This sack of Shit should talk...
Instead of bellyaching about it, why don't the people of Massachusetts do everyone a favor and quit electing the big fat buffon?

`Pit bull' Kennedy goes step too far
By Boston Herald editorial staff

On Monday Sen. Ted Kennedy, designated pit bull for the Kerry campaign, said, "Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam, and this country needs a new president.''
By Wednesday the theme had been picked up by none other than radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, who issued a statement saying, "I call upon the American people to stand beside their brethren, the Iraqi people, who are suffering an injustice by your rulers and the occupying army, to help them in the transfer of power to honest Iraqis. Otherwise, Iraq will be another Vietnam for America and the occupiers.''
Of course, al-Sadr is wanted for murder and his militia continue to attack U.S. troops. But heck, he and the senior senator from Massachusetts have found common ground. Isn't that special!
Since Sunday, nearly three dozen Americans and other coalition soldiers have lost their lives. But what are young Americans returning home in body bags to Ted Kennedy, when there are political points to be scored.
Imagine the pain that the families of those latest casualties - like the family of Providence native Matthew Serio, a 21-year-old Marine killed in a firefight in Fallujah Monday - are already coping with. And then imagine the pain of knowing that at the moment their son was fighting and dying for his country, Ted Kennedy was in Washington calling Iraq a "misguidedwar'' that has "made America more hated in the world and made the war on terrorism harder to win.''
In a more civil era, it was considered political suicide to say the kind of things Ted Kennedy said this week while young Americans were dying on foreign soil. But no such sense of propriety or sympathy for the families of the fallen enters into Kennedy's thinking - not when there are political points to be scored against George W. Bush.
"A year after the war began, Americans are questioning why the administration went to war in Iraq, when Iraq was not an imminent threat,'' Kennedy said, conveniently forgetting that it is not an administration that goes to war, it is a nation - this nation in a move authorized by the Congress. Today some 135,000 U.S. military men and women are still on the ground in Iraq.
Yet in his unrelenting effort to put John Kerry [related, bio] in the White House, Kennedy belittles the efforts of those troops, while giving aid, comfort and his best lines to the likes of a murdering thug like al-Sadr.
With people like Kennedy in his corner, Kerry won't need enemies.
