"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Georgia & Minnesota update

Congratulations to Senator Chambliss on his impressive 57.4% to 42.6% win yesterday! Welcome back for your second term. Thank you for your commitment to Conservative principles (94.19 ACU rating) and your continued fight for them in the coming years.

Coleman's lead is now at 303 votes after Franken picked up 37 unexpected votes from 171 previously uncounted ballots.

Franken got another boost when Minn. Secretary of State Mark Richie (D) asked local officials to examine the previously rejected absentee ballots (approx. 12,000). This includes the 1,000 ballots that the Franken campaign has been fighting to get recounted claiming they had been improperly rejected.

With 93% of the vote recounted, it appears the Franken is gearing up for the legal end-game in which he hopes to sway the outcome with absentee ballots and the almost 6,000 challenged ballots from the recount.

This is going to drag on for a long time!
