The astonishingly international
blog The Irish Savant
has a report from Ireland
so ludicrous that is funny.
This is nothing funny about the well-balanced post on Ted Kennedy just posted by The Western Right
: Ted Kennedyâ€™s Terrible Legacy
In the Reuters story I noted today
, President Obama said of Kennedy:
"He was a product of an age when the joy and nobility of politics prevented differences of party and philosophy from becoming barriers to cooperation and mutual respect, a time when adversaries still saw each other as patriots,"
This is utter rubbish. If the Russian archives are ever fully opened, we will find
that many prominent Democrats of the time, besides Kennedy
, reached out to the enemy at the height of the Cold War
