NewsBusters Commenters Quick to Dance on Kennedy's Grave
Topic: NewsBusters

If took only two comments in a NewsBusters post noting the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy for NewsBusters readers to begin demonstrating a decided lack of class and sympathy:

Your father was a bootlegger- no better than Pablo Escobar, your father made a deal with the Chicago Mob thru Sam Giancana and then your equally sleazy brothers(I am not calling Mr Giacana sleazy- at least he didn't hide what he was) turned around and screwed the mob

Then worst of all you let Mary Jo die like a dog- you were never a man, just a sniveling, whinny, rich kid whi cried when he didn't get his way.

The world is a better place today

RIP Mar Jo

Stay classy, guys.

Needless to say, as a liberal, Kennedy gets no "RIP" (which even Robert Novak got) from the post's author, Tim Graham, though he conceded that "Kennedy was a historic figure in the Senate and an inspirational leader for American liberalism." Instead, he issued a warning that "We'll be watching for statements ... that don't ring true."

UPDATE: NewsBusters managing editor Ken Shepherd is using Twitter to bash Kennedy:

Kennedy also gave us Title IX, which has had mad unintended consequences, namely it's screwed numerous male collegiate athletes over royally
