1) The Coleman campaign kinda reminds me of the invasion of Iraq.  They declared victory prematurely, pissed off the natives, and poured massive quantities of money and resources down a black hole rather than admit defeat.  Of course, in this case the only fatalities were Norm’s political career, and maybe Tim Pawlenty’s.

2) Looking forward to the Republicans caterwauling about how the MN Supreme Court engaged in judicial activism by declaring the candidate with the most votes to be the winner.

3) Looking foward to Harry Reid explaining why you just can’t get anything done without 67 votes in the Senate.

    These Democrats couldn’t get anything done if they had 80 votes in the Senate.

    We could have 100 Democrats in the Senate, and we’d still be lucky to have 50 progressives, much less 60.

    And yet the number of non-conservative Republicans in the Senate is usually less than five, and none of them anywhere near as “moderate” as the most conservative Democrats.
