    and Senator Inouye isn't royalty, why should he be able to proclaim his heir?  This is America, where crony politics should be looked down upon.

      the duly elected representative of the people in the senate?

      Oh? What's that? No? His appointment (seriously, the word is in the bloody dairy title) will be no more democratic than what you're deriding?
