#1 At least State and Lurch are ideologically congruent...

#2 As soon as the official announcement is made, I plan to write each of my Senators strongly recommend that the vote against John F'n Kerry. I will point out John's history of near treason during the VietNam war.

They won't, of course, because they are both Democrats - and Senators take care of their own.

#3 The only upside I see here is he will no longer be a Senator. The downside is that Massachusetts will appoint someone else nearly as bad.

Lurch will be he in heaven, or rather, will be with his fellow Marxists. And his wife whatshernamerhymeswithpickles will finally be amongst her peers.

I too will write my Senators, Betty the Marxist Liar and Lurch. I am sure it will help.

Another triple martoona please, barkeep.

#4 Thought this was going to happen. Rice was damaged goods on both the right and the left. She had enemies in her own party. Lurch is no great shakes either.

#6 Why the long face, Senator?

Whiskey Mike - there will be a temp. Senator appointed by the governor, Deval 'Mini Me' Patrick. MA no longer appoints the Senator that would fill out the reminder of Lurch's turn; it's a special election to be held within 150 or 180 days of Lurch leaving the Senate. Scott Brown FTW!

#8 Hagel at Defence will be much worse than Lurch at State.

#9 Bet they both get confirmed 99-0. Always good to see a few of the "boys" move up in the organization.

#10 Hagel, a Republican, is currently the top candidate for secretary of defense.

Doubt it. Remember, every decision from the O-Team has two equally important considerations. The first is: What’s the right choice? And second: What will cast Obama in the most favorable light? These guys won’t be able to resist the obvious two-fer – a woman and fellow Smart-Power interventionist.
Look for the “historic” nomination for Defense - Michèle Flournoy.

FTFY, D-Guy.

#12 The Kenyan light-giver needs no assistance from white mortals. He casts his own magnificent light.

#20 Scott Brown FTW!

I doubt it this time, Raj. Never gaining any serious traction against Fauxcahontas at any time during the 2012 campaign has probably destroyed Brown's political brand. Per RCP, Brown's polling averages never hit 48% vs. Lieawatha, who then benefitted from a late infusion of national Quislingrat cash to cruise over the finish line.
