Being a citizen of the Bay State I am being given a front row seat to the bullshit festival that is the the death and mourning of Senator Edward Kennedy.
I say it’s bullshit not out of pure partisanship nor even the innate anti Kennedy genetics I am stricken with. I say it out of reality.
The spin underway regards him being the lion of the Senate. What a big load that is. He was always the Liberal Lion but when you’re trying to ship someone down the river of infamy I guess the truth takes the keel not the rudder. Now being that he was indeed a guy that pursued liberal agendas even if it meant getting watered down stuff via bipartisan support you’d think his fans would champion the whole “L”word thing.
Speaking of that bipartisanship jive. Am I the only guy who is wetting his pants in laughter that nobody is putting forth his only real accomplishment ???!!! That’s right folks he was a big cahuna on No Child Left Behind. Unions and stereotypical Dems hate that beast so I don’t imagine that’ll be part of any epitaphs.’
Speaking ill of the dead is a practice done in poor taste. Well get ready to gag on this baby. Teddy was the lesser son. This truth was actually refuted by Time who called him the brother that mattered most. Papa Joe was a liquor running war profiteer megalomaniac that settled on John hitting the bigs after Joey Jr got himself killed. Fuck he almost had to settle for Robert over the sickly Teddy whence JFK got splashed in PT 109. Teddy was good for two things. Giving family loyalty and benefitting from it.
Mary Jo splashed courtesy of Teddy and the family came to the rescue. Little Willie rapes someone and Teddy steps and don’t forget the unprecedented misuse of US Navy ships to look for John” I can’t fly” Jr.
And there’s the classic rub to close. His dying wish was for the Commonwealths Democrat Party machine to reviolate state law and appoint an interim Senator thus assuring (as if it actually could go another way) the Dems keep the 60 in DC.
