From: http://www.julescrittenden.com/ Meanwhile, listening to ”Reflections on Sen. Kennedy … Lion of the Senate” on the Diane Rehm Show on the drive home last night, I was deeply moved to hear Newsweek’s Ed Klein tell guest host Katty Kay about Kennedy’s love of humor. How the late senator loved to hear and tell Chappaquiddick jokes, and was always eager to know if anyone had heard any new ones. Not that Kennedy lacked remorse, Klein quickly added, seeming to intuit that my jaw and perhaps those of other listeners had just hit the floorboards. I gather it was a self-deprecating maneuver on Kennedy’s part, exercised with the famous Kennedy charm, though it sounds like one of those “I guess you had to have been there” things. <snip>
Ted Kennedy — ROT IN PIECES, YOU FRIGGIN DOUCHEBUCKET. - BigFurHat
And if you really want your blood pressure to spike, like you’ve had a Jolt Cola enema, read what buttberet Melissa Lafsky, a blogger at HuffPo, says about Mary Jo Kopechne. She writes that Kopechne was a civil rights advocate herself, and it’s a shame that she couldn’t have seen what Ted Kennedy accomplished in his career. Lafsky states that Kopechne’s death was a “catalyst” to Kennedy’s career and Kopechne MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT HER OWN DEATH WAS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!! This is not a piece from THE ONION, folks. This is the left talking with a straight face. I hope Melissa Lafsky can be the catalyst for someone’s career…. tonight…. under a friggin oil truck….
