Rush May Be an Asshole, But...

I can't quite get so outraged about this:

On his radio show Friday, Rush Limbaugh suggested that Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) would be dead by the time health care reform legislation passes. "Before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy memorial health care bill," the talk show host says.
I didn't mean it in the mean-spirited sense that he did, but... that exact thought has occurred to me more than once. In fact, it almost certainly was going to happen exactly that way- health care passing right after Ted's death the way the Civil Rights Act passed right after JFK's. But now that a stink has been raised over this, it probably won't.
