Hey Ted: Ration This...

Headline today: Ted Kennedy suggests "rationing" health care. You mean like he "rationed care" for Mary Jo Kopechne? That was forty years ago this week.

If rationing care to save money is such a great idea--with the elderly obviously being less "worthy" of special care because of shorter life expectancy, greater expense, etc; then perhaps--as an example to us all--any "rationing" of care should start with Mr. Kennedy himself, considering the advanced stage of his cancer and the unlikelihood of his living much longer. After all, this is how they do it in the other Socialist Utopias which he, Obama and Rahm Emanuel's brother seem to feel we must so "urgently" emulate with all possible speed.

Personally, I preferred National Socialism in its original German (or Italian, take your pick...).
