Weeks after the election we are still waiting for the final outcome of the Minnesota Senate race between Al Franken (D) and Norm Coleman (R), in which Coleman came out ahead by 215 votes before the recount, the number being so low that Franken was entitled to a recount.
They have gone up and down as the recount has been ongoing and the latest news is 78 percent of the precincts are finished (81 as of now) and Coleman still holds a 210 vote lead, according to the Star Tribune, with other tabulations putting the lead as low as 170+.
More than 78 percent of the votes had been recounted as of Monday night, and Republican Sen. Norm Coleman's advantage over DFLer Al Franken stood at 210, according to a Star Tribune compilation of results reported to the secretary of state and gathered by the newspaper. Before the recount, Coleman led Franken by 215 votes out of about 2.9 million cast, a margin that has fluctuated over the past week.
There also seems to be an equal number of challenges from both campaigns, 3,000 of them according to that same article.
Andrew Malcolm from LA Times' Top of the Ticket shows us some examples of the type of "challenges" that are being seen.
A couple examples of a ballots for Coleman that are being challenged by Franken:
Then one for Franken that is being challenged by Coleman:
Talk about a huge waste of time and tax payers money!
According to SC Times .com, Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer Randy Schreifels is calling some of these challenges "frivolous".
But as of 10 a.m., there already had been seven ballots challenged where voter intent was very clear, he said in a news release.
Officials have until December 5, 2008 to complete their recount and deal with all challenges.

Jihad is not just fought with guns and bombs one of its most effective weapons is Political Correctness. The Organization of Islamic Conference are trying push through a bill in the UN that would make defamation of religion a crime under international Law. It might sound like a noble effort, but its real purpose is to targeting the US and Western Europe branding them as Islamophobic (its not paranoia if they are REALLY after you). Under this bill every time one says that there is a global war on Islamic Terror they will be violating international law.

The 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in Durban quickly became a disgusting display of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel Propaganda. Much of the hatred took place in a six-day NGO Forum in a large cricket stadium attended by six thousand representatives of close to two thousand NGOs. It is there that the "Durban Strategy" was formulated, that is delegitimize the Jewish State via branding it as a racist entity. To his credit Then Secretary of State Colin Powell walked out of the conference.
Last month the United Nations released the draft statement for the follow-up conference scheduled for Geneva in April 2009. This conference is planned to be worse than the first one, It is an Anti-Jewish, Anti-America and Anti-Freedom HATE FEST. There are even sections which will restrict freedom of speech. Other nations have announced that they will not attend.
The Secretary of State had decided to punt it to the NEXT administration.
The United States should show leadership and morality. President-elect Obama should announce immediately that we will NOT attend this hate fest. His decision to attend or not will be an early test of his true intentions regarding the Middle-East, as well as the appeasement of Islamo-fascism and anti-Semitism.
