Senator Edward Kennedy, 77, dies

11 mins ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a major figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, died late on Tuesday, CNN said. He was 77.

One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008.

Known as "Teddy," he was the brother of President John Kennedy, assassinated in 1963, Senator Robert Kennedy, fatally shot while campaigning for the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination, and Joe Kennedy, a pilot killed in World War Two.

Good riddance to bad garbage.

There were two Ted Kennedys. The liberal standard bearer who served in the Senate and the Ted Kennedy you met one on one. Ted Kennedy was a man who always served his constituents well. The man truly believed in his liberal ideology and while I disagreed with that, I know two people who were well served by him when they went to him for help. If you got a hold of him, he was always willing to help.

Sorry, but letting Mary Joe drown in his car and having nothing happen to him because he was a Kennedy negates any good this scumbag ever did in his life....burn in hell Teddy, burn in fucking hell.

Let's not forget he ruined Joan, his ex wife's, life. Wonder if he received governmental end of life counseling that he proposed for us and suicide pills or was that a decision made by the family and his priest. Just curious.

Instead we should act human beings, and show our proper respects for the dead at this time.

Critism can come in a few days, until then we should be civil.

I always called him an asshole when he was living and I don't see any reason to stop now just because the SOB kicked the bucket.

His tentacles from the dead will give fodder in passing this legislation which if passed will do immeasurable harm to the country. Just wait and see this BS coming down the pike.

He was a cancer on this state, and I'm glad he's dead.. I have to live with his liberal policies and my children have to grow up in this shitty state, so him getting his grubby dick beaters off of it is welcome news to me... Plus, the whole time this drunk has been running around with cancer in his brain, we've been a senator short.. Depending on who his replacement is, this may not have been a bad thing, but maybe it was.. They weren't going to replace his fat ass as long as he was alive, even though is brain was broken, so we can finally move on.

You know, there's justified outrage, and then there's outrage just for the sake of being an asshole, and when a man allows a girl to die-actually causes her death because he's drunken piece of shit, and then goes on to be revered by adoring Liberal morons his entire career, I think my outrage is justified.. He should have gone to prison, but instead he went to the Senate to serve a long and "successful" career in making Massachusetts the shit hole of the country with ridiculous taxes and more laws and nanny-state rules than you can shake a stick at.. He campaigned and somehow pulled off acquiring funding from the entire U.S. for the Big Dig, which was a Massachusetts roads project that people in Minnesota and Montana and every other state are paying for with tax money... He was a drunk piece of crap that exibited a sense of entitlement and holier than tou attitude that was disgusting.

When the DUmmies start bashing a Republican who dies, I might condemn it was one or two lines because it will undoubtedly be unjustified, but I don't foresee dwelling on it, because I think the Liberal mind is tainted by the sick education institutions and Liberal media.. I certainly won't threaten to punch the next person that says something negative about the deceased..

Well, you've never once seen me post anything from the DU, as I don't go over there. I am merely expressing my feelings about a man whom I've despised since following politics dying.. And he wasn't some distant person that I despised from afar-he was a man who made policies and wrote legislation for the state I live in and my children, as well.. Ted Kennedy never met a tax he didn't like, and nor a crimigrant... The Kennedy legacy is a stain on this state, and I'm glad it looks like it's finally coming to an end. They have for too long acted like that Senate seat was an entitlement.

The man is responsible for the death of a young woman, so I think that peoples' emotions are justified.. The difference between this and the hateful things the DUmmies will say about a Conservative who would likely not be guilty of anything more than not agreeing with them is pretty substantial.. I would be offended by someone celebrating the death of someone who merely had ideals they weren't aligned with, but if we had a drunken murderer in our camp, I couldn't really defend him in his death the way the Liberals are defending Kennedy..

I never said that there was a comparison. I never implied that they were the same thing. I just said that the libs feel just as strongly about Regan as we do about Kennedy. They feel they are justified with their aberrant behavior because they feel strongly about it. I say that the behavior is sickening no matter who is doing it and the justification used by both sides is simply lame and both sides use the exact same justification...

It's the first time in over 40 years that Massachusetts isn't represented by a Kennedy. What a glorious day in that respect, Kennedy's death aside. Just to be rid of the Kennedy name is wonderful! I just hope they don't put his wife in the seat just to carry on the legacy.. They do seem to think they own that seat..

If poor Teddy would have had universal government paid health care would he be alive today?

Heh,heh.:D

I don't usually do grave dancing but there is an exception to everything. Like Shannon and others have said, dear "Teddy" the "Lion of the Senate" got himself plastered and drove off a bridge. Now that would have been fine had it not been for Mary Jo.

The POS used his family name and money to beat a murder wrap. And the morons
in MA kept voting him in. He was scum and always will be in my eyes. All the
pretty TV specials aren't going to change that.

Good night, Senator.

While I found your politics contemptible, I do believe on some level that you at least thought you were doing the right thing most of the time. If there's an afterlife, may you find peace there.

To those of you here that are grave-dancing, I'll remind you of this thread the next time a political figure you like dies and DU is doing what you are.

Out of all the DUmp heroes who've died over the years, Kennedy was the slimiest, sleeziest and more corrupt. Like I said, I'm willing to give people some leeway on this one, especially considering how the DUmp monkeys act when any conservative dies.

For five months maybe, but do you honestly believe the dumbasses in Mass will vote for a republican? :D

In this day and age, who knows. Obama and the congressional Democrats are destroying themselves.

I think this puts it nicely. I hope people read it and consider it.

The U.S. Senator from Massachusetts succumbed to brain cancer at the age of 77 tonight. Put aside your ideological differences for an appropriate moment and mark this passing with solemnity.



There is a time and place for political analysis and criticism. Not now.



Yes, there will be a nauseating excess of MSM hagiographies and lionizations — and crass calls to pass the health care takeover to memorialize his death.


That’s no excuse to demonstrate the same lack of restraint in the other direction. Not now.
