On Election Night two months ago, it appeared that America was only sending one famous Harvard alum who was also a well-publicized cocaine user to Washington. Not so! Today the Minnesota State Canvassing Board certified results showing Democrat Al Franken as the winner of the Minnesota Senate race. Lizard people, unite!

This means that incumbent Senator Norm Coleman has now lost to two of the most comical figures in the recent political landscape: Franken and previously to Jesse "The Body" Ventura in the 1998 race for Minnesota's governorship. Coleman's biggest victory, winning the senate seat in 2002, came after incumbent Senator Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash two weeks before the election.

Coleman is now expected to challenge the victory in court. The win may be Franken's greatest achievement since Franken as Stuart Smalley was able to get pro ballers Charles Barkley and Mugsy Bogues to bury the hatchet in 1993.
