Why this Democrat scoundrel is called a Lion

Politico’s Blake Hounshell asked an innocent enough question on Twitter as to why Ted Kennedy was often referred to as a “lion.”

Readers were all too happy to give him some plausible explanations.


Twitchy readers had some funny responses:

For some of our younger readers, you may not know that Ted Kennedy inspired the “War on Poverty”, the Hart-Cellar Immigration Act, also known as the “Anyone-With-a-Pulse-Act.”

Ted the Lion also escaped a submerged car leaving a young woman to drown, while he swam to safety. He would later return to the pub where they couple had been drinking earlier.

No wonder the Left considers Teddy a lion! This may also be why Snoop Dogg graduated to Snoop Lion.
