Cranky GOP Babies Throwing Tantrum

The Republicans have decided they are going to block Al Franken from being seated if the Minnesota canvassing board declares him the winner. Coleman is still going to take the results to court. Legal experts have said Norm won't win, that he's a douchebag and he looks weird (I don't know why legal experts said those things, but they did).
The top Senate Republican said his caucus would block any attempt to seat Democrat Al Franken until an anticipated court case over Minnesota's close election is finished and an official election certificate is conferred.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn said Friday that Republicans would object to seating the race leader Franken sooner.
Cornyn also said it's "unprecedented" to seat someone in this situation. Of course, he's a lying asshole.
As recently as 2007, Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) was seated without prejudice by the majority-Democratic House while his election was being contested, and in 1997 the majority-Republican Senate provisionally seated Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) after her GOP opponent alleged irregularities in her very narrow win.
I just want Franken to get in there so we can watch some of his speeches. Oh, and because Bill O'Reilly said he would move to Ireland if Franken wins.

Sorry, Ireland.

I wish Felafel Man would move to Ireland, though I guess that's being mean to the Irish.
