Ted, again

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 07, 2005

Katrina has landed the Dems with the most windfall political capital they've enjoyed since the day Monica Lewinsky claimed to have written the "talking points." Comfortable Catholic communicant Ted Kennedy is spending his bit in the sacred cause of abortion, by straining to transfer some of the post-catastrophe odium onto Supreme Court nominee John Roberts:

"What the American people have seen is this incredible disparity in which those people who had cars and money got out and those people who were impoverished died," Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) said in an interview . The question for Roberts, he said, is whether he stands for "a fairer, more just nation" or for "narrow, stingy interpretations of the law to frustrate progress."

This incredible disparity. Stingy interpretations of the law.

Beloved of feminists as a crusader for women's rights, Senator Kennedy (pictured below minimizing disparities on his yacht) now presents himself as a champion of the impoverished -- against the threat posed by constitutional originalist John Roberts. Great days to be a Democrat!

    Master and Commander.

    You'd think Teddy would avoid the topic of "people with cars and money" "getting out" of a water-related tragedy in which others died.
