Re: Rut Roh; Senator Ted :hiccup: Kennedy Dies at age 77
" I am overwhelmed (with joy). He meets all the unborn children he is responsible for, Mary Jo Kopecky,and those departed whose misery he and his drunken clan have caused."
The above quote is just a random thought by someone commenting on the Senator's passing. Personally I think we all deserved the truth and never got it, and I say that as the father of daughters not someone who has a political agenda.
Tell you wut... if that car hada been made by one of them foreign companies, it woulda been water tight and floated to shore. Good ol' Detroit union-made iron sinks to the bottom and does in a political career.
Git 'er done!

Categories: Reid Reid: Teddy's death "going to help us"
The Reno Gazette-Journal has a sit-down with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who addresses the Ted Kennedy question in, um, an interesting way.
Q: How will U.S. Sen. (Edward) Kennedy's death affect things? A: I think it's going to help us. He hasn't been around for some time. We're going to have a new chairman of that committee, it'll be, I don't know for sure, but I think Sen. (Chris) Dodd, (D-Conn.). He has a right to take it. Either him or (U.S. Sen. Tom) Harkin, (D-Iowa), whichever one wants it can have it. I think he (Kennedy) will be a help. He's an inspiration for us. That was the issue of his life and he didn't get it done.
Nothing in here is particularly new — Kennedy will help the cause, Dodd gets to carry the banner, Kennedy's work remains undone. But the straight-shooting Reid does have a gift for saying non-controversial things in the most controversial way possible.
