ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Supreme Court has ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race.

The high court rejected a legal challenge from Republican Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.

Justices said Franken is entitled to the election certificate he needs to assume office. With Franken and the usual backing of two independents, Democrats will have a big enough majority to overcome Republican filibuster.

Coleman hasn’t ruled out seeking federal court intervention

Now, it’s time for that punk Pawlenty to certify it, and give Minnesota Equal Representation in the U.S. Senate.

Getting Franken in there would mean that the Democrats would have 60 votes and NO MORE EXCUSES.
