Sen. Kennedy's anger & recklessness

It’s U. of Wisconsin law profssror Ann Althouse’s post at her eponymous blog. I comment below the star line.

Ann’s post:

"A year ago, the president said we couldn't withdraw because there was too much violence."
"Now he says we can't afford to withdraw because violence is down."

Ted Kennedy to General Petraeus.

Me to Ted Kennedy: "A year ago, you wanted to give up because we were losing, and now, you want to give up because we're winning."



At the time of Abu Ghraib, Sen. Ted Kennedy said on the Senate floor:

"On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked, 'Who would prefer that Saddam's torture chambers still be open?'" said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. "Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management: U.S. management."
Since he was young, Kennedy has had a lot of anger and done many reckless things.

Remember all his drinking, wenching and police runins when he was a student at UVA law school?

Then there was …. well, most of you know a lot of it.

With Kennedy well into his seventies, it’s probably too late to expect him to do anything about his anger and the reckless behavior it’s bred.

But can't Kennedy stop targeting America’s military and our efforts in Iraq?

Why doesn’t Kennedy direct his anger at people like President Joseph Mugabe?

Edward Moore Kennedy is, quite simply, a moral reprobate, an ethical scoundrel, and an intellectual cipher. For a person of his moral stature to attempt to lecture General Petraeus is downright ludicrous. Kennedy is the best the Democrats can offer as an elder statesman? Or is it Grand Kleagle Robert Byrd who is the head Democrat? Whichever, they clearly are in dire need of a moral compass.

John -

Have to agree with mac and Tarheel Hawkeye. Just want to add, please don't take automobile trips with Sen. Kennedy that involve bridges.

Hi John,

As an ex Zimbabwean, and in the in the interest of historical correctness, Mugabe's first names are Robert Gabriel.

Whatever his name, however, he is still a racist thug.

Kennedy is widely recognized as a buffoon. The fact that he doesn't realize it turns a comedy into a tragedy.

Where's the coverage of that damned Bob Ashley talk in Kentucky yesterday?

Did anyone get news from that sordid affair?

Do we operate under a system of equal justice under law? Or is there one system for the average citizen and another for the high and mighty?

I just discovered Kennedy car wash T shirts-where have I been all this time?
