The record Mr. Kennedy leaves after 46 years can only be envied by his peers as they join the nation in mourning his passing after a 15-month fight against brain cancer — a record firmly anchored in Mr. Kennedy’s insistence that politics be grasped and administered through the prism of human needs.The prism of "human needs."
And what was the last signature issue that Ted Kennedy campaigned hard to get passed and signed into law before he left the Senate?
A shockingly brutal tax on the poor to pay for the health care of children of middle class parents.
Human needs? Gimme a break.
Look with me through the prism of liberal needs and it all makes perfect sense.
