More Hutzpah from Camelot

Kennedy raps Santorum for sex abuse remarks
Lambastes senator for ’02 column linking Boston liberalism, church scandal

Associated Press, from MSNBC

Woof... Kennedy whining and demanding an apology for a three year old column from Santorum containing the paragraph:

“Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture,” Santorum wrote. “When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.”

I tend to believe such aberrent behavior has been around much longer than our recent historical awareness. Rather we just know about such things now because we live in the Information Age.

But an apology? Hang... Boston IS the seat of cultural liberalism in American. Isn't that why they keep re-electing Kennedy for their lifetimes? Isn't that what they are so all-fired proud of in that state?

But while we're at it, how about demanding an apology from Kennedy for Chappaquiddick, or any of the other countless, thoughtless, and callous personal remarks the man is famous for. It's alot of hutzpah from someone who managed to escape jail time for manslaughter, and has since been rewarded for by living off the American taxpayer for his adult life.
