Ted Kennedy’s Dog Splash Passes On….Wait, Splash?

The late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s dog, Splash, who was the star of a children’s book about Capitol Hill, has died.

Kennedy’s widow, Vicki, announced his death in an e-mail Thursday. She calls the 13-year-old Portuguese water dog “a world-class fetcher of tennis balls and a meeter and greeter of presidents, senators, congressmen and even foreign dignitaries.”

Did you know his dog was named “Splash?” That was a new one on me. Just how insensitive does one have to be to do that? Of course, let’s face it, only in Liberal World is a man who walked away from a car accident to create an alibi, where the vehicle is in the water and sinking, with a young woman drowning slowly, is turned into an icon and model citizen, despite having no regrets or remorse.
