He's trying to change election rulesagain.
Senator Ted Kennedy, who is gravely ill with brain cancer, has sent a letter to Massachusetts lawmakers requesting a change in the state law that determines how his Senate seat would be filled if it became vacant before his eighth full term ends in 2012. Current law mandates that a special election be held at least 145 days after the seat becomes available. Mr. Kennedy is concerned that such a delay could leave his fellow Democrats in the Senate one vote short of a filibuster-proof majority for months while a special election takes place.

One vote short? No one has heard from or seen Byrd since he was admitted to a hospital, and has anyone seen or heard anything about Ted Stevens?
40 years of your influence is more than we should have to endure.....leave us alone!
These people are amazing, changing laws to suit their needs at a given time. The sad part is that he will most likely get his way. What is it with MA?
Whomever coined the term “pig-faced sack-of-sh!t” musta been thinking about THIS Pig-Faced Sack of Sh!t when they did it.
YO TEDDY KEGGER ... you made your bed, now you lie in it.
Selfish, Inconsiderate Drunken Ba*****!! Typical LIBERAL! Don’t give a Damn about anyone or anything but yourselves and you neverending reach for Power.
On the day you die, I hope you are met at the GATES of HEAVEN by Mary Jo Kopecne, and she has the honor of Kicking your *** to HELL.
Truly one sorry SOB! I hope his Maker greets him well....
Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.
They changed it for Kerry to not be replaced by a Romney pick. Now they want to change it for the Democrat Governor to replace it.
You’d think he’d have bigger things to worry about than politics. It’s insane.
Perhaps the MA legislature could just make the seat Kennedy’s property in perpetuity and he and his heirs can just will it to whomever they choose.
This SOB has already done enough damage. The world would’ve been alot better place without him and his family
Relax Ted, the stress of this Senate vote is gonna kill you if you don’t realize what’s important in life....the End of Life is a time for Reflection, work should be the fartherest thing from your diseased mind.
You’re going to die in a Free Country, with Elections and Voters making decisions. If you want to Die in Venezuela, transportation can be arranged....they don’t care about no stinking elections there.
Perhaps you should relax, take it easy.....take a drive by a Lake over a bridge and ponder the Past ?
I agree. It is coming time for him to pass on. He has had a long and profitable career. He needs to spend the remaining time with his family and friends, reflecting on his good fortune. Instead, the besotted old tramp is worrying about a filibuster proof Senate. PTUH!
You’re right; Rush explained this very clearly this afternoon. I would think Ted would be more concerned at this point with finding a parish & priest that would even allow a Catholic funeral. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when he meets The Man.
Kennedy is a coward who has spent a lifetime living off the achievements of his famous brothers. It would be fitting if the last thing this SOB hears is that National healthcare has (yet again) gone done in flames. As far as I’m concerned, this guy has done incalculable damage to his country. I hope Mary Jo is there to give him what for wherever he ends up.
