Three cheers for Ted Kennedy - and get a load of the R's response...
Kennedy: "The U.S. military presence has become part of the problem, not a part of the solution. We need a serious course correction, and we need it now."

An R's response: ""What he's suggesting is either impractical or already being done."

Here's a link:

3. translation: they're already doing everything practical?
"What he's suggesting is either impractical or already being done."

That's the sort of statement that makes my brain hurt.

5. Does that mean that something impractical has already been done?

That's kind of like a defendant in a murder case saying, "I didn't kill the victim, and I'm sorry if I did killer.."

6. Ted remains one of the few Dem senators one can be proud of.
His nephew RFK Jr said recently that 95% of Republicans were corrupt, and 75% of Democrats. One might quibble with the numbers (I'd put it at 99% R's and 85% D's, myself) but no matter how you cut it, Ted is a member of that select group still deserving of respect.

7. But...but...he's a MASSACHUSETTS LIBERAL!!!
...which, apparently, in some circles, translates to Minion of Satan. Why do y'all hate Amurika?!

I saw Teddy speak at the Convention. He's grown into a phenomenally effective statesman.

That's a new level of doublespeak--and a good way to cover all your bases.

10. Yet another reason to not have term limits...
Between Byrd, Kennedy, and Boxer, they've only improved with age.
