Gort and Ted Kennedy

"He is a legendary lawmaker, and I have the highest respect for him.”

Those are the words of Republican presidential hopeful John McCain. He offers this praise, not for some stalwart congressional conservative, but for Bay State Senator Ted Kennedy. Blessed and cursed by family wealth, few dispute he spent most of his senate career fighting for those who have much less than him.

News that Kennedy was stricken this weekend by a seizure, resulted in an interesting ditty from Gort, a popular Wilkes-barre blogger. He was among a group that ran into Kennedy in a Nantucket bar, hard as that must be to believe, about twenty years ago.
