November 2008: With the US Senate race in Minnesota too close to call, incumbent  Norm Coleman says, "If you ask me what I would do, I would step back." Challenger Al Franken tells the press he supports a recount. A quiet blogger named WineRev writes a diary at DailyKos.

Nearly eight months later:
Coleman has not yet stepped back. Franken has not been seated. WineRev is still writing.

Recounting Minnesota is a thoroughly entertaining, often irreverent, and always informative view of the 2008 Minnesota Senate recount, complete with reader comments and a timeline of this unexpected saga.
