In what amounts to a shocking coup, the reliably liberal editorial board of the Star Tribune newspaper has endorsed Republican Senator Norm Coleman’s bid for re-election.

To endorse Coleman, of course, the Strib had to snub a liberal comedian with a profane streak (Al Franken) and step over an idealistic third-party stalwart (Dean Barkley).  An excerpt from the endorsement:

“Coleman didn’t begin his Senate service as an agent of bipartisanship. But that’s the note on which he wound up his six-year term and which he has sounded repeatedly in his reelection campaign. We like the trend we’ve seen and believe Coleman is capable of taking it further.”
