NEW YORK - Meet the latest children's author, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and his Portuguese Water Dog, Splash, his co protagonist in "My Senator and Me: A Dogs-Eye View of Washington, D.C."
How nice. A Portuguese Water Dog named Splash has a certain irony to it. Because that is precisely the sound that the car made, right before he got out and left Mary Jo Kopechne to die.
Like Tookie, it sounds as if Sen. Kennedy wants to atone for something. Unfortunately for Tookie, writing children's books was not enough to make people forget about his heinous crimes. And, I seriously doubt this will make people forget about the fact that Sen. Kennedy is a murderer.
Nice try, Teddy.
UPDATE: Who knows? Maybe this can become a series of books by the Senator. Enlightment Reactionary has some ideas for some other titles.
