At Least One Person Voted Brett Favre for President


Yesterday, as Brett Favre flirted with the possibility of retiring after the season ends, Minnesota’s state canvassing board continued its painstaking review of all the ballots challenged by the Coleman and Franken campaigns in their never-ending Senate death match. On one such ballot, some wiseass chose Coleman for Senate and wrote in “Brett Favre” for president. The Franken campaign lost its challenge, giving Favre at least one official vote for president. Meanwhile, that classic “Lizard People” ballot was tossed. How hard can the Seahawks be when you’ve already vanquished the Lizard People? [FiveThirtyEight]
