THIS IS A PERSONAL RANT;FEEL FREE TO COMMENT;OR NOT
On Aug.25,2009 Edward M. Kennedy went to his just reward.
He now resides in the 10th circle of hell.
He was a drunken womanizer who lived off his dead brothers’ memory for 40 years.
He claimed to champion education,but was vehemently opposed to vouchers for poor kids to have a chance at a quality education.
He was famous,along with Chris Dodd for ‘waitress sandwiches’ at LaBrasserie in D.C.
In 1969,he left a party with his conquest for the evening,a young campaign worker named Mary Jo Kopechne.
In a drunken stupor,he ran his car off the bridge into the Chappaquiddick River.Scrambling to shore,he left Mary Jo to gasp her last breath.
He made it home and waited 12 hours to sober up and concoct a story before notifying authorities.
Being a Kennedy in Massachusetts carries near-deity status.No charges were filed.
George W. Bush invited him to write an education bill,which he loudly blamed the president for since there wasn’t enough money for him.
I have considered,and I am of the belief that the spirit of co-operation in Washington started to disintegrate when he savagely attacked Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.He wailed about women being relegated to back-alley abortions with coat hangers if Bork were to gain a seat.
That was the beginning of my revulsion with this festering boil.
He was referred to as the ‘Lion of the Senate.’
All he did was be lucky enough to be born into a family enriched by criminal activities and having a politically connected father.
I TAKE LITTLE JOY IN ANYONE’S DEATH,BUT IN THIS CASE THE WORLD IS BETTER OFF.
