Forget Sam Alito's tenuous ties, two decades ago, to the Concerned Alumni of Princeton.
Where's the outrage about Sen. Edward Kennedy's continuing membership in the Owl Club?
Kennedy relentlessly badgered Judge Alito for listing the Princeton group on a job application in 1985, but The Washington Times reported Thursday that the Massachusetts senator remains active with the Owl - one of nine males-only fraternities that in 1984 Harvard "booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws, authored by Mr. Kennedy."
TheNew York Times examined the records of CAP and found no evidence Alito was an active member.
Yet the Washington paper found that on Sept. 7 Kennedy updated his personal information on the Owl Club's online directory, including his current D.C. address.
Yet another reason no one should give a hoot about Kennedy's bluster.
Thats the pig calling the cow fat, isn't it?
But hey!.......He's a KENNEDY!
I hope the useless libs keep it up so that even the most mentally-challened amongst them, GET IT finally. I am still waiting for the day when a real American conservative (not many there) in Congress will stand up and DEMAND THE LIBS EXPLAIN WHAT THEY DO FOR AMERICA!!!
The NYT won't print that embarassing encounter either...
"Kennedy forgets to lead by example"
That's amusing. Kennedy shows no signs of ever having led by example.
That's different. Kennedy is a Democrat, you see . . .
He and OJ could form an exclusive club, too.
Jay Leno said last night that Kennedy himself had belonged to an all male club in college - but that women weren't allowed in for their own safety.
He leads by example when doing shots at the Senate bar.
I wouldn't mind MA re-electing this baffoon if he just kept his mouth shut;
But for TED KENNEDY to lecture ANYBODY about ethics...
Technically you have to know how to do it before you can forget it.
Kennedy belongs to exclusive club

Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment....
Another example of Ready Teddy getting a free pass.
It is amazing...
"Sen. Edward M. Kennedy belongs to a social club for Harvard students and alumni that was evicted from campus nearly 20 years ago after refusing to allow female members."
"According to the online membership directory of the Owl Club, the Massachusetts Democrat updated his personal information -- including the address of his home, which is in his wife's name -- on Sept. 7."
"The club has long been reviled on campus as "sexist" and "elitist" and, in 1984, was booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws..."
As the DUmmies would say: This has LEGS! Kennedy is TOAST!
Kennedy is just doing his immitation of Joseph McCarthy.
at least it kept him from getting to the White House as president himself. I think it's not Mary Jo's death that gnaws at him still but the fact that he didn't get to be president because of it.
And they look down their noses at the South? Alas, Babylon.
I wonder if this is affiliated with the Bohemian Grove Cult, that burns a sacrifice with the 40'owl..

Don't get mad, get happy and have some fun along the way.
From now, until the hour he leaves the Senate, wherever he goes, there could be a contingent of varying size standing nearby chanting: "Whoooo, Whoooo, Whooo....."
and another contingent nearby chanting: "Mary Jo, Mary Jo, Mary Jo, ...."
One of the Irish online bookies (Tradesport.com?) could sell futures on how long he lasts.
Borking the Borker (Porker?) for fun and profit.
Oh, he "leads" by example alright. Re-calibrate example detector,gang.
IIRC that Life Magazine cover was pre-Chappaquiddick. Kennedy was injured in a plane crash. Thus the back brace.
Owl Club 30 Holyoke St Cambridge, MA 02138-5902
Right between the outrage about Sen. Byrd's KKK membership, and the outrage about Sen. Kerry's membership in the VVAW, which seriously considered assassinating US senators.
Ted Kennedy quizzing Sam Alito about Vanguard mutual funds is like a prostitute demanding to know if a nun has ever thought about having an impure thought.
This is what Greenfield was talking about:
Conservative activists, meanwhile, were eager to point out that Mr. Kennedy was on shaky ground accusing the nominee of associating with people opposed to the inclusion of women in private institutions.
The eight-term senator belonged to an all-male social club the Owl at Harvard University.
The Owl refused to admit women until it was forced to do so during the 1980s, according to records kept by the Harvard Crimson, the student newspaper.
This kind of guilt by association, I think, is highly unfair. I'm sure that despite having Senator Kennedy as a member, the Owl club is a fine institution.
Oh don't worry, nobody's likely to notice it. Except a few aging human almanacs. :)
To me, the Owl Club isn't as big of a deal as Senator Byrd. For heaven's sake, Kennedy is in the Democratic party with a guy who was a member of the KKK! And he's worried about the viewpoints of Judge Alito's associates???
"That Ted Kennedy was allowed to escape justice when he was clearly guilty of negligent homicide at a minimum and then REWARDED with a life of political royalty in the U.S. Senate says a lot about the people of Massachusetts and liberals in general."
I read into the story that Kennedy and The Owl Club decided to let in women, not that Teddy and The Owl Club decided to leave Harvard's umbrella so as to continue to prohibit women...
Keep pounding him, lol.
A few weeks ago, my 14yr old daughter was in the car with me, and in front of us was an old Dodge with a bumper sticker that said, "Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my gun." She asked me what it meant, when I explained...without bias, all she said was, "and he never went to jail!?!" Now, I ask you, if a 14 year old has a better grasp of the situation, what does that tell us?
Thanks for the ping!
