    The Kennedys are awesome. I wish him well and hope hes around to see Obama get elected.

  2. 2

    If anyone can bring the party together through his inspiring showing…It is Ted Kennedy…He is an end of an era. Long may he live.

    why is everyone glorifying him! I understand he has cancer… that is sad no doubt. but the man has done nothing good for this country just giving us more corruption and greed!

    Very Inspiring..for a guy who left a woman at the bottom of a lake to die

    I'm so tired of this guy, yeah he has cancer, we KNOW! Oh and he's a kennedy…

    Why do you care? He's not GAY and he's not 12 so why cover it?

  9. 9

    Ugh. Over it, Perez! You are such a political hypocrite. WHile I do feel sad for his family about his health, your biased fawning over anyone with a (D) attached to their name is getting ridiculous. When are you going to start thinking for yourself and stop being fed thoughts?

  10. 10

    Burn in Hell!! Teddy and Perez oh, and the other Teddy(Perez's Queer dog) If their was a time for a massive nuclear terrorist attack, Lord, let it happen this week in Denver!!!!

    Teddy boy is going to die…he's got mets to the brain=die. I wonder if he'll make a death bed confession re: Mary Jo? Hmmmmm.

  12. 12

    So sad he has cancer, but he is still a drunk douche-bag who has spent way to long in the Senate.

    Re: Novel1 – Now that was funny.

  14. 14

    Fawn away Lefties…for your alcoholic, manslaugtering hero has arrived! Feign compassion for his health situation, just like John Edwards parlayed into sympathy for the "love of his life." DUDE IS A MORALLY BANKRUPT, DRUNKEN BOOB! (And my barometer for evaluating others' moral compasses is set to "LOW.")

    Re: julietahola – All I can say is…..word. Ted has a special place reserved for him in Hell.

  16. 16

    Ted Kennedy had made terrible, terrible mistakes in his life, no doubt. But to wipe out all the good he HAS done for middle-class Americans, is just ignorant. Read up on the man and appreciate all he has done for us, instead of just throwing stones.

  17. 17

    Re: julietahola – YUP.

  18. 18

    Thank you, Perez. Truly inspiring. I am so proud of being from Massachusetts, from New England, and stuffing EMK literature in people's mailbox from the time I was a little girl (pushed by my Irish-born Grandma). But I realize he has become bigger than our little corner of America. Through his foresight and ideals (that those on the far right still laugh at) he has truly brought all in the USA the wonderful life we now enjoy in the 21st century.

  20. 20

    I agree with Mamma to all. True dat.

  21. 21

    I think you're great, Perez, but wish you'd be more neutral. When it comes to politics, you have a great forum - and should use it wisely. Please speak honestly about both candidates. It's freedom of choice, not persuasion.

  22. 22

    Re: ilonarose

    ilonarose- great statement. *sigh* the end of an era… what a person to usher in the new era, what a bridge.

    the kennedy's are extremely inspiring. so what if they're human and flawed.

    get educated and get inspired people!

  23. 23

    Wow, what an idiot.

  24. 24

    I love you, Perez, but don't like you being so liberal. Give people the choice to make their own opinion - you should be more open to both sides of politics. It's a choice - not a persuasion.

  25. 25

    That was a great speech! The only person he has to answer to is our lord.
    I am sure he is aware of that.

  26. 26

    Re: State ziti – I think you sinned right in that statement, Mr. Holier Than Thou.

  27. 27

    It was hilarious when Caroline said something about talking to people who said they wanted the hope back from when her father was president (for all of 3 very crap years). Who was she talking to? People in their late 60s and older??? I kid you NOT. Republicans did the civil rights legislations while the southern dems were in hoods. How easily history is rewritten! Ted Kennedy used tax dollars to pay for the BIG DIG in Boston- he wouldn't allow wind turbines in Hyannis because they would BLOCK HIS VIEW. God, perez, DO YOUR HOMEWORK since you are too young to know about the Kennedys. They are crap. Their money is from bootlegging and corruption.

  28. 28

    Re: sheba08 – Right on! No one on this site who is pontificating about how he should be condemned to hell have any idea what has transpired between him and his God. And this may come as a shock to some here, but you and I are not his God. We really just aren't.

    John Edwards, Bill Clinton, JF Kennedy, Ted Kennedy- They are all a bunch of
    shady men that used lies to manipulate their wife and worst of all, their country….And wait, Barack will emulate them all!

    Those are the heroes of the party? Very sad day for America.-

  32. 32

    How about a history lesson for you? LBJ (D) signed Civil rights into law because he felt pressured with all the sentiment Kennedy created for it. Everyone knows the great turnaround in civil rights began with JFK and RFK. I am only in my 40s and I am someone Caroline is talking about. Do YOUR homework. Dear God! Where do you GET this information? Please tell us. Are you from the South or something? If you don't mind embarrassing yourself we'd all like to know. I read this site and wonder where nuts like you come from. Good for the LOLs, however!! : ) Please, please for a good joke, also name these great "civil-rights" Republicans!!

    Re: Milk Mans Daughter – Huh? You don't even know me. Sorry. Not so clever sweetheart.

  34. strue says – reply to this


    Although Perez is a strong democrat and makes that clear in all that he posts, this tribute should have been inspiring to all patriotic americans. Not only has Ted Kennedy provided strong, helpful solutions to many issues the United States suffer, he has also participated in more community service activities and programs than most can say they have. Ted Kennedy, is obviously known for his last name but also for what he has given back to our country. Before all of the downers on this post go talking, watch the tribute (with an open mind you say Perez doesnt have) and then decide whether you should go talking horribly about a man with a big heart who is physically suffering.

  38. 38

    One night in 1969, after a night of drinking he cowardly left Mary Jo Kopechne in the waters underneath the Edgartown Bridge, She was left to die. And that was the reason Sen. Ted Kennedy had to abandon his presidential bid in 1980. This "Conscience of the Democratic" tried to get his cousin Joe Garghan to say he was behind the wheel. This Senator was thrown out of Harvard 15 years earlier for paying a fellow student to take his Spanish final.

    The Democratic Party should be ashamed to have the national disgrace from Massachusetts as their hero.

    Re: LoveyHowell
    Well, really I don't have to know you to say that it DID come as
    a HUGE shock when you said that neither you nor I are his God.
    I mean, how can you be so sure?
    And yes, we've all heard only God can judge, so maybe you can
    come up with something less cliche, or something, I don't know.

    Re: strue – His heart wasn't big enough to save Mary Jo Kopechne, but I guess that's ok, right? [/sarcasm]

  47. 47

    Say what you will about him, but seriously, how can anybody be a Republican at this point? I think Bill Maher said it best in his stand-up I was lucky enough to see a couple of weeks ago– anyone who thinks G.W.B. has done a good job is devoid of any kind of intelligence, doesn't read, isn't aware of anything (and trust me, I live in AZ… these people are actually more common than you'd think).

    PS. People have balls telling Perez to be nice to the Republicans, considering they don't think he deserves the same rights as everyone else.

    I watched the Kennedy speech on telly, and I gotta say, wow, total inspiration, although I really wish he was speaking for Hillary Clinton. The Obama-Biden ticket, ugh, what was he thinking, some old guy to be the Veep? Damn, you Americans got it going bad for November!

  51. 51

    Wonderful,Wonderful,Wonderful! Truly a Man of America God Bless Him I wish him well. Oh sooo inspiring to all.

  52. 52

    Some of these morons with their comments make me laugh. I'm surprised they even watched the video, Oh maybe they didn't. ALL Ignorant, and happy being that way.If they only knew the real story. And, he's made this country a better place to be in, but what would these crack asses know about country. They probably aren't registered and never voted LOL in their lives. Oh and most importantly i forgot they are all perfect in their daily lives past and present. Hah

    Re: COCACOLA – You conveniently forget all the fuck-ups of W! Ha! What ever suits your needs at the time Cocacola! You are properly named after a corrosive material. At least you got that right!

  54. 54

    Don't delete my comments Perez. Answer the hard questions you ask others. If you can draw dicks in people's mouths, tell us about the one in yours. If people have jiz dropping from their lips, where does it drop from you? You like oral, anal, what?

    I guess you are a top since you can't take it but you can give it.

  55. 55

    Sorry I got sucked into that negative bullshit!

    That was one of the most inspiring moments I have ever witnessed politically! Thank you Perez for showing it to those of us who missed it the first time around! I did see Michael Obama however and she was AMAZING! Keep the hope alive! OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA!!!

  56. 56

    Perez, reporters or commentators or whatever you believe that you are only get a privacy when they report. Once they get their heads and egos full of themselves and start being part of the story, then they are no less of a target of your kind of entertainment than your victims have been over the years.

    Don't be a smug hypocrite and pretend you can do unto others but not have it done unto you. I'd love it if the "stars" you make fun of would gang up on you and have you hounded day and night and ridiculed.

    Think about it

  57. 57

    Why should we be tributing a known murderer? I mean Ted did end up causing the death of a young lady to save his own ass.

    YAY what a guy. And the rest of the Kennedy clan with their rape trials and other shenanigans.

    No the Kennedy family isn't great. They made their money illegally.

    He hasn't done shit but prop up his own exaggerated claims. He was expected to run for office but his past and present shady dealings has stopped him from doing so knowing they would come to light.

    People who follow the Kennedys like they were something important or great people are sheeple.

    They got to be so "great" buy illegally selling whisky during prohibition. Had they not done that, they'd be NOTHING. NOTHING.

  61. 61

    I remember back in 1980 when he and the rest of the clan crapped on Jimmy Carter. Teddy was running all over the stage, trying to avoid having Jimmy's handshake. The really cool thing that could have happened tonight is if Mary Jo Kopechne's drenched ghostly image would have walked up from that back of the arean, onto the stage, and bit the motherfucker's cock off.

    yez…letz celebrate a man that was mobbed up
    and let his cheating azz girlfriend die in his car…

  63. 63

    Word is that 3 men were arrested last night in a plot to kill obama. The news just reported it. They said they were found with a high power rifle with a scope. However, Dever cops don't want us to know and is saying that they were arrested on drugs. It still went national. Ted Kennedy, what is he good for. Cheating and being in a mob….oh yea, and murder. Nice guy you picked there obama to talk for you. Stupid cunt.

  64. 64

    correction: Denver
    Colorado is a bad place for a convention for obama, coz that is white boy country. What are they nuts?

    What is wrong with you people? This guy is the biggest douche ever!

    The asshole let a woman die for his damn career! Educate yourselves. I'm amazed at your stupidity.

  66. Minx says – reply to this


    Some of you that are so self righteous kill me! I doubt 80% of you even watched the montage, you just went into attack mode. First you talk as if the death of Mary Jo was intentional, it's called an accident and it happens EVERY SINGLE DAY. As for him "getting away w/ murder" how many accidents have happened in this country resulting in death that people walked away free and clear? Should he be free and clear? That's up to debate but get one thing straight, there's a difference between a reckless accident and out right murder.
    Bootlegging: Tell me ONE old $ American Family that came by their wealth honestly? Look at Cindy McCain's own father! You talk about mob ties and illegal bootlegging go google James Hensley, Cindy's father, convicted of 7 counts of false liquor records and racketeering not to mention his own mob ties. While your at it look up David Rockefeller, the est. of Jack Daniels, every Old American ELite. It's not a stretch to say that at the top, America, is total corruption.
    Should we hold Cindy responsable for her father's dirty deeds? No! So why the hell are we holding Ted Kennedy responsable for his forefathers?

  67. 67

    Uninspiring. Total Democratic bullshit, yet again. Teddy is one of he biggest douche bags to come out of the Democratic party. He will burn in hell for the actions he has taken. I do not feel one ounch of pity for the man. Karma is a bitch and he is feeling it now.

  68. 68

    Mary Jo Kopechne!Mary Jo Kopechne!
    Mary Jo Kopechne!Mary Jo Kopechne!

    I missed this part of the convention. Did they show Teddy's car being pulled out of the water with the DEAD GIRL inside.

  70. Honey says – reply to this


    All I can say is KARMA BABY!! This man deserves everything he's getting. He left that poor girl Mary Jo to die so long ago. He is by no means a "great guy" or an asset to this country. He's a coward.

  71. 71

    Re: JoeyOh
    Hey Joe, you got it all wrong…The reason we critized Kennedy is because we are INFORMED, we know what he did in 68 and even before that time. Kennedy's money buys the best lawyers in the country…And they sure need them. Some of them are convicted felons, remember Martha?

    And talking about intelligence, it's a sad day in America when Caroline Kennedy endorse a man who have done NOTHING for Ameirca. A man who called Rev Wright his "Mentor and spiritual advisor". Obama is an empty suit. He's a first term Senator who has not had a single piece of meaninful legislation passed. His best gift is making speeches that say nothing. He's a Cult of Personality who is an embarrassment for anyone running for President. The Audacity of Ignorance. !!!!!!!!!

    Don't accuse me of being a attach dog. Ted Kennedy is:
    1. A known drunk.
    2. Screwed every thing in site. He would screw a snake if he could get someone to hold its head.
    3. He left his first wife and go remarried. He is a Catholic that is against his Ctholic faith.
    4. He shows his nephews how to get drunk and screw anthing in site.
    5. Ran home, did not notify police for over 12 hours and left a girl to drown in his car.
    The list goes on and on for this piece of crap. They say he is for the poor, especially the blacks, but every club or organization he or his clan belongs to does not allow any color except WHITE. If you are not white, you can wash dishes, clean floor, work in the bathrooms, etc.

    Teddy! Well done. I'm not a huge Kennedy worshipper, but the man has fought for civil rights legislation, education, health care, peace and many other things I believe in. I thought the speech was great.
    But you all calling him a murderer for that car accident - you know Laura Bush killed someone in a car accident, too, right? But even though the "left-wing" media has taught you to repeat Mary Jo Kopechne's name again and again like parrots, they never taught you to ditto the name Michael Dutton Douglas, did they? Nothing against Laura Bush, she's been a fine First Lady and a credit to the USA, I like her. But you all are being silly hypocrites, and have fallen into a media bias trap. Do research and think for yourselves, people!

    If drunken Ted Kennedy is the most inspirational thing that the Dems have, they are in trouble. No vision….just greedy, lying bastards who want to tax and control everything. It's so pathetic how some Americans look at the Kennedys as royalty. What, a bunch of lying, pathetic cheaters. None of the men can keep it in their pants. While JFK was dicking every broad out there, Jackie was spending 3x his presidential salary on her wardrobe. What a bunch of hypocrites.

  83. 83

    Have you all forgotten about the summer of 1969 and Chappaquiddick? This "inspiring" man left a young woman by the name of Mary Jo Kopechne in his overturned car to drown in a tidal channel. He waited over 12 hours before going to the police, after he was informed that his car and the body of Mary Jo were found. He was found guilty for leaving the scene of an accident and sentenced to two months in jail, the state minimum, which was immediately suspended by the judge. You do the math.

    Re: The Warden Again, Malario. You have NO clue about politics other than you will blindly vote for anyone that will say they are for GAY rights.Talk about being a slave.
    And Obama's voting history on that speaks for itself. In other words. NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE.

    Having said that, I am all for gays having the same rights I guess. When did we start failing as a society when we start accepting mental illnesses as normal behavior? Yes I know that homosexuality was taken out of the book of mental illnesses, but it was only done so for politically correct reasons. And if you are going to use that, you'll also have to accept that gays can change. Because they man that was mainly responsible for taking homosexuality off the mental disorder list also believes homosexuals can change to heterosexuals if they so want to. He has proof of such a thing.

    Can't have your cake and eat it too I guess. Oh and the 10% of the population being gay is also a hoax. That number was shot down long ago. The more realistic number is 2-4%. Right along with most mental disorders…

    Having said that, being mean or jerks to people just because they are gay makes you a parasite.

    Re: friendlyskies But you all calling him a murderer for that car accident - you know Laura Bush killed someone in a car accident, too, right?
    Totally different incidents. One involved alcohol, one did not. Laura couldn't have done anything to save the person in the accident. Kennedy could have, but did nothing because he was more worried about his rep.

    I am not attacking him for someone dying in a accident he was in. I am attacking him because of the way HE HANDLED IT.

    Accidents are accidents. I don't think he was TRYING to kill her. That was just a result of him trying to cover up the whole thing.

    THAT is what makes him slime. Just like Bill Clinton getting a blowjob is no big deal. But him lying under oath, and making an innocent girl, who he was HIRED to protect, out to be some sort of lying whore, that is what the country got mad about. Not the BJ.

    So yeah, not even the same. Sorry that didn't work out the way you planned it to.

    I thought the video was beautiful and made me feel very hopeful. Enough with the whole Mary Jo thing… GOD! People will take the one little thing they know about Ted Kennedy (or maybe didn't even know, but repeated what was already posted) and run a mile with it. A lot of people are being very judgmental about Kennedy's past, which is frankly, none of people's business or concern. Everyone has that horrible secret, that skeleton in the closet, that you don't want everyone to know. People are human, what a concept! Many of our political leaders made questionable choices as young people, not because they were morally bankrupt, but because they were INEXPERIENCED and I'm sure they didn't think about how it would affect them in the future. In my experience, most young people live in the moment and don't think about someday running for president/congress while they're doing bong rips in their college dorm rooms. There's no need to bring others down because you have low self-esteem.

  99. 99

    Re: friendlyskies – Actually, accidents do happen but the people who cause them don't usually run away from the scene and hide for a day until they can talk to their lawyers and then lie about it all. Then recant the lies and show no remorse. I would say that is a little different than the 1st lady's car accident. One had character, the other had ambition.

  100. 100

    Screw the Kennedy's and their broken down shithole of a house.
    They walk all over people. That's why they pay so hard with family members.
