My friend Mark (good guitar player) received the following E-Mail from TedKennedy.com. Mark forwarded it to me, fairly confident that it would cause instant apoplexy. It did. I thought I would share it with you.

Dear mark (sic),

Our country’s Republican leadership makes an art of manipulating the truth because they know the consequences TedKennedy e-mail.jpgof honesty will be too severe: few Americans would support their narrow and ideological agenda and even fewer would accept the level of corruption and cronyism that plagues their party.

That’s why you and I must tell the truth about them. Every day between now and the 2006 elections is an opportunity to pull back the curtain and show Americans the true nature of their government. It won’t be easy, but I believe you’re reading this email because you find the alternative unacceptable.

The right-wing spin machine has fought back noisily at every turn – and their distortions and attacks will only intensify as the November election comes closer. We have to be ready to fight anything they can throw at us. I hope very much that you’ll be part of this fight, and that you’ll help us to make sure we’re ready by contributing $35 or more, if you can afford it, to my re-election campaign:


In recent weeks, Republicans have done everything they can to distract the media and the country with attacks and distortions. Instead of candidly discussing Samuel Alito’s philosophy and background in the recent hearings on his nomination to the Supreme Court, they ignored his obvious support for the White House’s abuses of power. His right-wing credentials are red meat for the reactionary ideologues who have taken control of the Republican Party.

His nomination by the President is the latest example of this Administration’s refusal to level with the American people. From tax cuts to the environment to New Orleans to Iraq, the current Republican leadership twists reality with cherry-picked evidence and outright lies.

It’s time for change. Between now and November, we need to show America just how far they’ve gone wrong on so many issues vital to all our people. We need to make our case loud and clear that Democratic leadership won’t need smokescreens and distortions to govern. If you’re reading this message you likely don’t need to be convinced – but we do need your support for our efforts to reach out to others. Please support our all-important effort by contributing today:


Our community is a powerful way to advance our message. In the coming months, I look forward to working with you to advocate positive initiatives and hold the Republican leadership accountable for undermining our ideals at home and our respect in the world. With your support, we can reach a larger audience and build momentum throughout this election year.

We have nine months to restore honest government by electing Democrats up and down the ballot. Time is short, but with your help, we can make it happen!

Yours for a Democratic Majority in ’06!

/s/ Edward M. Kennedy

Each time this detestable sack of bilge runs his mouth is a gift to the Republican party. Thanks, Ted. Let’s hope the Democrats keep you and Howard Dean front and center.


  1. Amen, bro. I’m a Dem, and this guy is one example of why my party’s in the tank (no pun intended).

  3. I’d give him the $35 if I could find out “the truth” about what he really did between 12am and 9am on July 19, 1969. I bet he had to have help spelling “Truth.”

    I clicked on the “Demand Answers Not Cover-Ups” button but the only thing there was a bunch of crap about Sam Alito. Alito? That friggin Boy Scout never killed anyone! What’s he doing under that button?

    Again, Teddy, if you’re out there, my offer still stands. I’ll give you $35 for the truth, but I’m betting my money’s safe.

  4. Sorry to bother you again, but did you notice the contribution “radio” buttons; $35, $50, $75, $100, $150, $250, $4,200…. wait, $4,200?? WTF?? Is that the amount for his bar tab??

    Hopefully a smart lawyer like yourself can enlighten me. I gotta be missing something.

  5. I’m thinking that picture would be perfect for a Mary Jo Kopechne memorial fundraiser 🙂

  6. I went to his sight and laughed my ass off. Of course I will now have to destroy my computer!

    Does anyone really want a Judge that would tell how he would rule on a case before the case came to trial? Ithought the SCOTUS was to use EVIDENCE and ARGUMENTS and PRIOR CASE LAW to make decisions, not personal opinions. If Allito had indicated how he would rule in any future case before the SCOTUS, that would be grounds to keep him off the court!

  7. Mr. Kennedy is an embarrassment. He can barely read the cards his staff prepares for him. He huffs and puffs at the committee chairman. I doubt if he has had a coherent thought, other than, “Where’s the scotch?” in 20 years.

    The people of MA ought to give him the courtesy of sending him home to save us all from the pain of watching his continuing slide into mental incontinence.

  8. I love this F’n guy. Could there be a better poster child for the democratic party? Instead of actually standing for something meaningful, just talk shit about republicans. Hey, FATBOY it ain’t gonna work!
    Joan,you bitch…….. where’s my Chivas!?!?!

  9. I’d give him 35$ to pull back the curtain on the Clinton administration. Doesn’t everybody love a good cigar demonstration with a lipsmackin’ endin’?

    Hell, I’d give twice that, possibley more, to see him and Rummy in the ring. Ultimate fighting…

  10. We could live very nicely without the “gift” of Senator Ted Kennedy. It’s all about the money isn’t it? Kennedy will do and say anything to remain relevant to the dwindling masses that want to believe his and the rants of the left.

  11. I shall do my best to “unelect” him next time he’s on the ballot. The man makes my skin crawl. Of course I tried to do that with Durbin when I was in Illinois – you see how far I got with that… sheesh!
