“On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked: ‘Who would prefer that Saddam’s torture chambers still be open?’ Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management — U.S. management.”

A speech on the Senate floor, May 10, 2004

This is exactly the behavior you get with rich, lazy, not very smart, lazy, rich, lazy incumbents. They have a self-perpetuating staff of out-of-control, radical, smart, but resentful people who write this extreme, vicious, and baseless crap for him to read on the Senate floor. Same with the Robert Bork stuff. Same with the Clarence Thomas stuff. The idiot barely knows what he is reading but he is practiced to read it with feeling, no matter how untrue and damaging. And he knows that it is a lie but his specialty is promoting lies with feeling.

Durbin is another one like that. Chucky is worse, it seems he actually believes it. Dingy Harry is another one who is staff-fed and when he pops out of the groove he sounds like an idiot ("Coal is killing us!") because he has no core beliefs other than basic survival and smearing the other guy no matter what. Irresponsible scum.

Now let's see what degenerate the good people/"governor" of Massachusetts come up with to serve out his term. God help us.

If Ted Kennedy asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness for every sin he commited he will be forgiven and all of his sins will be wiped away never to be held agaisnt him again..

That is the GRACE GOD grants to all of us as believers in the LAMB of GOD...

GOD commands us to forgive, and if we don’t he cannot forgive us...That is the Word of the LORD.

What does scripture say about praising men who behave wickedly?

I don't judge Ted Kennedy. I don't have that authority. But I certainly don't praise him either. That would not be right.

An evil, evil man will be grandiosely glorified by a corrupt, deceitful sad excuse for a mass media.

For me....thats the phoniest part of the Kennedy legacy....some Catholic Church will will praise him...even tho they stood for everything the Church is against!

Spreading, planting, and legislating socialism and its many cousins IS not Godly. This nation is teetering in the bloody waters of these leftist destroyers. Teddy's future is between him and the Heavenly Father, but the rest of US still walking on God's green earth have to live in the mess this man planted. BAMA... And we learned last week who is Bama's spiritual guide Cain.

“Ted Kennedy, over the decades

The Kennedys: Portrait of an American dynasty

Kennedy: Legendary orator, link to history

Kennedy tumor aggressive, deadly

Remembering Ted Kennedy

NBC’s Brian Williams looks back at the life of U.S. Sen. Edward “Ted” Kennedy.”

Just a few of th inundation we are all hoing to experience over the next week - And the coverage of his Funeral, Uuuugh!!!!

Looks like a good time to re-read “Atlas Shrugged” and a few other lengthy Books. TV and Radio are likely confiscated. And it had just started to free up a little from M Jackson.

I feel the same remorse that the libs felt for Reagan and Tony Snow. Well, wait a minute, they celebrated and were gleeful. I just feel nothing but good riddance Ted. I doubt he will be with Mary Jo, she is in another place.

There goes the filibuster-proof majority for the Dems for 5 months until they have the special election. Guess Ted got what he tried so hard to put into place all those years ago....and wishes now that he didn’t.

In honor of ths momentous occasion, I changed my tagline. Not very PC, I am afraid. But, it is my birthday so I am taking some liberties! Goodness knows, Mr Kennedy took his fair share.
May Mary Jo’s family feel peace today.

Ted Kennedy did me no personal wrong. Therefore I have no duty to forgive him. His political sins I am free to condemn with all my might. There is no forgiveness due on that score.

He would have been dead in 3-6 months without care. Yes, I understand what this DeathCare is all about.

Good riddance to a man who never met an anti-American idea he didn’t embrace. I’d happily urinate on his grave...but I hate the thought of having to stand in a long line.

Fox is running on the Ticker the info about Mary Jo....while showing pictures of Kennedy. At least they are running the ticker. I doubt we’ll see that info anywhere else.

Not as many people as you think will be watching swimmer if Drudge's poll is correct!
