I take full credit

Since I have traveled to Minnesota for Christmas (I'm that crazy) let me take the opportunity to claim responsibility for the phrase "Senator Al Franken" and his apparent obtaining of six-tenths of "an Al Franken Decade".

In a unanimous decision handed down just now, the state Supremes denied Coleman any relief in a lawsuit he was waging to deal with allegations of double-counted absentee ballots, which his campaign says have given an illegitimate edge to Al Franken...

Simply put, Coleman is in very big trouble right now. With Al Franken leading by 47 votes, this lawsuit was Coleman's best shot at coming from behind. And it just failed, making a Franken win nearly a foregone conclusion when this recount finishes up in early January.
