Edward Kennedy Should Be Our Senate Majority Leader

With the wonderful news that Senator Kennedy’s cancer is in full remission and with the disgraceful spewing of Republican talking points I think it is time Harry Reid stepped down from Majority Leader (or forced down) and allow our Liberal Lion, my Senator one last roar.

As Majority Leader of the United States Senate.

This is the man who needs to be in the Senate directing the Health Care reform we all need.

This a man not afraid to stand up to Republicans UNLIKE our cowardly lion Senator Reid.

This is a man who was unafraid to stand up to the Clinton “inevitable” machine and endorse what seemed to be a long shot in Barack Obama.

Lets reward that courage and demand Harry Reid step down for his spineless spewing of Republican talking points (over and over again) and it give the man who is a true Champion of the Progressive movement one last moment of glory as we remake America.

Edward M. Kennedy

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?

  1. For (hopefully) Majority Leader Kennedy

    I actually passed up the chance to vote Anybody but Reid.

  2. It has a poor prognosis, especially in adults. He has no chance of beating it. Sorry. Often when brain tumours do progress, which his will, they can lead to impaired judgement, mood changes, and other forms of impairment. I hope he is not subject to that but having a brain tumour is not just a health issue.

    He is a fighter but better to chose somebody who can dig in for the marathon and as much as Reid irritates the living hell out of most sane thinking people the Dems aren’t asking us. They should be…..

  3. on his earlier announcement that Senator Kennedy’s cancer is in remission. Apparently it is not, and the Senator is undergoing alternative therapies. Reid said he would leave the medical stuff to the doctors, but that’s NOT what he said earlier today.

    Very curious.

    I wish Senator Kennedy all the best and hope he will participate in the Senate for a long time to come.

    and should be replaced ASAP.

    I have no idea how that would come about.  

    But it needs to happen, desperately.

    mind-boggling capitulations serve to prove is that both parties ultimately are controlled by the money interests that rule our eco-political system and both parties are no threat to that apple-cart!

    But alas, we need some younger, more energetic talent in lead roles, for which both Reid and Pelosi are also dramatically unsuited. Both need to be effectively primaried, by very good new candidates who can win their generals. Their positions need to be re-assigned immediately, let the Houses have open elections!
