All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

What's Good for the Goose...

You remember that old saying don't you? Well, it doesn't apply in Massachusetts where the state senate has passed a bill revision that would permit the state's Democratic governor to appoint a replacement for Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate. It was just five years ago that the now-deceased Kennedy asked the state legislature to pass a bill requiring a special election to fill an open U.S. Senate seat when Kennedy thought that John Kerry would defeat Bush and wanted to prevent then Republican governor Mitt Romney from replacing Kerry (D) with a Republican. The bill goes to the Massachusetts House this week and if passed Deval Patrick (D) is expected to sign it. Unfortunately this is the way the game is played, but to be so arrogant and brazen is disgusting and the ultimate form of hypocrisy.
