Scerpes: If you can't win an election, just keep adding votes until you do. It's the Democrat mantra.

THIS.

We saw this pattern emerge during the 2000 vote "recount" in Florida too. Each time the votes were "recounted," more votes kept appearing on the Democrat side. It's the same deal here. Coleman won the initial count, and then, voila! more "Democrat votes" were found in the recount. Wait, what?

I guess since libs can't compete in the realm of ideas, they resort to just stuffing the farking ballot box.

Random Guy: MaxxLarge: Hm. Why is it that asshole Neocons only ever get all up-in-arms self-righteous about contested election results when they favor the Democrat?

Wait are you saying that if Coleman had won instead you would not be up in arms and contesting the results? Imma gonna call BS on that one. Psst your hypocrisy is showing.


If Coleman had won in the recount, without any of the shenanigans he tried to pull throughout it (i.e., trying to disqualify votes from regions that vote Democratic, contesting votes that were clearly for Franken, etc.), then I would sit back and accept the voters' decision. I wouldn't be happy about it, but I'd accept it.

Don't question why those votes weren't counted in the first place. It's the Lizard People mantra.

Scerpes: Lundah: Jesse White still has to sign for Burris, which if he doesn't do on his own, Burris will probably drag him into court to force him. Tim Pawlenty sure as hell isn't going to sign off on Franken's certification until Coleman has exhausted all of his legal options.

Why does the Governor have to sign for Franken? He's not being appointed. Is that a Minnesota rule or a Senate rule?


From what I understand, the Governor and Secretary of State must both sign to certify the election results. I believe that's MN state law.

I'm not familiar with MN state law on this point, but the signed certificate is a Senate requirement.

To my knowledge, Burris has been legally appointed according to IL state law. The Senate will not seat him because it requires the two signatures to seat a senator.

Burris got the job fair and square and legally and should be appointed, despite the obvious racism issues that the senate has against him.
Franken had to have Moveon.org manage the recount for him and suddenly find a bunch of votes that coincidentally switched it to their side (nothing to see here folks, move along).
Franken not only doesnt deserve the seat, he should be prosecuted for voter fraud and election tampering.


/can we prosecute Franken for being a douchebag as well?

More Democratic votes pop up during a recount because of the types of people whose ballots are most likely to be rejected due to mistakes: low-income, very little education, English as a 2nd language, etc. Those people generally vote Democrat (or for Lizard People).

In the FL recount, a large part of the problem was that we were dealing with myopic senior citizens who either 1) couldn't read the freakin' ballot properly & kept voting for Buchanan instead of Gore or 2) weren't strong enough to punch the chad all the way through the paper.

Regardless of all the recount democrat republican he said she said BS, Franken is a twat. I dunno about Burris, but my guess is that he is a twat too. So seat the twats, don't seat the twats, whatever. They are both probably more entertaining that John Kerry, the King of all twats.

DarnoKonrad: They'll seat him. This is the most ado about nothing in a long time.

All because Reid has a big mouth and poor political nose.


I think Reid will come out looking good. Polls show most people agree with not seating Burris. Reid probably knows in the end he can't actually stop it, so it's Congress' favorite kind of gesture: an empty one.

And the "more votes than voters" thing is bullshiat. Yes, more votes show up, but that's EXACTLY THE POINT of a recount, to look at rejected votes to determine if they are rejected wrongly. That would be like saying the recount is invalid because it didn't agree with the election night count.

Yeah, that majority Republican canvasing board was stuffing the ballot box for Franken.

Have you noticed that the two people who have mentioned being from MN in this thread are the ones calmly restating the fact that the law is being followed and that this is not a big crisis? For the rest of you farkers this is just entertainment anyway.

I've been watching this thing pretty closely and haven't seen the same bias in contesting votes from Franken's side. Even Nate over at fivethirtyeight.com has details of both side's legal challenges and there is a definite pattern to Coleman in trying to discount Franken votes that should absolutely be counted. For instance, Coleman tried to disqualify over 300 absentee ballots--all for Franken--because they weren't dated. However, he had no problem with undated ballots that were for him. Franken's team pointed out that there was no MN law stating the ballots needed to be dated, therefore all should be counted--and they were.

MN has been incredibly above-board with the recount. I haven't seen any inconsistent rulings on similar ballot marks, especially when the election board was streaming it live & showing actual ballots. The courts have been even-handed, too, by consulting existing precedents whenever they can.

Please cite your "missing votes suddenly appearing" and "votes counted twice" examples. The only missing votes I know of were the 133 physical ballots that were lost between election day & the recount.

If you're too stupid to have your vote counted appropriately, then you don't deserve to have your voice heard. You can't jump in with a lawyer after the fact and claim that this anonymous ballot was yours. That's called tampering with an election. Granny voted for Buchanan. Deal with it.

Haven't we already gone through that Minnesota State Law was followed, and the canvassing board was actually made up of 2 Republicans, 2 Independents (which, if I remember correctly leaned more Republican?), and 1 Democrat?) Both sides challenged ballots that were clearly for the other candidate, but Coleman challenged more. A lot of the votes for Franken came from absentee ballots that were originally improperly rejected. The recount is over, but Minnesota state law allows one candidate to challenge it in the courts. Coleman has decided to take this route. Since legal challenges have not been resolved, Minnesota cannot state that Al Franken is the elected Senator according to their state law, nor can they say that Norm Coleman is. Because of this, neither Franken nor Coleman can be seated. The Burris mess is a different animal, but he should be seated as the governor carried out his duties as outline by Illinois State Law and the United States Constitution. Burris is, however, an idiot for accepting an appointment from Blago.

/I wonder where Orange Crush is. We ripped him a new one the other night.

It doesn't matter. Logic doesn't work on most of the hardcore conservatives that post here. If you defeat every argument they have one night, they'll be back the next posting the same arguments again. That happens with every thread on the housing crisis. Even the more serious, less trollish conservatives do it a lot.

I think it's the opposite of a reversal. Since the results were the same, it could have exactly no effect on the recount.

You can argue they shouldn't have counted those, but it could have been anything BUT a reversal.

That is just a lie. There were NOT more votes than voters in any Minnesota precinct. That claim comes from the fact that there were more votes discovered during the recount than were recorded on election night.

But there were NOT more votes than people who signed in to vote on election day.

There were huge problems with voter suppression and ballot counting irregularities reported in Ohio. One county that had to do a recount found that the ballots, which were not supposed to have been handled or otherwise manipulated since election day, were already grouped by presidential vote.

Of course, those "extra" votes, assuming they exist and you're not just talking out your tukhis, certainly MUST be attributable to democratic voters, right? I mean, if there are extra votes, they couldn't be attributable to votes for Coleman; all are clearly the result of Democratic shenanigans.

"If you can't win the election, obstruct steal it." It's the Republican Democrat mantra.

Coleman's lawyers and various right wing pundits have picked a small handful of ballots out of the thousands reviewed by the canvassing board that are in fact inconsistent. The problem is that's all they've found and it isn't enough to overturn this. They want to mislead everyone into thinking that the handful they found are just the tip of the iceberg when in fact they're the whole thing.

The 133 lost ballots won't overturn the race either. Norm's only hope is the 650 rejected absentee ballots he cherry picked for a third look. If he manages to get them counted Franken will undoubtedly be allowed to bring forward a similar amount of ballots from the reject bin, and he'll maintain his lead.

My guess is that Norm will lose his case in court and decide not to persist in the appeals process citing a lack of funds, giving the Republicans a "they stole it" mantra for the faithful to chant for the next 6 years.

vernonFL: Both Burris and Franken should be seated. Burris was appointed by the governor. Franken was declared the official winner.

What is the problem?


Neither have been certified, yet. Burris hasn't been certified because apparently the Illinois Secretary of State refuses to, and Franken hasn't been certified since MN can't certify it until the legal battles are done.

So the Senate is correct in neither seating Burris nor Franken. They'll just have to operate with 98 Senators until the states in question resolve the situations.

...what the hell is Coleman doing?

He lost, and no matter how closely, shouldn't he submit himself to the will of the people?

I mean, the conservative mantra seems to be "the vote is the vote so sit down and shut up." Or, at least, it was.



/If you want to know why monitored, non-partisan re-counts tend to favor Democratic candidates, perhaps you should look a lot more closely at the people who do the initial counts.

And they'll be right. We stole it. We stole that election, right under the noses of months of public scrutiny, of the Republican election board, and the live webcams.

See, cons, in the last four years we have learned quite a lot. Howard Dean, Al Gore, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and every other Democrat with influence - have all been quietly working together to build an unstoppable liberal political machine nationwide.

We stole this. This was just the beginning. In two years, we'll steal more elections, and then we'll have our supermajority. In two years, Barack Obama will throw his executive power around like George W. Bush does only in his wildest power-crazed dreams.

And there is not a goddamned thing that you can do about it. America is ours now.

We will raise your taxes, and use the money to provide free healthcare for illegal immigrants. We'll ruin Bush's faith-based initiatives, and give federal money to the ACLU, the NAACP, the Black Panthers, and ACORN.

Gay marriage? In your church? Oh yes. Because we're passing a new civil rights bill, and anyone who doesn't comply will be taxed even more. We'll also be teaching youir children about it in primary school, where any talk of creationism or intelligent design will be banned, along with Christmas decorations.

Oh, and hold your guns tight when you go to sleep tonight, because we *will* take them as soon as we feel like it. The auto industry? We'll nationalise it. Same with the banks and the oil companies. We'll celebrate that last one with a state visit from Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, right after we sign new agreements.

Gitmo? We're freeing them all, and they'll be moving to your neighbourhood. Right after we take away your guns.

In short, you cons are farked, and all you can do is moan and complain until we reinstate the Fairness Doctrine. And there is nothing you can do to stop us.

Besides, what are you going to do, move to Canada? Europe? Don't make me laugh. You're our biatches now.
