Mark Goddard May Run Against Ted Kennedy
Lake Titicaca | Today | Brainhose

Posted on 05/01/2005 9:22:26 AM PDT by Brainhose

Saturday I had the good fortune of meeting Mark Goddard the former actor best known for his roles in Lost In Space and Johnny Ringo and many others at a local collectibles show. For the last 30 years or so he's been a teacher in Massachusetts, he is very conservative, very smart and very well spoken. He said that he was thinking about running against Ted Kennedy. I encouraged him and volunteered to help his possible campaign. I don't know how to contact him directly, but I bet if you send e-mails to howiecarr@wrko.com he will get them since he appears regularly on this show.

I wish him good luck but as Jesse Ventura said in Predator... Ted Kennedy is "dug in like an Alabama tick".

Exactly. Uncle Ted will be Senator til he keels over on his desk.

Same here. We need to know more about him if he decides to run. No more money to the NRSC or the Republican Party. For now on, direct to the candidates worth supporting. I'll be damn if any of my hard earned money goes to supporting RINOS or RWNBS (Republicans with no balls).

yes, but don't forget the lefties like handsome people...even if they are dumb bricks (like clintin was)so maybe this will go far. Just take a look at kenneeddde on that sailboat and then look at this handsome young man and...he's a teacher to boot. No comparison. The only reason teeddddd has won all the time is there has never been anyone really that good to go up against him. Now maybe he has met his match.

I heard him on the Howie Carr show. He's very well spoken and down to earth. Lots of people called in just to thank him for being a "nice guy in the neighborhood". He's got my vote.

I've heard him quite a bit on the radio, and I talked to him one on one yeterday for well over an hour. He Is sincere and does not appear to be a RINO. But still wouldn't we be better with a RINO than a Wino?
Whatever it takes to break the back of the Kennedy "Dynasty".

Your "now" picture is VERY old. Mark is now 69 years old and shows his age. He still looks good for his age but much more wrinkled than that pic :)

Lost in Space and Johnny Ringo? Make it lost in Massachusetts and RIP Johnny Ringo on Nob hill. Hell, Kennedy could be reelected in Massachusetts if he were six feet under.

Ted Kennedy was elected to the Senate in 1962. He will die there. The last Rep senator filling his seat was Henry Cabot Lodge (1947-53). Kerry is more vulnerable but still virtually unbeatable.

NO we would not be better off with a RINO than a democrat.
The RINO always votes on the left side. The only difference is the Republican Party pays for the RINO while the Democrat Party enjoys the pay off.

You must not be from New England. The last election a wealthy Black real estate investor went up against Ted. His name was Jackie Robinson, He was very bright and articulate. The Kennedy campaign tried all the dirty tricks they could, Jackie eventually lost but it was just amazing the dirty tricks the "Kennedy Kabal" pulled out of their bag.

To be fair, Jack E. Robinson had some issues.

It wouldn't be impossible to beat Teddy Kennedy. Very difficult, I agree, but the bloom is off the rose. For a couple of decades any kennedy could win any election, but in recent years they have started to lose.

Teddy is getting old, he is getting fat and ugly, and he can hardly be said to have much "mystique" left. The right candidate could very possibly beat him. I agree that it wouldn't hurt at all to be handsome and attractive. I never heard of Goddard, but it sounds like a good idea to me. Most current Massachusetts Republicans are pretty hopeless.

there has never been anyone really that good to go up against him.

Mitt Romney challenged him in 1994, the one year when Kennedy looked vulnerable, and still Kennedy won by 17 points. He's a fixture in this state. People love him. Good hair won't be enough to defeat him in this bluest of blue states.

Jack wasn't Ted K. wealthy, he could only produce about $1mil. on paper or in assets. He ran a terrible unmotivated campaign and had his a$$ kicked by that umpa-lumpa. To bad because he came across as a "normal joe".

I don't think it was amazing about the dirty tricks. The Kennedy's and the Clinton's are all the same. Look at the dirty tricks the demos are using now with the court and UN nominations. Oh, and I forgot the other scumbag, Kerry.

Start him running. Maybe the pickled liver will reach room temperature before election day. Maybe the Mass. idiots will notice the difference. Maybe the Mass. Supremes won't rule that the corpse is adequately preserved to last out another term without spoilage (I'm sure some alleged GOP Senator would agree to pair his vote with the corpse for the duration.)
