Ted Kennedy -- mainstream?

I was thinking this morning that any group who thinks that Ted Kennedy is the appropriate person to judge whether another person is "mainstream", shouldn't be trusted with responsibility.

At Power Line, John had this:
the Democrats are just making it up as they go along. They recognize no duty of consistency. Their logic can't withstand the most elementary scrutiny, and their leader is a dimwit who, after being thrown out of Harvard for cheating, graduated last in his law school class. While a law student, he endured the humiliation of being arrested by a highway patrolman while cowering in the back seat of his car, pretending not to be the driver. He subsequently drove off a bridge, thereby drowning a young woman whose only crime was assuming that he was a competent escort. She probably could have been saved if he had gone for help, but instead of trying to rescue her, he spent the night looking for someone who would pretend to have been the driver of the car, discussing legal strategies with his family's advisers, and trying to establish an alibi. And now Ted Kennedy purports to sit in moral judgment over a brilliant, self-effacing public servant like Sam Alito. The American public isn't paying much attention, but I think they're smart enough to figure this one out.

I would add that his only distinction is being born into a wealthy family (with the wealth ill-gotten) and he has never held a real job in his life. Alcohol, drugs, incoherence, infidelity on a scale to rival Bill Clinton ... what a loser.

And they think he is the best they have to render judgment on who is mainstream?

Stan, I listened to Admiral Kennedy (of the SS Oldsmobile) during the Alito hearings. He has either completely lost it or he was drunker than Otis Campbell.
