A Republican who thinks he is above the law.

Okay, I'll narrow that down. A Minnesota Republican and soon to be indicted former United States Senator who thinks he's above the law:

"The overwhelming weight of the evidence indicates that the Nov. 4, 2008, election was conducted fairly, impartially and accurately," the panel said in its unanimous decision.

In rejecting Coleman's arguments, the panel said the Republican essentially asked it to ignore Minnesota election requirements and adopt a more lenient standard allowing illegal absentee ballots to be counted.

The panel also rejected Coleman's comparison of Senate election problems to those in the 2000 presidential race in Florida.

Unlike Florida, Minnesota has statewide standards for absentee voting that are "uniform and explicit and apply in every county and city," the panel wrote.

Congratulations, Senator Franken.
