    Exactly. So what was the point of #5? To illustrate how much of a drunk he was? I dunno, maybe the 5 people who thanked that post can fill me in.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    But he never did grow up, Roadie. It's one thing to be wild in youth and quite another to keep that debauchery going by using your money and power well into your golden years.

    Maybe it's because of where I live. But since I was a kid, I've always heard the inside stories on the Kennedy clan. Sure, some of it is idle gossip, but a lot of it rang true.

    I can respect some of the Kennedys for their good & charitable works. Teddy was just a beast IMO.

    I already got the obligatory email about "the end of the kennedy dynasty", and just deleted it...


    Ted has already been assigned great social importance in association with his brothers, undeserved perhaps, but there is no changing it.

    It is ok to lionize the dead, not to demonize them.

    It is certainly too late to denigrate him in the eyes of the media. Besides, speaking ill of the dead, however truthful it may be, just makes those doing it look petty.

    His body is dead, let his manufactured image die in peace.

    Stirring this stew can only make the cook look like a petty and veangeful person.

    NO, it doesn't. No one will hold back when Bush dies. I don't care about Teddy or his family, and they don't care about mine.

    My only conclusion can be that you have a profound double standard for what you think is acceptable, what you consider being good Government policy and very selective sensitivity.

    When I see such double standards being applied coming from the Bush bashing Conservative haters, what also happens is that your credibility suffers.

    I am thinking your credibility is just about zero about now.
    Very well put, not perfect mind you, but well put just the same.

    If you want to have a politician as your hero, and mourn his death, at least pick a good one.
    Ted was a jerk in many ways, Bush is an idiot in many ways...
    His 8 years guaranteed a democrat in the white house. I said many times, if we get a democrat in the WH, the fault lies with the GOP...

    Now, his alcoholism is an issue in terms of reputation. That is a serious illness and he needed help. I wish he could have overcome that issue. If there is no proof that he was drunk during the bridge accident nor that he wasn't in shock though, I seem to remember that we consider people innocent until proven guilty in this country. Sounds like the family of the young lady saw him as forthright in the end.

    His record is exemplary and I will not go on to argue why. It's evident.

    If his comments about women are deserving of disdain, and I think they are, I would hope that you think the same about McCain. I'm a feminist and both sides should keep their anti-women garbage to themselves or get educated and learn something about women. It urks me when this happens.

    All of that said, his policy history is great and exemplary. He should be remembered for it.
    Seems that rose colored glasses are owned by both sides of the political spectrum...
