And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Found at Michelle Malkin's post(no link, you don't want to go there) about Sen. Kennedy's brain cancer:
I will pray for Senator Kennedy. Dying from a brain tumor must be awful. I can’t think of anything worse except perhaps suffocating at the bottom of a tidal pool in a ‘68 Oldsmobile. Alone and scared. At 25 years old.

Prayers for the woman he left to die, Mary Jo Kopechne. Ted Kennedy has already received all the breaks in the world. He got away with vehicular homicide and afterwards has spent his life showing no mercy to and villifying Republcans. I cry for the millions of aborted babies and the rest of the victims of Liberal insanity like his.

While much posted there was more like this one:
Senator Kennedy and his family have my and my families prayers.
Cancer is not political.
May God Bless, he and his family.

The majority seemed more like this:
While I vehemently disagree with Senator Kennedy on his politics, I have much sympathy for him and his family. I hope he’s able to get through this. I wouldn’t wish death upon anyone serving this country, even if I disagree with his methods.

Many comments brought up Chappaquiddick and Mary Jo Kopechne. That was a really sad, ugly incident in Kennedy's life, and ruined any chance he may have had of running for President. And many commentors at MM's site also mentioned the "millions of aborted babies and the rest of the victims of Liberal insanity like his".

Apparently lots of Right-wingers feel compassion for Ms. Kopechne. Too bad they don't feel that way about Michael Douglas:
Michael Dutton Douglas, 17, had driven only half a mile before America’s Black Widow of the Night deliberately ran the stop sign at high speed, striking the small car with such ferocity that her boyfriend was ejected from the car and into the dirt.

Nothing else to add except the observation that when a Democrat is responsible for someone's death, they should die in pain and burn in Hell. But when a Republican is responsible, they will likely get a Presidential Freedom Award.

Update: From my dear friend MJS in comments:
He is such a horrible human being that the will of the people of Massachusetts has been to elect him to the Senate every six years since 1962.

Update II by The Sailor: Laura Bush was never charged, even tho she was speeding and ran a stop sign.

She did however release a statement in 2000 when George Bush was ruining [sic] for office:
"I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing ... for the family involved and for me as well."

Hey lady! It was literally crushing for your boyfriend, it was a tragedy for his family. Laura's statement depicts yet another quality that her husband and co-conspirators have in common, the complete lack of empathy evinced by psychopaths.

I don't doubt that laura thinks she was as affected by her boyfriend's death as much as his parents were. Just like she said about American deaths in Iraq: "no one suffers more than their President and I do."
