Why Ted goes to Hell CLV

Kennedy Legacy # 72

 This isn't a revelation, but a timely reminder. Just as Edward Kennedy was instrumental in the Bork Borking that triggered what has by now become a war to the death between Americans and ratbastardmotherfarkingcorksuckingdemocrats, Teddy was an early advocate of his party's now standard "Hooray for Democrats, Fuck the USA" model for governing.  Sorry Ted, it's Antenora for you.

Robinson, writing for, says Kennedy sent his close friend, former California state Sen. John Tunney, to Moscow with a secret message to Andropov: Help the Democrats battle Reagan in the 1984 presidential election, and in return Kennedy would help Andropov in dealing with Reagan.

Robinson recounts that Victor Chebrikov, a top KGB official, recorded the details of Kennedy's offer in a memo that was uncovered in Soviet archives in 1991.

Kennedy promised to:

  • Visit Moscow and prep the Soviets on effective propaganda. "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," states the Sovietmemo.
  •  Help Andropov get on U.S. television. "A direct appeal ... to the American people will, without a doubt, attract a great deal of attention and interest in the country," states the memo. "If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y.V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interviews. ... The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side.

According to the memo, Kennedy also had told Tunney that he planned to run for president in 1988. [Kennedy's Secret Soviet Overture Against Reagan]

    Tale of another modern Republican not
    (No, not Weicker, Jodi Corzine)

    Connecticut grabs $7,007 in state and local taxes per man, woman and child resident,

    Given the size of its deficit, it's hard to believe that for 200 years Connecticut balanced its budget without any income tax and became the richest state in the bargain. That changed in 1991 when then-Governor Lowell Weicker pushed the state's first-ever personal income tax with a promise that the rate would remain flat at 4.5%. But the next time the state couldn't pay its bills, in 2001, the legislature raised Mr. Weicker's tax to 5%. In 2007, Ms. Rell wanted ... (WSJ- Jodi Corzine).


    Oh Geez...
    Does that mean the Swimmer might ... *shudder*

    This video shows that Michael was still alive after his dead body was transported to the Los Angeles Dept. of Coroner I checked the license plate number and it looks like the King of Pop is jumping out of the same van, his dead body has been in. I got the original video tape from a trustworthy source. I know him for years. And I am sure it´s real and Michael is alive.

    So which is it?
    "The greatest expectations were placed upon Ted Kennedy’s shoulders because of who he was, but he surpassed them all because of who he became," Mr. Obama said. "We do not weep for him today because of the prestige attached to his name or his office. We weep because we loved this kind and tender hero who persevered blah-blah-blah
    Senator Edward 'Ted' Kennedy stood for sleaze. Bloated and drunken, he used his standing in the Kennedy clan to chase vulnerable women  -  which brought his dream of reaching the White House to a shameful end.  A drunk Ted had been driving back from a party to the family 'compound' on Martha's ...hubba-hubba-hubba
    If you trend towards seeing the Swimmer as "the greatest legislator of our time," and not the besotted predator whose entire life was a study in privilege without  responsibility, consider this legislative legacy.

    Donks - the REAL cuture of corruption

    Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income -- including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale -- and who is being probed by the House Ethics Committee -- failed to reveal a staggering $3 million in various business transactions over the same period. ... Rangel is in arrears on New Jersey property taxes -- for property that for more than 15 years he failed to disclose to Congress and the public. .... I keep looking for the letters IRS and FBI in this article, for naught. The Democrat party is indeed the Party of Tax Evaders.
