With Ted Kennedy's Death, The Health-Care Battle is Over! And the ZOT is On!
Adam Kirur ^ | 08/26/09 | Adamnuke

Posted on 08/26/2009 4:33:26 AM PDT by Adamnuke

And the Democrats have won. President Obama will use the emotional capital of the Senator's passing to push through--via reconciliation--legislation that SHALL include the public option that the Pelosi wing of the party wants. Any Republicans who dare to speak against this will be portrayed as heartless demagogues, spitting on the grave of a liberal legend.

They can try, but Kennedy was a pretty scummy character, not well liked outside of Taxachussets and the beltway.

Brilliant observation, except that, outside of Massachusetts, Kennedy is deeply reviled and his passing will be celebrated. Any attempts to sympathy-ram this piece-of-shite legislation through congress will cause heads to roll....literally

Ted, hope you packed your Bermuda shorts

Color me heartless, and incidentally already on the record as predicting the timely demise of the despicable slimeball from taxachusetts to coincide with Obamas needing something to take the heat off his agenda. Word to liberals, you can rant and whine all you want, it won't play with America any more. You'll ram through this turd of a bill against the American people. Name it after the “swimmer” if you want. And you'll pay the consequences in 2010.

1) You signed up yesterday

2) As of now, this is your only post

3) There is no working link to any article or ‘blog’

So, I vote for a magnificently impressive zotting.

The emotional capitol from the passing of Teddy the Hutt is $.03. This will do nothing to abate the anger of the voters.

Had he been in Canada he would have dies 2 years ago. It’s only due to our medicine that Kennedy was allowed to spend last week on a boat and this week to meet with his brother Obama.

I disagree. People are tired of hearing platitudes, sound bites, and emotional appeals. They want to know, from a government they don’t trust, specifically how this 1300-page monstrous legislation is going to affect their own health care. Others, like us, see it as a freedom and tax-robbing, fascist federal assault on the individual that it is.

Conjuring the memory of Ted Kennedy (who is not well-liked outside of MA anyway), just ain’t going to cut it. In fact, it may be another Wellstone moment.

I think that Kennedy’s demise is exceptionally well-timed, but for the Republicans. Due to the Massachusetts law Kennedy championed when Kerry ran for president in 2004, and belatedly tried to get repealed in recent weeks, his replacement in the Senate must be selected by the voters in a special election, and no earlier than 135 days after his death.

The Democrats and their allied independents (Lieberman and Sanders) have only 59 votes now. The filibuster is back.

So will the MA voters be able to conjure up some worthless piece of crap that could possibly suck more than "The Lyin' of the Senate"?

“The Democrats and their allied independents (Lieberman and Sanders) have only 59 votes now. The filibuster is back.”

The filibuster is back if we can get our cowardly Senators to act. There are so many RINOS, I have to wonder. My Republican Senator Dick Lugar is looking worse than my Democrat Senator Evan Bayh.

Bingo! When the Dims try to use Kennedy's passing as a "reason" to pass this health control boondoggle this point should be driven home as often as possible. Canada is just beginning to shift their system back to one that relies on private insurance because they have realized their so-called "public option" is bankrupting them and their citizens are not getting the care they need. I can't think of a better example to hang around Obamalamadingdong's neck.....

“Take the blue pill.”

Which begs the question, why didn’t Teddy just take the pill? What a waste of money! A glioblastoma brain tumor is a very costly cancer which is basically a death sentence. 60%, of all patients die within the first year of diagnosis, the remaining dying in the second and third year. Only 2% survive beyond five years.

When you look in the dictionary under: “worthless piece of crap that could possibly suck more than “The Lyin’ of the Senate”...you’ll find that picture.

Palliative care was definitely a waste of precious healthcare dollars. His QALY index certainly didn’t justify it.

Unless you live in Red Massachusetts or are an active member of Naral. Mr. Kennedy nor his death carry much capital.

As a Kennedy, he was a failure. He road the family coat tails but was never able to ride his name to anything other than political victory in his own state.

The news is now discussing Mary Jo and his loss to Carter. I dare the Dems to push Ted Kennedy's name nationally, they will get an even bigger backlash.

I hope you don't get zotted, you bring up a dem fallacy that needs to be discussed and debunked.

Also Mitt Romney should run for Teddy’s seat. I bet he could captialize on voter’s discontent and win. Fauxbama’s super majority will be gone.

The corrupt MA legislature will double-time a bill to allow the current governor to select a temporary replacement. It’s already in the works.
