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:
Your point? Fat, lazy, only wanting to mate. Sounds like Ted.~Ken Klutarich
So was Teddy. Lions let women do all the work and screw all day. Ergo, Teddy~John Corbett
Perhaps it is because lions kill brutally and get away with it if they’re powerful enough.~Charles C.W.Cooke
Yea but they’re smart, they get others in the pride to do the dirty work and only reap in the benefits.~Kabir Taneja
Why is Ted Kennedy always called a ‘lion’? Why not some other animal? Lions are lazy. — Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) March 29, 2015
