    Oh the hypocrisy! In 2004, Kennedy fought to get this law in place, so that the then-Republican governor could not appoint a replacement in case Kerry's presidential bid were successful. A special election MUST take place, the voice of the people must be heard!

    Flash forward to post-Kennedy Massachusetts. The state house has now approved overturning that law, replacing it with, apparently, the original that wasn't good enough then.

    Damn the integrity issue, forget about ethics! Political position and power is all that matters, and yet they call US hypocrites? What a joke!

    Reuters' article here.

    Poor Massachusetts Dems! The heart of their quandary (from above noted Reuters' article):

    it was a dumb idea to change it, its a worse idea to change it back at this time...The dems should in fact feel ashamed to have done this...but also it would suck to have no rep for months in the Senate...As a state that did, I know it sucks...regardless, its there bed to lie in.
