Contradictions

I love it - immediately after Norm Coleman softly tells us he's stopped running negative advertising, an ad by Americans for Job Security comes on, bashing Franken. If Norm can work with others, in his words, "even" with people across the aisle (implying that it's nearly as unthinkable as working with Martians or monsters), maybe he can convince his supporters to behave. Or, maybe not.
