Blagojevich…Resign Already!

Here’s a fantastic quote from the latest political criminal…”I will fight, I will fight, I will fight until I take my last breath. I have done nothing wrong.”

Enough already.  Resign.  You are a disgrace.  You are a criminal.  You’ve been caught.  You are an embarrassment to your party, your state, and this country.  The only remotely decent thing you could do is resign.

I am thoroughly disgusted by this.  Although, why should any of us be surprised?  He was slimy enough to try to sell the Senate Seat, why would he suddenly do the right thing now?

Franken Takes the Lead

Al Franken has taken the lead for the first time in the hotly contested Senate race in Minnesota.  My joy has apparently stirred some people up.  Guess what?  That brings me even more joy.  I find it amusing that Republicans cry that Franken has no experience to be 1 0f 100, but yet they had no qualms about Sarah Palin being second in line to push the damn button.  And don’t give me she was a damn mayor and governor.  That’s pathetic and you know it. 

I will also admit I am not a Norm Coleman fan.  I was a Paul Wellstone Minnesota Democrat.  I truly believe he was one of the great politicians of our time.  Honest.  Open.  Fair.  Concerned about his state and country.  Norm Coleman won after desecrating Senator Wellstone’s funeral.  He ran a dirty race while he was alive, so it shouldn’t have been surprising.  I will not be sorry to see Norm Coleman leave the Senate and vacate Paul Wellstone’s seat.

Missing Ballots in Minnesota

Well one of the ugliest races for Senate in 2008 has been delayed yet again. This time due to missing ballots. To be precise, 130 missing ballots.

Team Franken is pleased the state is doing everything it can to find these ballots. Team Coleman…not so pleased. They aren’t even sure there are missing ballots. I would love to ask Team Coleman if they are so sure they’ve won the election, why are they so afraid of actually counting the votes???

So the plot thickens in the Minnesota Senate race recount…and we haven’t even begun to talk challenged ballots!

Franken Fights for Senate Seat…

And the Democrats are holding their breath to see if they can get to 60!  Team Franken is claiming to be within 50 votes of freshman Republican Norm Coleman.  Coleman won in 2002, after Senator Paul Wellstone’s plane went down.  To me, and other Wellstone fans, that will always be his seat.  In my mind, had Senator Wellstone lived, there’d be no Norm Coleman to beat.

Naturally the Coleman team is claiming the count is much more in his favor. 

I guess we’ll have to wait and see how many votes are tossed, and how many uncounted absentee ballots actually get counted.

Georgia Polls Close

Hopefully it won’t take long to see some results.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that Jim Martin is the next Senator to represent the State of Georgia.  I for one will throw a party if Saxby Chambliss is the next Republican casualty.

This outcome of this seat will tell if the Democrats will get their much needed and wanted 60 seat majority.  Now if someone would just give me some damn numbers, I’d be a happy camper right now.

Updates…well maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.  We are getting smoked in Georgia right now.  Only 9% is in, but if this keeps up I’m going to bed one sad puppy.  The link below will take you to resuts.

Clinton to Replace Clinton???

With Senator Hillary Clinton accepting the position as Secretary of State New York is in need of a new senator.  Some are saying Bill should pick up the reigns.  I’m not so sure about that though…those are pretty big shoes to fill. 

This seems a little bizarre to me, but hey it’s politics…right?  Which makes me wonder…has a President ever come back to be a Senator?  Naturally I decided to google this.  I gotta say, I love google.  I didn’t find anything except a list of Senators who’ve become President…

Anyone know for sure???
