Isn't there a formality to go through first?

It's called an “election” where various candidates “campaign”.

It's an American thing — maybe that's why the remaining sandwich Senator doesn't understand.

And her experience is, what, putting him bed after a drinking binge?

She has the right last name, what more qualification could she need?

Hatch and McCain take turns on seeing who can be the most stupid GOP Senator.

I say that John McCain should replace Teddy-boy in the Senate, Massachusetts gets a liberal mealy-mouthed publicity hound to replace their recently departed liberal mealy-mouthed publicity hound, Arizona gets rid of the RINO pox they’ve been dealing with for WAY too many years, and the GOP (if it has any lingering common sense at all) can seek to get a REAL conservative elected Senator from Arizona!

Actually, if they were stupid enough to change the law....then appoint her (which is a temp appointment anyway)...you end up with a very weak candidate. Vicki is not much of a public speaker, and to be honest...Vicki is not a true Kennedy. I think most Republicans in the state view Vicki as a imaginary “Ted” that simply fixes the current problem and lacks any concrete structure. By latching onto Vicki...you create an easy candidate to beat in a real election.

Plus I think on top of it, in one of the newsstories, she did say no, but you never know.

Even after Teddy spent a lifetime in the Senate, she’s probably more qualified than he was. Which is not saying a whole lot. She couldn’t possibly be dumber, drunker, or more corrupt.

Rather AZ should “retire” Sen.McCain for once and get a REAL conservative.

I am not suprised that my home state’s Sen.Dodd would also say the same thing. He knows his position came from his father.

Hey, I thought you Americans had a revolution, or something, to rid yourselves of dynastic rulers.

We Canadians have a dynastic Head of State (Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.). That seems to satisfy most of our urges to create other, home-grown, dynasties.

Sounds like a feudal monarchy, not a republic.

Every time an elected official dies, they get replaced by a family member. The people of this country drool when they watch TV news and go to the polls.

Her experience consists of being virtually sold to Kennedy to keep her corrupt father, Judge Edmund Reggie, out of Federal prison.

I see very little difference in an appointment of someone like Vickie, or a vote of the same idiots that gave us Orca Kennedy for the last 47 years!!

If Hatch does this, he must be the next to go, period. I'm utterly PUKING at what these morons will do.

Is it surprising that Ras has a poll today showing a majority want ALL elected representatives replaced in November? and that almost 70% say the GOP leadership is out of touch with the base?

Let’s assume Vickie doesn’t want it... well, not a problem... there is always RFK JR. the environmental wacko,
Carolyn (is she still a Schlossberg?) Kennedy, or any host of other ne’er-do-well clan members.

Stay in your pew, Vicki...

When Vicki runs in the primary, perhaps Hatch can come up to Springfield and host an event for her.

The Republican candidate can count on the locals to get message out! Maybe if we work real hard, we can convince the RNC to support a Republican when Vicki runs for re-election. Ya think?

WHAT A COMPLETE JACKASS.
