SENATOR EDWARD KENNEDY... HERO
HatTip to Thomas. Hilarious.
Shocked by the widespread suffering of those displaced from their homes by the flooding in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to plug one of the holes in the Lake Pontchatrain levee with his own ample body.
"The Bush Administration has failed to stem the tide of this cataclysm," said Kennedy. "I have had some experience with aquatic mishaps. This experience will bolster me in this hour of desperation as I plug one of the leaks myself."
(editorial note from chuck l. . . .a nice offer; unfortunately s--t dissolves in water pretty quickly.)
