Where's Joe Pesci When You Need Him?

Been reading the latest news on the MN Senate election trial:
The Coleman team appears to be laying out a continued strategy of casting doubt on the legitimacy of the Minnesota election result by pointing to a fundamental underlying idea of this dispute: The margin of error is simply too big in a race this close.

"Is there some point at which the margin of error is just too wide compared to the difference in votes to determine who truly won?" Coleman lawyer John Rock asked Ramsey County (St. Paul) elections director Joe Mansky. Mansky replied that there is absolutely such a point, with accuracy topping out at over 99.99%.

Nate Silver thinks that Coleman is headed that way, too. This is ridiculous! Norm, it's time to go. Give it up. You're making an ass of yourself.
