Al Gets the Nod!

Al Franken has been declared the winner in Minnesota, by 225 votes. I thought this race would never end, glad the good guy won.

It'll be interesting watching how Al operates in the US Senate. He's used to speaking his mind, often satirizing political events in a manner that makes conservatives heads explode. Moderating that a bit, so he can maximize his effectiveness, without losing his edge will be a challenge.

Even more important, Kay Hagan will shortly be sworn in as NC's newest Senator. What a change! We've waited 6 long years to return to reasonable, effective representation for our state. Finally a Senator we can be proud of.
