What's Next?

Long Knives Cometh
 I 'm amazed that I never found this video before.  Truly.  I'm sure it's because I just wasn't lucky in my web searches over the past 10 years or so. But here's a prediction. Now that there's no longer a Kennedy with sufficient stature and power to bully people into silence (Who? Patrick Kennedy?  He's a joke, the rest  like Bobby Jr.- morons.) the floodgates are open. Look for a flood of  books, articles  and documentaries about Ted, and other Kennedys as well. It won't be pretty if you're a Kennedyphile, the truth never is with them.

 Giddyup.

I heard a rumor that they were going to name a Carrier for Uncle Teddy. It will be 50% wider than other Carriers in the Navy, Will be Christened with a bottle of Scotch rather than Champaign, and on it’s maiden voyage, they will test the catapults by shooting black Oldsmobiles off the deck….

After which it will immediately sail to Vladivostok to offer it’s aid to the Russians in sinking the USS Ronald Reagan…..

Florida's Gov. Crist accused of 'cronyism'

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist on Friday selected his closest political confidant to serve out the term of retiring Republican Sen. Mel Martinez for 16 months, until the Republican governor himself hopes to take over the seat.

In the choice that quickly brought Democratic charges of cronyism, Mr. Crist ended a long and very public selection process by naming former chief of staff George LeMieux - a self-described "Charlie Crist Republican" - as the state's next senator.

Mark Ferrulo, executive director of the liberal organization Progress Florida, called the LeMieux pick "shocking."

"Instead of an experienced statesman looking out for the best interests of Floridians, we get a partisan political operator who will vote based on one criterion and one criteria only - what will help his former boss win election in 2010," he said.

State Democratic Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman called the choice "a glaring example of political cronyism."


The Congressional Research Service said there have been 184 Senate appointments since 1913, when the 17th Amendment became effective, replacing the selection of senators by state legislatures with direct popular voting.

Of those, seven were the widows of senators, two the spouses of the governor, three the sons of senators and one the daughter of a governor.

Forget Crist.  Forget LeMieux.  That Democrats have the effrontery to scream unfair is to insult us gratuitously.
