Ted Kennedy, who has probably sucker punched the Grim Reaper more times than John McCain has houses, is dead.

"Edward M. Kennedy, the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply, died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port (Massachusetts)," the Kennedy family said in a statement.

One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008.

"We've lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever," the family statement said.

"He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it. He always believed that our best days were still ahead, but it's hard to imagine any of them without him," the family added.

His death marked the twilight of a political dynasty and dealt a blow to Democrats as they seek to answer President Barack Obama's call for an overhaul of the healthcare system. Kennedy had made healthcare reform his signature cause.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said in a statement the Kennedy family and Senate "have together lost our patriarch."




Farewell you wonderful, bloated man.

    Hey look, my thread is easier to find.

    I regret nothing. If people don't want duplicate threads, they'd have titles that had anything to do with the subject.

  • I had no idea people liked this guy that much

    I've got a feeling that most people around here like him because he pissed off republicans more than for anything he actually did

    I mean not that everybody feels that way of course but I'm sure that's a big part of it

    When I made light of the fact that District 9's prawns were thinly veiled (if veiled at all) metaphor's for negative perceptions of black people, I was not putting down the movie. I quite liked the movie.

    I did think that they were hitting you over the head a bit when a lady complained that prawns would check the brand of sneakers you were wearing, and then kill you for them.

    I hope it's better than the last one, which I thought was such a waste of $.

    It's just a bunch of combat scenarios. Which is kind of cool, I guess, and it's only $5. I got it for Rachel (and the premium them too) because I think I would have been lynched if I hadn't
    Sounds cool, let me know what you think after you've finished it. Did you guys like the previous one?

    She says 'it was alright'. But we only paid $5 for that too, so any disappointment with it may have been lessened.

    This reminds me that I really need to play Mass Effect.

    So now all we're going to hear about in the news is the bridge fiasco and I'll bet $50 that Glenn Beck blames the Micheal Jackson homicide on Ted Kennedy.

    Part of the problem with me playing Mass Effect is that I've seen Rachel play through it so many times that I know pretty much everything that happens

    It was kind of dumb that he called his parents first, though...

    but this isn't really the time considering we've had years to bring that up previous to his death I suppose

    The last locked thread

    I sat near two different people reading Glenn Beck's books and trying to discuss them flying to California last week
    One of the men was French

    I have a feeling someone will try to put Obama's vacation and Ted Kennedy's death together and toss in the health care issues for fun

    Yeah, I mean, good dude, and it's sad to see him go.

    But folks are acting shocked like there weren't already three other times when we thought he was going to die the next day.

    Really, if you approached me asking for money I'd likely verbally abuse you and if you were still persistent, I'd just palm-strike your nose

    It is kinda sad he didn't get to see this health care thing come to point he would have been happy with but I think that dream was a little unrealistic
