The Minnesota Election Trial: Bad Comedy

Also at a press conference today, Coleman lawyer and spin-man Ben Ginsberg hailed the precedent set by a court decision today to let in two-dozen previously-rejected Franken ballots, as it affirms their position that there remain votes to be counted.

Ginsberg also blasted Charlie Nauen, the lawyer for those Franken-voters, for filing a memorandum against the Coleman camp's "reverse class-action" lawsuit to force the review and counting of all 11,000 rejected ballots. Ginsberg said that Nauen's actions demonstrated "a Franken proclivity for cherry-picking like banshees."

Cherry-picking like banshees? What does that even mean???
