The Jade Monkey

I didn't have a superiority complex until inferior people gave me one.

We didn't really lose, we just came up a few (million) votes short

Tedward Kennedy in denial is funny stuff.

From Hugh:

Teddy K. at the National Press Club today: "We as Democrats may be in the minority in Congress, but we speak for the majority of Americans."

Elections are irrelevant when you are anointed. Perhaps this explains Teddy's contempt for the Iraqi election process.

Heh. And from CQ:

"We cannot move our party or our nation forward under pale colors and timid voices," said Kennedy, who has served 42 years in the Senate. "We cannot become Republican clones. If we do, we will lose again, and deserve to lose."

With his protegé John Kerry taking the opposite tack on abortion, Kennedy insisted that the path to winning elections lies not in regrouping towards the center but in taking traditional Democratic policy positions to their logical extremes.

No comment on John Kerry's tacking on abortion (although"By the Beautiful Blue Danube" is playing in my mind). But they didn't deserve to lose this time, I guess is the implicit conclusion. And, the return of the Dean Meme: "We can't be Bush-lite," despite the fact that being Bush-lite is the one conceivable way they might have won. But like the media bias thing, I have no intention of letting them know they're about to drive off the cliff. I'd rather watch.

And the best part of the yahoo article Ed links to is this gem:

Kennedy also mangled the name of the Democrats' new star, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, calling him "Osama bin ... Osama ... Obama."

At least we know he and Patty Murray will get along.
