Fox host Brian Kilmeade was also very upset this morning:Gotta love it. "Barely sane" and "effectively stole the election" from the folks that brought you "fair and balanced". Franken has made a second career now calling out FOX and Rush Limbaugh, and now he's a United States Senator. Needless to say, they're gunning for him, and will spend the next five years attacking the guy both ruthlessly and personally for everything he does.
"Now we find out that Al Franken -- who's barely sane if you read his books, and is quite angry in every facet of his life -- is now the Senator from Minnesota," Kilmeade said, turning to his Minnesota-born co-host Gretchen Carlson. "Explain yourself, Gretchen."
The Wall Street Journal also has an editorial decrying the election process in Minnesota -- an essay that is so full of factual errors and distortions about what happened, it can drive you nuts if you'd spent countless hours following all the gritty details like I did. Its major fallacy is to accuse the Franken campaign of committing supposedly dirty maneuvers, without mentioning that the Coleman side was participating in the exact same activities just as fervently or even more so.
"Mr. Franken now goes to the Senate having effectively stolen an election," the Journal concludes. "If the GOP hopes to avoid repeats, it should learn from Minnesota that modern elections don't end when voters cast their ballots. They only end after the lawyers count them."
It might even give the Obama hate a run for its money once in a while.
