Kennedy’s death Compared to September 11th

August 27, 2009


Sadly, I’m not kidding.

It feels a bit like 9/11 on Martha’s Vineyard. End-of-summer weather is achingly beautiful but the mood is melancholy because of Teddy.

I don’t care what your opinion is regarding Ted Kennedy; Even if you are a groveling boot-licker, there is NO way in hell that the death of a 77 year old man, from natural causes, can be compared to the worst act of terrorism on our soil, an evil act resulting in the horrific and painful deaths of thousands of innocent people and continuing to result in deaths as we are *still* at War.

Dear Matt Cooper (formerly of Time Magazine and now working for Talking Points Memo): Aww, are you feeling icky poo? Did it harsh your mellow?

September 11th is not equivalent to that. That you even *think* of the two things at the same time is a testament to your delusional existence.

I was actually struck speechless when I read it… if only Matt Cooper had been as well.

I hope the families of any of the victims of September 11th don’t read his asinine, odious and disgustingly thoughtless comment.

P.S. Dan Collins, of Piece of Work In Progress, makes an excellent point:

vermontaigne @snarkandboobs  Major difference:  Kennedy got bombed voluntarily


Matt Cooper trying to cover:

Didn’t mean to equate Teddy’s death with the murders of 9/11. Only meant small similarity: beautiful weather, tragic feel.

Even does a poor job of trying to back-pedal. Same “Tragic” feel?

Aww, poor Matt.. What else is “tragic”?: “My Mommy never let me lick the cake bowl. Made me feel icky like when that 9/11 stuff happened. Woe is me” or “My GPS broke; reminded me of when those planes flew into those buildings by accident and stuff. Me sad”

    Some on the left are just sick. Ted was a horrible human being who died at age 77 of cancer. Comparing the brutal end of 3000 innocent lives to the long awaited death of a man who ENJOYED hearing and telling Chappaquiddick jokes, is fucking insane. Some horse cocked bastard needs to pop out one of my eyes and skull fuck me so I can be as mentally deficient as Matt Cooper.

      ZOMG! But what about Camelot!?! You H8tr!

        If they get to bring up Camelot, we get to bring up the lady in the lake.

          Though the modern Lady in the Lake is the one who took away the once-and-future-would-be-king’s right to rule, rather than giving it to him.

          Oh, the irony.

    *facepalm* no…. *face-bang-on-keyboard*
    The latter is more appropriate
