Re: Ted Kennedy’s Elitist Sexist Club


Let me get this straight: Sam Alito, who worked hard in New Jersey public schools, got into Princeton on his own merits, took his meals in the coed dining hall and had nothing to do with the all-male Princeton eating clubs, is getting guff from Ted Kennedy, Boston elitist who got into (and stayed into) Harvard on, um, other people’s merits, and who just a few months ago reconfirmed his membership in the Owl Club, which according to the Washington Times has “long been reviled on campus as sexist and elitist, and in 1984, was booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws.”
