After the president of Harvard hailed him as a “national leader but a local servant,” after the pastor read the “Let us now praise famous men” passage from the Bible and after the cellist Yo-Yo Ma honored him by performing a Gershwin prelude, Senator Edward M. Kennedy lumbered across the antique stage.
Mr. Kennedy’s wife, Vicki, tried to lead him off, but he broke away, grinning. For a few extra moments, he kept the stage.
“Obviously I’ve been touched and grateful,” Mr. Kennedy said in a phone interview Friday from the rented home in Miami where he has spent most of the winter. Beyond that, I don’t really plan to go away soon.”
Too bad . . . about not going away soon. Has this piece of shit ever apologized for allowing Mary Jo Kopechne to die at Chappaquiddick? Asswipe got off with a two-month suspended sentence and his drievrs license was revoked for a year - after he drove his car with Ms. Kopechne inside off the bridge, fought his way out of the submerged vehicle, swam to the top, and then went home and went to bed. And did not call the police until after someone discovered Mary Jo's body the next day.
And now we are supposed to laud his bloated dickwad because - boo-friggin'-hoo - he has cancer?
Friends who have seen Mr. Kennedy describe him as driven and focused on work. He sometimes gets angry watching C-Span, pores over memorandums and speed-dials staff members and colleagues (sometimes from his sailboat, the Mya).
Allowed a girl from the wrong side of the tracks to die. Never worked for profit a day in his life. Adanced the pro-death abortion industry.
Just go and die quietly. You don't deserve any applause.
