Blago appoints new Senator, Israel invades Gaza, Franken still trying to Steal Minnesota Senate Seat

Hey everyone believe it or not I just got my computer set up in my new place today. This moving thing is annoying. I'll probably be moving again in a few months. I'm not looking forward to that. Well let me catch up on a few stories I've missed in the last couple of weeks.

Minnesota Recount: It looks like Franken may have had some votes counted twice. Coleman attorney Fritz Knaak issued a statement saying, “The Franken campaign wants to simply accept the double counts; however, once those ballots are put in the pile, as the Franken campaign wants, they are part of the count. To protect the right of every voter in Minnesota, we are asking the Supreme Court to straighten out the problem of including both duplicate ballots and original ballots in the final recount number.”

There are around 200 ballots that have been counted twice according to the Coleman camp. "Talking about instances when a ballot couldn't be run through a voting machine, requiring a duplicate to be made, the Coleman campaign said the ballot should be counted only if an original could be matched with its copy." Right now it looks like Franken will win this election by less than 100 votes. Coleman is planning a suit to get the double counted ballots tossed out.

So Democrats are trying to steal the election. Is it just me or do Democrats accuse Republicans of doing things there never did only to turn around and do the thing they accused Republicans of doing? Stealing elections for example. This isn't rocket science if you there is a proceedure for what happens when a ballot can't be run though a voting machine. They are supposed to be marked. The fact that none of the ballots were marked and you know that around 200 (I believe 192 is the exact number) couldn't be run through the voting machine means that there must be duplicate ballots. It appears that number is 192. If you can't match the original ballot with it's copy then the vote shouldn't count because it is most likely a duplicate. Just don't try to explain that to a liberal or their head might explode.

Blago makes Senate apointment:
The soon to be impeached Democrat governor of Illinois appointed former State Attorney General Roland Burris. Burris if the Senate agrees to seat him something Harry Reid as said he will not do, would be the only African American member of the Senate. So in essence Blago has played the race card on his own party. He has forced Harry Reid to either seat Burris or to refuse to seat what would be the only minority member of the U.S. Senate. "The choice of Burris to be Obama's replacement is being backed my the African American community. U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush forcefully backed Blagojevich's decision on the basis of race, warning the public not to "lynch" Blagojevich's Senate pick, who is black." "This is a matter of national importance," Rush said. "There are no African-Americans in the Senate, and I don't think that anyone, any U.S. senator who's sitting in the Senate right now wants to go on record to deny one African-American for being seated in the U.S. Senate. ... And so I intend to take that argument to the Congressional Black Caucus."
