What's up, Minnesota?

I just don't get how the Minnesota Supreme Court can justify not acting with outright alacrity to decide the case already, and declare Franken the winner of the election in November. The legal case on the Coleman side is preposterously flimsy. And if Pawlenty, Franken victory in court in hand, still refuses to certify the election, it will be a very dark day for any notion of orderly electoral politics in the United States. We have tolerated far too many spurious challenges, including, of course, the infamous Bush v. Gore, through which a large fraction of voters will always believe the Bush faction literally hijacked an election and brought us the worst administration in our history. Enough already. Minnesota supremes: expedite the damn case, make your decision, and give your state's citizens the senator they elected.
