Teddy's Brilliant Moment

Now this isn't revisionism, is it?

"If we got out," asked Tim Russert on NBC's "Meet the Press" recently, "and there was a civil war, chaos, and you saw al Qaeda moving in -- in record numbers -- would you go back in?"

Russert's guest, Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., replied, "Well, first of all, I heard the same kinds of suggestions at the time of the end of the Vietnam War. The 'Great Bloodbath,' we're going to have over 100,000 people that were going to be murdered and killed at that time. And for those of us who were strongly opposed to the war, [we] heard those same kinds of arguments."

The normally persistent Russert never challenged Kennedy's incredible assertion. Yet the bloodbath some predicted would occur -- if we withdrew from Vietnam -- did happen.

Um. There was a huge bloodbath. Both in Vietnam and Cambodia. Does "Boat People" puncture through that martini fueled glaze? This guy is just precious.

Read the rest of Larry Elder's piece on just how stupid Teddy has again shown himself to be.
