On MSNBC today, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, gunslinger that she is, fired back at National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn, the Texas senator, for comments he made earlier this week.
Host David Shuster said to Klobuchar: “Your colleague, Republican Senator John Cornyn, said that if Democrats try to seat Al Franken before this goes all the way to the Supreme Court, he threatened World War III. What’s your reaction?”
The senior senator from Minnesota replied:
“Well, one of the other things he said, David, he said that we could go in Minnesota with one senator for years. And I would love to know how Texas would like that. I think that Minnesota would prefer to make its own decisions.
“I think we have a process that’s taken a while. I think it’s a fair process. It’s going to — after these votes are opened up, Norm Coleman will make a decision about whether he wants to go up to the Minnesota Supreme Court. There’s a process in place for that. Then I’m hoping it’s done.”
