    RIP Ted Kennedy

    I know this is a Boston sports blog and that we spend a lot of time talking about how Tom Brady's injury will impact the New England Patriots season or whether or not David Ortiz's career is over, but Tim and I are both passionate about politics as well and when it comes to Massachusetts politics there was no other like Edward M Kennedy.

    I haven't discussed it with Tim, but I can be 100% sure that we both disagree on Uncle Teddy's politics (I think we've made our sides known in the health care debate and so has Sen. Kennedy to give you an idea) but I for one think that Senator Ted Kennedy was one of the greatest public servants that this nation has ever seen.

    In a day and age when bickering and name calling are the order of the day, Ted Kennedy got legislation through the US Senate at an amazing rate and did it all while remaining civil and friendly with the other side.

    This is how I think his approach relates to Wicked Pissa Dude. Tim and I typically disagree about most everything when it comes to politics, but no matter how heated the discussion gets, we remain friends until the end. There needs to be more of this attitude in Washington, where civil disagreement is the approach rather than civil unrest in politics.

    Ted Kennedy was a giant among men. He was the least polished of his brothers, but he probably achieved more in his life then any of them ever did. He was a champion for the less fortunate and will be truly missed on the Senate floor, the streets of Massachusetts and in our hearts.

    A nice tribute but to say he accomplished more than his brothers is a little much. They are, as I'm sure you know, both dead and have been for quite a while so advantage Teddy. He was as partisan as they came and from that he was an obstructionist. Maybe more could have been done in health care if he practiced what he preached.
