Wheee, Ted Kennedy made it to the DNC and just gave his speech. The media was abuzz all day about whether he'd make it in person, or appear on video.
In case you've been living under a rock, Ted was diagnosed a few months ago with a very aggressive and terminal brain tumor. The prognosis for those with his diagnosis is only about two years. He's been undergoing treatment and he looked amazing - considering he's about 1000 years old - and sounded strong, clear, and confident. I'm not going to critique his speech at all because, fuck, he's Ted Kennedy and he's dying and he still made it out to Denver because his work is so important to him.
Teddy, I rip on you all the time, but I love you! Keep fighting that bear!
