The Monday column: Ted Kennedy celebrates Mardi Ghraib

A few weeks ago, I promised myself I wouldn’t write about Ted Kennedy again. I lied to myself…twice.

This week’s WorldNetDaily column focuses on Ted Kennedy’s joy at the 1-year-anniversary of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. I created a special holiday just for Ted, combining the misery of Abu Ghraib with the glee of Mardi Gras, it’s called “Mardi Ghraib”. The new holiday is celebrated by those who want to focus on what miserable rights violators our people in Iraq are, and yet party because the same thing helps them make Bush look bad.

Get out your beads for Mardi Ghraib. Just don’t put them around Ted’s neck, because he might show us… Oh man, I don’t even want to think about it. Suffice to say, you don’t want to see this up close.
