The WaPo is making good on slanting the news for it's mob owned corporate proprietors.
Although Franken trailed Coleman on election night, the Democrat -- thanks in part to the ace work of election lawyer Marc Elias -- has gained steadily ever since. A hand recount of the nearly 3 million ballots cast turned the race into a dead heat, and the recent counting of 933 wrongly rejected absentee ballots (don't ask) yielded a 225-vote edge for Franken heading into today's meeting of the state Canvassing Board, in which a winner -- presumably Franken -- will be named.
So, why won't Franken be a senator later today? Because of pending legal challenges that the incumbent's campaign thinks can sway the outcome -- the most important of which, dealing with the inclusion of 654 allegedly wrongly rejected absentee ballots (from largely pro-Coleman territory), will be decided by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
Now we can see an example of what Republican slant does to the news. Chris Cillizza and Paul Kane slant the news to suggest that Franken's lawyer is "underhanded" and that poor Coleman's didn't have an equally confident attorney. And what about that addied (don't ask) to suggest unorthodox counting of absentee ballots? This is what Americans must deal with in a world where the national press is owned by the mob, the same mob behind all of Bush and Cheney's criminal activities. The WaPo is doing something no honorable, professional newspaper should be doing - slanting the news in favor of one political party over another, intended on making Democrats look sleazy, underhanded and corrupt, but certainly after Bush's criminal reign in office - the exact opposite is true. The WaPo is a mob owned newspaper and slanting the news to make veiled insinuations (don't ask) whereby Chris and Paul hint that underhanded tactics were used BUT don't see it as their journalist responsiblity to tell readers exactly WHAT underhanded tactics were used, and therefore are simply lying about stanard legal applications that apply in the Minnesota laws regarding ballot counting.
