Remember back in 2004 when John Kerry was running for president? Remember how the democrats fought for legislation that would prevent Governor Mitt Romney from choosing a successor for Kerry's senate seat, fearing Romney would put in a Republican? Democrats won, citing how democracy must be thought of above all else. Democratic Rep. Will Strauss said a special election was necessary because such tactics have been used in a "totalitarian country" and that "one person, whoever happens to be governor, will not make the decision for you."
Now, to be fair to Mr. Strauss, he still stands by those comments even as democrats cry out that it is unfair to Massachusetts voters to be represented by only one senator. The democrats changed the law back in '04, and now that they need every vote they can get on Health Reform they want to change the law again. What is wrong with these people? Truth is, this health care plan probably won't pass as long as there is a Gov't sponsored health insurance plan. It just baffles me how blatant their hypocrisy is. It was okay back then, but now, because they need all the votes they can get, it's not. When isn't there an important issue needed to be voted on? I just can't wait to see how this turns out. It would just add fuel to the burning stake that liberals are going to be burned on in the coming few years. If they win, let's hope it's not going to be Caroline Kennedy who is put in as the interim senator.
