You want to see the real difference between a Democrat and a Republican? I know this comes from my observations, but having watched the same thing on right-wing television this morning, I know others have experienced it.
Democrats, upon hearing Senator Kennedy has died: He was the lion of the Senate. He was the reason so much historic legislation happened. He was bipartisan, and worked with everyone in the Senate. He leaves a great legacy, and will be missed.
Republicans, upon hearing Senatory Kennedy has died: CHAPPAQUIDIK? (OK, I can’t spell it either)
