    It was a quiet 75th birthday for Ted Kennedy yesterday.

    No one drowned or overdosed on drugs. There were no arrests for OUI or rape. No girls were crippled in overturned Jeeps, there were no Coast Guard rescues of beached boats.

    Not so long ago, when Teddy reached this kind of birthday milestone, heā€™d be treated to a big smooch-fest in the mainstream media. Thereā€™d be front-page stories about how he was ā€œturning his life aroundā€ - the sort of nonsense you generally read about wannabe rappers gunned down in drive-by shootings.

    Never ceases to amaze me, that despite all of his shortcomings.. he continues to get re-elected and no one has ever raised a credible political race.

    PSH - that's no way to have a birthday party.

    There are still people in Boston who put Teddy's picture on their pianos beside their picture of Jesus.
