Ack. Would you believe that I hadn't noticed Kennedy making an ass of himself? Or, more accurately, I had seen it without registering it? "Made up in Texas". Wonderful.
I tell you what would be a fantasy ideology. One in which a viable centrist party existed. I know it is against all the laws of political science, partisanship and demogoguery; I know that such beasts are as mythological as the pegasus, the unicorn, or the honest used car dealer; still and all, it is a pretty fantasy; a world in which I could disown both Edward Kennedy and Trent Lott; Rick Santorum and Wesley Clark, Judge Moore and the 9th Circuit.
What a time to be caught defending the Democratic party.
