**Written by Doug Powers This flashback could be coming to the campaign ads of many GOP hopefuls, not to mention Obama, fairly soon: ***** Reason.com points this out: One other thing to note is that Romney praises Kennedy for helping make the case that federal support was necessary to fund the state-based coverage expansion.

Brothels, Communists, and Other Things That Will Go Unmentioned at the Ted Kennedy Institute

By Doug Powers  •  March 1, 2011 11:11 AM

**Written by Doug Powers The Edward M. Kennedy Institute will make no mention of these things, but if you ask me they’re worthy of an entire wing: The late Sen. Ted Kennedy arranged to “rent” a brothel for a night while on a visit to Chile and other Latin American countries decades ago, according to […]

Oh, no: Here comes “Open Borders For Teddy”

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 27, 2009 12:09 PM

First, KennedyCare. Next up: ShamnesTeddy. Morton Kondracke is leading the charge: Along with a health care reform bill, it would be a fitting tribute to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) if Congress could act on his other great unfinished cause: immigration reform. For all his liberal Democratic passion, Kennedy understood — as few of […]

The wretched excess begins

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2009 12:02 PM

I’ll let these speak for themselves: Kennedy’s Death Spurs Calls to Pass Health Legislation House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office sent an email to reporters at around 2:30 a.m. today, just hours after his death, calling for the passage of health care overhaul. “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made […]

Sen. Edward Kennedy has died

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2009 01:32 AM

The U.S. Senator from Massachusetts succumbed to brain cancer at the age of 77 tonight. Put aside your ideological differences for an appropriate moment and mark this passing with solemnity. There is a time and place for political analysis and criticism. Not now. Yes, there will be a nauseating excess of MSM hagiographies and lionizations […]

Fun fact of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 11, 2009 02:38 PM

Well, ok. Not really “fun.” Depressing, actually: More than one out of every five dollars of the $125 million Massachusetts is receiving from a federal spending bill is going to help preserve the legacy of the Kennedys. I call it Hyannis Pork. Like this:Like Loading…

Send ’em a white feather

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 05:09 PM

Reader and Vietnam Vet Jack Haley e-mails: The White Feather has been a symbol for cowardice. I suggest that white feathers be sent to the leaders of the Senate and House for the cowardly vote that abandons our soldiers around the world. I was in Vietnam the day that the 101st took “Hamburger Hill” — […]

Six, seven, eight strikes, you’re out

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 23, 2007 12:22 AM

When I was writing Invasion five years ago, I interviewed immigration officials who joked that the rule for border-crossing prosecutions in southern California and Arizona was “thirteen strikes and you’re out.” So this new story from the Associated Press headlined “Border crossings rarely prosecuted” in Texas is no surprise.
