No politician in America has a darker history with the waters off Martha's Vineyard than Senator Ted Kennedy.
The Chappaquiddick Kid has been leading a three-year old battle to stop a windmill energy farm. A Boston company proposed building 130 wind turbines over a 24 square mile area off the Massachusetts coast. The wind turbines would provide three-quarters of Cape Cod's energy needs and nearly two percent for all of New England instead of relying on coal burning power plants. Greenpeace supported the idea.
Yet big-time environmental liberals, the Chappaquiddick Kid, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the befuddled Walter Cronkite oppose the plan. Cronkite admitted it was a NIMBY issue not-in-my-backyard. The infamous Kennedy compound, and Cronkite's seaside home are on the nearby shore. Located six miles offshore, the turbines wouldn't even be visible from land. Their opposition is over how it would affect their offshore sailing activities. Other wealthy Cape Cod residents worry the windmills might disrupt Figawi, an annual yacht regatta.

These are the limousine liberals who never feel the pain caused by their misguided nanny-state policies. Let them "take one for the team" this time!
At least Cronkite admitted he's a hypocrite. Gotta give 'em that. I think we should build a nuclear power plant in James Taylor's back yard.
They are all talk as usual. Why people continue to vote for Ted Kennedy is a mystery to me!

Nobody suffers like a rich liberal.
Not In My Back Yard will you put those nasty looking fans.
Wait: those houses face the sea, that would put them in their Front Yard. Bwahahahaahahaha
Fat Ted , says dont do as I do, Do as I tell you to do.
Bloated Piece of whale crap.
"Figawi?" I thought that was an indian tribe! Oh! Wait a minute! That's the Fugawi tribe.
Don't you just feel their pain? I've got my hankie all ready for those tears I want to shed.
Because he continues to bring home the pork (and I don't just mean himself).
Bottom line, that's all most people judge by.
As in "We're the Fugawi"!
Yet he continues to complain about energy prices.
I thought it was mispronouncing "Where the Fugawi?"
Senator Ted "The Killer Orca" Kennedy is deadset against the idea: there might be more things to run into with his sailboat while under the influence.
