PSH has broken out in New York state as Gov. David Paterson has appointed a pro-gun democrat to the U.S. Senate seat left behind by newly confirmed Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.
"If Gov. David Paterson thought announcing his choice to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton in the U.S. Senate after nearly two months of deliberation would bring an end to the political strife, he was clearly mistaken. Even before the governor took the podium Friday to introduce little-known upstate Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand as his pick, a Long Island congresswoman elected on a pledge to stem gun violence was telling reporters she would either challenge Gillibrand in the Democratic primary next year or find someone who would."
Already, the long knives are out trying to sully Rep. Gillibrand's reputation as a lawmaker who thinks for herself.
