Just when you thought Senator Majority Harry Reid couldn’t get any dumber, he surprises you.  Reid is now suggesting that the Senate should seat Senate contender Al Franken.

“We’re going to try to seat Al Franken,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told reporters on Wednesday, a few hours before he posed with Franken for photos just off the Senate floor. “There’s not a question in anyone’s mind, an assertion by anyone, that there’s been any fraud or wrongdoing in this election.”

The only problem?  This is against Minnesota state law.  Norm Coleman is following his legal avenue to challenge the recount process.  But who cares about legalities?  Also, when the Gov. Blagojevitch nomination of Roland Burris was being debated, Reid specifically stated that they needed the proper paperwork from the state to certify the seat.  Franken has no such paperwork; but obviously, that only matters some of the time.

Republicans have stated that they would filibuster any seating of Franken before the proper legal maneuvers were finished in Minnesota.

So, the lesson?  Never underestimate Harry Reid’s stupidity.
