RIP Mr. Kennedy. Hopefully the causes you championed won't die with you.

I seriously doubt that purgatory has enough room for all the excess baggage that Mr. Kennedy has brought with him. I would like to know what he revealed in his waning days. He clearly knew the end was near for some time now.

I'm far from a liberal hater and I would never call myself a Republican or a conservative per se. Kennedy played the other side of the two party coin VERY WELL!

some here show respect for him. he was a drunk. a murderer. a coward. good riddance.





On 19 July 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. He swam to shore and walked back to the party -- passing several houses and a fire station -- and two friends 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.

Of course, he did, he was a politician, wasn't he? So, what would you call yourself on the current political spectrum? And are you a misogynist? If you don't know what the word means, look it up, google is your friend.

Get over it people, the man was 77.

While I do tend to recognize and sympathize with those who have lost loved ones, I'm not going to do it this time.

The man murdered someone, left a woman to drown. He was a career politician and he died stinking rich off his ransacking of the laws of the United States.

The media is calling him "the most influential law maker in US history", if that's any indication of the BS. The most influential... really? Is this like the Time magazine poll raided by 4chan?

Sad day this is, but not because he's died.

I'm sorry for his family and those that loved and admired him. For the rest of us, good riddance.

Have a little respect, a good many of you say. Well, to have respect you must give respect. Old Ted sure didn't have much respect for his wife and family when he boozed it up and cheated on his wife. He sure didn't have much respect for Mary Jo Kopeckne when he left her to drown in his car while he staggered home and went to bed. He didn't even have enough respect to call someone so that maybe she could have lived.

Don't talk to me about respect. This man may have been a wealthy politician, but he was a moron. I have as much respect for him as I do the drunk down the street.

Oh, and a supporter for terrorism. Lobbying for a visa for the leader of the Provisional IRA - even when the State Department was against it - is an insult.

Good riddance.

At long last, Satan has a playmate in Hell. Kennedy was a festering chancre in American politics and a blight on true American values for far, far too long. Would that Teddy had remained in the car at the bottom of Poucha Pond back in 1969 and Mary Jo had escaped. America would be a different and better place today.

Can we have some decorum around here, folks?

A man's dead from cancer, and already, half of you seem like jackals who are trying to pistol off their best comments on why they think Mr. Kennedy was a bad man.

As for Mr. Kennedy, God rest your soul.

If it makes any difference, I've been publicly railing against Teddy Kennedy for over 3 decades. This is just another occasion to vent, as far as I'm concerned — particularly with the state-run media proclaiming Kennedy a demigod. Revolting.

Save it for another day if you want, but don't do it in a thread where he's passed away. It feels creepy enough seeing comments from people saying they're glad he's in Hell.

I don't believe in a "hell", but I sure am glad he isn't in power anymore.

Whether you loved him, hated him, or were indifferent ... he still made a LOT of difference in our world.

He worked up to the end, an embodiment of the Great Ameican Work Ethic that seems to have died with the last several generations.

Chappiquidick (sp?) ... don't forget Laura Bush killed HER fiance in a drunken automobile accident, and Bush 43rd got tickets in Maine and Texas for driving drunk. So, don't throw stones if you live in aglass house.

Senator Ted Kennedy also LISTENED to the people, unlike my Senators and Representatives. I wrote Ted about the Iraq War and the international disrespect America had earned about five years before mainstream media picked up the story. At that time, Kennedy immediately responded and accepted a forum-like invitation (in Yahoo) to address issues and answer people's questions. We were Americans asking questions, not Massachusetts constituents. He CARED and it showed.

Now, whether we agree or disagree with his politics, as a human he had some strong positive characteristics that are rare.

Rest in Peace Ted, you earned it!

Hm. Well, I'm not here to massage anyone's emotional stability. But if it makes you feel any better, I acknowledge that Ted Kennedy was a human being, of sorts, and I'm sure that somebody out there is grieving his demise.

But I refuse to expend my sympathy.

Oh okay I get, this is about your hatred for conservatives. You assume that everyone who had a problem with the man is a conservative.

Here is a hint: Myself, and every other person here will also not shed a tear for these individuals either.
