As many of you know Sen. Ted Kennedy's plane was struck by lightning a few days ago. No one was injured and the plane landed safely.

This just in from the Le Mars, IA newspaper:

Today's mini

Here's how I figure it happened: Senator Kennedy says, "Much like my own unfortunate accident years ago, Patrick Kennedy's car accident did not involve alcohol. May lightning strike me if I'm lying ..."

    I'm sure both were just enjoying a good loose meat sandwich and lost site of the road.

      ? Patrick Kennedy?

      What a stretch to find something funny with some made-up crap. Isn't there some tie-in you could figure out for a "Drive Off the Bridge" joke, too?

        Hmmm ... Gizmo, what part do you percieve to be "made-up crap"?

        Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) is Sen Ted Kennedy's son. He was involved in an accident in Wash. D.C..

        Sen.Ted Kennedy's aircraft WAS struck by lightning as reported in national wire services.

        The "today's mini" was a copy and paste from a newspaper.

        What part of this don't you understand?? SHEESH!

            Thanks mr chips.

            At least there are a few roadfooders with a sense of humor.

              I found humor in it

              But then ... I hate all politicians equally and think they should all be ridiculed !!

                I swear this is true:

                A woman interviews for a job with Ted Kennedy.

                Kennedy: “You realize that you’ll have to travel a lot.”

                Woman: “That’s OK.”

                Kennedy: “And that to save money we’ll have to share a hotel room.”

                Woman: “OK.”

                Kennedy: “And on some nights we will be having sex.”

                Woman: “That’s all right.”

                Kennedy: “Do you have any questions?”

                Woman: “Well, if we are having sex, I might get pregnant and I wonder what arrangements you’ve made for obstetrics insurance, maternity leave, etc.”

                Kennedy: “Don’t worry; we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
