No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

If At First You Don’t Succeed

Earlier this week, the three judge panel reviewing the Coleman/Franken contested case, issued a ruling that appears to have negative implications for Coleman, at least in this phase:

 

As a result, Harry Reid is looking again to seat Al Franken as Senator for Minnesota:

Upping the ante in his crusade to anoint Democrat Al Franken the next senator from Minnesota, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is blaming Senate Republican leader John Cornyn for the impasse that has left Minnesotans minus one senator for five months now.

Harry, via his spokesman, goes on to explain that his desire has nothing to do with him personally.  You see, Harry is just looking out for us poor Minnesotans who are short a Senator:

Reid spokesman Jim Manley told Politico.com on Thursday: “It’s not fair to the people of Minnesota to be represented by only one senator, and it’s about time a senator from Texas stop telling the people of Minnesota what’s best for them. Enough is enough.”

Hey, Harry, I know you read our blog.  I just want you to know as one Minnesotan who doesn’t think it really matters whether you have anywhere from 57 to 60 Democrat votes, I’m in no hurry to get a second Senator.  The one we have now is horrible at her job, why would I want to double down on that?  I’m sure with as quickly as you’re expanding the Federal Government payroll you could put the office space of our second Senator to some good use!
