From an Althouse commenter, officially the dumbest thing that can or will be said about Ted Kennedy’s death:

And another thing – would he have lived to 77 had he been forced to use Obama(doesn’t)Care? No way – he was an old fart with a terminal illness. Take a pill, go home and die. Not that that’s a bad thing, in his case.

I’ll believe that socialized medicine is a good thing when billionaire senators are required to use it.

Everyone over age 65 is enrolled in the socialized health insurance program called Medicare. The countries with the highest cancer survival rates all have some form of socialized health insurance or care for the elderly. Ergo, this may be the dumbest fucking thing that’s ever been said.

Well done, sir. It is a new land-speed record.
