    Obviously, it's not the Connies that don't like it when it doesn't work the way they thought. Sucks to be runnin' scared...don't it?

    Right wingers are not the ones trying to change the rules again in Massachusetts. Obviously left wingers in Massachusetts do mind when things do not work their way. Because if they didn't mind then they wouldn't be changing the rules like that. You are the pot calling the kettle black.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is how it's done.

    When you have a Democratic Governor and the State Legislature is 88% Democratic you don't give right wing cry babies the time of day.

    You get a firm commitment from the replacement he will not run in the upcoming election (because incumbents are at a huge advantage) and ensure your State has full representation in the Senate.

    Then the GOP can get blown out in the Special election by whoever the new Democratic candidate is.
    This is such a pile of crock it defies the imagination. So a Democrat Legislature passes a law requiring a special election when a REPUBLICAN Governor was in power to prevent him from appointing Republicans in the event of a vacancy, but now that there is a DEMOCRAT in charge they want to by-pass their own laws for purely politically motivated purposes.

    You just cannot fabricate the level of hypocrisy, lies, distortions and partisan BS Democrats wallow in these days.

    The vast double standard that represents Liberal thinking is most apparent when News Papers, the same ones who dragged Obama's lame ass across the finish line in 2008, write this story as just another ho-hum story and basically support the despicable hypocrisy and double standard this State Legislature represents.

    Yes folks, the party that promised you fiscal responsibility and transparency continues to wallow in its own failures, lies, hypocrisy and distortions and continues to expose itself for the vast partisan political machine it has always been.

    Hehe, lefties changed it the first time, and now again. They are hypocrites.

    So when should we expect the Wellstone-style memorial push for KennedyCare?

    The law should be consistent, not a plaything to be changed on a whim to suit the convenience of the lawmakers. Playing these political games with the rules of succession is despicable, and you are too blind a partisan to see it.

    Anyone know what the Mass Constitution says about replacing a official when death or any other situation happens? I know it tends to vary by state.

    We can expect it to happen, today...

    "You've heard of 'win one for the Gipper'? There is going to be an atmosphere of 'win one for Teddy,'" Ralph G. Neas, the CEO of the liberal National Coalition on Health Care, told ABC News.
