The senior embarrassment...I mean Senator from the state of Illinois, Dick Durbin, seems to be concerned about the prospect of Ted Kennedy's legacy being thrown off the bridge by the voters of Taxachusetts. How could this be? Does the Massachusetts electorate have a referendum before them that will bring Mary Jo Kopechne back from the dead? Perhaps the good people of Massachusetts are voting to ban the sale of Teddy's brand of Scotch.
Neither of those scenarios appear to be the case. The cause for Dick's consternation seems to be the possibility that the Kennedy family grasp on the collective throat of the state may be slipping. Dick is disturbed by the possibility that the seat once held by the sea lion of the Senate might fall into Republican hands. Worse still, this might hinder the seizure of Americans' healthcare decisions by politicians and bureacrats appointed by politicians!
Dick has a plan to save Ted's legacy. The Bogus Journey of Dick and Ted to the point at which the statists have a super-majority and a Marxist in the White House can still be salvaged. Dick needs his constituents to contribute to the candidate that promises to carry on Teddy's work. He has sent out a plea on behalf of Martha Coakley, who needs any financial support we can offer if she hopes to continue the tradition of damaging our nation as Teddy did before her.
What do you say, my fellow citizens of Illinois? Can we help Dick out? Can we keep Ted Kennedy's legacy alive, even if it is to the detriment of our children? What could be more important than the legacy of Mary Jo's killer? This is America and he was a Kennedy after all.
Actually, if we want to help Dick out, how about we help Dick out of office in 2014?
