UPDATE: And so the next great cause is presented with Ted Kennedy’s name on it. Gird your loans, fellow citizens.
Before I begin, I just want to reiterate- Michal Jackson is still dead.
I say that, because last night Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) died from his year-long battle with a brain tumor. I completely disagree with any of his policies, but my heart truly does go out to his family as they mourn his loss. That said, I am girding my loins against the inevitable flood of media coverage that will occur in the coming days. And, knowing our unbiased media, those days will become a month. There will be TV specials highlighting his checkered life and in the long run I imagine there will be a date set as a national or state holiday.
Make no mistake. Through all of this excessive media adulation, Michael Jackson will still be dead. His fans will still have something to mourn.
Now I said last night (to my Twitter followers) that I was going to give the left their mourning period without badmouthing Ted Kennedy. I really don’t know the guy personally, so my criticisms would be leveled at his policies, not him or his family. There are those out there who still call him a murderer for an accident many years ago that he was involved in, but other than mentioning here I won’t talk any further.
However, one of the worst presidents in American history, Jimmy Carter, came out and said today that he hopes Ted Kennedy’s death will motivate the liberals to get the currently proposed health care bill (HR 3200) passed. I am sorry. With comments like those, I state now that the grace period is over. This monstrosity of legislation does not deserve the light of day and I will work more actively than ever to see that it fails.
It is a shame, too, that Mr. Peanut had to use the death of a United States Senator to try and push a Marxist agenda. Shame on you, douche bag. Why don’t you go to Jacksonville, FL and fix some of those dilapidated and condemned ‘low income’ housing you and your elitist Hollywood bunglers built and leave the running of the country to the big dogs. You had your change. You screwed it up. Now go away.
