About that Minnesota Senate race

franken-coleman-topperAl Franken is, at the moment, 61 votes ahead, aided by some unimaginably lame challenges by the Coleman camp. (Coleman challenged a lot of legit Franken votes, goosing his lead before the challenges were reviewed; now that’s coming back.

Theuptake is live streaming the Canvassing Board (yes, I am that much of a nerd) and has a live – and very active – comments thread.

My favorite moment – outside of Franken taking the lead – was this, after a vote from White Bear Lake was read:

My old home state lives in the hearts of Americans, defined by the Coen brothers.
