I agree, Minnesota needs to decide once and for all that Franken is the one. This prolonged indecision is not doing anyone any good. The Dems need complete control of Congress so they can more speedily decimate this Country and we can start from scratch.

SJ, your a joke! The only thing super about you is the super way you run-off at the mouth/keyboard. You are getting old and boring real fast. I don't think 'old joanie' quite knows what to make of you. Nor does any one else, for that matter. So, in your own venacular, go F yourself.


Why am I not surprised that you would tell your 3rd graders to go F themselves. You are fricken UNreal.
No, it's the links in your brain that aren't working. Wish you an ol joanie the best, whey don't you E-Mail one another and further stroke each other in that fashion instead of boring everyone here with your BS.


I like how you two manage to fight with yourselves. What new imaginary characters will you invent next?


Dream on coiler.


I wonder what would happen if some of obnoxious posters on here met face-to-face,would they act this way. Years ago I threw the c.b. radio out of my truck because so many so-called "Truckers" were so dam vulger and verbally agressive. In spite of invitations none ever showed up to back their play


Actually, trudy, I'm pretty much me all the time. I don't do the STFU usually exceptin' here and not often here . . .

But I"m pretty honest and sort of direct. I cannot stand hypocrisy or overly sweet, pretentious, pc people. A real turn off. I think that's been the bane of liberals. Too nice.

But I do it with a smile...


If they actualy met face-to-face, they'd never recognize each other.

But on the issue of Franken vs. Coleman, Franken really needs to take his seat and get to work. He's ready, the folks in MN are ready, and Coleman and the RNC are proving once again just how much they don't believe in democracy.

Puget Sound

Norm Coleman needs to do the right thing and concede.

Wow, it seemed soooo f'n easy from the campaign trail. Interesting to see yet another move to the Bush Cheney position.

Nary a peep from the usual suspects on this blog. LMAO

"Indefinite Detention Weighed


WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is weighing plans to detain some terror suspects on U.S. soil -- indefinitely and without trial -- as part of a plan to retool military commission trials that were conducted for prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The proposal being floated with members of Congress is another indication of President Barack Obama's struggles to establish his counter-terrorism policies, balancing security concerns against attempts to alter Bush-administration practices he has harshly criticized.

On Wednesday, the president reversed a recent administration decision to release photos showing purported abuse of prisoners at U.S. military facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Obama cited concern that releasing the pictures could endanger U.S. troops. Mr. Obama ordered government lawyers to pull back an earlier court filing promising to release hundreds of photos by month's end as part a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The decision to block the detainee photos contrasts with the administration's release last month of Bush-era Justice Department memorandums outlining the interrogation tactics used on prisoners by the Central Intelligence Agency. The release of the memos set off a heated political fight, with supporters of the Bush administration accusing the Obama White House of endangering the country and some of the current president's supporters calling for criminal probes of those responsible for the interrogation policies.

The administration's internal deliberations on how to deal with Guantanamo detainees are continuing, as the White House wrestles with how to fulfill the president's promise to shutter the controversial prison. But some elements of the plans are emerging as the administration consults with key members of Congress, as well as with military officials, about what to do with Guantanamo detainees.

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.), who met this week with White House Counsel Greg Craig to discuss the administration's plans, said among the proposals being studied is seeking authority for indefinite detentions, with the imprimatur of some type of national-security court.

Sen. Graham said he wants to work with the administration to pass legislation to increase judicial oversight of military commissions, but noted the legal difficulties that would arise.

U.S. President Barack Obama makes a statement at the White House on Wednesday.

"This is a difficult question. How do you hold someone in prison without a trial indefinitely?" Sen. Graham said.

The White House had no comment Wednesday about its detainee deliberations.

The idea of a new national security court has been discussed widely in legal circles, including by Bush administration Attorney General Michael Mukasey and Neal Katyal, a former Georgetown law professor and now Obama Justice Department official.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates, at a hearing last month, hinted at the administration's deliberations, saying that there were "50 to 100 [detainees] probably in that ballpark who we cannot release and cannot trust, either in Article 3 [civilian] courts or military commissions."

The administration's move to block the release of military detainee photos was welcomed by Republicans in Congress and by some military family groups but condemned by the ACLU and others.

Mr. Gates, Gen. David Petraeus and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had all raised concerns with the White House about releasing the detainee photos. Mr. Gates and the commanders worried that the pictures would spur new anti-American violence in Iraq and Afghanistan."


Indeed, Coleman needs to move on with his life.


True, Coiler. Coleman being the actual topic of the blog, he really does need to move on, and Minnesota has waited long enough.


indeed, coleman, coiler and drew need to move on.


Indeed, we are weeding out the other human garbage on this blog.

Puget Sound

oh drew, what are you the topic cop?

but hey, we understand why you want to run away from it.


Actually no, putzzzz. But if you feel like you need to be tasered, there's always a recruit somewhere that would like to use you as his new electric sidewalk puppet. I'll fix you up.


If Cheney is ok with it, then McCain wasn't tortured, ya know?


That's a pretty darn good picture of our next Senator from Minnesota. Don't you think?

Super Buzzard Barf.

Why the hell should Coleman concede? The issue is still in the courts and is not settled.
That pussy Franken can just wait until any corruption is weeded out and dishonest votes are disposed of.
Speaking of pussy, did you ever get that pus dripping from yours cured joanie?
