Democrats Start Shredding the Constitution

I just got a peak at this little jewel:

Senate Democrats move toward seating Franken

The short of the story is that the Senate Democrats want to provisionally seat Al Franken as a US Senator.

I've heard a lot of heartache about how Bush shredded the Constitution in making up law as he needed.  Well, just over 24 hours into the new administration and the party that the new president leads is going to seat someone who has not been elected.  Yes, he is leading, but the state has a constitution and laws that allow for the current process.  He has not been elected.  So let's hear the same level of anger toward Biden (he chairs the Senate now) and the new party in power.

No, I don't expect to hear a thing because it is Democrats that are doing it and all the bullshit about Bush has just been partisan politics, not arguments with principles.  At least I won't be surprised.

"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.
