He should have blasted off a gun next to the heads of the ballot re-counters!

This is a horrible defeat for the Tea Party because now they've lost their "I'm not a racist because some of my best candidates are black" card.

Republican tears

"Being a Congressman, he is one of 535, now he can do whatever he wants - look at the impact that Sarah Palin had after the loss in 2008."

TV's Vinnie: STILL doesn't beat the record held by Minnesota's Norm Coleman. He had epic butt rage for months and months, just to keep Al Franken out of DC for as long as possible.

As terrible as the fiasco was, keeping him out of the Senate was pretty damned significant coontil he took his seat the Democrats lacked their super-majority) and I don't blame him as much because there was a reason for stall tactics. This is a different story and if West took it that far for no reason other than personal attention it would be just disgusting because the status of his seat simply does not matter.

The worst thing about this was his concession message, that basically says he lost because of fraud and the system is preventing him from proving it (notably the high evidentiary burden) and that he "prays he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity".

Noam Chimpsky: The pay-off had to be in the millions. I guess the fraud was so bad that it would have destroyed the democratic process to expose it.

I'd ask you for a source, but you'll refuse to provide one since you're pulling those allegations out of your ass.

He always seemed like a bizarro dilbert.

Sure enough. Take his picture with a film camera. Develop the film. Look at the negative.

He's some sort of dilbert.
