Ted Kennedy Is Dead....Alas....

Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy passed away at the age of 77.

It was a life spent having power handed to him by his family, followed by decades of craven opportunism in order to hold onto that power.

I'm not sure if he was successful in getting the Massachusetts state legislature to change the rules again in order for one of his family to get his seat, which was how he got it in the first place, but since the voters of Massachusetts would vote for a skidmark on a pair of underpants if its last name was Kennedy, the seat will probably stay in the family.

I'd like to end this little obituary with three words that will most likely be forgotten in the mainstream media's rush to canonize the last of the "Camelot" crew:
