Franken and Reid, the Thieves?

The hypocrisy of the (D) Party is unbounded.

Here's the summation from PowerLine, quoting Coleman's campaign manager, Cullen Sheehan:

"This is a stunning admission by the Franken campaign that they are willing to take this process away from Minnesotans if they fail to win the recount. It is even more stunning that the Democratic Senate leader would inject himself into the Minnesota election process. This says that Franken is fully prepared and armed to take this matter to the United States Senate and that the Senate will be receptive - even if Franken fails to succeed in winning the recount. This is a troubling new development. We call upon Al Franken to personally disavow his attorney's comments, and to commit to Minnesotans that he will not allow this election to be overturned by the leadership of the Democratic Senate. Al Franken owes it to the people of this state to reject any and all efforts to stop a Minnesota Senator from being sworn in on January 6th if Norm Coleman continues to be shown to have won this election after the recount."

(Cullen Sheehan was the campaign manager for Tim Michels' Senate campaign, if you don't remember.)

PowerLine comments, optimistically:

Most likely, though, this is just a trial balloon. I seriously doubt that the Democrats would risk seating Franken in the face of a Coleman electoral victory, followed by a recount victory, followed by victory in the Minnesota courts.

We shall see. Common sense and hubris are not generally found in the same place.

Just remember; it's not by any means necessary, but by every means available.

Molon labe.

"Stunning"!? Hasn't he been paying attention?
