from http://www.SaveWRKO.com by Brian Maloney:
There is no way in hell that Republicans or conservatives (those are two distinct groups these days) want Ted Kennedy to pass away.
Not only is there nothing to be gained politically from his passing, it would actually represent a SETBACK for the GOP.
That’s because Kennedy is strongly disliked in much of the country and that has led to countless fundraising letters invoking his name that have generated untold millions for the cause.
Worse, Ted would be replaced with another Democrat, one probably extremely undeserving of the promotion.
I’d rather keep Kennedy there for another 20 years than see a truly scary individual like Bill Delahunt turn the US Senate into a Hugo Chavez fan club.
Do you really think Howie Carr and Jay Severin want to lose a favorite target?
So to those of you who are already busy using Ted’s illness to attack conservatives, forget it.
NOTE: right now, Howie is talking about how Deval Patrick would not be able to pick Kennedy’s replacement, thanks to a law intended to block Mitt Romney several years back.
Howie did bring up “what if the Dem-controlled MA legislature brought back the old law” (Gov being able to appoint successor) “and Deval appoints HIMSELF?”
