The New Heroes of Ricochet

 

I don’t follow politics so I can watch liberals cry. My goal when arguing with my leftist friends is not to make them secrete so many tears that I can comfortably wallow in a pool of progressive lamentations. However, I must admit, upon hearing about the retirement of Justice Kennedy, I did take a trip over to the usual suspects (Vox, Slate, ThinkProgress, Salon) just to see how lachrymose they would become. I did not expect to stay… I didn’t plan to gloat… but despite my intentions, I found myself staying to take a nice long shower in the torrent of liberal tears, I showered for longer than 20 minutes just to stick it to the California water police.

While there, I was a little surprised to learn that Justice Kennedy is no longer the Number One GRH (Gay Rights Hero). Merely by deciding at the age of 81 to retire, he has forfeited any and all plaudits for rulings he made previously. By leaving the national stage a lifetime of work was washed down the drain, along with those tears.

I need to research Ted Kennedy for my next novel and I really, really don’t want to wade through hundreds of pages of apology and hero worship. Neither do I particularly want to limit myself to hit pieces. Can someone recommend a good bio or two that documents the sleaze in an honest way? (And […]
