Your Latest Imaginary Minnesota Senate Recount News: Al Franken, Uh, 'Winning'
The Al Franken team announced today that under its special recount tracking methodology, Franken's ahead by 22 votes over that cock Norm Coleman! The maths here seem rather terrible: "The Franken camp's methodology involves taking down the opinions of the local election officials regarding the challenged ballots, and assuming that all the challenges will result in those local officials being upheld by the state canvassing board." Nah, they just readNate Silver's projection and shaved off a few votes, to make it look authentic. [TPM Election Central]
