Just read the Roundup this morning and you'll be completely not at all shocked at the amount of Republican hand-wrining over the Kennedy appointment. And can you blame them?
I suppose the reason why the blue blogs and big Dems aren't reacting is because, well, they don't have to.
The best quote of the morning is from California Political News and Views's Steve Frank who dismisses the idea that Republicans will need to field a challenger because . . . well, clearly Schwarzenegger isn't planning on running again. It's the "we fixed the glitch" school of personnel management.
The first name to pop up: duh - Tom "Last Living Republican" McClintock.
Seems we'll finally get proof of the commonly held theory that had Schwarzenegger facecd a primary race, he'd be shopping T4 right now.
Actually, I have to give the best quote - er, paraphrase - award to former Governor Gray Davis for congratulating Schwarzenegger for choosing Kennedy. Man, that's rich. That's gotta feel good.
