Lots of commentary on Ted Kennedy’s death and many blog comment clagged with some pretty foul references to Chappaquiddick… I’ll leave it to others and Google to round up the best… But there has been some exemplary pieces from the right: Dan Hannan on his credentials as a parliamentarian… And Bill Bennett who remembers him as a “a fierce and tough and sometimes a ruthless operator”. And Danny Finklestein believes that when his older brothers are remembered “it will be as their youngest brother remade them”.
