I never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but when is the rest of the media going to get on board with Joe Scarborough and ask Norm Coleman to concede the election in Minnesota to Al Franken? When are they going to ask the GOP leadership who are telling Coleman to keep up this fight to stop and that the public has had enough of their nonsense?

This is yesterday's news but this game is getting old really fast. I hope the citizens of Minnesota are letting both Norm Coleman and Gov. Pawlenty know that they're tired of this and would like to have two Senators representing their state. Thank you Joe Scarborough for telling the truth in this moment of candor and I hope I don't see you back tracking any time soon.

Scarborough: Seriously. Norm, I like you. You lost. Okay. Can we seat a senator so Amy [Klobuchar] doesn't have to do the job of two Senators? It is seriously not fair to constituents in Minnesota to drag this out any longer. It is over Norm, okay. It is over.

No Norm it isn't fair. I just wonder what sort of cushy job in return for his work Coleman has been offered to keep this fight up for the GOP. They want to see that 59th Senate seat for the Democrats about as much as any of them look forward to having a root canal done.

Can you help us out?
