David Brooks exhibited this hallucinatory memory
of Ted Kennedy:
I would just say he could exercise great anger when he disapproved, but it was not resentment and so it never got quite as personal, and for conservatives who are now in the wilderness, that is a model for them, to find the best in your tradition and to follow it the way he followed liberalism during the Reagan years.
C. Edmund Wright calls his bid, by addressing ObamaCare in the manner that Kennedy addressed Robert Bork's nomination to the Supreme Court. Kennedy's original speech is interspersed in Wright's parody.
