QUITTERS  4:47 pm March 20, 2009

by Jim Newell

  • NORM COLEMAN’S LAWYER IS ‘DONE,’ SOMEHOW: Joe Friedberg, Norm Coleman’s recount attorney, tells Hotline, “Yes, I’m done,” after being asked if he is “done.” It is not clear whether this means he’s quitting, but it does mean that maybe someday, in 2025 or something, Norm Coleman’s legal challenges to his lost 2008 election will be over.

When Normie quits, the Lizard People will have won.

So Norm’s out of cash money?

V572625694 March 20, 2009 at 4:54 pm

[re=270279]magic titty[/re]: Ya think Normie was paying for this anti-democracy charade out of his own pocket? That’s one thing politicians, Corzine notwithstanding, almost never do.

Norm’s bound to get Steele’s job now as a consolation prize. Steele will host the new ‘Dancing with the GOP’ on Fox.

But he brought you hockey!

…and i had such high hopes.

Coleman’s aim isn’t to win — it’s to keep things as gummed up as possible so that people get so annoyed at not being able to go forward that they’ll elect Republicans again. They may take us to hell in a handbasket, but they make good time.

The only thing that will persuade the Repubtard-financed Norm Coleman to quit is when every judge in the land issues a restraining order to keep him out of their courtrooms.

Is there anyone who doesn’ believe this is just about keeping the Dems from getting to 59?

This just in!
Al Franken has been killed in a small plane crash while snacking at Taco Bell in the Mall of American. Norm has awarded the Senate seat just to get him out of Minnesota.
Good Day!

To adapt from Custerwolf from a few posts back, any mention of Norm Coleman makes me want to go over to his house and beat him to death with his retarded kid’s bowling trophies. This fucktaroon’s playtime is over. Please someone put his ugly teeth in jail so Al Franken can begin to amuse us already.

The Cold Sea March 20, 2009 at 5:43 pm

He probably just finished taking a dump.

[re=270302]DustBowlBlues[/re]: Don’t you just love Bayh and the other so-called “moderate” Dems now that we have a chance to do something. Why do I hate Bayh? I am seething with anger at them. But I live in Connecticut. We’ve got our own problems.

Jukesgrrl March 20, 2009 at 7:09 pm

[re=270370]June Cleaver 2.0[/re]: “But I live in Connecticut. We’ve got our own problems.” Yeah, two that I can think of, but to get rid of them you’ll have to blow up K Street.

It’s a goddamn National disgrace the lack of support Franken has gotten from the Democrats on this with their hands off, wait and see approach on this.

Franken has been at this fight much longer than most of us here and thoughout the party and it is unlikely we’d have the House, almost the Senate, and the White House with President Obama.

Talk about ingratitude.

We all oughta be ashamed of ourselves for this glaring lack of support we’ve shown Franken.


I predict when Franken comes out of this thing he will have the highest profile of any Junior Senator, ever, and that he’s gonna become one of the most powerful Senators we’ve ever seen.

[re=270335]hobospacejungle[/re]: haha. werd,

[re=270370]June Cleaver 2.0[/re]:
June, you hate Bayh because he’s a robot. As much as hollywood has tried to condition us to love robots (ask yourself why…) we have a natural desire to bust them up when they invade our lives (see: Romney). Bayh started out wooden and is now plastic. A pandering schmuck like Coleman is, though repulsive, still human.

saggyboobedhag March 20, 2009 at 9:44 pm

He’s cooked.

gliberal March 20, 2009 at 9:52 pm

Franken will be declared the winner just in time to begin campaigning for re-election against…Norm!

snideinplainsight March 20, 2009 at 10:41 pm

I bet his son could totally wax Obama at bowling!

[re=270437]Dustin de Wynde[/re]: It’s the diapers.

gurukalehuru March 21, 2009 at 1:46 am

[re=270437]Dustin de Wynde[/re]: That’s it. The truth. What you said, exactly.

amuseinc March 21, 2009 at 7:14 am

You would think that Normie would want to end his Neverending story in the courts. He could get back to his hobby of skirt-chasing full time. With this going on he only has the weekends.

Cape Clod March 21, 2009 at 9:22 am

Jesus Christ, it’s fucking late March and they still haven’t settled this thing?

Bruno March 21, 2009 at 10:56 am

[re=270522]amuseinc[/re]: Maybe the skirt chasing ploy is the wommin lawyers. Or more likely court reporters
