One of Kennedy’s good buddies, former editor of Newsweek and New York Times Magazine Ed Klein, tells the Diane Rehm Show that Chappaquiddick jokes were high up on the list.

So ... here's how to explain the public option so even a [caveman] can understand it:
Suppose you own a grocery store and the government opens a grocery store right beside yours. Since all their expenses are paid by the taxpayers, they don't have to make any money in their store, so they start selling a gallon of milk for a dollar while you sell your milk for $3.49. They sell a loaf of bread for 50 cents while you sell one for $1.89. They do the same with everything they sell. Which store do you think everybody in town will go to? How long do you think you will be able to stay in business?
There you have it. Nothing more need be said. The great communicators through the ages have been those who can simply explain the important things of life, from Ronald Reagan and his homilies to Jesus and his parables. Perhaps the media and the political parties would be smart to start culling the fertile field of teachers for their next spokespersons.
"The reason I am here is because ... even though the facade has changed in Washington DC, the policies are still the same..."
Well, ya can't blame Bush on this one. As a matter of fact, Ms. Sheehan is stark reminder of how much things haven't changed, how there is no hope and how Obama and the left are a bunch of lying hypocritical frauds!
