If your election lasts longer than six months, call... someone.
It just dawned on me a moment ago that the Minnesota senatorial election between Norm Coleman and Al Franken is well into its fifth month. And according to Firedoglake, there's yet another month's worth of paper chasing before it might end. On the positive side, a recent tally of votes put Franken up by an additional 87 votes, and a number of conservative commentators have recommended that Coleman give it up.
Because, face it, a prolonged election like this is not only painful, it can lead to serious long-term consequences, including permanent impertinence. Or impudence. Or something like that.
