Uncle Teddy endorses Obama: "To make America good again"

Ugh. On the one hand, you’ve got to love reading the news of Billy Jeff pleading and whining with Uncle Teddy not to endorse Hill’s nemesis.

On the other hand, watching the spectacle of the Kennedy clan anointing their Chosen One as the man “to make America good again” (and what would Teddy Kennedy know about that?)–and watching Caroline Kennedy praise her uncle as a champion of the little people, a champion of civil rights, and a champion of “men and women in uniform” (what?!)–is like Ipecac for the eyes and ears.

Kennedy just referred to the “better angels of our nature.” Again: What would he know about that?

My eyes. My ears.

1:13pm Eastern. He’s still talking. Lots of anti-Clinton jabs: “Let us reject the counsels of doubt and calculation.” Knocks “petty” and “stale” politics.

Sen. Windbag stiiiill going: “I love this country…I know what America can achieve. I’ve seen it. I’ve lived it…with Barack Obama, we can do it again…I know he’s ready to be president from Day One…I believe a waaaaaave of change is setting across America-er…It is time now for Barack Obama.”

Oh, gawd. The Kennedys all look so smug and self-satisfied and patronizing. Ick, ick.

On MSNBC, Chris Matthews says it’s like the 1960s all over again.

Obama thanks “all the Kennedys…for the service you’ve rendered to this country…I know the cherished place the Kennedys hold in the hearts of the American people….the Kennedy family has always stood for what’s best about the Democratic Party and what’s best about America…”

Obama praises Teddy K for “lifting the country up” rather than “tearing political opponents down.”


Flashback: Teddy K and The Owl Club.
Flashback: Teddy K’s unhinged diatribe against Sam Alito
Flashback: Kennedy’s shamnesty “Gestapo” rant

At least Kennedy succeeded in avoiding another Osama-Obama bungle…

1:33pm Eastern. Flipping through the cable stations, there’s a lot of breathless chatter about this “monumental,” “breathtaking,” “historic” moment.

I agree with “breath-taking.”

Well, breath-wasting, anyway.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s got the all important Janet Reno endorsement.
