    [T]he White House yesterday announced 16 recipients of the 2009 Presidential Medal of Freedom. Two of them, congressman and housing secretary Jack Kemp and San Francisco County supervisor Harvey Milk, will receive the medal posthumously, having respectively died of cancer in May and been assassinated in 1978.

    This is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time.

    Among the still-living recipients:"So Far !"

    Senator Edward M. Kennedy has served in the United States Senate for forty-six years, and has been one of the greatest lawmakers--and leader--of our time.

    From reforming our public schools to strengthening civil rights laws and supporting working Americans, Senator Kennedy has dedicated his career to fighting for equal opportunity, fairness and justice for all Americans.

    He has worked tirelessly to ensure that every American has access to quality and affordable health care, and has succeeded in doing so for countless children, seniors, and Americans with disabilities.

    He has called health care reform the “cause of his life,” and has championed nearly every health care bill enacted by Congress over the course of the last five decades.

    Known as the “Lion of the Senate,” Senator Kennedy is widely respected on both sides of the aisle for his commitment to progress and his ability to legislate.

    "Mary Jo Kopechne will not receive a 2009 Presidential Medal of Freedom."

    So, you get a Medal of Freedom for being a murdered gay or a murderer?

    Barry is pandering to all of his leftwing special interest groups and ideologues.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
