Defender of the faith, friend of the poor
The US Senate is debating a proposal to provide vouchers that would allow parents in the District of Columbia to send their children to parochial shools.
A spokesman for Sen. Ted Kennedy vows that the veteran lawmaker and his liberal allies "will use all the tools available to them to try to defeat this legislation on the Senate floor."
Kennedy will fight tooth and nail to ensure that needy children don't go to Catholic schools.
Kennedy will try every trick in the parliamentary book to make sure that poor families don't have the same educational choices as millionaires like himself.
And when it's over, Kennedy will return to the campaign trail, telling people that he is a loyal Catholic and a champion of the underprivileged.
