I only hope he hasn't already chiseled "U.S. Senate 2009-2011" on his tombstone.

Must be some weird state law designed to kick in if 2 or 4 years was left in the term. I can't imagine any state legislature intending to pass a law that required an election for a seat that expired in 8 weeks. Has to be an accident.
