    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 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 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.

    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...

    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)....

Barnicle gave his award-winning performance on today's Morning Joe, in the course of tossing two super-softballs to David Axelrod. Barnicle's first lob was about the difficulties of governing in this hyper-partisan, cable-TV age. His second softball chastised Republicans for their announced intention to oppose Pres. Obama's Supreme Court nominee. Which raises the question: do the names Robert Bork—or Clarence Thomas—mean anything to Mike Barnicle? View...

    DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) -- Edmund Dinis (duh-NEEZ'), the former district attorney who oversaw the investigation into the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's involvement in the Chappaquiddick case, has died at age 85. Henry Arruda, general manager of the radio station Dinis owned, says the former prosecutor died Sunday at an assisted-living center in Dartmouth, Mass. Dinis was voted out of office in 1970, the year after Kennedy's car went off a Martha's Vineyard bridge into a pond with campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne inside.

    In 1991 the political world was rocked by the unlikeliest of victories. Harris Wofford, a former aide for John F. Kennedy, upset two-term Republican Governor Richard Thornburgh in a special election to fill the seat of the late Pennsylvania Senator John Heinz. Wofford was guided to his victory by a little-known campaign manager named James Carville, who told him to make a bold and unequivocal case for “universal health care.” Wofford’s underdog victory left the GOP shell-shocked. Fast-forward 19 years: it is the Democrats who are now faced with divining the results of another underdog’s victory. In January, a little-known...

Bottom line is, it just served a lot of people’s political interests to spin this story the way they wanted it.”

Now that's a stimulus. We hear that the administration is considering taking a more populist tack as it sails the choppy political waters of 2010. Some of President Obama's plans reportedly include several tax tidbits for the "middle class," including a doubling of the child care tax credit for families below $85,000 in income, and $1.6 billion for child care and a cap on student loan payments. Such transparent populism...

Yes, it is about a general revulsion at government spending, what is sometimes called "the blob."

A little-known Republican state legislator came from a 30-percentage point deficit to win Edward Kennedy's old seat in the US Senate in Massachusetts in what appeared to be a massive protest vote against the party that controls both chambers of Congress and the White House.

    Burying the Dead: Catholic Funerals   Wisdom 1:12-14 "Seek not death in the error of your life, neither procure ye destruction by the works of your hands. For God made not death, neither hath He pleasure in the destruction of the living. For He created all things that they might be: and he made the nations of the earth for health: and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor kingdom of hell upon the earth."

    The Massachusetts Senate race has three potential effects on health care reform: Procedural; Vote counting; and Potential blowback to the procedural response. If Mr. Brown wins Tuesday, the direct procedural effects are the least important. A 41st vote would give Senate Republicans the power to obstruct but not kill a bill. Even if Brown were to be seated Wednesday, the President would still have procedural options that allow him to enact a law with only Democratic votes. The increased power of Republicans would be indirect: they could make the process path more difficult, requiring the President, Speaker Pelosi and Leader...

    A few other things that Ted Kennedy’s hometown newspaper forgot to mention about Lt. Col. Scott Brown: * He knows how to drive and won’t likely submerge any cars or women under water and forget to call the police and let them know about it until many hours later. * He won’t wake up his nephew in the middle of the night to go to Au Bar to pick up chicks and rape ‘em. * We won’t likely be reading about his liquid lunches at La Brasserie, where the main course is en flagrante delicto with some unselect, willing bim....

    Shaken by polls showing Republican Scott Brown surging in the Senate race that could decide the fate of President Obama's agenda, Democrats on Friday scrambled to shore up the battered candidacy of Martha Coakley, the state attorney general whose once-commanding lead appeared to vanish in the space of two weeks. The White House announced that Obama will campaign here Sunday. Former president Bill Clinton broke away from promoting Haitian relief to rally the Democratic faithful, which polls show has taken a victory by Coakley as much for granted as analysts say her campaign clearly did. Both candidates announced plans to...

    Senate Demonrats: The video includes archival footage of Senator Kennedy as well as Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Barack Obama discussing the need for comprehensive health reform through the years. Each leader's work to extend health coverage to more Americans is highlighted. Decades-old clips and recent interviews with Senator Kennedy's colleagues look back at what he described as the cause of his life: making health care a fundamental right for all Americans.

    Politics: With the Massachusetts Senate race in a dead heat, the Service Employees International Union makes a massive ad buy for a Democrat raising money from lobbyists. Sorry, Sen. Kerry, but the tea party's coming. Having received a tsunami warning, the purple shirts of the SEIU have sprung into action with a major ad buy trying to pull the Senate candidacy of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley from the jaws of defeat. The buy size of $685,000, extracted from the union dues of not-always-willing workers, is one of the biggest of the election. The ads note that Republican Scott Brown...

    Scott Brown on the hustings: Will Ted Kennedy's government health care dream die at the hands of his successor? APPolitics: Democrats seated two senators under shady conditions and rewrote a state election law to keep their filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Now they plan to deny Scott Brown entry if he wins Ted Kennedy's seat. The fate of health care reform may very well hinge on the Jan. 19 special election in Massachusetts to fill the seat of Kennedy, for whom passage has been touted as a sort of final tribute to this champion of the nanny state. As Democratic...

    From The New York Daily News Bill Clinton helped sink his wife’s chances for an endorsement from Ted Kennedy by belittling Barack Obama as nothing but a race-based candidate. “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee,” the former president told the liberal lion from Massachusetts, according to the gossipy new campaign book, “Game Change.”The book says Kennedy was deeply offended and recounted the conversation to friends with fury. After Kennedy sided with Obama, Clinton reportedly griped, “the only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.”

    Bill Clinton was at the centre of a race storm last night after he was accused of denigrating Barack Obama. The former president allegedly claimed during the hard-fought Democratic primary race: ‘A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.’ He is said to have made the racist remark in a phone call entreating Senator Teddy Kennedy, the party’s vastly influential elder statesman, to endorse his wife, Hillary, in the delicately balanced 2008 nomination battle.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid privately described then-candidate Barack Obama during the presidential campaign as a black candidate who could be successful thanks in part to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." In a stunning and disgusting show of blatant racism, elitist and white supremacist Harry Reid has been exposed in a new blockbuster book. I didn't know people actually spoke this way. But it's hardly surprising: the Democrats were the party of slavery, KKK Exalted cyclops Robert Byrd, and anti-civil rights until they figured out how to make African...
