Two-faced Ted

Senator Ted Kennedy did his usual thing last week during the hearings for Supreme Court nominee, Judge Samuel Alito. He was critical of Judge Alito for belonging to a group when he was in college that Kennedy said discriminated against women.

While Kennedy grilled Alito for his misdeeds, he was hiding a truth. He was also a member of The Owl Club, a social club for Harvard alumni that does not allow membership of women. When asked the question if he was a member, he said he joined 52 years ago. He said, "I'm not a member, but I continue to pay about $100." Strange that he wasn't a member, but continued to pay his $100. A little hard to believe! He goes on to say he shouldn't be a member, that he should be getting out of it as fast as he can. Strange! But, then, Ted is a little strange.

Meanwhile, Kennedy admitted to Hiller that he himself probably couldn’t pass Judiciary Committee muster.
“Probably not . . . probably not,” Kennedy said.
Oh, if the voters in Massachusetts would take that to heart!
