Isn't this the philosphy of the Democratic party in Massachusetts? The fact that Scott Brown is actually leading Martha Coakley in the run for a seat that Democrats, or at least a Democrat, has held for decades is a testament to how upset people are with the current Congress. Not that the current Congress gives a fig what the people think.
Instead of accepting the will of the people, something so foreign to the current leadership that even the suggestion of it sends them into gales of confused laughter, they are attempting to change the laws to keep him out of office until they can pass their stinking pile of crap health care bill. Even if he is the clear winner, the Democratic machine plans to delay his confirmation until after the health care vote. Thereby changing the rules. Of course this is something they've done in the past but in the other direction. Interesting how the rules can be changed to suit their purposes. No wonder they're playing fast and loose with The Constitution.
I can't help but wonder what will happen if Scott Brown wins (God please let that happen) and the leadership refuses to allow him a vote as the duly elected representative of the people. Whatever protests follow, I'm sure the people will just be dupes of the Repbulican party and nothing but astroturf instead of grass roots. I'm sure their outrage will just be manufactured and not real. I'm sure their concerns will be dismissed and their names will be added to the list of potential domestic terrorists.
This is despicable. It really shows the slavering need for power in our current leadership that they have adopted the philosophy of "when all else fails, cheat."
