I got kicked around by people on NU for making a "liberalism is a mental disease" joke at Teddy's expense. Wont be returning there anytime soon.
I don't wish cancer on anyone. I am truly sorry for Ted and his family, but that doesn't change the way I feel about Ted Kennedy. The way I feel about a pefson who is alive and in good health is the same way I'll feel about that person once they die or become ill. I'll pray for them and their family, but that's as far as it'll go.
I see this all the time on a local level. A person will die in a tragic accident, and all of a sudden everyone was their friend. If I don't like you when you're alive, I'm not gonna pretend to like you when you die. Ron Paul, that is not being a hypocrit.
Teddie's fate at the pearly gates is one I am glad I don't have to defend. I hope he is spending this time well and wisely, in prayer.
Has he stayed in power because he craves power? Or is he truly a person deeply committed to serving the public? Or a bit of both. I have no idea. I do think his family believes they all ***t ice cream. There was a Kennedy entitlement back there that was untouchable. The Kennedy "curse" was just natural law catching up with folks who thought they would never die. But they die just like the rest of us do. And they will each have to answer for their lives, just as (I personally believe) we all will have to.
I detest Teddy Kennedy as a politician and, based on everything that I've read about him personally, as a man, but I don't want to descend to the level of the DUmp by being unable to feel compassion for a political adversary when he is laid low. I won't be mourning his passing, but I'm not going to dance on his grave, either. His next few months will be extremely ugly for him and his family. Let's demonstrate the decency that the DUmmies are incapable of and at least wish them the best in a bad situation.
