MY THOUGHTS ON THE PASSING OF TED KENNEDY
For my part, I can neither grieve the passing nor honor TK. Perhaps my heart has grown bitter over the many disappointments it experienced these past few years in viewing the field of politics.
1) I was disappointed and embittered when Ted Kennedy chose to support Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States.
2) I was disappointed and embittered when Ted Kennedy went along with the Bush Boy, his many lies, and unending paranoia in supporting the twisted policies of a (supposedly) fellow recovering alcoholic.
3) I was and still am disappointed that Ted Kennedy chose to support the side of “anAmerican Way to do Health Care Reform” as Barack Obama has often put it (all of which means support for the insurance companies) over rendering any kind of true support for the true health care reform we need in this country, which, as Dennis Kucinich has said, “the only true health care reform is universal health care for all.”
Can I join in, in the cacophonous chorus of what a great man and politician TED KENNEDY was? Well. Sorry. To tell the truth. I can’t.
