Ted Kennedy Dies; Mary Jo Kopechne Could Not Be Reached for Comment
Just over forty years after coldly and deliberately deciding that his political career was more important than a young woman's life, Ted Kennedy has finally gone to his eternal "reward". (Hint: he just thought global "warming" was bad.) There is a sense in which I feel sorry for him. Teddy's ruthless and immoral father produced offspring who followed his footsteps all too well. But personal responsibility demands more than blaming dad.
In a more just world, Kennedy would have spent at least years if not decades in jail for his crimes rather than being firmly entrenched in the Senate. I'm not glad he's dead. I don't rejoice in the death of the wicked. But I am glad he will never spend another of my dollars on one of his insane follies. I am glad he will never promote the murder of another unborn and innocent child. I am glad he will never lie about another judge like Robert Bork. I am glad he won't be spewing his liberal twaddle any more. Good riddance.
