Ted Kennedy: Embarrassment and Boor

Boy did Ted Kennedy come across poorly in his petty attempt to bully Arlen Specter at today's Alito hearing. See here for video, here for transcript.

He was equally bad in his embarrassing effort to tar Alito as a racist, which drew an eloquent rebuke from Lindsey Graham. More Kennedy video here.

An embarrassment and a boor. But then, reporting that Senator Kennedy has become an embarrassment and a boor is sort of like reporting the fall of the Berlin wall as late breaking news.
