This just in: The Minnesota Supreme Court has rejected Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman's bid to extend his lengthy recount fight with Democratic challenger, satirist Al Franken. Franken, who entered the recount down by 215 votes out of more than 2.9 million cast on Nov. 4, currently holds a 225-vote lead. The new U.S. Senate takes office on Tuesday.

from High School Wrestler to SNL to AirAmerica Radio talker and now on his way to being a real life politician. The circle is almost complete.
Minnesota sure has a thing with wrestlers.
