Heavens to Betsy - The Irony...

I almost fell out of my chair when I read this Press Release about Sen. Ted Kennedy's latest venture:

"Scholastic, the world's largest publisher and distributor of children's books, announced today that it has signed a publishing deal with Senator Edward M. Kennedy to publish his first children's book. "

"My Senator and Me: A Dog's-Eye View of Washington, D.C. tells the story of Senator Kennedy and his dog, Champion Amigo's Seventh Wave (nicknamed "Splash" by his original owner) and a day in their life in the Senate. A Portuguese Water Dog, Splash is always at Senator Kennedy's side - in his office, at press conferences, in meetings at the Capitol and even right outside the Senate chamber. Told from Splash's point of view, this charming picture book not only takes readers through a full day in the Senator's life, but also explains how a bill becomes a law. My Senator and Me also includes biographies of Senator Kennedy and Splash. "

You've just got to be kidding me... Splash, the portugese water dog, always at his side.... Too bad Splash wasn't around to help Mary Jo get out of the water.....

UPDATE: Always a source of entertainment, Ted massacred Judge Alito's name live and in front of all those present at the confirmation hearings today ... "Judge Alioto?" Good Grief!
