"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

Update on Minnesota Senate Race

As the Franken campaign has claimed since recounting began, the continue their claim of a narrow margin of votes post-recount. These claims got some legitimacy this week then for a moment the canvassing board, after counting only the Franken challenged ballots, had Franken up my almost 200 votes. That has since been reverse after the counting of the Coleman challenged ballots.

The Minnesota Secretary of States office (official results) has Coleman up by 215

The Star Tribune (educated projections) has Coleman up by 188

It is difficult to dissect what the campaign and newspaper estimates contain and do not contain. Therefore it is probably appropriate to stick with the SECSTATE count reporting.

In case you didn't pay attention last week.

The sage continues....
