Buh-Bye, Norm, Hello Senator Franken!

The Associated Press:
A Minnesota board on Monday certified results showing Democrat Al Franken winning the state's U.S. Senate recount over Republican Norm Coleman, whose lawyer promised a legal challenge that will keep the race in limbo for weeks. The Canvassing Board's declaration started a seven-day clock for Coleman, the incumbent, to file a lawsuit protesting the result. His attorney Tony Trimble said the challenge will be filed within 24 hours.
Hey Norm, do you remember saying these words?
"Yesterday the voters spoke. We prevailed," Coleman said Wednesday at a news conference. He noted Franken could opt to waive the recount.

"It's up to him whether such a step is worth the tax dollars it will take to conduct," Coleman said, telling reporters he would "step back" if he were in Franken's position.

Time to be a man, Norm. It's over. Go. You ran a scummy campaign, you lost, and now it's time to GTFOH. You've got other things to worry about, anyway, like impending corruption charges.

And hello, Senator-Elect Franken!!
