There's a metaphor in here somewhere

Remember Rep. Vito Fossella?  He's the Republican Congressman form Staten Island who declined to seek re-election in 2008...after it was discovered that the woman who bailed him out after he got arrested for drunk driving was also his mistress.  A mistress with whom he had fathered a child. 

Anyway, the GOP found someone to run for his seat.  There's only one problem.  He's dead:

Speaking Friday at Frank Powers' funeral, Fossella said his potential successor had given him words of encouragement, telling him, "Everything will be OK."

The 67-year-old Powers died June 22, three weeks after the Republican Party endorsed him for Fossella's seat.
Karol needs to do us all a favor and move to Staten Island and run.
