Al Franken – U.S. Senator – With Video by JM Bell | Jul 7, 2009 | Democrats | 6 comments Thanks to TPM – The movie speaks for itself. As a former temporary Minnesotan – I am very, very proud of the 50.00000001% of Minnesota voters who made this day possible.

Bob on July 9, 2009 at 9:52 am Actually, it was 41.994% Coleman got 41.983$ and Dean Barkley got 15..151%. JM Bell on July 9, 2009 at 10:03 am You guys often feel the need to beat a punchline to death? Note all the zeros and put on your giggle hat. Jay Hutchinson on July 9, 2009 at 10:29 am You’re right, it’s a good punchline… It’s just grossly inaccurate 🙂 JM Bell on July 9, 2009 at 10:32 am THERE YOU GO AGAIN! Next time you take a break from making a puppy cry – go stomp on someone else’s punchlines. Curtis on July 9, 2009 at 10:43 am My giggle hat was only activated when you said you proud to have been a former temporary Minnesotan – Christ, its like saying you are proud to be from Alabama! Lakes, pish, what a joke.
