    Re: Sen Kennedy on Pats - Nice!!

    To me, this is exactly what I want my senators to say regarding this situation. A short, simple statement about there being bigger problems to worry about.

    Don't fight Specter, don't try to crusade in the opposite direction, play it off as what it is... a waste of time. Specter will destroy himself given enough time.

    Interesting that my benign political post was deleted . . . anyway, good for Kennedy, although he's usually not one of my favorites. Hopefully this post remains ;)

    Not just the NFL but what Senator is going to make it so obvious they're wasting money in an election year ?

    I'm not a huge Ted Kennedy fan, but I am definitely going to vote for him in his next election for Senate. With the additional Pats fans support, he should go from winning 90% of the vote to 92% of the vote in the next election.

    Kennedy is a Democrat and Specter is a Republican - no big surprise here. What is needed is a Senator from somewhere other than Massachusetts or New England area needs to say something - someone who isn't a homer. Kennedy's past doesn't give him much leverage in any discussion about investigations.

    Kennedy and Specter are both dinosaurs, unfortunately most of what Kennedy said will be minimized and he will be labeled just another homer..

    Barney Franks is actually the more repected voice in DC right now. His reaction would carry more importance than Kennedy or Kerry.

    Kennedy is a enormous dildo, but I am glad he said this...

    I'm not a big Ted Kennedy fan, but when you are right you are right... and Ted was right on the money with this one.

    What a collosal waste of time. Spector is an idiot.

    I doubt Specter's opinion carries more weight than Kennedy's. Read Specter's press conference & then read Kennedy's comments and tell me which one makes more sense:rolleyes:

    Actually Specter sides with the Democrats a lot. He may actually be more liked in some circles of the Democrat Party than he is in the Republican Party.
