This is just lovely. Cancer-stricken senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) is leaving office. So the Dems that control the Massachusetts state legislature want to change the law requiring his replacement to be determined in a special election so that his replacement would instead be appointed by the governor. This way Governor Deval Patrick, a Democrat, can appoint another government-worshiping Leftist to the Senate.
Not so bad, I guess, until we learn that gubernatorial appointment was the law prior to 2004. This was until Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) ran for president and the Dems controlling the legislature created the special election requirement to prevent then Governor Mitt Romney, a Republican, from appointing a replacement if Kerry won.
