I think this finally brings the 2008 election cycle to a close. I’ve grown resigned to this idea of this for a while now. It will become a reality soon. Doesn’t mean I like it. Not that I ever disliked Franken’s comedy — he was good at the comedy. It’s when he’s being serious that I’m not a fan. And I’m not a fan of either party having a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, which is the way things will stand once Senator Franken is seated — which could be as early as next week.
