‘We’re heading into nut country’

Ed Morrissey, writing at Hot Air ….

Jack Kennedy was killed in an open car in Dallas in the midst of the most hated–it’s like the mood we’re in right now. [Chris Matthews]

Well, except for that pesky fact that John Kennedy was assassinated not by some “un-American” conservative angry at government expansion, but by an avowed Communist, as Mark Finkelstein points out at NB.

In fact, it was the Texas Democrat party that President John Kennedy went to Dallas to visit, and had characterized to an aide as, “We’re heading into nut country,” nearly 46 years ago.

JFK had gone to Texas to attend fundraisers, and to try and heal the wounds in the South that came as a result of his administration’s agenda. It was a record, except for a few memorable moments, that was largely unremarkable.

The imaginary John Kennedy is remembered by Matthews and millions of others as one of the greatest ever. That his youngest brother is lionized by these same people is no great surprise.

Kennedy strokes

A developing story from Massachusetts: Senator Ted Kennedy has been rushed to the hospital with “stroke-like symptoms.” from AP

Kennedy spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter confirmed in a statement that Kennedy went to Cape Cod Hospital on Saturday morning “after feeling ill at his home.” After discussion with his doctors in Boston, Kennedy was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for further examination.

“He is currently under evaluation that information will be released as it becomes available,” she said.

Hyannis Fire Lt. Bill Rex told The Associated Press that a 911 call came in from the Kennedy family compound at 8:19 a.m. A man was transported to Cape Cod Hospital and transferred by air at 10:10 a.m. from Barnstable Municipal Airport to Massachusetts General.

David Reilly, a spokesman for Cape Cod Hospital, said that Kennedy was brought to the hospital at about 9 a.m. and stayed for about an hour before being flown by helicopter to the Boston hospital. He said he could not comment on Kennedy’s condition or treatment because of medical privacy laws.

The solemn tones of the TV talking heads leads one to believe this is pretty serious.
