TSW Update

Yesterday's Headline:  "Lawmakers divided on filling seat."

Today's Headline:  "Votes are lined up to appoint a senator."

It is all about the Teddy Seat Warmer (TSW).

But, the important reason for this blog post is that it gives me a chance to apologize to Globe OpEd Columnist Ms Joan Vennochi.  In a blog post on Sunday evening I suggested that Ms Vennochi had brought up US Representative Joe Wilson (D-SC) one more time in her story on the situation on Beacon Hill regarding the TSW issue.  In fact, it was Massachusetts Senate President Therese Murray who noted Representative Wilson and decided that Representative Wilson and his outburst toward the President was a reason to support a TSW.  Frankly, I don't see it, but if you are pushing a TSW you may be looking for reasons.

Let the record show, I thought that Representative Wilson was out of line when he shouted out during the President's speech.  On the other hand, he is not the first and will not be the last.  I also think the US House of Representatives went too far in their vote to formally rebuke Representative Wilson.

Ironically, I'm quite sure nothing will galvanize opposition to the health care proposal faster than Massachusetts naming a designated TSW.

Pure avarice, and purely wrong of us to consider it this way, but such is the problem when it's not the good of the country, but the D vs. R war that motivates the "party faithful".

On BOTH sides!
