Ted Kennedy's Great White Hope

When it comes to hypocrites Ted Kennedy is right up there with the best of them. Sometimes it seems establishment pols like Kennedy put their fingers in the wind to see which way the wind is blowing before they make a move. Except of course when it comes to putting wind generators in areas where they might "spoil" the views of the Kennedy's and their wealthy neighbors. Though Ted Kennedy's political judgement and posturing over the years is always good for a few laughs. It seems to me that Kennedy's endorsement of Obama and his message requires that crusty old Washington politicians like Kennedy be thrown out of D.C. ASAP. Here is the money quote:
"He also rebutted their contention that Obama has been inconsistent in his opposition to the war in Iraq and said Obama represents a new era and a rejection of "old politics." -Washington Post
Rejection of the old politics indeed. Just the kind of politics that geezer pols like Ted Kennedy practice everyday. The Kennedy's had better be careful what they wish for. Because when Obama says change in Washington he may really mean it!
