Let's Party Like Teddy Kennedy Because He's Dead!

As Harry Reid continues his tour of self-destruction, he really shot himself in the foot today.The Majority Leader of the United States Senate is in a celebratory mood because Ted Kennedy died.Really.In an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal, he’s asked out Ted Kennedy’s death will affect the healthcare debate. His response:

I think it’s going to help us. He hasn’t been around for some time. We’re going to have a new chairman of that committee, it’ll be, I don’t know for sure, but I think Sen. (Chris) Dodd, (D-Conn.). He has a right to take it. Either him or (U.S. Sen. Tom) Harkin, (D-Iowa), whichever one wants it can have it. I think he (Kennedy) will be a help. He’s an inspiration for us. That was the issue of his life and he didn’t get it done.
