Fighting the repeal of the inheritence tax was ALSO Fat Ted Bastard's lifelong goal. How much of his estate went to the IRS when he died?

I'd like to visit his grave, too.

Right after polishing off a 40.

I'm serious.

Ted Kennedy’s not the first dead Democrat to vote for Obamacare.

She must have been delivering fresh Gin and telling Lard Ass that she was going down to sign up for the new, improved Obamacare.

Just remember, Mary Jo’s death was not caused by a lack of Socialized health care in America.

I’d put down so much Guinness beforehand that I’d likely piss out the Eternal Flame on his brother’s grave, too.

Arlington is sacred ground, and I wouldn’t desecrate any portion of that national cemetery without good cause. Considering that ObamaCare passed, I’ll be visiting Kennedy’s grave within the week.

Give me a break. Miss Vicki should
1. Vist MaryJo’s grave
2. Use this new POS legislation to get her stepson Patrick Kennedy the mental heath care he soooooo obviously needs.

[Everytime I see Patrick Kennedy I want to say “Crybaby, crybaby suck your thumb. Wash it off with bubble gum.” I wonder how many times he got the crap beaten out of him at school?]

She looked at the grave and said, “You know, Ted, it was a good thing I always did the driving”.

(I know it’s a little late but the grave visit brought it to mind...sorry...)

Ted’s symptoms came to national attention when he drove a young woman off a bridge and took twelve hours to tell the authorities so they could go rescue her in the air pocket inside the car.

Decades later, it was that same brain what done him in.

Say hello to Ted for us Mary Jo. And say it with a good stout four by four.

Ted Kennedy would have been most comfortable if burried face down out behind a saloon/brothel sleaze eazy in a dirty run down skid row ally.

No offense intended, Steelfish, but don’t you think this headline deserves a “BARF” alert?

Aside from being a Kennedy, what did he do in life that allowed for a spot in Arlington to be wasted on him?

I guess if there is a silver lining today, it’s the reminder that Ted is dead. Murtha, too. It hasn’t been a complete waste this year.

Wouldn’t it be funny to train a dog to take a daily dump on that grave...

Maybe if it was covered in kitty litter, a stray cat would use it.

They desecrated Arlington by laying him in it.
