The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday finally allowed Al Franken to assume his seat in the Senate. After a mind numbing 7 months of waiting, Republican Norm Coleman finally conceded. This of course makes him the fabled 60th Democratic vote in the Senate, a development that grants liberals a super majority, removing from the Republican arsenal their ability to filibuster and hold up legislation they do not like. This would be great if there was actually going to be a super majority. However as we’ve seen in the past 6 months the main factor holding back a new progressive and liberal agenda is the Democratic party. As many of you have noticed, and Bill Maher recently pointed out, the majority of democrats in this country have moved to the center right, while the Republican party has just moved towards being bat shit crazy. So even though the Democrats technically have the power to steamroll through legislation like FDR did during the New Dealhttp://www.ipcc.ch/ they won’t I’m sorry to say.
