Judge To Rule Before Noon Today On Massachusetts Senate Appointment | TPMDC
The GOP is seeking to nullify the appt, on the grounds that Gov Patrick didn't have the authority to declare an emergency, in order to make the appt.

Judge Rules In Favor Of Kirk Senate Appointment, Against Massachusetts GOP Challenge | TPMDC
So, I guess Kirk will be sworn in then? I wonder if he already has been sworn in...
Why would your "selective" outrage with your perceived notions about my "double" standards have anything to do with this thread debate?
If you have issues with me over your "perceptions" about my presumed “double standards,” you are more than welcome to take your selective outrage to the basement and PROVE that I apply a double standard to any of my values instead of blathering the thread with such nonsense?
The bottom line here is that you haven't made any coherent arguments countering the FACTS and REALITY of the debate and instead filled the thread with your emotional hysterics about your PERCEPTIONS of a "double standard" which even you would be hard pressed to prove.
So please spare us your disingenuous attempts to be the arbiter of double standards when you so obviously ignore those of your fellow Liberals and those within the Democrat party as has been exposed on this thread.
Here’s a pertinent question for you as you play the arbiter of the “double standard”; do you think it is a double standard to change an existing law to NOT allow a Republican Governor to have the opportunity to appoint a vacant senate seat and then when a Democrat is in power, rescind that law enabling the Democrat to appoint a Senator?
