As the recount between failed funny guy Al Franken and the Republican incumbent Norm Coleman spirals ever closer to a kung-fu batte of the legal eagles, I have a suggestion to resolve this whole mess. No, not an expensive run-off election. Nor tossing it to the Minnesota legislature to become some juicy bit of cat-nip. Something far simpler and hopefully in the skill sets of both men.
My idea? Let them compete against each other in a game of sport. Will have to skip baseketball least someone blubber. Fisticuffs? Might cause Al to sprain his delicate face. How about table tennis. Best three out of five games. With Christopher Walken as the referee of course.
Let the games begin. And may the best politician win.
