I can’t even begin to tell you how very, very much I hope that when the smoke clears, the final, certified, pre-recount totals are a couple of hundred votes in Mr. Frankin’s favor. ’Cause I really want to watch Slimy Norman bouncing and flopping and spinning and foaming at the mouth and proclaiming that no, he was misquoted … he didn’t really say that. Besides, even if he really did say that he didn’t actually mean it the way it sounded. Ad nausium.
"Yesterday the voters spoke. We prevailed," Coleman said Wednesday at a news conference. He noted Franken could opt to waive the recount.
"It's up to him whether such a step is worth the tax dollars it will take to conduct," Coleman said, telling reporters he would "step back" if he were in Franken's position.
