Breaking Down The Norm Coleman Family Vote On A Possible Run For Governor


Norm Coleman isjust weird: "MINNEAPOLIS - Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman says his family voted 3-1 against him running for governor, so he will not join the race." Thanks for the final tally, Norm. Glad to know democracy is still practiced in some households these days, like when a father can't make up his mind about whether to seek employment. SO WHAT'S INSIDE THESE NUMBERS?

We believe the voting broke down like so. (If it's wrong, Intern Riley gets fired five more times.)

Laurie Coleman (the wife who lives in Hollywood): No.

Jacob Coleman (son): YES! "[Norm] tells The Associated Press his 23-year-old son wanted him to run..."

Norm Coleman (The One): "...but that he felt he couldn't step away from his family for 10 months to conduct the campaign." No.

Sarah Coleman (daughter): No.

"He says he reached the decision during a family dinner Friday night."

Jus' like you 'n' me 'n' the common folk would reach them decisions, a-yuk a-yuk.

Coleman says he believes he could have won a Republican primary for governor, and that he's not endorsing any Republican candidate for now.

Umm so yeah, I could definitely run and win, but like... it'd just be such a hassle. And the family. So not worth it. (Would totally win though.) (Just sayin'.)

The Dumb Song Of J. Dinesh Prufrock

A quick Dear Shitferbrains for you smart kids today, in response to our recent piece on Dinesh D'Souza's continued insistence that historian Kevin M.

It turns out we picked the wrong historian to lionize, according to "Hadding Scott," who dropped by to let us know we had foolishly referred to a mere Princeton professor instead of to the most comprehensive take-down-er of D'Souza's lies, "Hadding Scott" himself.

Among the primary results from Tuesday that we didn't report: Chris Murphy, US Senator from Connecticut, managed to hold on to the Democratic nomination for a second term. Actually, if you want to get all technical about it, he didn't win the nom Tuesday -- he'd already been nominated at the state party convention in May, and the Dem primary was cancelled since Murphy was the only one to file. Murphy's also heavily favored to win reelection this fall. The biggest question for Murphy is whether he's hoping to seek some other office in a couple years. (As if any prominent Democratic senator hasn't already mentally compared their inaugural crowd size to Trump's.)
