But most of all to Mary Jo Kopechne.

This is an addendum to Allahpundit’s coverage of this event earlier today.

They’re just trolling us, aren’t they? What with the Water Dogs named Splash, who wrote a children’s book, of course? And, then there was the 2008 DNC tribute to Sen. Ted Kennedy, which was BY GOD WATER-THEMED.

It takes a special kind of shamelessness to be a Kennedy. And, everyone who pays tribute to Ted Kennedy with the same level of gross shamelessness is truly honoring his legacy. On the cold day in Hell on which I’m asked to give a tribute to the late Senator, I’ll show up and deliver it at a police station with a hangover about 10 hours too late to make any difference.
