What If He Were A Republican?

Via Drudge:

BOSTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor Tuesday in what could be the grim final chapter in a life marked by exhilarating triumph and shattering tragedy. Some experts gave the liberal lion less than a year to live.

All sorts of unseemly thoughts come to mind, but we'll try to be civil here. We won't even bother to speculate on what Mary Jo Kopechne's family has to say (albeit privately) on the matter.

The one thought that does present itself is what would be said in the dominant media were the patient to be a prominent Republican. Worse yet, what would one find in the likes of DemocraticUnderground or MoveOn.org if it were a conservative Republican with the same malady?

Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism.

Having watched a dear sister fight a protracted, losing battle with the disease, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy...And Ol' Keg's done his share to endeavor to earn that spot.
The MSM was wise to keep its mouth shut about Reagan's lingering struggle against Alzheimer's, beyond initial reports. Their faux tears and hypocritical mourning at his passing didn't fool anyone who watched the networks during his Presidency.
