We look after our own...

"President Obama was leading the tributes, saying that Senator Kennedy was the greatest US senator of our time.

But the praise was coming from right across the political divide. The Republicans were also praising him, saying that he was the kind of man that you couldn't help but like even if you disagreed with him.

That kind of praise has been echoing across the morning shows - they all broke into special coverage of the kind that is normally reserved for when former presidents die.

But of course all of the coverage has also included the controversies in Edward Kennedy's life, not least of all the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick bridge in 1969."

Personally I say buh bye Teddy boy, you should have died sooner. Now we have Nanci Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Henry Waxman, and probably a few more. Teddy had the brain cancer was it? For that group of winners I'm hoping anal cancer.

I don't miss the bastard one little bit, Rab, I mean this IS the same Teddy Kennedy who raised funds for the IRA for years, isn't it?! God only knows what else he got up to, apart from driving off a bridge while pissed out of his head!

Dillinger and Spider seconded. Pity he didn't die sooner. He'd have left both the US and the UK far, far better places if he'd drowned in his car the drunken, lying, terrorist supporting self serving, parasitic cunt.

Being lauded by a bunch of cunts doesn't detract from the fact that he was a cunt.

One of Brown's heroes - a liar, a cheat, a coward who left a young woman to drown, a supporter of terrorists. Says it all really about both of them.

Bollocks. Only brain cancer. Not much to eat into.
I think his favourite line was " Hi Gorgeous. Can you swim ? "
