......Ted Kennedy. I offer my condolences to his surviving family and friends.
But let's be honest about a well-known public figure. When he was a 37 year old, married, U.S. Senator, he was responsible for a car accident where he left a young woman behind to suffocate at the bottom of a pond while he saved himself and went to sleep off a huge drunken hangover.
If he had any class or true remorse, Ted Kennedy would have withdrawn from his public life as a senator. He would have spent the rest of his life doing meaningful volunteer work.
But no , Ted Kennedy craved the spotlight and power so he stayed in the senate. He was hypocritical as well. For example, in 1974, Ted Kennedy berated Prez Ford for pardoning Nixon. Kennedy asked if there were two types of justice in America and one was reserved for the connected and powerful! [did he actually say this with a straight face].
I think it is outrageously funny when his kids say "Dad worked so hard". What did a fat drunk know about hard work? IMO, Ted Kennedy was a huge embarrsassment to most thinking Irish-Americans, Catholics and the hard-working taxpayers of America.
I hope Massachusetts replaces Kennedy with a senator who has actually held a real job in their life. There are enough limousine liberals in Congress already. We don't need anymore like Ted Kennedy.
