A short so long for Ted Kennedy

Since most of my friends and relatives think that my liberal tendencies run just a little to the left of Uncle Joe Stalin, I thought I would surprise them with a very short post noting the death of the “Liberal Lion” Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Ted Kennedy was the second Kennedy brother of John F. who never made it to the coveted presidency. That worked out okay for people on both sides of the political spectrum. The right didn’t get the liberal Kennedy brother as president. The left and center got a pretty damn good legislator and one hell of an orator of the likes one never sees anymore in Congress. Byrd was an old-time orator but he has just become too old to do the job. I’m sorry to say.

Ted Kennedy had his faults like all human beings. He wasn’t a good driver to say the least. But he was a tough old bird who did a lot of good for a lot of people.

If you didn’t like him or can’t find something for which to admire him, I’m sorry. I can find good in even the sorriest individuals on Earth with maybe the exception of Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity … Oh, Limbaugh does a good impression of a pig running around with a stick in his mouth when he inserts a cigar. My uncle used to say when he would see someone smoking a cigar: “I guess it’s going to rain. I see a pig running around with a stick in his mouth.” You had to be there.

So there is my short eulogy for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., the late. Rest in peace.

How do you spell scam: "Internet"

It seems as if the Internet has proved the best platform ever for promoting scams. It appears that is the primary reason for the Internet is to separate one’s money from their wallet. Keep people online long enough and maybe they’ll buy something. Jesus Christ.

Suddenly, I have more faith than ever in car dealers.
