Jeff Merkley is a new Senator for me, although I was proud to be a supporter-from-afar when he ran for the Senate from Oregon in 2008. I like his taking-questions-from-constituents YouTubes and was happy to see Atrios featured one of them on today’s Eschaton front page.

People are discussing how to best honor the late great Teddy Kennedy, and the first thought is to do what he would have wanted us to do — which is to memorialize him by getting meaningful health care reform passed and made into law. But that’s not allowed for Democrats. Remember the ginned-up real-time media outrage over five minutes of remarks during Paul Wellstone’s Williams Arena memorial event in 2002? Remember also when, a few short weeks later when Strom Thurmond had his 100th birthday party, the media did NOT stage a real-time freakout over partisanship when Thurmond’s birthday party was not only turned into a GOP campaign ad, but into praise for Thurmond’s deeply racist career?
