My new hero

Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Chivas) made an appearance at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, MA Tuesday. After a typically glowing introduction by Congressman Peter Lynch (D-MA), Kennedy took the microphone.

Before he could start stammering and bloviating to the assembled youths, though, one of them — a constituent of Ted’s, one 20-year-old Paul Trost of Foxboro — decided he thought the assembled masses could use a two-word history lesson.

He stood and shouted “Remember Chappaquiddick!” from the crowd, then walked out of the auditorium amid the gasps of shock and horror of his incredible uncouthness.

Mr. Trost has been informed that he could face expulsion for disrupting the assembly with his two-word shout.

Perhaps he should have resorted to more traditional, tolerated forms of protest against Teddy. Leading a chant to drown him out, for one. Or nailing him with a cream pie. Those have been treated more kindly by college officials in the past.
