"I am making phone calls on this right now," writes our beloved Crystal Patterson of tedkennedy.com, Internet Operations Manager of Kennedy for Senate. She's as cute and smart as a button, the light of our local-politicians'-foot-to-the-fire life, so we can never stay angry with her for long, but hey, little gal, what's the story? That was 9:21 this morning, and we haven't heard a word from you since re where your boss, the senior senator from Taxachusetts, stands on Senator Tom Coburn's proposed "offset package" aimed at identifying budget cuts to pay for hurricane relief, announced a week ago today. We just checked in at PorkBusters Central only to learn -- much to our non surprise -- that Senator Kennedy is firmly in the "Neutral / Undecided" column. Still, we would have preferred to have been told to our face by the likes of you. Will you confirm that that's where he "stands"?
