John Fonda Kerry wants $20 million of your money to build a Shrine to that Drunken Murdering Cowardly Slob Teddy Kennedy and he will probably get it.
"Shameful *****" thats what I say.
WASHINGTON - A large military spending bill moving through Congress contains a little-noticed outlay for Boston that has nothing to do with national defense: $20 million for an educational institute honoring late Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts.
The earmark, tucked into the defense bill at the request of Senator John F. Kerry of Massachusetts, requires US taxpayers to help the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate realize its goal of building a repository for Kennedy’s papers and an accompanying civic learning center on the University of Massachusetts at Boston campus in Dorchester, next to the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum. Watchdog groups rap $20m earmark for Kennedy institute - The Boston Globe

It’s a natural for Kerry to go to Inouye on this,’’ Wheeler said. “If it’s in the defense bill it must be a good idea. And the defense bill is sure to pass. He wanted a fast vehicle to get it enacted.’’
I'll bet he did.
I'm sorry, I'm pretty liberal but this kinda stuff just ticks me off. It's a very bad idea, it's playing fast and loose with the American public and it's playing fast and loose with the American military.
I honestly don't understand the stupidity here. It's like the Dems see that the Republicans have a sling shot and instead of doing the sane thing and clearing the area of slingable stones they're literally handing them the biggest rocks they can find.
This is why we need a federal line item veto, people seem to forget that Newt gave this power to Clinton, and that (and a GOP COngress) is how they balanced the budget. The very first bill they shoudl pass is a line item veto. Obama said in his many (now we all know to be empty) campaign promises to scour every item in a bill for fraud waste and abuse. I say give him a line item veto to root out this and all the rest of the pork.

A monument to a murderer, typical of dems. What a disgrace, I'll bet it goes through.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
As Kerry pointed out, Kennedy had a long tenure on the armed service committee, and represented a point of view shared by those Americans who think that we should not put our troops in harm's way without extremely good cause and should not overspend on the military out of some perserve sense of patriotism.
That said, I think it's wrong that politicians spend so much money honoring themselves -- naming buildings after each other, setting up institutes and libraries in each other's name. I'd be far happier if the Senate voted to honor Kennedy by providing funds for something Kennedy believed in.
