Sorry about being tardy, today got a little crazy 🙂 Here’s the linkage of shots for you. I would have to say the most appalling story today, posted below, was the revelation that Obama is actively seeking, and Senate Dems are actively trying to provide, a way for B. Hussein Obama to control and shut down the internet in the event he decides there’s an “emergency.”
The other stunning moment is brought to us by Teddy Friend Ed Klein. If he is to be believed (and who would lie about this) Kennedy regularly joked about ‘Chappaquiddick’ the preferred euphemism for the death of MJK. So, our first link–audio of Best Friend of Teddy, former Newsweek editor Ed Klein telling NPR radio host Diane Rehm (guest hosted by BBC reporter Katty Kay) that Chappaquiddick jokes were high on Teddy’s list of funny things. If true, this makes Kennedy not the self-obsessed Malignant Narcissist he appeared to be but a monster. And Klein, oddly, presented this bit of horror as though Teddy joking about the situation was laudable.
A note by Maynard
The report that Kennedy actually solicited Chappaquiddick jokes is indeed monstrous, and would be unbelievable if it didn’t come from a close associate. As grotesque as it is, this explains why Kennedy made a public point of acquiring a Portuguese Water Dog and naming him “Splash”. Then, just in case anybody missed the news, he distributed a book about his new pet.
How could he make such an unsubtle reference to this disgraceful event? Was he oblivious? Could he possibly have done it on purpose? That seemed impossible. But, now knowing he actually enjoyed the black humor, the dog episode makes sense. Yes, he probably did do it on purpose. Thus he revived our indignation, and became the target of a fresh round of rhetoric. It seems he got some weird kick out of taunting us and watching us react.
Krauthammer opines on Howard Dean admitting Democrats don’t have the courage to address Tort Reform as any part of so-called health care reform.
