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?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent half of Wednesday finalizing a deal with the Blue Dogs — and the other half quelling a brewing rebellion among progressives who think conservatives have hijacked health care reform.
And I wish you JOY! in your attempts at cat-herding, Speaker McBotox.
Two months ago, most of the 80-plus members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus signed a pledge that they would oppose any health care bill that didn’t contain a bona fide public option that would compete with private insurers.
In other words, a substantial plurality of the party that runs Washington these days won't sign-on to any "reform" that doesn't contain the private-health-insurance-killing "public" option.
But this isn't about the government taking-over healthcare, right Obambi?

Let's propose a hypothetical, assuming that the House and Senate are unsuccessful in their attempts to exempt themselves from this craptacular screw-job...
Under ObamaCare, what do you think are the odds that Teddy Kennedy would actually, legally and above board qualify for the advanced cancer treatments he's getting today?
I'd lay those odds at "slim to none, and slim just left town".
More likely, the representative from ObamaCare, LLC would simply tell him to take a pill.
Pretty much all you need to know about how this pretty much makes everyone miserable except the liberals who demand that everyone be equally miserable.Ah, it would appear that someone beat me to the begging!

Ladies and Gentlemen - Barney "Real Man of Genius" Frank!
Back when the housing mania was taking off, Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank famously said he wanted Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to "roll the dice" in the name of affordable housing. That didn't turn out so well, but Mr. Frank has since only accumulated more power. And now he is returning to the scene of the calamity -- with your money. He and New York Representative Anthony Weiner have sent a letter to the heads of Fannie and Freddie exhorting them to lower lending standards for condo buyers.
Yeah, what could possibly go wrong.

The Obama administration is warning lawmakers that the trust fund that pays for highway construction will go broke in August unless Congress approves an infusion of as much as $7 billion.
Oh, of course. I mean, Heaven Forbid! that we actually, you know, stop spending money we don't have.
Like I said, The Beast must be fed.

Can I state the obvious that if Pelosi were a Republican caught in this mess she would have been forced-out weeks ago and would already be an asterisk in history. But, as we all know, the rules just don't seem to apply to Democrats. Do they.
My, my - but this popcorn sure is tasty.

Arlen Specter's switch to the Democratic Party has cost him his seniority on Senate committees. The Senate passed a resolution Tuesday night that made him the most junior Democrat on the committees on which he serves.
Hey Arlen, how's Harry Reid's ass tasting this morning, eh?
Ah, the sweet, sweet schadenfreude.

In exchange for votes to pass a controversial global warming package, Democratic leaders are offering some lawmakers generous emission “allowances” to protect their districts from the economic pain of pollution restrictions.
People like Henry "Pig-Face" Waxman picking the winners and losers in the economy. What could possibly go wrong?
Read the whole thing. It's a laugh-riot - until you start to break-down and cry, that is.

But the White House made me do it.
So, all the wailing and rending of garments over Bonus-gate... and they, the Democrats, the Agents of Hopenchange, are responsible for it.
There is no way the Republic survives 4-years of this crap.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has gone from frequent flier to jet-aircraft connoisseur, with aides berating military officials to get the best planes, e-mails revealed yesterday.
Pelosi, who clashed with the military to get nonstop service when she flies home to California with police protection on government planes, revealed a particular fondness for Gulfstream’s sleek G-5 - a plane glamorized in Hollywood films and rap videos.
Culture of Corruption.

Or is the Democrat mantra-of-the-day...
Nothing says confidence like an endless string of multibillion-dollar emergency bailouts.
