9:05 AM Aug 27th: Amusing that the cable nets are fulfilling stereotypes in Ted K coverage. FOX=subdued, CNN=moderate amount, NBC/MSNBC=WW III alert level.

9:18 AM Aug 27th: Politics never stops and Ted K would understand that we're all speculating about his replacement. Actually, it's been going on since May 2008.

9:20 AM Aug 27th: Almost the entire MA House delegation, plus ex-members, want to run, plus state AG and others. All D. GOP can forget this one. No contest.

9:22 AM Aug 27th: Dynasty is NOT a good thing in a democratic society. Maybe MA voters will recognize that, at last. Hope springs eternal.

9:25 AM Aug 27th: GOP complaining that it's hypocritical for Dems to change rules after stripping Gov. Romney(R) of appt power. Get over it. Elections matter.

9:28 AM Aug 27th: Holding power means never having to say you're sorry, or hypocritical. Hypocrisy is the lifeblood of politics. Read history for proof.

8:34 PM Aug 27th: Can Ted K-generated sympathy pass health care bill? Best bet is with wavering Senate Dems. No R senators will sign on just to salute Ted.

3:18 PM Aug 30th: In naming LeMieux, Crist looked out for his favorite person, C Crist. Very reminiscent of VP Biden picking Ted Kaufman(D) for his DE seat.

11:26 PM Sep 1st: Smart move by AG Martha Coakley (D) to jump head first into MA SEN race. In politics, she who hesitates is lost. Might be 1st MA woman SEN.

8:47 AM Sep 2nd: Supreme Court circles are buzzing that John Paul Stevens may finally be retiring in 2010, due to his slow pace in hiring clerks.

9:09 AM Sep 2nd: God certainly does involve Him/Herself in some real messes. Now God has backed embattled Gov. Mark Sanford(R-SC). Source: Mark Sanford.

1:11 PM Sep 2nd: Sanford and God again. God, do you follow Twitter? If so, please message me. For once I'd love to have a direct pipeline to Yr current views.

1:12 PM Sep 2nd: I promise to keep it short. First, the usual question about the meaning of life. Then, a few tips on '10 and '12 to keep the Crystal Ball #1.
