    Hes a scumbag who routinely seeks to raise taxes, make more government dependents, ban guns, push amnesty bills that would mean millions more democrat voters(rewarded for breaking existing laws) and various other things. Other than net neutrality I cannot think of any view I hold that he shares.

    Oh, I prayed for his recovery - but that doesn't change my opinion of him.


    The Kennedys leave a wake of dead and injured when they crash through life.
    I've always wondered: is there a difference between the paranoid rantings of a truther saying that Laura Bush got away with drunken driving murder, and the same kinda of knowledge-free rant about Kopechne?

    I mean, if the first thing you have to say about this guy is that you think he got away with a murder you probably don't have any first-hand knowledge off, I start to wonder if you're a conspiracy theorist.

    No jury found him guilty of anything. And the evidence points to a likely accident. Yet so many weirdos are convinced Ted murdered this girl. Why? The answer is clear: because he's a powerful democrat. Now that he's dying of a horrible cancer, people feel free to call him a piece of shit, and cite this "crime" they are certain was committed. It's paranoid fantasy of the first order. It's political bigotry of the first order.

    I'm reminded of Rosie talking about how no steel building ever melted or whatever idiotic thing she said about 9/11. It's amazing how kooks always find these crimes on the other side of the aisle, isn't it?

    Ted is like you or me. He doesn't want to be evil. He has opinions, you have opinions, I have opinions. Al different. Ted believes in high taxation, gun control, no war in Iraq. He doesn't believe that because he hates you or this nation. He thinks these policies are good and wants to help. You guys disagree with him, but that's no reason to hate him. And indeed, calling him a vile piece of shit as he painfully loses his life is a particularly strong breed of hatred, no matter what the man has done.

    OK, you and he share few opinions. That's enough to make him scum? He's a human being, he's losing his life in an awful way, and the only kind word you can spare is that at least you agree with him on ISP regulations?

    So the effect of their idiotic and provably failed and failing policies should have no bearing on our opinions because he had the best of intentions?

    Me neither. I happen to disagree with Ted on many things, and agree with him and you insofar as I think the internet should be the same for all adult users.

    I'm just saying... it's wasn't good when DU laughed about pissing on Reagan's grave, and it's not good when CU takes this opportunity to call Ted something senseless.

    If Bush were diagnosed with Ted's illness, I would hope to see people be a bit more courteous towards him. I know that's a hopeless wish, and DU would throw a party about how the true villian of 9/11, that bastard President, was getting his due. It would be disgusting.

    That's just my reaction to people bringing up Ted just to be vulgar. Let's rise above our policy disagreements, and respect each other's basic humanity. Even if it's just to the point where we don't get called a piece of shit as we breath our last.

    Teds policies and actions effect millions many of whom did not vote for him. If it were me voting in the Senate i'd consider my duty to make as light a footprint as possible in the lives of the people. Ted's line of thinking like those in his party, lets the use the weight of government to extort those who do not vote for us and give it to those who do so we can have a lock on power.

    Tragicly most Americans are too stupid to see that it is that simple.

    When I breathe my last I'm sure I will be able to say I was not a parasite on others.

    Shannon, is gone I heard
    She's drifting out to sea
    She always loved to swim away
    Maybe she'll find an island with a shaded tree
    Just like the one in our backyard

    You'd say that it was cold hearted, proof of some kind of mental deficiency, disrespectful to a spirit of patriotic civil debate in democracy, and just crude.

    You would be right.

    Kennedy has done a great job representing his point of view. He's been influential, and his constituents love him. Even if you disagree with him, you have to admit that a major duty of his was to represent the interests of his people to the best of his ability. That's what democracy is all about in America. Kennedy has shown passion for his causes that is to be praised. Republicans can only dream of having as long a running and successful a leader in the Senate for as long with as many results. Bob Dole would be an apt comparison.

    Instead of respectfully explaining how his legislation and public views are wrong, you just call this man, who is just now entering his deathbed, dirty names.

    Like chimps flinging waste.

    This man has influences so many lives. Have you had a fed insured student loan? Minimum wage? Whether you like it or not, this man is American history. He's spent his life in public service. He has shaped your lives.

    Sir, It's a frequent word-for-word parody of DU about any sick or dying conservative.

    Shannon, ease up to speed. Some are lagging at the moment.
