One Year Ago Today At The Other McCain… [Updated Below]

26 August 2010 @ 14:02

One year ago last night, The Lie-On of The Senate, Edward Moore Kennedy died.

Today many sycophants and Bolshes are, once again, fondly remembering old Fat Boy, as columnist Howie Carr once called him.

Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.

UPDATE at 1659…

Gonzo-lanche!

The Zing Of The Day is awarded to Roxeanne de Luca, mistress of Haemet, for this witty retort in the Comments Section:

Maybe, somewhere in the afterlife, Teddy is watching Scott Brown vote against Elena Kagan and thinking, “Wow, that was a really inopportune time for my conscience to eat its way through my brain”.

UPDATE at 2021…

A celebration of this day would be incomplete if we didn’t republish this classic National Lampoon ad:

    Yeah… I’ve spent this year in grief, too, recovering slowly – hoping for closure…

    Reminds me of the day I was taking my kid for a walk through Central Park and blundered upon that horrible “IMAGINE” plaque. It was surrounded by a lot of grey-haired pony-tailed maggot-infested worn-jean hippies standing about the circle, each feigning loss and remorse more deeply felt than the dopester beside them. My eyes lit up, and I had to suppress nose-flair and a laugh – I was choking as I hurriedly moved my daughter past the gaggle into the path leading to CP West. “Daddy, who were they?”

    They are not the future, hon. You are.

      Ran: It’s important that your child experienced that bit of Tough Love.

    Has it only been a year?
    Time flies when we’re trying to save America from annihilation!
    He should be a nice, crispy brown by now, from all that roasting in HELL!

      Bunni: I prefer to think that his punishment is to experience drowning over and over and over again.
