    LONDON (AP) -- He won't be allowed to call himself Sir Ted, but Britain is awarding an honorary knighthood to U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy.

    The government said Wednesday the Massachusetts Democrat is being recognized for services to U.S.-U.K. relations and to Northern Ireland.

    Prime Minister Gordon Brown will announce the honor Wednesday when he addresses a joint session of Congress in Washington. Knighthoods are bestowed by Queen Elizabeth II but recipients are selected by the government or an advisory committee

    Perfect! A drunk Irish Democrat drives off a bridge and swims off leaving a young woman to drown.. and he gets an honorary knighthood.. Perfect!

    giuliani got knighted on the same list. i guess they've forgotten what an absolute nazi old joe was, and how he urged fdr to ally with hitler.

    not surprising, i suppose.

    I'm going to say they didn't forget; they simply aren't going to blame Ted for his father's sins so to speak.

    That would be like blaming a father if his son murdered a man or vice versa.

      Exactly what I thought before I opened this thread. Next it will be Bill Ayers and Dhorn.
