Coleman will lose the recount

I hope that my prediction is as far off as the prediction for Comet Khoutek.
Here is what I entered in comments at Hot Air:
I predict Coleman will lose. Franken won't win, Coleman will lose.
My evidence: Last Wednesday I put up a notice on our blog about the recount and where to sign-up as a volunteer for Coleman. Ed even linked to it in an update. I signed up at the Coleman site to become a recount volunteer. I signed up for text message alerts and email notifications. I entered in additional information that I had been an election judge for 6 years, have been involved in Republican organizations for 10 years where I live. 2 days later I got a confirming email:"By receipt of this e-mail, you have indicated willingness to volunteer in the recount effort and will be contacted by a local field staff member to confirm availability. Individuals should expect to be contacted by a member of the recount team by Friday, November 14."
I contacted the head of our Congressional District. She forwarded my email to the head of Coleman's campaign in our CD with a note that this person does contact people. I also included a note that Franken had an overflow crowd of volunteers that came to be trained to be recount observers. That was Saturday.
The recount starts tomorrow.
I've yet to hear from Team Coleman.
I have better things to do with my time than wasting it working for a organization that doesn't know how to fight.
I'm out.
Once again, as I scream into the wind: this is what Horowitz says in his book "The Art of Political War"- Republicans can't and won't fight. Coleman did a McCain (a political stunt that was ill advised) by pulling "negative" ads. How'd that work Norm?
I'm tired of charging the mountain while so many Republicans are either running down the mountain or are REMFs (NSFW BTW). Or are unconverted Captain Renault's.

Don't get discouraged X. You have done your best to get involved in the recount process. It's their loss!! This is exactly why McCain lost the election. The republicans lack organization...they are in the wind! No direction and focus.

Don't feel badly; I won a recount in my first election and apparently Norm's folks don't want my help either!!!

Franken isn't the only leftist trying to steal an election.

I had a flash of possible optimism (maybe I've had a stroke). Is there any possibility that the reason they didn't call you back is that they reached their allowed number of volunteers before they got to your name?

No. They contacted me late Tuesday after I sent another email to the Second Congressional District (John Kline) Chair. My time is valuable and has now been filled up for the next three weeks.
