It's about Ted Kennedy making a complete fool of himself.

Par for the course.

Howie Carr has enough material now for a whole year of Kennedy's "Wizard of UHHS" soundbites.

Kennedy is being disingenious, sarcastic, he's reduced to nasty, snide comments, intentionally misstating what Alito said earlier, trying to trap him. Not working Teddy!!!

DT's.....he'll feel better after lunch

Darn it--I have to go to my church and spend some time making quilts with some wonderful ladies who call themselves the "comforters'. Am in one way reluctant to go--but I think after listening to Kennedy I really need some comfort!

See everybody later. Go Alito!!

Actually, Bill Schneider is the worst of CNN....if fact, the worst of all TV.

Strictly because he is THE Josef Goebbels of this country.....the bespectacled, soft-spoken, evil perverter of truth, the purveyer of unending phony poll statistics, the aging radical, commie, scum-bag posing as your well-groomed "old Uncle Bill" while he spins, lies, subverts and betrays this country.

Neither Wolf or the War Slut are that evil yet, although they work hard at it. They just don't have Schneider's crafty sublety and smoothness down like he.......and they probably never will have these vile talents.

The bland, almost unnoticeable Bill Schneider is the premier propaganda apparatchik of the left in this nation. Pay close, close, close attention to him sometime, freeper friends.

Hey, let's ask Kennedy about how his zeal for affirmative action doesn't apply to his personal life.

He favors racial set asides ensuring that minority businesses get guaranteed portions of contracts.

But whre his family interests are concerns, those views fade.

The Kennedy family limited partnerships - WDC Associates and Fourth and D Street Partners had a minority clause which Kennedy got Washington mayor Marion Berry to waive and so the Kennedys were allowed to purchase an entire city block in D.C. just block from the Capitol Building.

Are we REALLY watching this? Kennedy is making a fool of himself on national tv. He attempts to attribute these ideas (from CAP) to be Alito's own. Does he assume we are all idiots?

His tone of voice- is hilarious...like he CAUGHT ALITO in a lie or something...

Alito is plainly FED UP.

Kennedy's tone has the scent of desperation to it ... like last night Ralph Neas turned over and whispered "you were a failure - get it right this time!" into Teddy's dangling earlobe.

What the hell is Teddy talking about? Teddy: "Did you read that WSJ article...a periodical that is read by...uh...um...er...people...er...um...."

I think even Mrs. Alito was holding back a laugh. It could not be easy.

Dear Tedward.

Please ask Schumer why he belongs to an organization which excludes women as full members.

Here's a question that Chuckie will dodge-- "Can a woman belong to your lodge?" Female Masons he'd thwart, But he'd help gals abort. His thinking is such a hodge-podge.

Haha! Alito's wife laughed at the way Tedward tried to phrase his question.

Ah now I get what he's accusing him of. HE doesn't like the idea that Alito thought the ROTC *should* be allowed on campus.

Oh, and Kennedy is an anti gun zealot. So it was pretty surprising to find out that his bodyguard, Chuck Stein, was arrestesd at teh Russell Senate Office BUilding for carrying unregistered weapons.

The weapons weren't pea shooters either. He was carrying a handgun, TWO submachine guns and 146 rounds of ammunition.

See - it's protection for me but not for thee.
