A note to people posting in this thread:

Fark welcomes a variety of political views. There are a lot of people here, and it seems that no two are in the same place on the political spectrum.

That said, hate speech will not be tolerated here. If you are here to indicate that you agree or disagree with everything that the person did, you are welcome to do so. If you are here to agree or disagree with the current political administration, you are also welcome to do so. If you cannot find a way to express that sentiment respectfully, please hold off posting until you can.

I never celebrate a death and mourn his passing, but he was a total political train wreck, accomplishing nothing. Let the CNN post-mortem blow job begin.

I predict a nice, rational discussion of the man and his career.
 
2009-08-26 01:29:58 AM  
If I can't say anything nice I won't say anything at all

Rest in peace Ted. No matter what else you may have been, you ultimately enjoyed a touch of the drink as much as the rest of us.

RIP Teddy.

Forget what I said, His Father was a scumbag, his brothers (except Joe) were scumbags his children, nephews & Nieces are scumbags & Teddy was a scumbag. Seriously America get over the Kennedy family.

Did he get the governor to disregard the law, like he asked, and appoint a replacement? If not, there will be an election in the next 6 months.

Let the haters hate. Same thing happened when Reagan died. Haters hated all over the place while fellaters fellated all over the place.

In the end, the man's history speaks for itself. Whatever blinders you choose to put on to ignore the parts of his life you want to in order to cement your caricaturization of him is your choosing.

I never voted for him, and I don't think if given the opportunity I ever would have, but I don't necessarily think him a bad person or a bad politician.

Sorry, just whargarblin'. Whenever X-Conservative dies or Y-Conservative dies, it's a dickfight over who's more hateful over somebody's death.

As I understand it, the gov doesn't get to appoint a successor under Mass. law (thamks to a change of law the Dems ran through when Mittens was gov). They have to hold an election.

Airfoilsguy: Wiki don't fark around (new window)

"Death

Kennedy died on August 25, 2009 at his home in Hyannisport, Massachusetts.The people rejoiced at his passing."

Ok, now THAT is just plain harsh.
 
2009-08-26 01:51:11 AM  
Sad. I don't care if you are left or right. The Kennedy brothers were a huge influence on modern America and they all died in the saddle whether claimed by an assassin's bullet or brain cancer.

So Ted, here is an Irish send off..

May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
 
2009-08-26 01:51:23 AM  
Well shiat. RIP Ted.
