barack obama is the last kennedy brother

well should some of you be concerned that the kennedy dynasty is now over with the death of ted kennedy, fear not, because apparently slobbering, delusional chris matthews says obama is now the last kennedy brother.

and while many across the networks are singing his praises today for a life well lived – even using his death as a political ploy to shamelessly advance obamacare – mary jo kopechne was unavailable for comment.

    Hey Kate, I posted something similar on my blog today. This stuff just leaves me speechless!

    Sometimes it’s better if you don’t say anything if all you can do is mock the dead. Senator Kennedy worked hard to atone for what he did by the following accomplishments:

    1. He was the key to starting Head Start as part of the War on Poverty.
    2. Ladies listen up! It was Kennedy who fought for Title IX equal access for women and girls especially in the schools through sports.
    3. He proposed increases in minimum wage and was the primary advocate for the Family and Medical Leave Act which I am sure if you have kids, you used.
    4. Kate this one is for you: He partnered with Shrub on the No Child Left Behind Act.
    5. He led the fight for passage of hate crimes legislation and sought protections against discrimination for gays and women.
    6. He unashamedly backed unrestricted access to abortion even in late term and for teens crossing state lines.

    These are just a few of his courageous accomplishments while in the senate. Don’t forget, he was fairly elected for over 40 years by the people of Massachusetts, the very place where Chappaquick happened. RIP Senator Kennedy.

  • paula says:

    Got better as he got older??? Huh??? And let’s not forget the dead woman in Chappaquiddick. Further confirmation that Chris Matthews is insane.

  • Jane says:

    Teddy was the last of a remarkable group of kids to a remarkable set of parents. I think maybe Chris Matthews is right in that he was asking Barack to take the heavy burden from his shoulders. He passed the torch.

    No need to take pleasure in the death of this great man.

  • kate says:

    well i am sure his family and friends loved him and they will mourn and miss him deeply.

    however, he was a terribly conflicted man and you cannot deny that. he may have loved to speak for the poor and the underpriviledged in this country but he lived his own life as a rich, spoiled playboy who had everything his heart desired.

    his own involvement in mary jo kopechne’s death still is unclear and shouts “coward!” at the least. i am not impressed with kennedy’s record of legislative accomplishments paul because he passed those at my expense and most likely yours — working class americans.

    if democrats want to try to gloss over his legacy by downplaying chappaquiddick they can, but he will forever be linked to it and it is a horrible stain. and if you all want to graft in barack obama to the kennedy dynasty, knock yourself out.

  • Rope says:

    Maybe matthews felt another little tingle run up his leg.

    Barack Hussein Obama Kennedy, kinda has a nice ring to it.

    And Jane there is no pleasure in the death of anyone, including MARY JO KOPECHNE.

  • PenniePan says:

    Well I am very sad today. I can’t get enough of the TV coverage of him and the Camelot dream. I think Teddy had a lot to bear and a very hard life. That the Kennedy curse didn’t get him too is a miracle. As far as Mary Jo. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s amazing they both didn’t die in such a bad accident. Don’t make it more then it was.

  • A_Reluctant_Pundit says:

    These are the now famous words that Ted Kennedy eulogized his brother Robert F. Kennedy with:

    “My brother need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life; to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it.

    Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world.”

    Those are beautiful words aren’t they? They could be said of Teddy too. He meant so much to so many of us. He was not perfect. None of us are. He will be so missed but at least he is at peace and with no illness.

  • Maddie says:

    I was looking for something nice about Senator Kennedy and saw this topic in Google. I am sad for him that you would mock him in such a way.

    Rest in Peace Senator Kennedy. Health Care Reform will be passed for all Americans.

  • Rope says:

    Wrong place at the wrong time. If this is so why after he climbed out of the car did he wait until the next day, after her body was found, to say anything? If it was an accident why didn’t he get help?

    Wrong place, wrong time. That’s going in my big chief tablet. Unreal.

  • Maddie says:

    I also want to say that with all the garbage noise going on around us from teabaggers and your paid protestors to disrupt townhalls, here is the passing of a good man who always stood up for those in our country who had no voice, who came from a family so ravaged by hate but that believed to its very core that you give back to America as good or better than what you got, and that public service is both an honor and a duty to your fellow citizens. Please take a break from your evil bile to respect someone like this. I could just cry when I read these comments.

  • Elaine Minshau Lee says:

    I saw the flag at our post office flying at half-mast and it brought on memories of his fallen brothers all over again. I didn’t know I would cry so much. A closed chapter in America, on so many levels.

    RIP dear faithful Teddy, little brother to giants.

    And yes I read your post. But I agree with Chris Matthews. President Obama and Michelle have taken up the Kennedy mantle.

  • Jane says:

    Let there be the Edward M. Kennedy Health Care Act. Now. Sign it Senators!

  • micky says:


    “here is the passing of a good man who always stood up for those in our country who had no voice”

    Yeah, its hard to have a voice when your trapped in car submerged in a river as you choke on your last breath

  • paula says:

    Maddie – I thought you were just stopping by… why are you still here?

    BTW I was not paid to walk at the “tea party” protest I just attended, unlike the young man who was there to argue with us and tell us how good Obama’s healthcare reform would be. He answered a Craigslist ad, and was paid $500/week to attend protests.

  • Jared says:

    Ted was a good old guy but had his demons. He was the youngest and like someone said had a lot of pressure on him after the death of his brothers. He did wrong at Chappaquidick. But the times and legal system didn’t really deal with him. He got away with manslaughter I would imagine. What do you think Ken about that?

    I do think he worked hard these last 30 plus years to make up for his sins. He was a champion for liberal causes. He was one of those people that you either really love or really hate.

  • Jules says:

    Chris Mathews is an idiotic boob and an embarrassment to NBC. He just speaks nonsense now. I can’t even listen to him anymore and I use to be such a fan years ago.

  • kate says:

    ‘Please take a break from your evil bile to respect someone like this.’

    when you do maddie. thanks for the lecture though. 🙂

  • Ken says:

    “Let there be the Edward M. Kennedy Health Care Act. Now. Sign it Senators!”

    That’s it, Jane!! Politicize his death! Your so classy!!!

    Bunch of vultures.

  • Ken says:

    I think Maddie has an infusion of Kool Aid going on. Good Lord!

    Kennedy worked for nobody other than himself. Mourn the man, but lets not pretend he is something he is not.

  • gene says:

    kennedy didn’t get the title “lion of the senate” because he was a “kennedy”. he earned it. he has over 300 peices of legislation with his name as the lead. damn. even in death you people are ugly.

  • Ken says:

    Yes, gene, and lets not forget an important piece that he titled. I refer to Kennedy’s letter to the Soviets at the height of the Cold War to undermine the efforts of Ronald Reagan.

    “1. Kennedy asks Y.V. Andropov to consider inviting the senator to Moscow for a personal meeting in July of this year. The main purpose of the meeting, according to the senator, would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA.”

    Read the whole letter, its quite telling. Yeah, that Kennedy was a class act, alright.

  • micky says:

    Look at the bright side.
    Now the Dead Kennedys can add a new member to their band.

  • gene says:

    nice christian attitude you a-holes have. don’t come cryin when shrub dies.

  • Ken says:

    Yes, gene, because the liberal left of this country has been the definition of compassion when conservatives pass on. Spare me your fake outrage. Hey, let me grab a quote from Pennie when Robert Novak died recently:

    “I hope he rots in hell myself!”

    Ah yes, you stay classy lefties!! Please stop whining.

  • What is ugly is that Teddy Kennedy used his family’s position to sweep under the rug the fact that the left the scene of accident and left a young woman to die – alone and probably quite scared.

    How do you atone for that when you never had a day in court? How do you atone for letting another human being die to save your own skin?

    In any decent society Kennedy never would have been allowed to have a political career – he would have stood trial for the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. But his family’s money and prestige got him off the hook.

    None of this is untrue.

  • nice christian attitude you a-holes have. don’t come cryin when shrub dies.

    Wow Gene – you sound like Obama, contradicting yourself in the same speech.

  • Jane says:

    Not original Micky. That’s been all over the internet and radio today. You stole that too like you steal everything. Just one more thing to add to your list of stolen lines.

    Gene this group will be the first in line crying about George Bush.

  • gene says:

    oh he’s in hell alright saving w a place right next to him

  • Ken says:

    “oh he’s in hell alright saving w a place right next to him”

    Thanks for proving my point gene. You make it way too easy.

  • kate says:

    gene, jane

    teddy left a 28 yo woman to die all alone while he went and cowered in the corner of a hotel room all night. because his name and his money, he spent not one day in jail. he raised a family, saw grandchildren come along, had a long prestigious career and died an old man.

    that 28 yo woman never married. never had babies or grandbabies. never had a long prestigious career because she died a horrible death that involved your ‘lion of the senate’.

    maybe you liberals can look past that, i can’t.

  • Callahan says:

    Teddy is proof positive that only the good die young.

  • Callahan says:

    I’m also buying a good bottle of Cutty Sark to celebrate the passing of this fatuous, elitist blowhard who should have spent the last 40 years in prison rather then the glorious halls of the Senate.

  • Breana says:

    The final insult is they are burying this lardass at Arlington.

  • micky says:

    Ya know what Jane.
    I dont give a rats ass where its been or if its original or not. I was watching DK at the Whiskey in Hollywood for a 2.50 cover charge when you were probably in braces listening to Barney and had already thought of it many times as I sat there and watched telling myself the group was kinda thin. Its fitting to say it as many times as we can say it because frankly it would be a better testimonial and legacy than the one the drunken murderer with the blood of countless babies on his hands left behind.
    You guys need to get a little more creative and original in your attacks o me, its really quite funny for me to see you all reach so deep to make nothing but bigger fools of yourselves than you already are as I never claimed I coined the thought/phrase and you’ve never been able to prove I stole anything contrary to the many times I’ve busted you liberals “RED HANDED!!!!” stealing and plagiarizing with links to prove only because its really you guys who have no original thought.
    I can write, I can debate, I can drive my point, I can go back and forth with the best of em and have years of posts to prove it.
    None of which you’ll ever find anything taken from anyone.

    I can say this much.
    You wont ever have to worry about getting busted taking anything from anyone. Thats for damn sure

  • micky says:

    Opp, I stand corrected.
    I wonder how many times this has been said everywhere today.

    “Gene this group will be the first in line crying about George Bush.”

    And you can rail on Bush all you want when his time comes and I wont care. Know why ?

    It would be like someone drinking koolaid their whole life and then giving an opinion on a fine wine.

  • micky says:

    Maybe the hurst will drive off a bridge.
    Yeah jane, someone probably said that already also

  • Laura says:

    Kennedy sought to preseve an image. One carefully crafted by his parents and upheld by certain portions of the media. Yet perception vs. reality is what counts. The media would have us believe that the Kennedy’s were wholesome public servants that championed the less fortunate- nice spin but factually inaccurate. The drowning of MaryJo, the nephew’s rape trial, the babysitter relationship- all from one family. Overall they were more akin to social deviants than the socialites they so desperately sought to emulate. Camelot- how absurd!!!!!
    Ted Kennedy was a hard core politican who worked the system and lived “large” while he championed the poor… how ironic!
    RIP- this whole story
