And so it begins.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office sent an email to reporters at around 2:30 a.m. today, just hours after his death, calling for the passage of health care overhaul. “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration,” the statement read.
Democrats are already tap-dancing on his grave, exploiting his death as an opportunity to pimp their healthcare legislation. It’s about as surprising as Michael Moore ordering dessert. Prepare yourself, because you’re about to experience the joys of combining an adoring media who gave us a weeklong pukefest of coverage for a moonwalking pedophile with the audacity of shameless liberal politics that turned Paul Wellstone’s memorial into Lollapalooza.
And Senator Byrd is calling for the healthcare legislation to be named for Kennedy…
In his honor and as a tribute to his commitment to his ideals, let us stop the shouting and name calling and have a civilized debate on health care reform which I hope, when legislation has been signed into law, will bear his name for his commitment to insuring the health of every American.
As Bob says, “So the Dems want to change the current bill to the Ted Kennedy Memorial Bill. Does that mean they are going to do what he did with Mary Jo Kopechne… Do nothing and watch it die??”
Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
