Boston Globe Kennedy
Senator Edward Kennedy, 77, dies
Miss Kim is reporting that the news world in Boston has come to a grinding halt over the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy.

My only question is this: considering his championing of abortion rights, Chappaquiddick, and all the other family shenanigans, is Ted in Heaven?

    More Oxegyn for the rest of us.

  • OldnyFirefighter

    Now if we can just give Pelosi & Reid a peach & tell them it is a grape, maybe they will choke to death & the Dems temporarily loose their filibuster proof majority. Naughty me, it must take my medication!

  • typos be damned, I meant “I’m just glad he’s gone

  • that’s right Lou, that “evil” Bush. Man I’m just he’s gone

    speaking of Moammar Khadafy, I think it’s weird as hell that the Libyan Government owns a big plot of land…in NEW JERSEY of all places and he’ll be there next month. so damn weird..

    “1 suspect in custody following Dem HQ vandalism in Denver”
    ‘Guess the party affiliation? Hint: not a Republican’

    Why DO Dems trash and eat their own? I don’t get it..are they THAT ruthless? guess so…

    “Candidly speaking: There may be worse to come”

    I guess you could say that phrase I heard that is new to me – “that’s so Obama!” hee hee!

    “Obama golfs at Mink Meadows – no kidding”

    I play golf too, not that great, but 5 bucks says even I can play better than him

  • lpswampy

    And now for an agonizing week of laying in state and all the ceremonial BS. I’m appalled that he will be buried in Arlington. It pains me to think how the stench of his corps will putrefy that hollowed ground.

    But now maybe Mary Jo Kopechne and family will have closure.

  • louielouie

    it’s bush’s fault.

    Actually: “Lion of the Senate” is closer to the truth that you might think.

    Lions (the ones who lead prides) usually do nearly nothing, as they do not hunt, they are simply fed by the lionesses (the taxpayers, working hard to pay the hardly-working elected official) sleep most of the day, and make babies (endoctrination?)

    Usually what happens is that eventually, a younger lion arrives, kills the older one and takes control of his pride (and of the lionesses…i.e taxpayers). What is interesting too, is that this lion that just took control will systematically kill all cubs of the old one.

    So Kennedy being the Lion of the Senate is accurate…just not in the sense the Boston Globe puts it.

  • Igor

    “Lion of the Senate”?? Did I mis-read something? I thought he was the “Lush of the Senate”.

    No, he ain’t in Heaven as you know it, Bob. He’s in the Spirit Prison, awaiting Judgment day (ask any Mormon what I am referring to).

    The Machine, be nice to Cindy – it’s gonna be a shock when she finally passes into the Spirit world and finds out that God really DOES exist. In the meantime, it’s up to her whether she believes or not. “You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink. You can lead a man to College but you cannot make him think!”

    IT Nerd, rumor/legend – I’m willing to bet it was because he was so blind drunk he needed time to metabolize the alcohol – he certainly wasn’t in good enough shape to think clearly much less coherently…

    Crowhorse, OF COURSE Massachusetts is going to change the law back to where it was – the Dems will do whatever chicanery they can to remain in power. That’s why they changed it in the first place!

    While I wish death only on a very few select individuals, Teddy and/or The O ain’t one of them. However: Good Riddance!

    How cold-hearted of me.


  • BHD

    Weather he is in Heaven or Not is truly a matter of repentance between him and God. But everyone should remember what Christ said “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get into heaven.” I shot a couple prayers up for Sen. Kennedy and his family for peace and comfort, and thanked God for answering my prayer of removing the 60 majority at least for the time being!

  • IT Nerd

    Rumor has it that after Teddy left the scene of the accident and went to his friends house, he contacted his attorney and they began the process of moving his assets to overseas accounts so Mary Jo’s family couldn’t sue. That is why it took so long for him to return the next morning.

  • Palmetto

    Well, at least he won’t have to ruin his vacation by paying a visit to Uncle Ted.

  • The Machine

    In related news, Mary Jo Kopechne remains unavailable for comment…

  • The Machine

    As for the Kennedy newsline, “let the dead bury the dead,” said Christ.

    Cindy, be careful.

    God is not influenced by what you think regarding His existence.

    It’s a sad day, if you own liquor stock…

  • Bob

    I can’t believe THIS was in an ABC report

    “Americans were horrified when they learned that rescue workers found her body in the well of the back seat with her head held up, perhaps indicating that she had been alive for some time breathing in an air pocket.”

  • Trishmac

    RIP old chap.
    I sure hope MaryJo is waiting to greet you at the top of the stairs, and with one swift kick, she can usher you down them.

    I do have compassion for the Kennedy family, for what they have endured in the way of tragedies, and these two recent deaths of their members. And I can’t say’s I held any personal hatred for the man. But given his entire life in politics was one big liberal celebration of money power and greed, and it’s beginnings built upon lies, I feel I can have at him one last time over his escape from justice concerning that young woman who died a watery death.

  • Cindy

    I am non-religious. However, I do not believe in “heaven or hell” or a continuation of life after this one, nor do I believe in reincarnation. I don’t believe anyone will be “judged” after this life. So having said that, I will say this. I think Ted Kennedy was an unkind person and like most other rich individuals they often put themselves first and was consumed in self-identity and greed.

    However, when the mass of people become “followers” and refuse to look at “reality”, they allow this behavior that the rich and greedy are accustomed to, and even condone it and roll out the red carpet as if he (they) were king…it’s not Kennedy’s place to refuse it, just the opposite, Kennedy, will embrace anything the hopeless followers will give to their king! Wouldn’t you?!

    Kentucky Man Convicted of Brutal Rape and Murder….

    “Some conservative Internet commentators and white supremacist agitators accused the national media of reverse discrimination by failing to give the case involving white victims and black suspects the same attention paid to white-on-black hate crimes.”

    You’ve got to love how they conveniently (and for no reason to the story) group conservative commentators and white supremacist agitators together.

  • breadbasker

    Edward was the last of the original Kennedy boys and thus, the last link to “Camelot”, so , I am sure that we are going to get the CNN treatment. I’ll respect the dead for now, but his life is a walking rebuttal to respect. Kennedy was also, in my opinion, an example of term limits for Congress. Some of these Senators have more long term power than then Presidents and Edward could use that “Kennedy” card as his respect voucher. But, I will let the dead lie…..for now.

  • Bob

    As we’re talking Massachusetts… yes.

  • crowhorse

    So, do you think they are going to change the law for “Ted’s dying wish’?

  • Lazarus Long

    It looks like Teddy put a wrinkle in the “O’s” vacation plans.

  • srdb

    OMG! Ok, I’m trying to be graceful and above the pettiness. But… ::cough:: good riddance to bad rubbish. I’ll be quiet now.
