This guy has got to be the biggest asshat in politics today.
This idiot doesn’t know when to shut his fat mouth.
In my not so humble opinion, this guy is a traitor.
There is no if, ands, or buts about it.
He should be censured and removed in irons from the Senate floor, never allowed to return.
Here are a few examples of his treason from the Mobile Register.
“Kennedy’s calumnies have gone way too far
Saturday, May 15, 2004
Edward Kennedy ought to resign from the U.S. Senate.
Likewise, Sen. Kennedy’s protegé John Kerry ought to publicly disassociate himself from, and denounce in no uncertain terms, his mentor’s latest inflammatory remarks.
Sen. Kennedy has made a career of verbal attacks so vicious that few other politicians could get away with them. But the frequency and outrageousness of his cheap shots have increased in recent years — and this past Monday he outdid himself.
His remarks on the Senate floor were so obnoxious, so inexcusable, that no apology can make amends for them. In them, Sen. Kennedy had the gall to assert a moral equivalence between the routine brutality of Saddam Hussein’s regime and the humiliating, but exceptional, treatment of some Iraqi prisoners by their American guards.
Consider Mr. Kennedy’s statement: “Protection of the Iraqi people from the cruelty of Saddam had become one of the administration’s last remaining rationalizations for going to war. All of the other trumped-up rationalizations have collapsed. … On Dec. 24, 2003 — the day Saddam was captured — President Bush said, ‘For the vast majority of Iraqi citizens who wish to live as free men and women, this event brings further assurance that the torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever.’ On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked: ‘Who would prefer that Saddam’s torture chambers still be open?’ Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management — U.S. management.”
This comes on top of Mr. Kennedy saying last year that the entire war effort was a “fraud” undertaken for political advantage, while accusing President Bush of using “bribery” to secure the support of foreign leaders.
It comes on top of him calling judicial nominees “Neanderthals.” And on and on go the examples of his calumnies, including, most famously, when he slandered Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in 1987 thusly: “Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.”
This is all hate speech, pure and simple, coming from a man whose own moral compass has time and again been notoriously skewed.
Is there any doubt that this man should step down from the Senate?
There is no doubt in my mind.
