Things that are almost victories…

Can we say it for sure yet?  It might be… It could be… But is it?  Might the senate actually have 60 Democrats?

With a little help from Arlen Specter and the Minnesotan Supreme Court, it looks like it might actually be so.  From the decision:

For all of the foregoing reasons, we affirm the decision of the trial court that Al Franken received the highest number of votes legally cast and is entitled under Minn. Stat. § 204C.40 (2008) to receive the certificate of election as United States Senator from the State of Minnesota.

He’s entitled to the seat… is that like saying I’m entitled to a puppy because I acted like a good girl and did all my chores and watched my little brother, but in actuality you’re going to make me wait another 5 months?  Or can we go to the pound today and pick one out?

You know… not that these past 7 months haven’t been fun and all.
