Flashback: Republican Senator Paul Coverdale Died of a *Stroke* In 2000, And The Democratic Governor Appointed A Democrat In His Place

NYT link, so don't bother clicking, but trust me, it's true.

And of course Jim Jeffords jumped parties in 2002, giving the nation a Democratically controlled (well, halfsies) Senate that it had not in fact voted for.

The media, of course, was ecstatic.

But we'll be told that the very-Republican state of South Dakota has been voting the party, not the man, all these years, and so a Democrat must be appointed in Johnson's place (to honor him, even though that actually honors his party, not him), or that the South Dakota must not possibly put forward a replacement Republican because that would change the balance of power in the Senate against the wishes of the voters.


Thanks to Andy the Squirrel.

All of this is a little premature, I guess, but I suppose it's best to be ready for the screaming.
