What a saga… 22 January 2009Posted by marisacat in 2010 Mid Terms, Democrats, Divertissements, Lie Down Fall Down Dems, U.S. Senate.
UPDATE 11:24 p.m.: It’s the NY dailies versus the Associated Press: The AP spoke to a source (one who is not “authorized to speak for Kennedy”) who “says she has renewed her determination to win appointment to the U.S. Senate seat once held by her slain uncle, Sen. Bobby Kennedy.” Basically Uncle Ted’s seizure only gave her “misgivings” but the source seems to think she’s still going for it. Are Cuomo, Gillibrand, Maloney et al. hoping the AP has it wrong?
Please, Caroline, go home. No matter the reason.
The Post‘s original, cryptic scoop offered no rationale for Kennedy’s withdrawal. Then, a person “told of [Kennedy's] decision” told the Times Kennedy chalked the move up to her worries about Sen. Ted Kennedy’s ill health.
What a story. The whole thing, not just the squibble of fiction dribbled out at the end..
NYT (who, I see, went with a photo from December of CKS at the Gee Whiz diner, so appropriate):
Mrs. Clinton resigned from the Senate on Wednesday, immediately after being sworn in as secretary of state. The governor has said privately and publicly that he would like to select a woman to succeed her, noting that if he were to choose a man, the number of female senators would drop to just 16.
So, Gillibrand moves up? And Maloney? (Not as if I know… I just guess from 2,700 + miles away.) I feel like I am at a table of donated items at the Goodwill, or the St Vincent de Paul. Charity. How miserable it all is.
In other news, not unrelated… Tapper on with Charlie.. saying, when asked about the relationship of Team Obama (don’t get too close and ask about Gawd there, Charlie!) to the media..
Well some of us try to report from our feet rather than our knees.
Local Democratic aligned talk radio is bitching, as I flip it on at 1:18 am to see what is up, that Hannity refers to Obster as “the Messiah”. ”How dare he”. And “it’s just plain wrong”.
Then quit with crafting that bullshit… it seems simple to me.
Good luck to all.
