What Goes Around ....

Comes around.

Back in 2004, when Senator John Kerry was the Dummycrat contender for POTUS, Teddyboy Kennedy did not want then-Governor Romney (Rep) to have the chance to appoint a *gasp* Republican as a replacement for Kerry in the Senate, should he somehow get elected.

So, the Massachusetts state legislature changed the law and gave control over the selection of senators to the voters. Now a special election must be held 145 - 160 days after a Senate seat becomes vacant. The winner would then serve out the remainder of the unexpired term.

Let the voters decide. Not a bad idea.

Now that Kennedy's Senate seat might become vacant soon, he wants
the governor and legislative leaders to disregard the democratic process and the laws of the Commonwealth and change the succession, again... back to the way it was ...
... Kennedy asks that Gov. Patrick be given authority to appoint someone to the seat temporarily before voters choose a new senator in a special election. -- Frank Phillips, Boston Globe
Even if this is merely a temporary appointment so that the Senate remains unbalanced (bwahaha) in terms of Democrat numerical majority ... Let the voters be damned, eh Ted?

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.

Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.

And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
