After Doug Jones' stunning victory in the Alabama senate special election, former one-term wonder US Senator Norm Coleman tweeted:
Doug Jones surest path to re-election: announce tomorrow he is switching parties & joining the GOP. This was not a pro-Jones, anti Trump, anti GOP vote tonite. It was a “couldn’t stomach a vote for Roy Moore “ night— Norm coleman (@normcoleman) December 13, 2017
Coleman had switched parties while mayor of St. Paul and was elected after Paul Wellstone's plane crashed in 2002. He lost his seat to Al Franken in 2008, which makes Bluestem truly appreciate his advice on getting re-elected to the United States Senate.

Kind of feels like @normcoleman is just trolling everyone right now.— Ben (@Tokesq) December 13, 2017
Careful, there. Voters are more able to spot the delusional since 2016.— Darkstabber (@KymShimmin) December 13, 2017
This is a parody account, right?— Drew Raun (@draunmpls) December 13, 2017
OMG, you are so for sale. You know all about opportunistically switching parties to advance yourself. Please, please, please run for office again so your life can be put on parade in the #metoo era. I’m begging you. #coleman2018 #doitnorman— Chuck (@stumpthedj) December 13, 2017
Are you still lobbying for Saudi Arabia?— Dr. Candiru (@DoctorCandiru) December 13, 2017
