    HARRY REID: "I’m glad I had the opportunity to know Ted Kennedy. Whether you agreed with him or not, what a life he lead with his two brothers being assassinated, his other brother being killed in World War II. And Robert Byrd who just died. What a– he was in the Congress of the United States for more than 25 percent of the time that we have been a country. That’s fairly remarkable."
  • Mika Mortified By Criticism of Carter's Kennedy Bashing

    Mika Brzezinski is no poker face, regularly letting her feelings show as she reacts to the stories of the day. But when it comes to emoting, the Morning Joe co-host outdid herself today, reacting to the criticism the panel leveled at Jimmy Carter for his ungracious bashing of the late Ted Kennedy. In a 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl, a clip from which Morning Joe aired, an embittered Carter flatly says the failure to get national health care during his administration was Ted Kennedy's "fault." Carter accused Kennedy of "deliberately blocking" Carter's proposed legislation, in order to deny him...

    This is one story that U.S. News & World Report's Washington Whispers might want to keep to a low whisper or risk even more ridicule than what they are already receiving. Paul Bedard, writing in Washington Whispers, quotes Kennedy's biographer and former girlfriend who claim that Ted was really an innocent victim of the Chappaquiddick accident. Here is Kennedy biographer Burton Hersh making the case for Kennedy as merely a lousy driver: Now, a year after Kennedy died, his lifelong biographer Burton Hersh, armed with fresh interviews with Kennedy's mistress at the time, tells Whispers that the whole July 1969...

    For many, the name Chappaquiddick conjures images of a drunken Sen. Edward Kennedy hitting on Mary Jo Kopechne in his Oldsmobile, losing control, and plunging into the water of Poucha Pond on Chappaquiddick Island, adjacent to Martha's Vineyard where President Obama was vacationing. Kopechne, a family friend, drowned; and Teddy fumbled for excuses about what happened. Now, a year after Kennedy died, his lifelong biographer Burton Hersh, armed with fresh interviews with Kennedy's mistress at the time, tells Whispers that the whole July 1969 episode should have been handled as a simple crash, leaving the senator's legacy untainted. "It was...
  • KENNEDY WAR WITH TED WIDOW

    Kennedy clan members are coldly attempting to drive out TED KENNEDY's widow VICKI from the family compound in which she lives, sources say. According to the will of her late husband - who died at age 77 of brain cancer in August 2009 - Vicki can live in Ted's rambling seaside home in Hyannis, Mass., for the rest of her life, sources say. "Ted's wish was that the house - which was originally the home of his parents Joe Sr. and Rose - would eventually become a museum when Vicki no longer lived there," said a family source. "The family...

    J.D. Hayworth’s latest television ad links Arizona Sen. John McCain, his GOP Senate primary opponent, with President Barack Obama and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy as proponents of "amnesty" for undocumented immigrants. The ad, which comes amid intense controversy over Arizona's immigration bill, hits McCain for his 2006 attempt to push bipartisan immigration reform through the Senate. It starts airing Friday. The ad opens with a shot of McCain proudly declaring “I helped author with Sen. Kennedy comprehensive immigration reform and fought for it twice” and quickly follows with a clip of Obama stating that he “stood with Ted Kennedy...

    When President Ronald Reagan nominated Judge Robert Bork for the U.S. Supreme Court, one of the most offensive and dishonest assaults against a man by the U.S. Government was launched, and Ted Kennedy hurled the first and immediate lethal blows. Kennedy's successful telling of lies about Judge Bork from the floor of the U.S. Senate was wildly successful, and it was one of the most shameful days in the history of American government. Elena Kagan, Obama's Supreme Court Nominee, is on the record saying she "loved" borking Bork.

    Previously secret FBI records released today reveal that Sen. Edward Kennedy may have participated in steamy sex parties with his two brothers, Marilyn Monroe and "Rat Pack" crooners Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. A racy memo from 1965 notes that a New York woman reportedly had "considerable information about sex parties" involving the Kennedy brothers John and Robert, Monroe, Sinatra and Davis. While the source of the information is not described fully in the documents, "it was reported" that Jacqueline Hammond, the wealthy ex-wife of a former US ambassador to Spain, knew about the raunchy parties at the upscale...

    Senator Edward M. Kennedy offered to work in close concert with high level Soviet officials to sabotage President Ronald Reagan’s re-election efforts and to arrange for congenial American press coverage of General Secretary Yuri Andropov, according to a 1983 KGB document. Specifically, Kennedy offered to have “representatives of the largest television companies in the U.S. contact Y.V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interview.” The idea here would be for the Soviet leader to make an end run around Reagan and make a direct appeal to the American people. Kennedy suggested that Walter Cronkite, Barbara Walters and Elton...

  • Who Can Receive Communion? (Catholic Caucus)

    The Holy Eucharist is the most important of the seven sacraments because, in this and in no other sacrament, we receive the very body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. Innumerable, precious graces come to us through the reception of Holy Communion. Communion is an intimate encounter with Christ, in which we sacramentally receive Christ into our bodies, that we may be more completely assimilated into his. "The Eucharist builds the Church," as Pope John Paul II said (Redemptor Hominis 20). It deepens unity with the Church, more fully assimilating us into Christ (1 Cor. 12:13; CCC 1396)....
