take on the defeated Coleman's next moves;

"Let's be frank: Norm Coleman doesn't have much of a future in electoral politics. Defeated Presidential candidates sometimes have nine lives, but defeated Senatorial candidates rarely do, and in his career running for statewide office, Coleman has lost to a professional wrestler, beaten a dead guy, and then tied a comedian. He doesn't have much to lose by fighting this to its bitter conclusion. But it's hard to envision how he'll come up with enough ballots to overtake Franken."
