Arlen Specter and more on Edward Kennedy

I had intended to write a blog on Arlen Specter and then old Arlen proved truth is stranger than fiction.

Arlen worked in Washington once upon a time. He was a Democrat. He was a staff lawyer for the Warren Commission and devised the famous "one bullet theory" of the Kennedy assassination to force the evidence to fit the conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. Whatever the truth was, Arlen was working in the service of baloney.

Arlen was tough-on-crime District Attorney in Philadelphia once upon a time and then was celebrity defense attorney for an peace "activist" turned girl-friend-killer, the Unicorn Killer, Ira Einhorn. Ira jumped bail that had been posted by Seagram's heiress, Barbara Bronfman, and was only brought to justice in 2008.

Then he ran for the Senate. That's another story. The man's karma could scarcely be blacker. He was the big noise in the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings.

The above was originally intended to show that I can write unpleasant things about Republicans . . .and then the scum jumps the aisle.

Now back to the sainted old lion of the Senate. Please don't look at his wife too closely. She works for a great many lobbyists (some would say crooks, gangsters and terrorists) whose seek the old lion's influence and support. Robert Bauer's book on the CIA, See No Evil, documented this. There were recent requests for her to make her tax returns and client list public and these requests were ignored. He's sick. One brother died flying in WWII. Two brothers were assassinated. His father was a gangster. His own life has been in the service of himself. Many lives are messy. Edward Kennedy's life is more messy than most.

Arlen Specter and Edward Kennedy are soul mates.
