Choosing poorly

It seems Norm Coleman insists on beating his head against the wall.

Republican Norm Coleman, who received 225 fewer votes than DFLer Al Franken in the U.S. Senate recount, will challenge the result in court. He told reporters at a state Capitol news conference that a lawsuit, known as an election contest, would proceed.

Foolish.  Taking the “noble” path and accepting defeat with class would give him sympathy within the base and set him up well for another run at governor – and beyond Pawlenty, there’s no obvious heir apparent.

Coming off as a sore loser and petty after his repeated attempts to change the rules in counting isn’t going to gain him much public sympathy.
