Okay he didn't actually rescue anyone, but that's what the title of the article implies.

Sen. Edward Kennedy helps rescue fishermen


Associated Press

HYANNIS, Mass. - U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy attempted to rescue six men who had become trapped by high tide on a jetty off Hyannisport on Sunday.

The Massachusetts Democrat eventually left the rescue to Hyannis firefighters, The Cape Cod Times reported Monday.

Kennedy was walking his two dogs on the shore at 11:15 a.m. when he spotted the men cut off from shore by the rising waters. They had been fishing on a jetty that begins at the tip of the Kennedy compound.

Tides had risen over the patchy rocks, which made it difficult to walk back to shore.

Kennedy and a friend tried to rescue the men using a 13-foot boat but rough waters forced them back.

A crew from the Hyannis Fire Department picked them up. The men, in their 20s, were not identified. They were brought to Cape Cod Hospital with mild hypothermia.

He didn't do anything.

The heading of the article has nothing to do with the article.

Well, hes now batting .500 in reference to drowning people.
He never drowned anyone.

He's batting 1.000 when it comes to suffocatng people in air pockets.

Well, he did try. I mean, if he really did get out there in a boat, I give him a lot of credit. And he also did the right thing by letting the fire department take over when it was too dangerous.

It takes a lot for a politician to attempt something. Kudos to Ted. :up:

You just don't get it. He's Ted Kennedy. You're not allowed to compliment him, or say good things about his conduct. -ohbfrank-

The woman that Ted Kennedy murdered in his car did not drown. She suffocated in an air pocket.

A Kennedy in the news! Now that's what I call 'exciting stuff,' to quote a famous talk show host.

Now maybe he'll run for president in 2008 against Hillary Bonham Clinton. (*yes, I said Bonham)

Should the title of the article be "Bush fails to help rescue fishermen"?


Bush doesn't care about fisherman. -ohbfrank-

Maybe this will boost the ratings for Kerry since Ted is an ardent Kerry supporter.

Couldn't fire & rescue have used Teddy Kennedy as a floatation device?

I wanna play!

Let's see...


...Why didn't Ted just open his big fat mouth and swallow the sea, then spit them back onto the shore?

I'm afraid it's worse than that. Louis Farakkan is now reporting that Bush sabatoged the jetty to make the tide swoop in higher. :(

Good one. No, he can't take the tour, he's on the "No Fly" list.
