By Scott Malone 20 mins ago BOSTON (Reuters) U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a towering figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, has died, his family said. He was 77. "Edward M. Kennedy, the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply, died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port (Massachusetts)," the Kennedy family said in a statement. One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008. "We've lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever," the family statement said. "He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it. He always believed that our best days were still ahead, but it's hard to imagine any of them without him," the family added.

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.

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.
Thanks for all of that info.
oops, sorry. Let us mourn...
Well, this certainly will crimp Obamas vacation. How inconvenient!
This damn traitor lived far to long.

I would like to extend our sympathies to the Kennedy family as we hear word about the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy. He believed in our country and fought passionately for his convictions. -Sarah Palin and family
It will give him the chance to get in front of the cameras that he said he didn’t want on his (10th) vacation, to mention Kennedy in passing (literally, in this case) then put in a plug for his health insurance reform, or whatever the hell it’s being called these days.
