"Like electoral popcorn"

As the Minnesota Canvassing Board has begun to examine hundreds of disputed ballots in the Minnesota Senate race, the Minneapolis Star Tribune is airing a live feed of the hearings complete with color commentary during the breaks.

During the breaks in the hearings, Minneapolis Star Tribune columnists DJ Tice and James Lileks have been co-hosting a show from the newsroom providing analysis of what’s happened so far.

“It is oddly seductive. It’s like electoral popcorn,” Lileks said on air, as he was taking viewer questions on air via Twitter.

Yet another example of why the Minnesota recount is nothing like Florida’s presidential recount in 2000.
