But I don't, and I won't.
Look, I'm not happy he's dead - so don't get that idea. I'm sorry for his family's loss, and I hope they will find Peace with it. I'm sorry when anyone dies; but as a Catholic (like, ahem, the late Senator) I know that death is an inevitable part of life and that it is a Beginning, rather than an End.
But the guy hasn't even been dead 24-hours yet and the cries of "SAINT TEDDY!!!!" are already starting to make me sick.

I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful.
And it's on video, too! Sheesh, where do I apply?

Ticker-Guy sums it up with one appropriate word: Awful.
So how's that "Green Shoots" based recovery working out for 'ya?

And all the folks at CNBC buying into the "Green Shoots" jive with even more vigor.
Yeah, good times, those. Good... Times...
The number of newly laid-off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits rose unexpectedly last week and retail sales disappointed in July. The latest government reports reinforced concerns about how quickly consumers will be able to contribute to a broad economic recovery.

Team Obama can spend August complaining about right-wing distortion of their healthcare agenda. Or, they can figure out how to tell their truth: Revamping healthcare is not an evil socialist plot to take away American rights. It’s a patriotic movement to guarantee them.
Socialism - it's the new Patriotism.
Oh, and their truth? That's precious, Joan. Simply precious.

And I'm pretty darn sure everyone who knows me personally would agree.
Yet after reading stuff like this, in the context of this and this, I find myself with visions of sharpening pitchforks, cleaning shotguns and mixing Molotov cocktails constantly dancing through my head lately. And I'm finding that my long-stored Army field manuals are becoming a pretty good read - for the first time, in many cases.
And if that's the case, I can only wonder what's going through the minds of my fellow morons who may be a bit less - ahem - subtle in their preferred approach to solving political problems.
Methinks none of this will end well. At all.

Ah, the spontaneity of it all. Chicago deep-dish style, of course.
So just to sum up, Obama enlists the aid of a small group of liberal bloggers in the health care fight, and then those same bloggers write posts echoing White House and DNC talking points -- and in the very process of doing that, accuse their political opponents of astroturfing!
It would be hilarious if we weren't talking about the Cubanization of our health care system.

I guess the days of “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” are officially over now that The Won as won.
Hypocrisy - thy name is Democrat.

The recession is starving the government of tax revenue, just as the president and Congress are piling a major expansion of health care and other programs on the nation's plate and struggling to find money to pay the tab.
The numbers could hardly be more stark: Tax receipts are on pace to drop 18 percent this year, the biggest single-year decline since the Great Depression, while the federal deficit balloons to a record $1.8 trillion.
Anyone think the deficit will be only $1.8T? And do you really think the ChiComs will continue our credit-binge if the deficit breaks, say, the $2T mark?
Because I sure as shit don't.
