”Don’t Name a Bridge After Ted”

And it’s not one of us “radical right-wingers” saying it; it’s Alec Baldwin.

Don’t name a bridge after Ted. Or the wing of a prestigious university or airport. Name a building on Capitol Hill. That is where the heart of Teddy Kennedy can be found. On a sail boat, yes. At Hyannis or anywhere with his remarkable kin. Sure. But Edward Kennedy’s legacy is the legacy of a man who lost the Presidency but lived on to become an effective and, therefore, great American political leader. That is something you and I and this country could not have lived without.

Yes, you read that correctly:

Don’t name a bridge after Ted.

Don’t you just love how fucking stupid these liberals are? It’s almost better than going to a movie!

  1. Oh, and I love the line “a man who lost the Presidency,” said in the same tone describing a man who loses his keys or loses his car in a parking lot through no fault of his own.

    A more fitting analogy would be how his presidential hopes drowned on a dark night in Chappaquiddick the same way an innocent girl drowned when a drunk Senator drove their car into a river and left her there to die a watery death.

  2. Newspeak lives. The endless and hyperbolic encomiums of this week were terrifying. The press and political world this week replicated those in any dictatorship. They perverted the truth to celebrate their reconstructionist history.
    See The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, which is about air brushing out of pictures and stories whatever didn’t suit their narrative.

  3. And it goes on and on. I cannot tell you how many people at this late date are not aware of the growth of the tea party movement and who know nothing about 9/12 in Washington. I am assuming no tv coverage will take place at all, unless the turnout is dismal. Then it will be front page news all week about how the opposition cannot drum up support. I have never gone to a rally out of my area in my life, but I must get to this one.
    I really hope hundreds of thousands do show up and become impossible to ignore. If you can go, please do.

  4. If they’re going to “name a building in Capitol Hill” after Teddy, let’s make it the Post Office building. It will be a perfect reflection of the Man: High risk, have trouble operating, it’s unreliable and uses taxpayers money.

  5. The making of an American (Liberal/Dem) hero:

    1. He was caught cheating at Harvard when he attended it. He was
    expelled twice, once for cheating on a test, and once for paying a
    classmate to cheat for him.

    2. While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly
    signed up for four years instead of two. Oops! The man can’t count
    to four! His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to
    England (a step up from bootlegging liquor into the US from Canada
    during prohibition), pulled the necessary strings to have his
    enlistment shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in
    Europe, not Korea , where a war was raging; No preferential
    treatment for him! (like he charged that President Bush received).

    3. Kennedy was assigned to Paris , never advanced beyond the rank
    of Private, and returned to Harvard upon being discharged. Imagine a
    person of his “education” NEVER advancing past the rank of Private!

    4. While attending law school at the University of Virginia, he
    was cited for reckless driving four times, including once when he was
    clocked driving 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood with
    his headlights off after dark. Yet his Virginia driver’s license was
    never revoked. Coincidentally, he passed the bar exam in 1959.
    Amazing!

    5. In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash, and
    hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital
    at the time he was admitted had shown he was legally intoxicated. The
    results of those tests remained a “state secret” until in the 1980’s
    when the report was unsealed. Didn’t hear about that from the
    unbiased media, did we?

    6. On July 19, 1969, Kennedy attended a party on Chappaquiddick
    Island in Massachusetts . At about 11:00 PM, he borrowed his
    chauffeur’s keys to his Oldsmobile limousine, and offered to give a
    ride home to Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker. Leaving the island
    via an unlit bridge with no guard rail, Kennedy steered the car off
    the bridge, flipped, and into Poucha Pond.

    7. He swam to shore and walked back to the party, passing several
    houses and a fire station. Two friends then returned with him to the
    scene of the accident. According to their later testimony, they told
    him what he already knew – that he was required by law to immediately
    report the accident to the authorities. Instead Kennedy made his way
    to his hotel, called his lawyer, and went to sleep. Kennedy called
    the police the next morning and by then the wreck had already been
    discovered. Before dying, Kopechne had scratched at the upholstered
    floor above her head in the upside-down car.

    The Kennedy family began “calling in favors”, ensuring that any
    inquiry would be contained. Her corpse was whisked out-of-state to
    her family, before an autopsy could be conducted. Further details are
    uncertain, but after the accident Kennedy says he repeatedly dove
    under the water trying to rescue20Kopechne and he didn’t call police
    because he
    was in a state of shock. It is widely assumed Kennedy was drunk, and
    he held off calling police in hopes that his family could fix the
    problem overnight. Since the accident, Kennedy’s “political enemies”
    have referred to him as the distinguished Senator from Chappaquiddick.
    He pled guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a
    SUSPENDED SENTENCE OF TWO MONTHS. Kopechne’s family received a small
    payout from the Kennedy’s insurance policy, and never sued. There was
    later an effort to have her body exhumed and autopsied, but her
    family successfully fought against this in court, and Kennedy’s
    family paid their attorney’s bills… a “token of friendship”?

    8. Kennedy has held his Senate seat for more than forty years, but
    considering his longevity, his accomplishments seem scant. He
    authored or argued for legislation that ensured a variety of civil
    rights, increased the minimum wage in 1981, made access to health care
    easier for the indigent, and funded Meals on Wheels for fixed-income
    seniors and is widely held as the “standard-bearer for liberalism”. In
    his very first Senate roll, he was the floor manager for the bill that
    turned U.S. immigration policy upside down and opened the floodgate
    for immigrants from third world countries.

    9. Since that time, he has been the prime instigator and author of
    every expansion of an increase in immigration, up to and including the
    latest attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Not to mention the
    pious grilling he gave the last two Supreme Court nominees, as if he
    was the standard bearer for the nation in matters of “what’s right”.
    What a pompous ass!

    10. He is known around Washington as a public drunk, loud,
    boisterous and very disrespectful to ladies. JERK is a better
    description than “great American”. “A blonde in every pond” is his
    motto.

  6. Alec Baldwin epitomizes why the Hollywood crowd is absolutely unworthy of respect. He’s just one example among MANY, but man, what a prick!
