Coleman and Franken

A five-member elections panel in Minnesota has begun the process of examining hundreds of ballots challenged by both sides in the Senate contest between Norm Coleman and Al Franken today. The board will have to sort through as many as 1,500 ballots to determine voter intent.

On Minnesota Public Radio, they have posted images of the challenged ballots between Franken and Coleman. You can see what problems they're having..

    on another note, list of the guantanamo detainees

  2. Recount: Wow, people are fucking retarded. We've been using bubble scantrons since, like, fifth grade, yet people still can't get it straight.

    Gitmo: It's frightening to see the list because it forces you to acknowledge that these are real people that we've had locked up. At the same time, having something like this come to light makes me feel like things are finally heading in the right direction.

  3. It's gonna be Franken '09 by the time this thing is over. I don't see why we have to sue for years about retarded shit. Just call a do-over.

  6. There was an article in either AM New York or Metro that listed some of the write-ins on New York ballots and Mickey Mouse was on it. I smell a conspiracy...
