I see that the continuing fawning media coverage of Ted Kennedy’s death/burial continues. First Michael, now Teddy – it’s a tough summer.Biggest laugh of the day was Obama’s truly ludicrous tribute that Teddy was “the champion of those who had none”. Like the Kopechne family? Also, I see IRA leader Gerry Adams was there to pay tribute to the great man. It is said that if one cannot say anything good about the deceased, it is best to say nothing. So I have nothing more to say.

  1. allow me to have a go david

    the coverage of this terror supporting girlfriend killer is beyond belief!

    who else gets this kind of coverage? any hes not even our fucking politician!

    i hope this ridiculous and disgusting display is properly insulted in the sundays.

    i wonder if Mrs Thatcher (a woman so great she deserves capitols) will recieve the same treament when her time comes. but i predict we will have a dozen left leaning ex communists telling us how devisive she was when they were in uni.

    today shows everyone all that is perverted in the bbc, all that is wrong onesided and frankly spooky.

    hope i covered some of your thoughts

  2. It is said that if one cannot say anything good about the deceased, it is best to say nothing.

    It is said, but it’s a mistransaltion from the Greek. The urge is to not speak wrongly of the dead.

    And when it comes to the bloated, corrupt, killer Ted Kennedy, enemy of our country, spawn of an unspeakable enemy of our country, I intend to follow the advice of the Greeks. Others can react how they like, but when we learn that Dead Ted used to knock’em dead hav’em rolling in the aisles with jokes about how he killed Mary Jo Kopechne –

    I don’t know if you know this or not, but one of his favorite topics of humor was indeed Chappaquiddick itself. And he would ask people, “have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick?” That is just the most amazing thing. It’s not that he didn’t feel remorse about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things, too.

    – anything less than the plain truth about a genuinely unpleasant individual is obsequiousness.

  3. "i wonder if Mrs Thatcher (a woman so great she deserves capitols) will recieve the same treament"

    I can only do my best.

  4. David –

    We were right. From Steyn’s piece:

    At the Huffington Post, Melissa Lafsky mused on what Mary Jo "would have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history … Who knows – maybe she’d feel it was worth it."

    Leftism truly is a mental illness.

  5. BBC 5 Live is replaying various . Tom Rivers (ABC News) has just lost any future slots. A caller’s accusation that "Ted Kennedy was a thug who supported IRA violence" was put to him, whereupon he answered "Well, yes." Whoops!

    Bye Tom.

  6. I feel uncomfortable about some of the comments being made on the subject of Ted Kennedy. Can some of the worst ones be substantiated or are they hearsay?

    Whatever else, Ted Kennedy served for 47 years in the Senate and became a prominent figure in American politics. I don’t think the marking of his death is in any way surprising in the light of his family’s history and as the brother of both a former President and a Presidential candidate.

    I think some of the commentators on this subject will surely choke on their own bile and I can’t see why his funeral should be considered ridiculous and insulting. Cannot someone find something good to say about him? If they can’t then I pity them.

    Perhaps everyone should reflect a little. After all let him who is without sin cast the first stone and nothwithstanding the tragedy of Chappaquidick and the death of the woman that resulted, I am still offended by the tone of this thread. What were the words of John Donne? – ‘No man is an island…..’

    Fair comment. That’s why I have restricted myself to saying nothing as I can think of nothing good to say about him.

    I can understand you feeling uncomfortable but wy should Chappaquidik be passed over. I think most of us are without the sin of leaving someone to die like that. It would be different if he had done time for it and shown remorse for it. If the stories are true about him enjoying jokes about it and calling his dog Spash (maybe they aren’t), then I think people need a healthy outlet to counteract the eulogising.

    Yes. There is no doubt Ted Kennedy guzzled booze all day before killing a young woman. But we can’t be overly harsh; at least it wasn’t his wife. She was elsewhere while he was killing others.

    Whatever else, Ted Kennedy served for 47 years in the Senate and became a prominent figure in American politics.

    More than half a lifetime dedicated to the confiscation of private wealth under the violence of law – as directed by the word of Ted Kennedy. More than half a lifetime dedicated to bossing others around, hectoring free people, ordering them to live to his satisfaction.

    What a despicable life this parasite led.

  10. pete
    Teddy was an obvious coward when it came to this incident. but joking about it , he was not phychotic,
    i dont think anyone could blame him for getting himself out , self preservation is number one for most people , but not raising the alarm was dreadful.

  11. Thanks David for your comment even though you can find nothing good at all to say about him.

    As for your comment Pete, I have known a lot of men who guzzled booze all day and spent a lot of their time philandering with women other than their wives. In fact isn’t it de rigeur for politicians? Fortunately for them they don’t result in tragedies like Chappaquidick when I agree that Kennedy acted out of cowardice and taking the wrong action on the spur of the moment. As for your comment regarding his wife that ‘she was elsewhere whilst he was killing others’ that is simply ridiculous and have you hard evidence to give you the right to describe him as a parasite?

    The man himself appears to have had a loved and loving family and I’m sure he has paid in spades for that moment of madness. Why can’t we be generous in spirit and let him rest in peace and reserve those hateful comments for the real murderers and terrorists in this world that abound in plenty.

  12. marlloy,

    Can’t speak for Pete but in answer to your last question, the liberal lion supported real murderers and terrorists and that is why I cannot let his passing go unmarked without comment.

  13. marlloy –

    You said it yourself, 47 years in the Senate. He never earned a cent that wasn’t confiscated from another American. He was a parasite. Now you might be sure he paid in spades for killing a woman, but I fail to see it. His surname and contacts kept him from jail. Apparently his punishment was a life in the Senate instead of an interlude in the White House – oh please, this is punishment?

    What a joke.

    He was a known danger to women (admittedly, this doesn’t mark him out in the family) who, along with fellow sociopath Chris Dodd, pioneered the "waitress sandwich". According to accounts, victims were forced to become the filling.

    Why does the sisterhood chuck victims overboard when it comes to this monster?

  14. O.K. Pete, you have the last word. I prefer to see some good in people (who are not deliberate killers) but we are all entitled to our point of view.

    Last of all, if you have time read a tribute to him from the widow of a man who was highly critical of him. It’s in The Sunday Times and the man was Michael Kelly who wrote an article criticising him in 1990.

  15. >> the liberal lion supported real murderers and terrorists<<

    That’s a lie. You’ve been called on it several times this past week, and each time were afraid even to try justify your silly claim,.

    >>He never earned a cent that wasn’t confiscated from another American. He was a parasite.<<

    Wow, just think of all the flack Lady Thatcher is going to get when she snuffs it.

    >>He was a known danger to women (<<

    Probably no more than you’ve been in your time, Pate, by your own accounts (I have no time for Pinky’s slurs).
    Not to mention Saint Mountbatten, whose passing was morned here recently with not a word of his legendary high jinks in bedrooms all over the world. Just imagine the field day you would have had if his name had been a bit Irish.

    Because, as I’ve said here several times before, this was Kennedy’s real crime. He exposed the injustices of British rule in Ireland to all Americans, the people you lot are vain and foolish enough to assume you enjoy a "special relationship" with, and this all in turn led to the Good Friday Agreement, and peace in NI.

    He was a giant, and in him you see your own pigmy status – and rage.

    Well, rage on. He sowed the seed, and it has since come to full bloom, and is not likely to disappear again anytime soon.

  16. What accounts are they, Noel? Feel free to quote me of times when forced myself on women, cheated on a wife, abandoned women to die in the middle of the night and joked about it after. Do feel free to give us chapter and verse on how I am as great a danger to women as Democrat heroes such as Kennedy or Clinton.

  17. Not saying you’re as bad as he, but that he was probably as good – or as normal in this area – as you are. Some of those stories are definitely wrong, and – apart from his abandoning the drowning woman – the rest probably are too.
    Guys generally take their chances where they can and play whatever hand they’ve been dealt – charm, good looks, money, power and influence. Kennedy was caught out and panicked.

    My point is that all these claims reek a bit too strongly of political cant. If he had the politics of a Thatcher or had kept the Japs at bay for Britain at Singapore, this and more would be forgiven him. Shouted from the rooftops about Kennedy, all hushed up about Mountbatten, as we’ve just seen.
