I can't wait NOT to watch the funeral and will probably be avoiding TV for the next 2 weeks. I don't think I can bear the media caterwauling over him like 15 year old girls over a rock star who died of an overdose.

I am delighted to note that Teddy's shuffling off the mortal coil puts a bigger roadblock in Zero's quest to foist on us a socialist health care system. Dear, Manipulative, Narcissistic Ted would not resign and let another fill his seat. He'd also finagled the Massachusetts state assembly to pass a law in 2004 that if a Mass. Senate seat becomes vacant, that it would NOT be the perogative of the governor (as is customary in most states) to appoint someone to fill the seat. In 2004 Teddykins thought Kerry had a hope in hell of beating Bush, and as Mitt Romney (Republican) was then governor, Teddykins was going to cry if Romney got to put a fellow republican in the senate seat (as would have been his right.)
Now a special election, 6 months from now, will have to be held. I'm delighted Teddykins put a knife in Zero's back by dying. Without Teddykins, Zero doesn't have a fillibuster proof senate for at least six months. By which time Zero's bill should be in hell too stoking the fires for Teddy.
