Most of the "Wellstone" political martyr talk wasn't done by the Dem party or the Kennedy family, but by the media. Almost every news and quasi-news show reporting Ted's death mentioned health care within ninety seconds of mentioning his death. The service (from what I gather, I didn't watch it) was mostly tactful.
Except for this (via HotAir):
Let us pray for Obamacare... At the least, this is pretty tacky. But ya can't attack little kids, can you?
