Kennedy's Portuguese water dogs will be missed on Hill"
Don't you feel sorry for Congress, and the people who work there. They are going to have to struggle along without Ted Kennedy's "Portuguese water dogs". This is on top of their struggles to force a Federal health care program on a public that recognizes the insanity of such a program (while our "elites", including Republican elites, do not recognize they have gone insane). The people recognize tow things: (1) Any kind of major heath care overhaul makes no sense at all in the face of a looming 9 TRILLION dollar national debt (2) It will NOT be an advance in health care to put health care decisions into the hands of a few Federal bureaucrats, even if everyone agrees insurance companies are not usually all that great--there at least being more than one insurance company, and the insurance companies at least being subject to private lawsuits and the regulations of 50 separate states, instead of having the almost total power "health care overhaul" proponents want to give to a few Federal bureaucrats.
"Skip,you made that headline up." That is the comment I am sure I would get from one of you brain dead people out there. You give me too much credit. That is not only a current headline on Yahoo News, but it represents the considered judgment of the people at Yahoo News (poor souls) as to one of the 7 or so most important "news" stories of this morning (being one of the 7 or so headlines featured on the Yahoo "Welcome" page that AT&T Uverse provides to me to make sure I keep up with leftist/mainstream media insanity in this country). I assure you I am not nearly talented enough to make up a headline like this, even though I flatter myself that I know more about the deficiencies of the mains tram media than almost anyone else alive.
Corrupt and useless: That is what the above quoted headline again reveals about a mainstream media with a virtual fetish about leftist leaders, the Kennedys, and entertainment figures like Michael Jackson.
By the way. Do you realize how much a "man of the people" Ted Kennedy had to be to keep PORTUGUESE WATER DOGS. Were collies, poodles, German shepherds--even Dobermans and put bulls--too pedestrian for him? What about a mongrel? I have a mongrel German shepherd mix. Am I saying I am more American than Ted Kennedy? Well, if the shoe (or glove or reference to a car crashing off of a bridge and a girl left to die while the driver consults his lawyers/aides) fits, wear it.
