Al Franken Wins!

Ripped from the front page of the Minnesota Supreme Courts:

In the Matter of the Contest of the General Election held on November 4, 2008, for the purpose of electing a United States Senator from the State of Minnesota, Cullen Sheehan and Norm Coleman, contestants, Appellants vs. Al Franken,
contestee, Respondent.

Ramsey County.
1. Appellants did not establish that, by requiring proof that statutory absentee voting standards were satisfied before counting a rejected absentee ballot, the trial court’s decision constituted a post-election change in standards that violates substantive due process.
2. Appellants did not prove that either the trial court or local election officials violated the constitutional guarantee of equal protection.
3. The trial court did not abuse its discretion when it excluded additional evidence.
4. Inspection of ballots under Minn. Stat. § 209.06 (2008) is available only on a showing that the requesting party cannot properly be prepared for trial without an inspection. Because appellants made no such showing here, the trial court did not err in denying inspection.
5. The trial court did not err when it included in the final election tally the election day returns of a precinct in which some ballots were lost before the manual recount.
Affirmed. Per Curiam.
Took no part, Chief Justice Eric J. Magnuson and Justice G. Barry Anderson.

Kinda-Sleazy Norm Coleman (R-Lost) got smoked.

Patricia McKinney Is a Witch-Doctor – Without the Ph.D. in Witch

She admits her ignorance in spirituality.  And she willingly admits her lack of education in spirituality.  What she’s willing to admit is her defense against her own self-designed cult-movement against The Gays.

She has no defense against the Gay Community, and admits it freely, and she’s willing to pin gay teen to the floor with her own husband’s foot at the boy’s throat in an effort to proclaim her title as a “prophetess”.

This teenager has been abused – because Patricia McKinney demands that we call her “Profit-ess”

A short-recap:

Patricia McKinney coerced her “flock” to pin a teenaged boy to the floor in an effort to cast out an alleged “homosexual demon”.

Surprsied by the public reaction that wasn’t positive (www.godhatesfags.com), “Profitsess McKinney” made her own executive dicision to cut the video from YouTube by claiming that her original “exorcism” was “copywrited”.

Meanwhile – Profetess Do-Stupid was eager to run out and snap her fingers that she wasn’t a hate-monger against the Gay Community –  But she was simply a drug addict, a low-life and a little bit confused.

TMZ Has Just Reported: Michael Jackson Has Just Died

TMZ is reporting that the King of Pop and just passed away from cardiac arrest. From TMZ:

“We’ve just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive.

We’re told one of the staff members at Jackson’s home called 911.

La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead.

Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II.”

Who would’ve thought that Elizabeth Taylor would outlive that husband too?

Fox News: Mark Sanford is a “Democrat”!

Talk about sloppy journalism…  Those folks over at Fox – check it out!


They put a “D” behind his name!!!

You know – it seems like this happens at Fox News a lot!  They keep bungling up the “crawl” and putting a “D” behind the Republican’s name trying to pretend it was an innocent mistake!

Remember this?

Or this little gem from February 2008, when McCain still was hated Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the Republican Thugs:

Brad Friedman said:

Fox “News”, of course, tells Newser (re: the Foley Flubbed-Photo) that “this was gross incompetence by a producer — nothing more.” In the Foley matter, they said “it was an honest mistake,” and thus never bothered to issue an on-air correction or apology.

Here’s one where Fox News mis-identifies Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) as a Republican and Lincoln Chaffe (R-R.I.) as a Democrat.

With these repeated mistakes, one would think that an intelligent news agency would simply terminate the employ of incompetancy like this.  There’s an obvious track-record of screwing up the political party identity – perhaps someone over at Fox News’ Human Resources should step in and restore Fox News’ good name as a professional news source!

fruitfly21Of course; Fox News could admit to being an amateur news agency.  Much better appeal than acting like they’re  being managed by junior high children who are more concerned with acne medication than they are with any sort of professional journalism with a story to tell its audience.
