Farewell Ted

Edward M. Kennedy might best be remembered in the same words he used in his euology for Robert F. Kennedy in 1968:
 
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.”
 
Farewell Ted.

    As the liberals look back at Ted Kennedy through their rose colored glasses, let’s not forget his being kicked out of Harvard for cheating, the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, boozy indescretions, and his skirt chasing.

    Though he was definitely a powerful and effective Senator, I believe he was anything but “a good and decent man”.
