Posted on 08/20/2009 7:43:11 PM PDT by GOP_Lady
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.
The SWIMMER did not write that letter. His staff did.
I was thinking, is Ted seeing some polls which might indicate that the rats might lose the seat if a special election is held? If the rats in Mass begin considering this, then I would assume that polling data is showing big problems, even in this blue state.
Well, gee, Ted, if you want it, you got it. We’re here to serve you till your dying day.

**[trying to think of an answer thats not utterly tasteless...and failing...]**
Can’t be much worse than my response #7 ...
MaryJo is waiting for him!
Even approaching death, he has chosen evil over good.
I’ll bet, above all, he wants to live.
Maybe he’s not the originator of the bill...just a signer?
If Kennedy had done the responsible thing and resigned his Senate seat as soon as his cancer was diagnosed, this wouldn’t be an issue now. Just like Clinton, he should have departed when ethics dictated it was time to go. But Democrats think ethics are something only Republicans have and only that so they can be exploited for political purposes.
He's probably got a good idea where he's headed. So, you bet he wants to live!
you old gristled POS, would someone please smack this leech off the gov’t teat, already!
the world won’t miss this piece of sh!t the moment its gone. Aside from running to hide his coward @ss from a drowning a young girl he was running with while married, this POS has ruined countless lives as a so called lion of the left. (a lion has courage) this clown is a liar. A liar to God, and REAL AMERICANS . it has countless followers and admirers, so does satan, so what.
die now an be gone ted the coward kennedy, f. u.
If karma really does exist, he shouldn’t die of cancer—he should drown in his own bedpan.
I tend to agree with you.
It is unbelievable that all these elderly (and some of them senile) senators and congresspeople would rather die in office than do the right thing by resigning or at least grooming and promoting a successor. This one failing, above all else, shows their lack of character, selfishness, and complete disregard for the people they are supposed to represent.
I’m guessing he would think the same, regardless of his beliefs.
What precious decayed Teddy wants...precious decayed Teddy gets.
Selfish, Inconsiderate Drunken Ba*****!! Typical LIBERAL! Dont 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. I could not have said it better, so your post bears repeating over & over & over! BRAVO!!!
IF KENNEDY HAD BEEN IN PRISON FOR MURDER ALL THESE YEARS, IT WOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE NOW EITHER!!! ROT IN HELL SWIMMER!
Hey, let’s give Teddy a chance. If he can survive 1/100th of that time in a submerged car, special election it is!
You were too kind by far when you wrote,
“Kennedy is a coward who has spent a lifetime living off the achievements of his famous brothers.”
No, his brothers did not achieve Jack S$#T. The only thing they achieved was “MARTYRDOM” and we the people outside of Taxatussets have been paying for it since. How damn many times have we heard, “we owe it to them (Kennedys) for the tragic ends of the brothers’ lives?
With what is left of his cranial ability, I hope that he is now realizing that his lifetime goal of socialized medicine is going to die an agonizing death, and with it guarantee that many Democrats will not be re-elected in 2010.
How does Kennedy know that he’ll vote on it when the final bill hasn’t been written? Isn’t he going to read it first?
The RATS are afraid that they won’t be able to muster the 50 votes needed to illegally get the health care bill through. Boy, are they a sorry lot.
Health care for all Ted.... here’s Ted in a neck brace, and he wasn’t even injured... imagine that! Pure lying liberal, danger to himself and all others.
Neck braces and automobile aquariums are just a few of the items now available at the Ted Kennedy memorial store. Special price on the floating Volkswagen bug— good for all kinds of social situations including negligent homicide.
Or just google Ted Kennedy neck brace photo.
Can somebody figure out what “medals” Kerry is wearing on his fatigue shirt pocket. Sure sign he didn’t earn them— you don’t wear them like that.
The gigolo fraud and the... but I repeat myself.
Ted Stevens is no longer a Senator.
