Coleman Would Have Lost Even Worse To A Non-Franken Candidate
Wow, this is a kind of a weird thing to say: Norm Coleman told the AP that anybody besides Al Franken would havereally kicked his ass in that Senate race. Why is Norm Coleman pointing out that he could have been an even bigger loser than he already is, locked in an endless recount with a retired comedian who didn't even live in Minnesota for 30 years?
"I think any Democrat other than Al Franken would have been elected," Coleman told The Associated Press in an interview. "A Minnesota-bred, traditional Democratic candidate probably could have waltzed into office in this cycle."
Wow, them's fightin' words, sure to buck up his most despairing supporters! Henry V could not have put it better.
