Quote of the Day: Norm Coleman's Illustrious Career

>> Monday, January 5, 2009

From Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight.com:

Let's be frank: Norm Coleman doesn't have much of a future in electoral politics. Defeated Presidential candidates sometimes have nine lives, but defeated Senatorial candidates rarely do, and in his career running for statewide office, Coleman has lost to a professional wrestler, beaten a dead guy, and then tied a comedian. He doesn't have much to lose by fighting this to its bitter conclusion. But it's hard to envision how he'll come up with enough ballots to overtake Franken.

republicans will follow anybody.

I was talking to a transplanted Minnasotan, and he said folks he know, can't stand Coleman. I wonder why.

I don't understand who likes him up there either. My parents said that people who don't like him hired a Bush impersonator or someone wearing a Bush mask, I can't remember which exactly, to follow him around the state while he was campaigning for re-election. The county my parents grew up in went for Franken. Yay!
