Pre-recount: Norm’s lead slips to 236

Secretary of State’s website, 7:20 p.m. Thursday.

At this rate, we’re getting deliciously close to the switchback moment when Norm’s recount taunt at Al — “up to him whether such a step is worth the tax dollars it will take to process” — applies to the utterer, not the intended victim.

    This reminds me of Michael Barone’s comment that in politics “all process arguments are insincere.”

    If Franken had been ahead, he would also have declared victory.

    That’s what conventional wisdom says you should do, based on observations of the 2000 Florida recount process.

    Let’s just save the moral outrage and recount the votes.

    Hopefully we have a trustworthy Secretary of State.
