As newly anointed Minnesota Senator Al Franken prepares to take his seat in Washington, a new survey published today indicates that a majority of Minnesota voters can no longer remember whether or not they voted for him.
"This is clearly a casualty of the long legal aftermath of the Senate election," says Davis Logsdon, who conducted the survey for University of Minnesota's Opinion Research institute. "There's been a lot of short-term memory loss."
Norm Coleman's decision to concede got a thumbs-up yesterday from an unlikely source: Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
"Other losers could learn a lot from him," the Ayatollah said.
