Hypocrisy again- over and over and over.
Return to 2004 - The People's Republic of Massachusetts. Senator John Kerry is running for President and there is a good chance that he may win. Mitt Romney is Governor and he is a Republican. If Kerry wins, Romney will appoint a Republican to replace him in the Senate. We can't have that, so the Massachusetts State legislature passes legislation requiring a special election five month's after the Senate seat becomes vacant. After all, Democrats outnumber Republicans in Massachusetts by 3 to 1, so the chances the Democrat would be elected were pretty good. Fast forward to 2009 - Senator Ted Kennedy dies, so there is now a open Senate seat with a special election scheduled for January, but wait, Barack Obama needs every Democrat, now, that he can get to pass his Socialist agenda in Washington. Never fear, the Massachusetts legislature goes back to work and passes legislation allowing now Democrat Governor Deval Patrick to appoint an interim Senator until the general election is held. Presto, instant Democrat in the US Senate. How is again you spell HYPOCRISY?
