INVOKING TEDDY TO PASS A POISONOUS HEALTH CARE BILL

As the saying goes: You can put icing on a turd and call it a cupcake, but it's still a turd. Or, you can put wings on the devil and call him an angel....Well, you get the point.

Democrats, it seems, are hell-bent on passing a health care bill this year (mid-term elections are right around the corner) and their latest strategy is to use the Tuesday death of Ted Kennedy to rally the troops aroud 'KennedyCare.' The problem is, a turd is a turd.

This from ABCNews:


Democrats are hoping that the memory of Sen. Ted Kennedy will revive the Democratic Party's flagging push for health care reform.

"You've heard of 'win one for the Gipper'? There is going to be an atmosphere of 'win one for Teddy,'" Ralph G. Neas, the CEO of the liberal National Coalition on Health Care, told ABC News.

Democrats are hoping that Kennedy's influence in death may be even stronger than it was when he was alive as they push for President Obama's top domestic priority. Democratic officials hope that invoking Kennedy's passion for the issue will counter slippage in support for heatlh care reform.

"Ted Kennedy's dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a statement.

Pelosi's sentiment was echoed by former vice president Al Gore who served with Kennedy in the Senate.
