The Liberal LionToday I did something that I am sure a few of you didn't think you would see-I paid tribute to Ted Kennedy:
Some may wonder why a conservative Republican would pay tribute to a man who he frequently made the butt of his political frustration, but those regular readers, especially those of you who are college age or younger, have to understand that there has been a Senator Ted Kennedy as long as I have been following public affairs. Kennedy has been a fixture of public life since his brother was elected President in 1960, and was arguably involved in Democratic machine politics for far longer than that.
At least we can say of Ted Kennedy that he legislated for what he claimed to believe in. This is more than can be said of some so-called conservative leaders.
