James Taranto: A Degenerate Dynasty

After Ted Kennedy's latest rant, where he called for the immediate withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, days before the citizens of that country risk their lives to vote, it bacoame apparent that not only is Mr. Kennedy a disgrace to the US senate and the country, he is a disgrace to his family. James Taranto has more in the Wall Street Journal's Best of the Web. Read it here. Pay special attention to the excerpt of the 1961 JFK inaugural address, the soaring rhetoric, the optimism, his advocation of the spread of democracy, no matter the price or burden to THIS country. All the elements the modern Democratic pzarty ridiculed President Bush for making in his address.

The degeneration of Ted Kennedy is not just the story of a once proud political family to the fringe of political lunacy, but the story of an entire party that has become so obsessed with retaining its power that it's members regularly resort to anti-American rhetoric.
