Ted Kennedy is Dead

I note the passing of Ted Kennedy. I'm with Michelle on this one in just noting the event. I'm not about to lionize the man because and the MSM will certainly do that ad nauseum. I'm not sure if we'll have the 24/7 coverage and memorials like we did with Michael Jackson, but they will certainly celebrate his life endlessly.

I, instead, will remember Mary Jo Kopechne who died of asphyxiation in Ted Kennedy's car while he struggled to figure out how to beat the charge of vehicular manslaughter. Carol, at No Sheeples Here! has a proper obituary for Mr. Kennedy, as does Robert Stacy McCain. There are plenty of links at Memeorandum . You won't find any celebrations of his life on this blog.

End of an era, indeed.

My first thought was, "Does this break the filibuster-proof majority?"

If the old drunken bastard was as wonderful as the Left is making him out to be, he wouldn't have had 49 more years of life than Mary Jo Kopenchne.

This is terrible. Did I miss something? She was probably rapped and then left to drown and die. The Kennedys are notorious for coming such crimes. Hate to say it, but it’s true.
