Ailing Senator Robert Byrd, one of only two to have served longer than Kennedy, suggests in an emotional statement renaming the pending health care legislation for the late Massachusetts Senator:

Does anybody else see any symbolism in the Democrats renaming their Health Care plan after a guy who just died?

Now that's symbolism I can get my head around... just like Sisyphus leaving his boulder as a legacy to the American people.

I think it is even more ironic that under Obamacare, Kennedy would likely NOT have been able to receive the cancer surgery and treatment that he received -- he would have been too old and the cost/benefit ratio too high.

Bill Long.. not quite accurate. Kennedy would have received the care because he was politically connected. It's the rest of us that would be affected under ObamaGovernmentCare(TM).

Hey, remember that John Edwards tried to use Christopher Reeve during the '04 election re: embryonic stem cell research. It's only one small step from that to this sort of pandering.

Maybe it is good symbolism. Maybe Obamacare is being re-named because it is dead too.

Here in Oklahoma City, our major airports are named after Will Rogers (commercial traffic) and Wiley Post (private aircraft/FAA-designated relief airport) -- both of whom died together in a tragic 1935 airplane crash. That's something to think about the next time you fly into, or out of, OKC.

Now I see the reason for so many articles here regarding the Kennedy memorial, etc.

You guys haven't used up all the hilarious "jokes" you've been saving up ever since you heard the man was terminal. Classy.
