I Watched It Today, Did You?

It was everything I hoped it would be. A formal ceremony in the round, complete with kind words, applause, hugs, and an outpouring of emotion directed at one man and his achievements. I'm referring, of course, to Senator Al Franken's swearing in at the U.S. Senate. Oh, you thought I was talking about something else?

And it's only been 8 months since the election! Pretty incredible in this electronic age that it could drag on so long. I'm sure the two contenders thought so too. It would seem they could have phoned everyone in the entire state of Minnesota several times in the course of 8 months.

There is something fairly exciting about winning an election by 300 votes, don't you think?
