He inspired the Term Limits movement. There. I thought of a second thing.
A 76 year old with an incurable brain tumor? He should have just taken the pain pill, according to Obama.
This is the FBI file on Chappaquiddick. Can anyone imagine had this happened now? Clearly Senator Stennis failed to repremand or hold any hearing of Senator Kennedy.
The file contains the inquest whereby Kennedy testified in his own behalf. It is incredibly perjurous.
No more waitress sandwiches with Sen. Dodd......
I propose a moment of silence.
I won’t post for one minute.
I was thinking the same thing. Look for the next long-winded obama infomercial coming to all TV sets real soon.
As a Christian atheist (someone who doesn't believe in the existence of any deity, but more or less follows the code of Christian ethics), I was only being rhetorical. If I'm wrong about the existence of a deity, and some deity does exist, and that deity is just (Vishnu, Apollo, Jesus or whatever), Kennedy is being spit-roasted over a hot fire for the rest of eternity.
Kennedy smears President Bush and our troops on the US Senate floor:
He described the Iraq war as a fraud made up in Texas as part of political strategy accused the President of the US of telling lie, after lie, after lie, in order to go to war in Iraq.
Kennedy smears Judge Alito...Mrs. Alito in tears:
In suggesting that Samuel Alito had belonged to a racist conservative group, Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy relied heavily on an essay published by the organization that sounded like a bigoted rant. The essay, titled In Defense of Elitism.....But the magazines editor at the time says the article was pure satire, a send-up of what liberals think conservatives think. He added quote, I think left-wing groups have been feeding Senator Kennedy snippets and he has been mindlessly reciting them,
Sen. Edward Kennedy Smears the Nation
On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked: Who would prefer that Saddams torture chambers still be open? Shamefully, we now learn that Saddams torture chambers reopened under new management U.S. management.
A speech on the Senate floor, May 10, 2004.
Kennedys smear of Judge Bork on the US Senator floor:
Robert Borks America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is and is often the only protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy....
Kennedy betrays President Reagan:
May 14, 1983 document from the KGB archives reveals that Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) reached out to the General Secretary of the Soviet Unions Communist Party, Yuri Andropov, to propose a kind of public relations strategy to counter President Reagans defense policy initiatives toward the Soviet Union, policies that Kennedy felt were too aggressive.
Dodd has a new pal now. Al Franken and he will sandwich a waitress together to mark his passing. Or perhaps he’ll get together with Barney Frank and sandwich a pepper-grinder boy.
Very funny, wish I would have thought of that.
Spiritually speaking, Ted Kennedy has been dead practically since birth. He spent his whole life a human appendage of a rotting, corrupt party, a crook who would emerge even from the hottest bath still stinking of booze. He survived longer than the rest of his family because his “life” was, until today, just a biological technicality — it is hard to kill what has, inside, been dead all along.
RIP...? I think not.
hes with michael jackson among others.
What a zombie movie that would make!
Now you’ve given me another of his achievements to mention:
He kept the stereotype about Irishmen and drinking alive. Well, that is an accomplishment, isn’t it? Let’s make a list, so we won’t have to dig among the posts. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
1. Helped guarantee Reagan’s election in 1980 by undermining Carter.
2. Inspired term limits.
3. Kept the stereotype of Irish drinking problems alive.
4. ??? Anyone?
BFD. Anyone want odds on Congress renaming it “The Ted Kennedy Universal Right to Free High Quality Health Care Act”?
The inspiration for Mayor Quimby on The Simpsons?
OK. That’s four.
Do I hear five?
I am dancing! He was a drunk who killed a girl and got away with it and has ever since been a tyrant in the Senate. He’s not exactly someone I would call a friend.
OK. Here’s the updated list:
1. Helped elect Reagan.
2. Inspired term limits.
3. Kept Irish stereotypes alive.
4. Inspired Simpson character.
5. Gave CodeToad excuse to get some exercise.
6. Gave me cause to procrastinate money-making but tedious on-line chore.
7. Might inspire the Dems to pull another Wellstone fiasco.
8. ?? Come on. Let’s go for an even ten. People?
The last few days some liberals in the state-run media have been wishing out loud that Kennedy would resign since he has been incapable of voting and they desperately need his vote to communize our healthcare system. Strange that he would suddenly die on demand.
Not surprising though that his last act on earth would be a selfish one: holding his senate power well beyond his ability to fill the position. Power is EVERYTHING to these liberals and that should scare us all.
“The one good thing I could say about The Swimmer, is that he torpedoed Jimmy Carters reelection bid. So in a way, thanks to Ted, we got 8 years of Reagan. I really had to reach there to find something.”
My mother once told me to never speak ill of the deceased so I agree. Ted Kennedy helped weaken Carter in the 1980 Dem Primaries. He helped pave the way for Reagan. Thank you, Ted. RIP.
