A tribute to the late Senator Ted Kennedy, who killed a woman with his car and let her die in a slow, torturous watery tomb as his pickled #ss wandered up and down the road, pondering his political future. Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment. Then again, so was Kennedrunk. Anywho, Teddy K also sexually accosted a waitress with Chris Dodd (Google “waitress sandwich Dodd Kennedy” if you don’t know).
Bill Clinton, a womanizing lout who raped Juanita Broaddrick.
Yet it’s Mitt Romney and the Republicans who have declared a “war on women”? Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore.
Harry Reid was asked who the greatest living Americans are. His answer? Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd, neither of whom were available for comment. Because they’ve assumed room temperature.
I’m not even touching the fact that TK was a killer and Sheets was a Klan bigwig. I’m still hung up on the fact that Reid thinks the two greatest living Americans are dudes who aren’t even…well, living.
Ted Kennedy was unavailable for comment.
Ted Kennedy was unavailable for comment. Patches, however, was available for this nugget:
CNSNews.com: “What is your reaction to the [Mexican] president criticizing the Arizona law?”
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.): “Well he’s right on. I mean, it violates the spirit of our own Constitution. So, you know, we had a tragic history in this country. The most shameful parts of our history were when we had our slave trade, when we, when we, the Trail of Tears — what we did to our Native Americans. And, you know, the proudest moments in our history are when we had the Civil Rights Act, when we moved forward on integration and expanding the opportunities for all of our citizens. So, this idea of, you know, racial profiling, takes us backwards and really goes to the worst character of our nation and it’s, it’s demeaning to our country that we would move in that direction. It’s beneath us as a people.”
Slave trade? Trail of Tears? Seriously, border security and enforcement of federal immigration law is akin to slave trade and the Trail of Tears? Seriously?
I suppose it’s belaboring the point to mention, yet again, that the AZ immigration law explicitly forbids racial profiling. But Patches is simply doing what B.O., Nappy Napolitano, Holder, and other Obamatons are doing: popping off about a law they haven’t ever read. That’s yet additional proof that liberals are impervious to facts.
Well, this is Ted Kennedrunk’s seat we’re talking about here, right? Details:
Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said THIS about Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat…“Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?”
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Is there a such thing as a good Chappaquiddick joke? Apparently Teddy K thought so. I guess you had to be there. Oh wait…he was there.
Possibly the only thing sicker than that is the opinion of a moonbat blog (HuffPo) post that MJK wouldn’t have minded being a martyr for the cause of St. Teddy’s Senate career. Snippet:
We don’t know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she’d have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don’t know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.
Still, ignorance doesn’t preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn’t automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted’s death, and what she’d have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.
Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.
Un. Friggin’. Believable.
It never ceases to amaze me that liberals, especially liberal women, who look to Democrats to vindicate their feminist ideas are willing to put up with sexual abuse, offer themselves up sexually or even think women might be happy to die for them.
This is their idea of what political heroes should be? Sick stuff.
Feel free to join me in not eulogizing Teddy K.
Let’s take a peek at the events that have transpired since Ted Kennedy died yesterday, shall we?
Remember the similarly flattering MSM memories last year when Jesse Helm died? Me neither. Nope…no liberal media bias!
Chris Matthews got another thrill down his leg by declaring that (a) health care protestors at the town hall are basically Lee Harvey Oswalds; and (b) Obama is now the last remaining Kennedy brother. Oswald was a commie…just sayin’. But if B.O. is the last Kennedy brother, hopefully Michelle won’t be letting Barry drive a convertible over a bridge anytime soon, especially this week at Marxist’s Vineyard.
Peloco and her minions are now saying we should totally wreck the economy via ObamaCare for ol’ Teddy’s sake.
Recently Rush predicted that when Kennedy died, there would be an effort to rename the health care proposal after ol’ TK. The moonbatosphere went nuts on Rush. Yesterday, Robert Byrd (D-KKK) took off his white sheet robe long enough to declare that the health care proposal should be named after ol’ TK.
The MSM is running stories trying to gin up support for ObamaCare by linking it to Ted Kennedy, hoping that a wave of sympathy will turn into support. CBS’ Douglas Brinkley even called him a “martyr” for ObamaCare. Nope…no liberal media bias!
A talk radio station in The People’s Republic of Taxachussets yesterday suspended their usual conservative talk show lineup in order to replace it with liberal-only shows to wax eloquent about TK. As luck would have it, unflattering calls were not allowed on the air.
Remember the leftist pep rally that was the Paul Wellstone funeral in 2002? The Dems suffered for it. Anyone wanna be that they don’t learn too well?
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Look, I do not rejoice in his passing, nor do I take any kind of pleasure in his death. His family and friends are grieving, and I would be a poor excuse of a Christian if I were pleased by this. I am not. I’m not like the moonbats, who got giddy when Reagan and Tony Snow (among others) died. My heart is not black like theirs.
I will not, though, join in this chorus of waxing eloquent about the man’s life. He got away with killing a woman, if for no other reason than he was a Kennedy. My disdain for that miscarriage of justice has nothing to do with his politics (with which I obviously disagreed, 100% of the time). I’m not going to sing the praises of a man who allowed a woman to die a slow, watery death while he pondered the impact on his political career.
My heart goes out to his friends and family.
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
WMD Maker reminded me that today marks the 39th anniversary of Ted Kennedrunk getting away with vehicular manslaughter (and worse).
Mary Ko Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Check this out, from Hot Air TV. It’s a video clip of Jason Materra from the conservative group Young America’s Foundation, nailing the pickled MA Senator on why he defends the estate tax…when he and his clan fight like hell to get around paying it themselves! “Good enough for me, but not for thee!”
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Is there anything that the medical community can’t discover? From the Hartford Courant:
Having a large gut in midlife increases the chance of dementia in old age, according to new research published Wednesday that suggests that abdominal fat is a bigger risk factor than family history.
Apparently, having a spare tire also increases the risk of commiting vehicular manslaughter while DUI, as well as pumping out lie-based mockumentaries. Who knew?
Here’s the video clip of the Bloviating Brandy-basted Blowhard from Boston. Rumor has it that while searching for a song for his grand display of Hispandering, Kennedrunk looked into “Tequila”, “José Cuervo”, and “Two Piña Coladas”, but was denied.
If there’s ever a classic example of how feminists, like other leftards, “feel, not think”, this would be it:
Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few…
And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not “this” one)…
This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation – to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.” (As opposed to voting for the first woman who “knows what’s best for us”? – Ed.)
That’s right, my friends. You can be a grotesque cretin like Kennedy, but if you pay your “indulgence fee” by voting for The Sister in the race, all is well among the “women” (and I use that term loosely) who look out for “women’s rights”! That must explain why the NAGs still like Bubba.
trolls “helpful editors” here at the Crush Liberalism Objective World News Service (CLOWNS) suggested the womynists add the following bold lines, but the wild-eyed vagitarians weren’t having it:
Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act; ignored the fact that he and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) forced themselves onto a waitress at La Brasserie in order to make a “waitress sandwich”; and completely and collectively erased the memory of the murder of Mary Jo Kopechne by leaving her to die a slow watery death while he paced the roadside in a drunken stupor to ponder the ramifications on his political career…to name a few.
Damn feminutjob editors!
Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore!
According to the NYT, Ted Kennedrunk is going to throw his ample weight behind Osamabama. This should help Obama curry favor with that coveted “drunken murdering Marxist buffoon” segment of the electorate. Sought for her take on Sen. Pickled Liver’s endorsement, Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
It’s hard to believe that Dewars-addled brain of his can remember anything after half a century of abuse. From his fawning admirers at the NYT:
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the most prominent surviving member of the Kennedy family, has agreed to sell his memoirs for an advance of more than $8 million, people with knowledge of the negotiations say.
After a six-day auction that concluded Nov. 19, Twelve, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing, bought world rights for the autobiography. Before the deal can be completed, Mr. Kennedy must clear his publishing contract with the Senate Ethics Committee.
Jonathan Karp, publisher and editor in chief of Twelve, said he hoped to publish the book in the fall of 2010. Mr. Kennedy is “walking, talking history,” (or more accurately, “stumbling, staggering history”! – Ed.) Mr. Karp said, “and there’s no limit to what he can talk about with authority and distinctive personal perspective.”
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
No surprise there. However, his reason is ironic:
President Bush sought to save Michael Mukasey’s troubled nomination for attorney general Thursday, defending the retired judge’s refusal to say whether he considers waterboarding torture and warning of a leaderless Justice Department if Democrats do not confirm him.
“If the Senate Judiciary Committee were to block Judge Mukasey on these grounds, they would set a new standard for confirmation that could not be met by any responsible nominee for attorney general,” Bush said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
Despite that prospect, more Senate Democrats announced their opposition to Mukasey. Most cited his refusal to say whether waterboarding, an interrogation technique that uses the threat of drowning to elicit answers, amounts to torture and thus is illegal under constitutional, domestic and international law.
The Senate Judiciary Committee plans a test vote Tuesday on the nomination. Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., became the fourth of 10 Democrats on the 19-member committee to say he will vote against advancing the nomination to the full Senate.
Kennedy said Mukasey’s unwillingness to give a definitive answer on the torture question increased the chances that the technique could be used against U.S. troops.
Kennedy opposes simulated drowning for terrorists, but I’m assuming he would have no problem actually drowning a terrorist. Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Old Soldier reminded me of this yesterday, so my apologies for being a day late (story of my life, huh?). Yesterday was the 38th anniversary of Chappaquiddick, where, as you all know, Ted Kennedrunk killed a woman in his car by allowing her to drown while he wandered up the road and pondered the political ramifications of his actions. Full details here, if you can stomach it.
I do not ever wish physical harm on an American politician simply because they are ideological opposites. As much as I detest Reid, Pelosi, et al, I do not wish ill upon them. Having said that, God forgive me but I find myself wishing ill on Ted Kennedrunk every time that pickled murderous windbag opens his ample cakehole and bloviates about anybody being morally bankrupt liars! The fact that many on the left gravitate towards this cretin is proof positive of the inherent depravity of those people.
You abso-freakin’-lutely must see the video on Hot Air of Arlen Sphincter droning on about the “silent majority”. You know, those verbal 14% who supported the now-defunct shamnesty bill? Yeah, that “majority”. Anywho, from Hot Air:
Video: The people at my gym told me they liked the bill, says Specter
Never mind those polls. What about the “silent majority” comprised of his gardener, the voices in his head, and the guy he works out next to on the elliptical machine at the local Bally’s in Philly?
This is why I scoff at threats that we’re going to bounce those who voted for amnesty with primary challenges. If we had any power to get rid of incumbents, don’t you think we would have sent this tool packing decades ago?
Sphincter may be somewhat immune from being deposed (though Toomey gave him a good run in the GOP primary a couple of years ago), and alas, likely so is Lott, but I firmly believe that others like Grahamnesty, Martinez, and Gregg are ripe for a challenge. Sam Brownback (now being referred to as “Switchback“) “Kerry-ed” his vote, voting “Yes” for cloture then reversing course and changing it to “No” afterwards.
By the way, if you wanna see Ted Kennedrunk blow a gasket on the Senate floor, here’s a link (scroll down to the video to play it).
It’s been eight weeks since Time magazine redesigned itself, and part of that refurbishment is handing over the “Ten Questions” interview inquiries to the readers instead of Time’s reporters. In the June 11 edition, Time’s interviewee was Rep. Tom Tancredo, a presidential contender and one of the nation’s leading opponents of illegal immigration. Among the questions Time selected for Tancredo was a whopper from Ubaldo Padilla of Oroville, California: “Why do you hate Mexicans?” It wasn’t the only snotty question Time picked. There was also James Smith of Phoenix, who asked: “I recently found out my family came from Holland without permission in the 1600s. Should we be sent back?”
Since Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel introduced the new format in the March 26 edition, there haven’t been any Democrats interviewed. But in the March 12 edition, Time’s Massimo Calabresi had ten (mostly softball) questions for Ted Kennedy, one of the nation’s leading advocates of an amnesty for illegal immigrants. No one at Time asked him about immigration and why he supposedly hated Americans. Instead, Calabresi’s list of questions included these soft touches:
— Are you the only Senator to keep dogs in your offices?
— Democrats have the country with them against the war in Iraq but aren’t acting to end it. Why?
— Do you intend to endorse one of the Democrats running for President?
— It’s easy to pick up a newspaper and see some comparison between your brothers and Barack Obama. Is there any validity to that comparison?
— You know Mitt Romney pretty well.
— Your long-sought minimum-wage bill is stuck in conference, thanks to a debate on the size of small-business tax breaks. What’s going on?
— Some on the left wing of the Democratic Party would like to see No Child Left Behind done away with. Are you going to deliver reauthorization this year?
— You just celebrated your 75th birthday. Or rather the celebrations are ongoing.
— You had a costume party. Who did you go as? (Captain Nemo? Aquaman? Jacques Cousteau, perhaps> – Ed.)
Since the 2006 midterm elections, Time’s also offered Ten Questions to a pile of liberals: Al Gore, Rep. Charlie Rangel, newly elected Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, and Gore Vidal. None of them were painted as bigots by Time’s selected staff interviewers.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
Ted Kennedy On Immigration
1965: “The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”
1986: “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”
2007: “Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system.” (With amnesty, like the one from 21 years earlier that he swore would never be brought forward again! – Ed.)
From Neal Boortz:
The Democrats class warfare minimum wage increased is now being debated in the Senate .. and Ted Kennedy is about to have a stroke. Did you hear this pathetic man screaming at the Republicans? “What is it about it (the minimum wage) that drives you Republicans crazy? What is it about working men and women that you find so offensive?”
Well … of course .. most of you will recognize this as cheap demagoguery. There are two faulty premises to Kennedy’s question:
1. The working wage has some meaningful connection to “working” men and women.
2. Republicans are offended by working men and women.
Both premises are false.
Let’s deal with this “working men and women” line first. This rhetorical nonsense is now a basic part of the left wing class warfare arsenal. The goal here is to foster the idea that the more money you make the less you work. The reality is that there we have two resources we can use to make money, physical labor and mental labor. Most of us use a combination of the two. The ugly little fact is that, generally speaking, and professional athletes aside, the more of your mind you use the more money you will make, and the more of your muscle you use the less money you’ll make.
Here’s another fact. The more money you make, the more likely it is that you will vote Republican. The less money you make, the more likely you will vote Democrat. Bring this all together and you’ll soon figure out that the more you use physical labor to earn money, the more likely it is you will vote Democrat.
Knowing that almost all Americans value the concept of hard work, the Democrats have worked to promote the concept that the only real work that physical labor. Working with your mind — managing investments, for instance — just isn’t work. Therefore the only real working people out there are those who work with their hands instead of their brains …. or those more likely to vote Democrat. Once you’ve made this absurd concept a reality you have created a wonderful class warfare weapon. If you’re smarter than the average bear, and if you realize that it is not the role of government to set wages, you then become an enemy of “working men and women.”
This, then, enables Ted Kennedy’s demagoguery. He first asks what it is about the minimum wage that, as he says, drives Republicans so crazy. Simple. First — there are still a few Republicans out there who believe that in a free market economy it is not the role of government to set wages. If the government can set a minimum wage, what is to stop the government from setting a maximum wage? If the government can set a minimum wage, then why can’t the government set a minimum wage based on family size? Why can’t the Imperial Federal Government of the United States just pass a law saying that the minimum wage goes up by $2.00 per hour for every child born to the worker? Once you allow the government to have a say in establishing the value of labor … the sky is the limit. Where does it stop?
Secondly … Republicans realize that less than 20% of the people in this country who earn the minimum wage live in families that are anywhere near or below the poverty level. Over six out of ten people who begin work at the minimum wage have received their first raise within the first year. Only 15% of minimum wage workers are still receiving the minimum wage after three years on their job. What percentage of the full time work force is earning just the minimum wage? Around 1 percent.
So .. to answer Kennedy’s screaming questions: The minimum wage drives (some) Republicans crazy because there is absolutely nothing in our Constitution that allows the government to set wages, and the minimum wage is used by Democrats as nothing more than a tool of class warfare. Around one percent of full-time workers earn the minimum wage, and most of them are part of families that are well above the poverty line. It just isn’t an issue. Knowing Republicans are also upset because they know that the Democrats push for the minimum wage increases are just another way of telling unions “thanks for your support.”
And to answer Kennedy’s second question, there is nothing about “working men and women” that Republicans find offensive. What they do find offensive is the Democrat use of the phrase “working people” as a tool of class warfare through their attempts to convince lower income Americans that those who make more than they do aren’t really working for the money they earn.
Considering that Ted Kennedrunk was born with a silver brandy sniffer in his mouth, one wonders if through his fermented stupor, he sees the irony of bashing those he does not consider to be “working people”?
By the way, for those of you who haven’t been here long, please click here to read why Democrats really want to raise minimum wage. Hint: unions are clamoring for it, despite the fact that union workers don’t make anything NEAR minimum wage.
