Minnesota's Senate Election Results  

With the recount complete, it turns out that Al Franken has won the election by a margin of 225 votes. I expect to hear soon that Norm Coleman—being a mench and not a shmendrik—will stand by his earlier statements about honoring the will of the people as indicated by their votes and will be gracefully conceding the election sometime this Sunday or Monday.

At that press conference, I expect that he'll be flanked by Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny...

Drinking a lot?
Or has something attacked your brain? ;-)

I'm going to guess that Weasel Norm will be running to the state Supreme Court and the Federal Supreme Court whilst screaming about having been robbed.

Re: Drinking a lot?
No, drinking and meds don't mix well. But perhaps you're right—perhaps Norm's not a mench after all. Who knew?

Re: Drinking a lot?
I'm guessing I'll achieve sainthood before Norm achieves menschhood.

While certainly not a mench...
He's not a shmendrik, he's a goniff.

Re: While certainly not a mench...
Hm. You, also, are correct.

And following that, all combatant nations will lay down their arms and join hands, and no one in the world will go hungry.

Yes. And, gosh, just think—it's all because Coca-Cola taught the world to sing…

Minnesota's Senate Election Results
Hey! You're post made me laugh and I could sort of intuit mench and shmendrik from the context, but now I have goniff and I'm goy-lost. Enlighten??

Re: Minnesota's Senate Election Results
The quick answer is that a goniff is a thief, scoundrel, or rascal. I hope to have the energy for a somewhat longer answer later in the week or on the weekend. (I'm glad you laughed!)
