Ted Kennedy Dies


The classy reaction.

Put aside your ideological differences for an appropriate moment and mark this passing with solemnity.

There is a time and place for political analysis and criticism. Not now.

Yes, there will be a nauseating excess of MSM hagiographies and lionizations — and crass calls to pass the health care takeover to memorialize his death.

That’s no excuse to demonstrate the same lack of restraint in the other direction. Not now.

And the not so classy reaction (in the comments) to the classy reaction:
Next she’ll be “reporting” on what type of “cadillac” coffin he has at his funeral and how that is damning to the health care issue somehow.

His body is still warm and she’s already starting this shit.

That bitch is using oxygen that could be being absorbed by people with souls.

Which leads me to say Mary Jo Kopechne couldn't be reached for comment.

But cheer up! Ted Kennedy made us Americans. Who knew? I thought I was an American before then.

Oh, and Rush was right that Dems won't let a good death go to waste without using it for political purposes.

And those awful, uncouth Republicans. Thank goodness liberals were so civilized when Ronald Reagan died.
