The longest Senate campaign in history is finally over. [diapers]

Democrat Al Franken, a satirist turned politician, was declared the winner of a Senate seat in Minnesota on Tuesday, clearing the way for President Barack Obama’s party to secure a critical 60-seat majority in the Senate.  [live from DC…]

Asked if he was ready to begin his illustrious career in the Senate, Franken couldn’t help but inject humor:

"I really will be catching up," he acknowledged. "I’ll hit the ground, if not running, trotting."

We look forward to following Mr. Al’s work. Good luck, sir.
