Woof, Sheep, I'll be on topic. Why aren't you angry about this? Barney Frank is the most powerful openly Gay member of Congress. You are openly Gay. Democrats are the party that claims to owe allegiance and support to groups such as those that support your cause. You know if this seat was currently held by a Black the Dems would replace the candidate with a Black! Why is Barney Frank not being replaced by a GAY? Why a Kennedy? You should be angry!!!
Because there is no such thing as a "black seat" or a "gay seat" or a "woman's seat".

Democrats are much more charitable..especially in the last 50 years.
Not with just money.
Carter and Clinton are still out there working and making contributions. Sure can't say that about Reagan or the Bush family, although GHWB has made a couple token appearances with Clinton.
But anyone who can't recognize the contributions of the Kennedy family is either still in grade school or they've been under a rock for the last few decades.

Well we have a National Auto Glass Specification to enure safety of our windshields.

The Black Caucus is a group of black congressmen.

And rainbows form when light refracts through raindrops.

None of that means any particular seat in Congress is a "black seat" or a "white seat" or a "gay seat" or a "straight seat" or a "woman's seat" or a "man's seat" etc.

Still has nothing to do with a claim that any particular seat in Congress is a "black seat" or a "gay seat" or anything else.

Since the decision of who to replace Obama was up to the Gov of Illinois, Obama had nothing to do with it. In fact Blago ended up going to jail because he tried to sell it to the highest bidder.

YOU may think there are "black seats" because that's how the GOP works (token blacks, token asian, token women, etc), but the Dems just hold elections and let the voters decide.

It seems that, apart from our similarities in musical taste, we differ sharply on the definition of "facts".

It is well documented tha republicans give more to help others and charity than liberals. Don't your remember the very small amounts both Biden and Obama gave as a percent of their earnings compared to Bush and Chaney. I guess since you have your head in the sand, you must have true grit.
