Random reflections 'bout the week that was ... (part two)

Byrd boo-hoos

Did you see Robert Byrd weeping like a little girl on the floor of the U.S. Senate upon learning that Ted Kennedy has a inoperable brain tumor? Said Byrd:

"I want to take a moment to say how distraught and terribly shaken I am over the news of my dear friend, my dear, dear friend, Ted Kennedy."

Reckon Byrd was distraught and terribly shaken over the death of Marry Jo Kopechne -- you know, the young lady Ted Kennedy, well, killed?

The irony is delicious

The official script of Always-Aggrieved Democrats goes like this (see HBO's Recount, which premiers today):

Al Gore lost Florida in 2000 because Team Bush, which was in cahoots with the U.S. Supreme Court, successfully stopped the counting of every vote and intimidated vote-counters and blah, blah, blah.

Fast forward to 2008 ...

The Democratic National Committee is steadfastly refusing to seat Florida's delegates to this summer's convention because the state conducted its primary too close to St. New Hampshire's primary. Thus, Hillary Clinton's resounding victory in Florida is to be for naught come August; her delegates from that state ain't gonna be counted at the Democratic Convention.

Whatever happened to "let every vote be counted" ... especially in the state of Florida? I can NOT be the only one who's just marveling at the Democrats' hypocrisy; and I can NOT be the only one who appreciates the irony that's on full display here.
