KENNEDY'S PROGRESSIVE VOTING SCORE

No wonder "progressives" get their clocks cleaned, if they give Teddy a near-perfect rating.

I do despair sometimes. Here are millions of nominal progressives having a lachrymose orgy over a guy whose only actual achievement, as far as I can make out, was to kill poor Mary Jo Kopechne.

But he gave good speech, and cast a lot of lip-service, me-too votes, and that's apparently enough to shortlist him for the next round of canonisation by Pope Rat.

Feh.

I wonder what kind of criteria they're using if he has "100%" on education. Wasn't he the champion of NCLB?

The wrong kind, because he was indeed in bed with Bush on NCLB.
