Skip to comments.Kennedy Has Surgery on Neck Artery

Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) underwent surgery to help clear a blocked artery in his neck. Kennedy, 75, underwent an hour long operation on his left carotid artery at Massachusetts General Hospital. The procedure was performed by Dr. Bram Stoker, the hospital's chief of vascular surgery.
The blood flow to the senators brain was barely a trickle before the surgery, Stoker said. Essentially, his brain had been running on empty for an indeterminate period of time.
Doctors speculated that the senators prodigious consumption of alcohol probably kept him alive. Alcohol is a vasodilator, Stoker said. This apparently was enough to fuel basic bodily functions. However, based on the senators day-to-day actions, it is also apparent that there was some measure of brain damage.
Ted Kennedy is the lone surviving son in his storied political family. His eldest brother, Joseph, was killed in a World War II airplane crash; President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 and Robert was assassinated in 1968. Ted narrowly escaped death in 1969 when he drove his car into a tidal pond during an extramarital tryst with a young campaign worker who drowned in the incident.

I dislike Ted Kennedy immensely, but I don’t have any wish to see him suffer. I just want him to leave office and political life forever.
His family too.
His brain had been getting slightly more juice than what he left to Mary Jo at the bottom of the river. What a bloated, oily turd. May he suffer long for his misdeeds.
Per Winkipedia(blink blink!)
Abraham "Bram" Stoker (November 8, 1847 April 20, 1912) was an Irish writer, best remembered as the author of the influential horror novel Dracula. In his honour, the Horror Writers Association recognizes "superior achievement" in horror writing with the Bram Stoker Award.
Yep. Got away with with killing her.
