The Goldwater presidency

Ted Kennedy is attacking Alito. You know, the standard moderate rhetoric: the judge is a monarchist, a supporter of tyranny, against blacks and women, and so on. No surprise there. But, surprise, he also makes an unfavorable reference to the Goldwater presidency. Dana Milbank caught it. (via Instapundit).
Perhaps Kennedy said this because he wanted some quick attention (or he’s back on the juice). Drudge claims that the Demos will try to destroy Alito any way they can, including claiming he is a racist and a sexist because he belonged to something called the Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP).

If I’m not mistaken, Hunter Thompson once said this of Nixon: "The integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad."

Unfair to Nixon, but just right for Senator Kennedy. It is pointless to subject this man to a rational gloss.
He is what he is. Why ask why? It only dignifies the bastard.

Another gem from the drunkard who thinks the junior Senator from Illinois is "Barack Osama."

"Perhaps Kennedy said this because he wanted some quick attention (or he’s back on the juice)"

Yet it’s juvenile, disrespectful and irresponsible when others toss around tabloid-style speculation that President Bush has fallen off the wagon?

Yet that never stops you from doing it anyway.

Chris - the whole point is that it’s low-class behavior for ANYONE to do it, right, left or in-between. If you can show me where I’ve ever passed on such stupid rumors, I’ll be happy to confess my hypocrisy, okay?
