    Dems in NJ should be raising holy hell about how Lautenberg's seat should be filled by a Democrat, seeing as how that's what NJ voters voted for in the first place.

    If Lautenberg was a Republican, the Right Wing Noise Machine would be flipping out at the thought of a Dem governor replacing a Republican seat with a Democrat. And they'd be right.

    This kind of thing happens regularly (relatively speaking), and Governor's always (as far as I know) pick someone from their own party for these appointments, and most people understand and expect that.  

    Yeah, it might just be a caretaker to fill the seat until the next election, but I don't think it's unreasonable that he'd pick a Republican for the seat...just as Dem Governor in a red state would be perfectly entitled to pick a Dem to replace Republican Senator.

    Black Holes Suck.
