How Dare This Country Persecute Ted Kennedy Again

I can't believe that the U.S. has once again persecuted Ted Kennedy. As his brothers did before him, Ted Kennedy has given his life to public service. Everything he does is to help other people, the man could not hurt a fly and has never done anything wrong. Yet, this country is constantly picking on him or his family--like that poor William Kennedy Smith.

What is the latest example of Kennedy bashing? Easy, the Senate's total disregard of Ted Kennedy's feelings on the confirmation of John Roberts. Everyone knew that Ted didn't like Roberts and that he voted against him and yet other Senators still voted for Roberts???? Excuse me, but did those other Senators have a brother who was President? Did they have two brothers who were assassinated? Unless the answer to those questions is yes then I suggest the next time Ted Kennedy takes a position on something that they shut up and vote with him. Isn't that the least we owe this man and his family?

er, BlueBabe, here we go again...a bit of a fact regarding your hero's alleged lack of respect by his peers - and from no less a source than the Washington Post:

"On the evening of July 19, 1969, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts drove his Oldsmobile off a wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, drowning his passenger, a young campaign worker named Mary Jo Kopechne. The senator left the scene of the accident, did not report it to the police for many hours, and according to some accounts considered concocting an alibi for himself in the interim.

"At the time, Kennedy managed to escape severe legal and political consequences for his actions thanks to his family's connections (which helped to contain the inquest and grand jury) and to a nationally televised "Checkers"-like speech broadcast a week after the accident. But virtually no journalist who has closely examined the evidence fully believes Kennedy's story, and almost 30 years later, the tragedy still trails the senator, with aggressive press investigations revived in five-year anniversary intervals.

poor little BlueBabe...hitching her horse to someone whose political career drowned with an innocent secretary, Mary Jo Kopechne, back in '69...

The conspiracy theories concerning Bobby and JFK were hardly "theories". They're dead, right?

For reasons unkown they decided to frame Teddy instead of kill him. Either way, it robbed us what what would have been the greatest president (other than if McGovern had won).

Here's your chance to educate me, BlueBabe.

From what source(s) does this information of yours come?

Who are "they"?

Why bring up Bobby and Jack, when I was talking about Ted (D-Chivas)?

Make me see your truths, BlueBabe...are you up to it?

Everyone knows who "they" are and so do you. Who do you think put Roberts on the Spreme Court?

Greedy corportations.

If I remember correctly, those senators are there to represent THE PEOPLE. They should vote the way the people they represent want them to vote. They aren't expected to vote the same way as some no good, overweight, riding on his brothers coat tails, has been, idiot votes.

Perhaps Teddy still has some suffering to do. To, er, refine his soul and stuff like that.

He's on the way to becoming a Ghandi. A non-vegetarian one.

Thanks for asking. Thank Goddess for unionized firefighters. They put it out before it came south of the 101.

riding on his brothers

I think Teddy was the smartest, most capable, and most liberal of the lot.

He's on the way to becoming a Ghandi.

That is a very good analogy. They have both done so much for their people.

That wasn't an expression of concern.

And there is no such thing as a good union.

You barking moonbat.

You're joking right?

How about the Teamsters? The Dock Workers? Think of how the UAW has helped make American car manufacturers more competitive. Same for steel workers.

Are you insane or just messing with people? I can't imagine anyone being so dumb as to believe this crap you claim to believe, then again I've never been to the deep south. If your just messing with people then hahaha because you actually have them responding, if your nuts then I suggest you take a ride in uncle Teds car, you might want to count the drinks he's had first.

You my friend are a regionalist--an unacceptable form of bias. While I'm not from the south, I would never hold it against anyone any more than I would hold their size, weight, ethnicity, religon, lack of religon, gender, sexual preference, schooling, intelligence level, social strata, age, etc., etc. against them.

I happen to be from Topanga Canyon, California. A very cool community of artists and activists.
