As soon as we learned that Ted Kennedy died, we knew our Reppies would be as happy as a Jesuit at a witch roast. Then, nobody has ever accused them of following Thumper's Rule: "If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all."
After we read Bummy's comments on Mass Sen. Ted Kennedy Dies we knew we had our winner, so we didn't bother to collect any additional words of condolence. We now regret our decision, since the thread has been closed.
YES YES YES!!!!!! HE HAS FINALLY GONE TO SPIRIT PRISON WITH THE REST OF HIS WICKED FAMILY! HE SHOULD HAVE DIED IN THAT CAR WITH MARY JO, BUT I AM GLAD NOW THAT HE SUFFERED BEFORE HE WENT. THANK THEE LORD FOR GETTING ONE MEAN WICKED PERSON OFF OF THIS EARTH & NOT TOO SOON. THANK THEE LORD!
followed a while later, in the wake of complaints:
THERE WE GO! LOOKING FOR SOME GOOFY LITTLE THING TO TRY & CUT ME DOWN 'CAUSE OF THR REAL TRUTH I TYPE IN. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE MY CAPITOL LETTERS, WHICH I NEVER SEE ANYONE COMPLAIN ABOUT THEM WHEN SOME ONE ELSE USES THEM, THEN JUST SKIP ON PAST MY COMMENTS, 1/2 WIT. THIS PERSON, TED, COULD NOT SMELL WHERE RONALD REAGAN WENT TO THE BATH ROOM. NOW THAT IS NOT AS BAD TO SAY AS PACKING SAND, SO THERE IS NO LOGICAL REASON FOR THIS NOT TO BE POSTED, & IF IS TOO HOT HERE FOR YOU LEFTIES TO HEAR THE REAL TRUTH, THEN DO NOT COME TO THIS SITE FOR A FEW DAYS, 'CAUSE YOU WILL SEE JUST AS MUCH OF WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO READ AS WE WILL. STIFFEN UP YOUR little LIPS & CRY IN YOUR HANKIES, BUT BE A BIG ENOUGH PERSON TO NOT RIDECULE ME FOR USING MY LARFGE LETTERS TO CELEBRATE A GREAT CAUSE!:) THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR LETTING ME SHOW MY JOY OVER THIS GREAT EVEVT. MAY BOBBY BYRD BE THE NEXT TO GO START HIS PUNISHMENT FOR HIS EVIL DEEDS TOO
We can't forget, however, a new contestant, JBern500 in an accompanying thread, Republicans Join Democrats in Mourning Kennedy.
Let us all remember Ted Kennedy for what he really was and that my friends was a drunk and murderer. He also never worked a real job in his entire life and lived a very extravagant lifestyle off of the tax payers money, that would be you and I. Why is the press making him out to be this great saint and how wonderful he was for this country, you might want to ask the relatives of Mary Jo Kopechne. For those of you who don't know Mary Jo Kopechne, she is woman that Ted Kennedy left to die in the pond on Chappaquiddick Island on Martha's Vineyard.
For sheer meanness of spirit, not to mention poor netiquette, we name Bummy, once more, Village Idiot of the Day, August 26, 2009. (Award #6 We're sure he can make it an even dozen by the end of the year.)
We'd give a pass to JBern500, except for the crack that the job of US Senator is easy, if existent at all. We suggest s/he try it for awhile. There's an opening in Massachusetts right now. Since we doubt JBern500 will take the job, even if offered, we offer an Honorable Mention in its stead.
We also note that when John F. Kennedy was assassinated, people cheered that, too.
