American Thinker: Fighting ObamaCare in the Spirit of Ted Kennedy
C. Edmund Wright uses the Left's desire to exploit the "spirit of Kennedy" expertly in the American Thinker. In a manner of minutes after Ted Kennedy's death, Big Media had turn him into a mild, but firm partisan who never made policy arguments personal. It is tough writing about Ted Kennedy because my first instinct is to avoid taking shots at someone who just died, even if I found them detestible. However, the cynical attempt by advocates of nationalized health care to use the Senator's death to resuscitate their fascist (yes, fascist) bill does not allow for the usual deferment. C. Edmund Wright's piece pokes some major holes in their argument.
