Why I won't mourn

So Massachusetts Senator Edward M Kennedy passed-away last night at the age of 77, losing his long battle with brain cancer, and I gather that the polite thing to feel is grief and the polite thing to do is to mourn.

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.

Here's an entry for "Easiest Job EVAH!"

How about, writing the ad campaigns for the 2010 Republican challenger to US Representative Eric Massa (Commie-NY).

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?

Popcorn time

Yum - I just love the smell of blue-on-blue violence in the morning.

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?

Riiiiiiiight.

The question that is begged

I posed this first in response to Loren's great TMR piece on Euthanasia as a means of Healthcare Cost Reduction - but I believe the question is begged to the point that I ought repeat herein...

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!

An idea so stupid...

... it could only have come from a Congressional Democrat.

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.

HopenChange: Here comes the Gas Tax increase.

Today, we get a 2-fer.  First, today's dose of HopenChange.  Driving less?  More efficient car?  Tough shit - The Beast must be fed.

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.

The country is in the very best of hands.

Yep, it's sure great to have The AdultsTM back in charge, eh?

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.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Benedict Arlen Specter is learning first hand just how Democrats treat "moderates".

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.

The "green" in "Green Energy"

It's, ahem, money - of course.

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.

Amateur Hour.

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT): Yeah, I'm the one who jammed that AIG bonus loophole into Spendulus.

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.

Botox Air

As Glenn said: The country’s in the very best of hands.

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.

Uh, shouldn't we at least start spending the first $1,000,000,000,000 before asking for more?

I must admit that I'm with Allahpundit.  I mean, if Spendulus - you remember, that $800B "emergency" pile of Grade-A Pork we had to have NOW! NOW! NOW!! OR WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!, or something - was supposed to "save or create 3.5-million jobs", or something, should we not, you know, wait to see if it actually works as advertised before loading-up on another big pile of our kids' future earnings?

Or is the Democrat mantra-of-the-day...

Nothing says confidence like an endless string of multibillion-dollar emergency bailouts.
