Ted Kennedy Dies

Our night owl Brent Baker stayed up into the middle of the night watching the early news of Ted Kennedy's death. His first report is that Brian Williams proclaimed in a parting shot at 3:16 AM that Kennedy was the "last unabashed liberal" in the Senate. Bernie Sanders might need to e-mail.

Expect many, many kind words about the "royal family" and so on to come. It's clear that Kennedy was a historic figure in the Senate and an inspirational leader for American liberalism. We'll be watching for statements (like the NBC anchor's) that don't ring true.
