TPM: Bye-Bye, Norm!

Since I'm new to SEI, I've tried to spend more time posting full pieces instead the little jibs and jabs I throw up elsewhere.

But this one was too good to resist. Courtesy of Talking Points Memo:

The Minnesota election court has just handed down a very important ruling that will determine the entire course of the rest of this trial -- and it's very bad news for Norm Coleman, cutting off multiple avenues he was pursuing in order to get more votes for himself thrown into the count.

Yesterday the court heard arguments regarding the campaigns' positions on 19 categories of rejected absentee ballot envelopes, and whether the voters should be cut sufficient slack as to allow the ballot in. The court has now handed down a ruling on 12 of those categories -- and it's an emphatic No.
