    Was good enough for democratics in New Jersey, when they were already past the deadline, to jam Lautenberg in there.

    Goose, meet the sauce.

    How aristocratic of them to choose the nominee on behalf of the voters. I mean we certainly wouldn't want the common people choosing their own nominee. It's not like this is a Representative Republic or anything.

    Taz, it happens all the time. A seat-filler is appointed until the election.
    Knowing Crist he'll appoint one of his little puke buddies.
    maybe when he doesn't get the Senate seat he wants, he'll try for Congress.

    I guess they should be like Mass. and change the laws so it helped the Democrats keep their seat when it looked like a Republican might get that vacant senate seat.
