I know that that's not uncommon for him because he's like that most of the time but this morning Chris Matthews took the opportunity of the passing of Mary Jo Kopechnes' killer, Ted Kennedy, to rail against opponents of Obama. He claims that the mood of the country now is the same as it was towards JFK in 1963, implying that those who are against Obama are just like JFK's assassin, who was a far-out lunatic fringe leftist.

I have to be honest that I am not saddened by the passing of Ted Kennedy. I felt that he was a complete disgrace by his total lack of remorse or shame for causing the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969. At that time the only person that mattered to Ted Kennedy was Ted Kennedy. At this moment I have as much sorrow and compassion towards him as he had towards her.
