Great post. Kennedy is a national treasure. We need 99 more like him in the senate.

I am so jealous. He is a Mississippian by birth and he will always be a Mississippian, but he isn’t our Senator. Our two RINO senators suck. Why, oh why did his parents move?

Oh yes, SL. Our RINOs suck too and everytime I think we get one who isnt a RINO, within a yr, they are showing RINO colors including the stupid House.

Kennedy is a national treasure. I wish we could replicate him. I know common sense isnt common but damn I miss it.

Don, I laughed so hard I scared my husband. Thank you for the column. I needed that laugh badly today.

Think Senator Kennedy plagiarized the looney tones character Foghorn Leghorn (Senator Claghorn):

"Gal reminds me of the highway between Forth Worth and Dallas - no curves."

"Looks like the boy genius is tryin' to show me up."

"Nice boy but he's got more nerve than a bum tooth."

"Oh, that woman got a mouth like an outboard motor."

"That dog is as subtle as a hand grenade in a barrel of oatmeal."

"Who's responsible for this unwarranted attack on my person?"

"That's a joke son, I say, that's a joke."

"Pay attention to me boy! I'm not just talkin' to hear my head roar"

"Boy's gotta mouth like a cannon, always shootin' it off"

"Now what, I say what's the big idea bashin' me on the noggin' with a rollin' pin!"

"Boy, I say boy, pay close attention to me, "cause you're a burrito short of a combination plate."

Now that, I say, that is a good point.

I haphazardly wonder how much of these good lines were re-cycled from Fred Allen's enormously popular radio shows produced and broadcast from 30 Rockefeller Center...

Thank you for all of the reminders of John Kennedy's Greatest Hits! I love his humor and the way he uses it - just like Mark Twain. He is a wise man, one of my favorites.

I sure wish I had heard about all of these wonderful quips and quotes when they actually happened. But being on a permanent forty-years-behind-schedule schedule, I'm just grateful that these events happened in the 21st century.

On a humorous note, Dr. Walker (Pfizer director; exposed by Project Veritas) has just confessed that he did all this "lying" to impress Don Lemon (CNN. We recycle the John Hinckley Jr.-Jodie Foster gallows-humor from time to time).

Awesome Column Dear Don

For the Dems

Don’t fall 4 every hoax

Don’t jump into every boat

Dems fall for their own BS

Believe their own lies

Faith / Trust and Truth dies

Everytime they open

Their mouths 👄

A pseudo religion

A contagion 😷
