Ted Kennedy gets $2M for autobiography

Politico reports:
Sen. Ted Kennedy, the veteran Massachusetts Democrat who is battling brain cancer, was paid nearly $2 million last year for an author’s advance on a new autobiography, according to financial disclosure reports made public Friday.
Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.


  1. Working titles under consideration include "Hello, He Lied," and "Swimming with Sharks'...

  2. Any idea who is ghost writing it for him?

    Dumb question, I know. Only Palin needs a ghost writer. Everyone is brilliant enough to do it themselves. Even Teddy.

  3. Mary Jo could 'ghost write' for him. Then it might actually be worth the read. I'll pay someone $2 million in mad money to kick the seat of his old dying ass. Any takers?

  4. He's a "Lyin'" of the Senate! Another working title, apropos the Wm. Kennedy Smith affair:

    "Wake Up and Drink Some More!": A Life

  5. How about "If I Did It"? Oh wait...never mind...
