Just One More

I’m going to get away from this topic somehow. But just one more time. This isn’t from some Republican enemy, this was on NPR, it’s an interview with one of Ted Kennedy’s friends. Ed Klein, former Newsweek editor. The show was titled “Reflections on Sen. Kennedy … Lion of the Senate”. It was on the Diane Rehm Show. In this audio clip, Ed Klein is reminiscing about Teddy’s sense of humor.
Well, okay. Here’s a few.

Q: What was Gary Hart’s biggest mistake?
A: Not letting Teddy Kennedy drive Donna Rice home.

Did you hear that Kennedy had actually died on August 24th? In keeping with tradition, the family didn’t report it until the next day.

When they were selecting music for the funeral, the family wanted something from the 60’s, so they went with “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.


It a dark, gallows, sort of humor. You find it in Marines, emergency room staff, policemen, and the like. I’m sure Teddy would have laughed as warmly at them as he did all the others.

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”
–Charles M. Schulz

  1. Wow! Just grab the spinning axle and don't let go! This guy exemplifies what is wrong with America. How did he keep getting elected to public office? I have no clue.
