…and it took less than 24 hours for Nancy Pelosi to try to demagogue his death into votes:

“Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration.

Watch for democrats to use his death to try to push “healthcare”. Update: Yup more of it. Prediction: That is going to fall VERY flat.

Slightly breaking news: I talked to a member of the State Legislature this week, he said that due to the heat over the flip flop concerning his seat, the legislature would likely delay changing the rules of succession slightly but that Ted would get what he wants. Now that he has actually died there is no question that they will pass this through as his last political request.

I think that Joe Kennedy or another one of the clan will be put in at that time, I can’t see them risking an election as the environment has never been better for a Republican.

I offer my condolences to his family. I won’t hit him today, but Pat Whittome of Ulster has a long memory (and he’s not talking about what you think).

And one thing, I hope Jeff Jacoby never asks me to resign. I don’t like the results.
