Massachusetts changes the rules... again

The Bad captions this Boston Globe article: "They have no shame".

The Massachusetts House voted late Thursday to change state law to give Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick the power to appoint a temporary successor to the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy until a special election is held early next year.

The vote has drawn controversy because a 2004 change in the law stripped then Republican Gov. Mitt Romney of the power to appoint a successor if Democratic Sen. John Kerry would have won the presidency."

C'mon, Bad: the end justifies the means. So quit whining. It's a "living and breathing" law... kinda like the Constitution.
