At the end of Sundays Face the Nation on CBS, host Bob Schieffer fondly remembered Ted Kennedy, exclaiming: "In a sense he was the classic American hero, the imperfect man who was sorely tested and yet in that testing found a way to overcome personal flaws and go on to accomplish great things."
Schieffer began his commentary by noting how Kennedy: "...crashed and crashed again during the early turns of his life, but somehow he kept on going through the sorrows and tragedies over which he had no control and the self-destructiveness over which he did. And in the final laps he won. His children loved him. His contemporaries, even those who often opposed him, admired him. And those whose causes he championed thanked him. To what else can a man aspire?"

I believe it's called "Man-Love". All the male presstitutes also have it for Obama.
Kennedy (all of them) is/was a pompous, pampered, pickle-livered punk with a camelot fantasy and a deranged sense of self based on his willingness to give other peoples’ money to still other people (after he takes his cut) and feel himself a fine fellow for his generosity.
Such BS is why Bob Schieffer is on CBS.
You can fool some of the people but we know what happened when he was driving.
"For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes -- not that you won or lost -- but how you played the Game." Immortal verse from a great scribe of a better journalism era.
Grantland Rice (1880-1954)
I wonder how many times that a real hero like Audy Murphy drove off a bridge in a drunken stupor and abandoned his helpless passenger. Kennedy was a drunk Scotch swilling piece of garbage and his time should have ended at Chappaquidick also. What a shame all these years our country had to endure this pile of goat smegma.
I just realized my clumsy grammar makes it seem Mr. Profumo served up sweat to the undeserving poor. My apologies to him. I’m sure he offered much more tasty meals than that.
Teddy was (in)famous for his waitress sandwich, not a hero...
