The audible snickers you hear are coming from the Washington Post’s headline writers concerning Ted Kennedy breaking loyalty with Bill Clinton:

“Kennedy Will Endorse Obama in Blow to Clinton”

Using the word “blow” in the same headline with “Obama” and “Clinton” is a chuckle-inducing three-way of homonyms and suggestive wordplay for the more immature among us, including me.

I personally would have written “Kennedy Leaves Bridge to 21st Century, Makes Big Splash with Obama Camp,” but that’s just me.
