Bootz came up with this one this morning. I’ll echo it here in total. He’s right on the money.


By now you’ve heard of Ted Kennedy’s interview with the Associated Press. It was an anti-Bush, anti-war tirade loose on facts and high on leftist rhetoric.

Kennedy told the AP that “This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.”

Is there any basis in fact for this claim? Kennedy cites none … he’s just satisfied to make the charge. Some analysts believe Kennedy is alluding to a meeting in Texas in January of 2002, not 2003. Carl Rove was talking to Texas Republicans and told them that the public trusts the Republicans to do the right thing in fighting terrorism. Was that Kennedy’s announcement “that the war was going to take place and was going to be good politically?”

Kennedy also says that foreign leaders are being bribed with taxpayer money: “My belief is that this money is being shuffled all around to these political leaders in all parts of the world, bribing them to send in troops.”

Nobody has made this claim before Kennedy. There are no US taxpayer funds being paid to foreign leaders for support in the war in Iraq. Could Kennedy possibly be talking about the U.S. paying the transportation costs for foreign troops going to Iraq?

This bloated sot shouldn’t even be in the Senate. The very fact that he is a respected member of the Democratic leadership is testament to the moral depravity of the Democratic Party and its supporters. Here is a man who allowed a woman, widely believed to be his paramour, to die inside his partially submerged car while he paced up and down the roadside worrying about his political future. He then used his family’s wealth and fame to virtually escape any responsibility for his cowardly actions. He should have had the decency to disappear behind the walls of the Kennedy compound years ago. Instead, he’s one of the most powerful Democrats in the Senate, orchestrating filibusters against conservative appointees to federal courts and lying about the motivations behind the war on terrorism.

Democrats should be so proud.
