|In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) said he hopes Norm Coleman (R) prevails in his Senate recount court fight against Al Franken (D) in Minnesota.|
Said Specter: "There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner."
Now, never mind the fact that Specter is now a Democrat, but what in the hell could he possibly mean by this? By what possible criteria would the Minnesota courts be unjust by declaring Franken the winner? Things were very close on election night, they did a recount, and Franken got more votes. And that's even ignoring the fact that Coleman's lawyering was far more active during the recount process, challenging far more ballots and generally asking the courts to deeply intervene in the process.
Arlen Specter is an ass.
