Ran across this and thought it was kind of cool, so I figured I'd post it...

From The Nation, by Eric Alterman

A (Very) Short Story About a Photograph

Quote :
Back in January 2007, I took my kid to Washington to enjoy the festivities surrounding the inauguration of the first ever female speaker of the House, together with a (mostly) Dead reunion that night. Before the concert, I stopped off at a reception for my good friend and favorite Congressman, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts.

As the kid and I were walking in -- she was eight by the way -- we were joined at door by the senior senator from Massachusetts. We said hello and he did that thing that politicians do sometimes in front of kids, which is act like they are thrilled to meet the great man who is their dad, which was nice given who he was, and all, but even better, he asked us to turn around and go back to his van so he could introduce the kid to his dog, who was waiting there.

We did and then he asked me if I would please take a photo, since this was such an exciting moment for him. It's a crappy photograph, as you can see, but one this family will always treasure.

HBO is going to broadcast a documentary starting Tuesday. CNN ran it last night after the memorial ceremony so it will probably air again on cable soon. I watched parts of it and look forward to seeing it in it's entirety next week.
Airing TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 at 7pm on HBO; THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 at 11:15pm on HBO2 and FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 at 9pm on HBO SIGNATURE.
Quote :

TEDDY: IN HIS OWN WORDS deftly combines the Senator's own voice - culled from past commentary, speeches and public and private sources - with archival newsreel and television footage, iconic photographs and rarely seen archival footage, such as home movies and photographs, to tell the sweeping saga of Teddy Kennedy. What emerges is a portrait of a crusader who has kept his eye on the most important public goals, from civil rights and desegregation to minimum wage and health reform, despite a series of personal tragedies and crises. As the film shows, none of these setbacks derailed his career, and the rejuvenating bonds he shares with members of his illustrious family continue to this day.

Based on coverage today, a lot.

On another note, a social studies teacher told us, "Never ask who cares, because someone always does."

Teddy Kennedy Jr gave an amazing speech at the funeral today. I,like almost everyone had never heard him speak before. When he finished my immediate thought was...Please think about running for office.

Just the fact that Teddy Jr upsets a GOPosaur like yourself, tells me that he has a very bright future.

Who should we have voted for? The old man and his crazy creationist sidekick? You didn't vote for them either, remember?

So again... who should we have voted for? Who would have done all the things right that Obama has done wrong? You mentioned qualifications. So who would have been the better choice?

I think we would be remiss if we didn't remember Ted Kennedy on this very special day. Thank you Senator for your hard and relentless efforts that led to this very special day. The nation truly owes you a debt of gratitude and we will never forget you.

Truly....."The Dream Lives On"!

A great tribute to the late Sen Ted Kennedy at the DNC. If you want a preview of what's going to happen to Mittens at the upcoming debates with the President start @ 1:40 into the video

Warren unseats GOP Sen. Brown in Massachusetts
Quote :
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Elizabeth Warren has unseated Republican Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts, giving Democrats their second pickup of the night of a Republican Senate seat.
I can't think of a more deserving person than Elizabeth Warren to reclaim Teddy's seat.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Director Tackling Ted Kennedy Thriller 'Chappaquiddick' (Exclusive)

It seems that it would be a challenge to maintain the suspense of this incident long enough to make it into a ‘thriller’, seeing that the plot is essentially:


He drank.
He drove.
She drowned.
He ran.
He lied.


The End
