So why are the major networks talking as though he is?
Senator Ted Kennedy has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. It’s a serious, serious, serious health concern and he should be in all of our thoughts and prayers.
However, what’s bothering me is the coverage of this event. All the major anchors and networks are covering this as though he’s dead. They’ve been asking his fellow senators for their thoughts about him, co workers who worked with him about what it was like working with him etc, etc and their tone has been so somber that if you weren’t following closely you would really think he’s past on.
I mean come on people, the man is probably in his hospital room watching all the coverage wtih a confused look on his face and asking his wife Vicki, “Hon, I’m still alive right?”
I really think the tone could be more positive rather than so somber if there is anyone in the Senate who can beat this ‘thing’ it would be Ted Kennedy so reporters and anchors shouldn’t be writing his eulogy just yet.
Now that is a coup!
Ted Kennedy, one of the biggest lions in the Democratic party by passes Hillary Clinton and endorses the guy that Caroline Kennedy, his niece, the daughter of John F Kennedy also has endorsed!
Now, I’ve said before that endorsements really don’t matter and in the grand scheme of things they don’t but when you get ones as big as Ted & Caroline Kennedy the support that these two bring from the establishment base of the Democratic party as well as their money and connections you’ve got to pause and say maybe, just maybe this black guy could pull this thing off..
But we’ll see..we’ll see..
And you know what it’s such a slap in the face to the Clintons even better in my opinion.
