Ted Kennedy Is Dead
Readers interested to see whether I will be able to spit the kind of acid I did recently when Robert Novak's end-of-unlife was announced will probably be disappointed to find that the only truly damning thing I can bring myself to say about Ted Kennedy at this time is that he was a long-time, openly unrepentant U.S. Senator.
I trust others on the web and elsewhere will deliver the shellacking of Ted Kennedy's memory that you might have been hoping to see here. I don't have it in me. He died without achieving his life's dedication, the reformation of America's health insurance system, and we are all the poorer for it.
Okay, Stephen Hemsley, the CEO of UnitedHealth Group, isn't poorer for it, but we're not counting him.
