Finally -- Franken!

So the Minnesota Supreme Court rules Franken is the winner. Of course everybody knew that for the last almost eight months, but now it's official. All that remains to be seen is if Pawlenty will do the right thing and certify him. He'd be crazy if he didn't. Public opinion strongly favors an end to this charade. I'm thinking a lot depends on whether he intends to run for re-election or not.

Of course, I fully expect Coleman will still want to take it all the way to SCOTUS. TPM runs down some of his possible strategies at the link. But for the moment, I'm visualizing thunderous applause when Sen. Franken enters the chamber for the first time.
