You watched him on "Saturday Night Live." You listened to him on Air America. You loved him in Stuart Saves His Family. OK, maybe not that last one.

But now comedian-turned-liberal-pundit-turned-politician Al Franken is finally going to join the U.S. Senate. Everyone knew he'd won the race months ago, but incumbent Norm "Douchebag" Coleman had been hanging on the seat by his fingernails.

Well, the NYT has just reported that the Minnesota Supreme Court today returned a unanimous verdict in Franken's favor and that Coleman has conceded. It only took him seven months.
