    This whole thing would have never happened if it weren't for the fact that in 2004, the Legislature stripped the governor of his authority to name a temporary successor. They didn't want Romney choosing someone to take over for Kerry. Obviously Kerry lost so the whole exercise was meaningless.

    It is sweet and poetic. Justice how the "Massachusettes" moonbats ended up in this mess because of their own dirty tricks. :rofl: :rofl:

    The irony would be so much sweeter if it caused a few of them to get kicked out of office in November...but it won't happen.

    Schadenfreude (pronounced /ˈʃɑːdənfrɔɪdə/, German pronunciation: [ˈʃaːdənˌfʁɔʏ̯də]) Audio (US) (help·info) is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.[1] This German word is used as a loanword in English and some other languages, and has been calqued in Danish as skadefryd.


    Irony (from the Ancient Greek εἰρωνεία eirōneía, meaning hypocrisy, deception, or feigned ignorance) is a situation, literary technique, or rhetorical device, in which there is an incongruity, discordance, or unintended connection with truth, that goes strikingly beyond the most simple and evident meaning of words or actions.
