Yesterday, he told the Brookings Institution that "Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam."
He's inspired me to come up with a few analogies of my own. See how you like them:
"Mary Jo Kopechne is Ted Kennedy's My Lai."And, my personal favorite:
"The William Kennedy Smith rape trial is the pantsless Ted Kennedy's Hindenburg."
"Alcoholism is Ted Kennedy's Waterloo."
"Gin blossoms are Ted Kennedy's stigmata."
"Chappaquiddick is Ted Kennedy's Chappaquiddick."
