    Somebody may be preemptively upset at how his passing after a life of self-aggrandizing, pill-popping uselessness will be relatively unmourned. One could, by comparison, look at Father Coughlin vs. FDR.

  2. Dave Schuler says:

    As I’ve said before, we live in a graceless era.

  3. Rick Almeida says:

    I’m sorry, but that made me laugh when I read it. Graceless, maybe, but clever.

  4. Clovis says:

    Well, Pelosi was calling for us to pass H.R. 3200 in Kennedy’s honor at 2:30 a.m.

    Is two hours and change after his death too soon to begin pimping it?

  5. Wayne says:

    Rush is just pointing out the obvious. I would agree that those grieving should be afforded a grace period but that hasn’t been the case for Republicans including Nixon. Also there should be a grace period before stunts like Pelosi’s.

    Remembering the good things about a recently decease is fine but it can be overdone and claiming someone as a Saint when they weren’t, is begging for rebuttal. . Also it shouldn’t be use as an opportunity to slam others. I good way to avoid a fight at a funeral is to not pick a fight. That goes for both sides.

    I take my hat off to Ted and his family even though I disagree with many of their policies. May he rest in peace.

    Also it shouldn’t be use as an opportunity to slam others.

    And yet, Kennedy’s death is certainly being used as an opportunity by many commentators on this blog to slam him…oh well, I’m sure Limbaugh will receive similar treatment when he dies, whether it be of a drug overdose, heart attack, etc…I’m sure we’ll hear all about his drug addiction and his hypocritical stand towards other drug addicts, as well as his avoidance of the Vietnam War because of a cyst on his ass, among many of his other valuable contributions to humanity…

  7. G.A.Phillips says:

    Oh noooooo Rush told the truth again….Bad timing,er…could be..Yes…

    I have sympathy for his tragedy stricken family,and I pray that God will ease their pain.

    We all have many sins to live with and fight against, some for the rest of our lives.

    R.I.P. Senator.I hope and pray you find peace in your long sleep and make it to the resurrection.

  8. Wayne says:

    You prove my point. Once again a liberal is using a death as excuse to bash others. I have little doubt that liberals like you will be anywhere near civil when Rush die. A typical liberal, demanding that of others which they themselves are unwilling to do.

  9. crumja says:

    Well, you can argue that since Rush hasn’t died yet, any uncivil act then would be in retaliation for things like this.

    Yes, what I did was so very horrible, so much worse than using a death to bash the person who has died…your selective concern for civility is so touching…

    Why don’t you defend Uncle Teddy to Mary jo’s surviving family members? How about telling the truth about this icon of the Democratic party. His family gained wealth through bootlegging which was illegal at the time. They hold themselves to be American royalty yet all they seem to give is ours. Kennedy committed treason when he offered to help the Soviet Union oppose Ronald Reagan. If you do not believe it read the KGB documents on the topic. Circa 1983. Kennedy is currently enjoying the eternal flames needed to warm his cold heart, in hell.
