A little viewed Scene from Teddy's Funeral


The dope with the change brought along one of his minions to give Teddy a dirge for his send off below ground. How appropriate.

He is more believable than the Redemptorist who welcomed people to the Mass. And Ted Kennedy Jr. was more Catholic than the homilist - at least Ted Jr. spoke about the need for Redemption.

I wasn't going to watch at all. Then When I thought it was "safe" I switched on the set, and they were at Arlington, 3 hours after schedule sticking Ted into the ground just at dark. [I remember how long it took for Bobby K. -- that and the person who got killed standing on the track to "see"] I flipped to another channel, and C-SPAN had a rebroadcast of the funeral...and the homilist was pathetic. To listen to them talk butter didn't melt in Teddy's mouth.

I agree Ted Jr. did a good job overall. The best part was when he was talking about his dad helping him with a physical challenge after he'd had has leg removed (Ted Jr.)

But then I should have switched off and didn't. The soloists were good, but as typical Caroline and the whole proabort crowd of them trotted up for Communion. I did turn off when zero was on.

BTW, I *LOVED* the Almighty's "lighting effects" graveside. Perfect.

That homelist EXACTLY is exhibit A of why the liberal industrial North East is LOST as far as the faith is concerned.

You are very charitable, if that is the right word!, about that homilest. I was much more truthful about him in my blog!

Well, I came to it mid=stream so I was giving him a break just incase he started with "Despite what a drunken murdering fool Ted Kennedy was for the most of his life he...."

I was trying to watch the LLWS, and it was interupted by Zero at the pulpit.
