A tip of my hat….

July 15, 2008

To a true master of publicity…Teddy Kennedy.

After announcing he had a malignant and practically inoperable brain tumor awhile back, good old Kennedy got the surgery anyway and then promptly went fishing on his monster yacht – all for CNN, FOX News and AP to see.

Then, in a publicity move that actually made me tear up, Kennedy surprised everyone by returning to the Senate this week – to be the deciding vote on a Medicare bill. Cue the standing ovation, the photo opp and my tears.

Well done, Teddy, and keep fighting. The world wouldn’t be the same without the classic Kennedy photo opps. You, Bobby and JFK are/were all true masters.
