Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell now:

The court’s decision in Minnesota leaves no other choice but to continue the process to ensure that every legal vote is counted.

But back in 2000 during Bush v. Gore, McConnell urged Al Gore to be a “statesman” and “give it up”. “Enough is enough. Where do the interests of the country begin and the interests of the campaign end? … There’s an important responsibility for the loser to lose with grace.” McConnell also sent out an email, threatening Democratic Senators if they did not “denounce Gore’s blatant attempt to steal this election.” And finally, McConnell accused Gore of wanting to “contest this until he runs out of lawyers, and there are lots of lawyers down in Florida.” There seem to be plenty of lawyers in Minnesota, as well.

    Norm Coleman is a grade A piece of shit. Not only did he switch parties back in the early nineties, when it was politically expedient for him to do so, but now he’s dragging this election on in a way Al Franken never would have, had it been clear that he was going to lose. He’s willing to deprive Minnesota of one of its senators on the off chance that he might somehow steal this election yet, six months later. What ever happened to “conceding like a gentleman,” as he demanded of Franken back when he was ahead? Utter scumbag, worthless human being. Norm; kill yourself. It’s the only way to save your soul.

    Dear Iron Knee,

    You know what you do well? You track down specific, indefensible examples of this stuff and then you post it with minimal editorializing of your own. You let the facts speak for themselves, and that’s just awesome.
