    Ted

    I would have though there would have been some mention of Ted's demise today.... ok, I'll go first...







    And now I can finally put this one away.

    Can't say I'm sad. I guess growing up and living a long time in MA and having that ass clown as my senator made me insensitive. Plus the fact that so many people think the Kennedy's are this great family when in reality, they are a bunch of pompous asses that do things they're not supposed to (drugs, drinking and driving, skiing football, flying a plane on instruments when you're not qualified to do so, etc.), get killed or get people killed, then all you hear is "Kennedy Curse".

    The best part about it is now with Kennedy's death, the Senate Republicans have the ability to filibuster the the health care legislation and prevent a vote until his replacement is elected in 5 months!

    I'm already getting warning emails about Congressional Leaders "manipulating Ted Kennedy's death to create support for a “legacy” health care bill ".

    Even NPR is suggesting that's going to happen. And its looking like MA is going to allow the governor to appoint his successor - probably in September some time.

    Here's a lesson for the kids... as long as your rich and powerful you can be the biggest do-nothing scum bag in the world and it will all be over looked when you die.

    And yet we're surprised when other people don't want to accept the consequences for their actions.

    Thank you for the Ted tribute. It was really honest and heart warming.

    +1 Todd...If you have the money, you can do whatever you want and damn the consequences (there won't be any). I haven't shed any tears over this one. You can be sure that the Dems will put enough pressure on the Mass. Governor to appoint someone to fill the seat BEFORE any vote comes up on health care. Obama will see that it gets done quickly.

    We even heard of the scumbag as far west as Arizona.

    I always thought it was far to cold in Massachusits for the worthless bastard. I expect he is finaly warming up. RIH

    I guess he did have a purpose. Without a bad person to compare with you wouldn't know what a good person was like.

    He's dead and gone. Maybe we should just let it go. After all, it's just water under the bridge now!




    And yes, I ripped that off from some site I saw the other day.

    It's bits like this one from Time that get on my nerves:

    Kinda like the saying "There are no Atheists in a fox hole". He knew he was on his way out and was trying to hedge his bets. He'll get what's coming to him.

    +1 the thanks for the heart warming Ted tribute but it was "water under the bridge" that almost made me piddle.

    Karma or devine smack down, looks like Teddy finally ran into something his or other peoples influence couldnt get him out of. I'm over it.
