SOLO-International Press Release: Ding! Dong! The Kennedy Is Dead!

August 26, 2008

Not since the capture of Saddam Hussein has America had as much reason to celebrate as it has over the death of the evil Senator Edward Kennedy, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.

"This treasonist opposed the overthrow of Saddam, even though he was one of those who initially believed Saddam had WMDs. When he thought there was political capital to be made from opposing the attempt to remove that tyrant, he opposed it. He called it 'Bush's Vietnam,' notwithstanding that it was his brother who took America into that ill-fated venture.

"Kennedy drove a floozie whom he was intending to bonk off a bridge and failed even to try to rescue her from the waters into which he'd plunged her. He got away with it because he was a Kennedy. He went on to sponsor various initiatives designed to turn America into a socialist state. Most recently, Kennedy has been at the forefront of the move to nationalize health care in America—he whose own care was furnished so excellently by the private sector.

"Senator Kennedy was a two-timer, a hypocrite, a murderer and a communist. His death should occasion nothing but exultation. It should spell the end of Sovietized health care of the type he and Obama have been trying to sneak and rush through the legislative process.

"The old saying, 'Good riddance to bad rubbish' could scarcely be more apposite in the circumstances," Perigo concludes.

Lindsay Perigo:

No Memorial Blandishments

F L Light's picture

Ignominious primacy the names
Of Kennedy deserve for heinous aims.
These bloated monsters savor blandishments
To cool their overheated corpulence.
According to incensed cacophony,
The media with the Kennedys agree.
Leaders of errors are alluring you
With multidisney media seeming true.

Can't be certain

I expect the applause from the left, but his opponents unwilling to criticize him is appalling. He apparently liked to hear jokes about Chappaquidick--what kind of soul does that reveal?. Even after that incident, he made no attempt to reform his behavior. Check out this GQ expose done in 1990 (the good stuff starts to kick in on page 3). The portrayal is indeed sobering--and chilling. Compare that to the gaudy videos the media is now using that portray him as a serene man out for a sail.

I knew he was going down for the dirt nap when his July 2 letter was released last week (rather odd timing) imploring the Massachusetts legislature to change the law governing replacements. In 2004, the Mass legislature changed the law so that it required a five month campaign and election to determine a senatorial replacement. Why 2004? With the prospect of Kerry winning the presidency, Dems did not want Republican Governor Mitt Romney appointing a replacement. Who urged this change in the law? Why, Teddy Kennedy!!

Now, with the prospect of the Dems being down a vote on Obamacare, what does Teddy do? He writes a letter urging a change in the law so that Obama wanna-be and Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick can appoint an interim replacement in order to get that much-needed Obamacare vote--with a good chance of Deval appointing himself.

Leave it to Teddy Kennedy to use his own death to political advantage. The man was a rotten human being.


That's the best

That's the best commentary so far on that SOB, Neil. Too bad Steyn didn't go on about how the liberal media have their hands on the American throat shoving Kennedys down the body politic for generations.

The Kennedy family has always gotten a free ride from the media no matter how bad the behavior. JFK's own behavior was bad and dangerous to the country. Contrast Teddy's treatment with that of a Republican Senator from Oregon who was driven from office because he chased his secretary around his (her?) desk.

PM Brown's summary statement that Kennedy spent his life "fighting for the causes which were his life's work," is empty, tautological. Maybe it sticks in his craw to go on and on about Kennedy's championing the good of children, overlooking what his actual effects were.

For what he did to Mary Jo and Robert Bork (and I disagree with a lot of Bork's posiitons--but he didn't deserve the vicious treatment he got at Fatboy's hands), I will say that I will not miss him.

Edward Kennedy, RIP - Roast in Perdition.

Judge and be prepared to be judged

HWH's picture

It was when watching Christopher Hitchens uncompromising
about what a scumbag Rev Fallwell was that I
realised the importance of making these crucial judgements on the death
of scumbags.

The most damning curse at one point in ancient history was to erase a
mans name from the tables of those who have lived, and by uttering
these damning euologies one is doing a great service towards
the ends of justice

The best thing one can say for the crumb Ted Kennedy is that he is dead.

Great piece Linz

Just saw this from Hitchens in relation to Falwell, and it's par for the course for this lowlife.

"If you gave Falwell an enema, he could be buried in a matchbox"

It'll be Teddy Kennedy who has gone to hell. He'll be shovelling coal with Bobby Sands. Smiling

Oh, Kenny...

I was very sad when I heard that Teddy Kennedy had died. Sad

I thought that he had croaked a few months ago. Evil

'Good riddance to bad rubbish'

Marcus's picture

It's amazing, but that's exactly the same sentence that popped into my head when I read that Ted Kennedy had died.

It was no surprise that Gordon Brown was one of the first creaming his pants to lay praise on him. Very weird in a way though because I doubt many in the UK really know much about him. Of course it might play well to the Marxists in the labour party.

What a creep Kennedy was. Watch how the mainstream liberal media fawns over him.

Thanks Linz, this press release was needed!

Gordon Brown pays tribute to Edward Kennedy

Wednesday, 26 August 2009

Prime Minister Gordon Brown led UK tributes to Senator Edward Kennedy, saying he would be mourned in "every continent".

Mr Brown praised the senator for "fighting for the causes which were his life's work" even as he faced illness and death.

Politicians lined up to pay tribute to Mr Kennedy following the announcement from his family today that the 77-year-old senator, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour last year, had died.

Mr Brown said: "Senator Edward Kennedy will be mourned not just in America but in every continent.

"He is admired around the world as the senator of senators.

"He led the world in championing children's education and health care, and believed that every single child should have the chance to realise their potential to the full.

"Even facing illness and death,, he never stopped fighting for the causes which were his life's work.

"I am proud to have counted him as a friend and proud that the United Kingdom recognised his service earlier this year with the award of an honorary knighthood."

He added: "My thoughts and those of Sarah are with his remarkable and loving wife Vicki and his great family."...

Former prime minister Tony Blair added his tribute, praising his "passionate commitment" to the Northern Ireland peace process.

He said "Senator Kennedy was a figure who inspired admiration, respect and devotion, not just in America but around the world.

"He was a true public servant committed to the values of fairness, justice and opportunity.

"I saw his focus and determination first hand in Northern Ireland where his passionate commitment was matched with a practical understanding of what needed to be done to bring about peace and to sustain it.

"I was delighted he could join us in Belfast the day devolved government was restored.

"My thoughts and prayers today are with all his family and friends as they reflect on the loss of a great and good man."...

IRA sympathiser Ted Kennedy was no friend of Britain

By Ed West

...For years Kennedy was the bang-drummer-in-chief for brainless Irish-American IRA sympathisers, dimwits who shouted “troops out of Dublin!” and sang maudlin songs from the comfort of Boston and New York, giving money for strangers 3,000 miles away to murder their neighbours.

For despite the pseudo-Marxist justifications the IRA used, which was obviously lapped up by useful idiots on both sides of the Irish Sea and across the Atlantic, their goal was always ethnic cleansing against their neighbours, the people who Americans still call “the Scots-Irish”.

Kennedy himself said that Ulster Protestants “should be given a decent opportunity to go back to Britain”, without in any way suggesting he would give Boston back to the Indians (or the English-Americans, for that matter) and return to Co. Wexford. He compared Britain’s presence in Ulster with America’s in Vietnam, and later forced Jimmy Carter to ban arm sales to the RUC, blackening the name of that tirelessly heroic band of men, each one of them worth a thousand spoiled Ivy League playboys.

Kennedy spoke out against violence in Northern Ireland while cosying up to IRA terrorists, the cause of the violence, ensuring Gerry Adams could visit the States in 1996 and celebrate that great festival of plastic patriotism and falseness, the American St Patrick’s Day Festival. He only later distanced himself from Sinn Fein/IRA after their goons murdered Robert McCartney and the American public woke up to the reality of “the boys”...

Thanks Linz...

I share your disgust for this empty-suit.

There's a single check mark in the positive side of the ledger of this creature's life.

I attended a lecture last year that documented the quest to discover a single-treatment drug to cure Malaria. It is being funded in no small way by Bill & Melinda Gates. The scientist credited Kennedy with helping to clear some of the red-tape they have faced and of helping to gain funding from both private and government sources. So there is the one and only genuinely good deed that I can attribute to Kennedy.

There, I've fufilled my mother's directive to find something nice to say about the deceased. And now I am freed from the gag of 'public decency for the deceased and his family,' I can state (as I often did when the prick was still breathing) that, in spite of this deed, he was a total scumbag.

The democRats can't wait to

Bosch Fawstin's picture

The democRats can't wait to use this death to help shove their exceedingly unpopular health care control bill down our throats, and Chris Mathews of softball sees this as an occasion to say that B.O. is the last Kennedy brother, saying it as if he's about to weep.

This parasite took all he could from America, giving it absolutely Nothing in return. But there will be those among us who still feel a need to pretend that this is some sort of loss to the country, to the world, even from those who can't stand him, all in the name of 'classiness.' Thanks for saying it as it is, Lindsay.

Kim Il Sung like sycophancy

Scott Wilson's picture

from the mainstream media. CNN and the Times both have clearly ignored any critical comments on their websites of the man.

He cheated at Harvard and was expelled along with the man who did the exam for him, and the family bought him a place back at Harvard (telling you the price of honour at Harvard), he talked about womens' rights when he showed the usual Kennedyesque interest in women for only one purpose, he undertook fundraising for the IRA in the 1970s (although later would damn them when he saw no further political advantage in funding Noraid). He went on about poverty and the disadvantaged, having not experienced a moment of poverty in his life, and so many cheer him on because he passed wheelbarrows of legislation.

He is everything that is wrong in US politics, a pork barrel roller, a cheater, liar and if not murderer, then a lowlife who let a woman die to save his reputation from being stained by his drunk driving and philandering.

It speaks volumes that the media will be wall to wall with the sort of praise and sycophancy that Kim Il Sung got in North Korea when he died in 1994 - at least the North Koreans who wrote it had the excuse that under totalitarianism it was what they had to do - in a free world surely people deserve something better.

For example, when Margaret Thatcher finally dies, I don't expect similar universal gushing sycophancy.

Very good, Lindsay!!

So much said with such economy. I wish a few around here could make so fine a point. Smiling
