    I'm with you there. And Coleman is a schmuck, but I'd rather have a schmuck over a piece of shit. Minnesotans should be embarrassed for letting Franken even come close to winning this election.

    The recount has the race getting even closer. The lead is down to 221 votes (from 700ish on Wednesday). Coleman thinks there's something funny going on.

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Last I heard Michelle Bachman was ahead up there in Minnesota. Too bad. I was hoping that she'd get her ass kicked big time.

    She's pretty annoying. She wasn't in my district so I didn't vote on it, and I have no idea who she was running against.
