Kennedy: "Oops!"

Yet another example of the "do as I say..." mentality of the rabid left: it's come out that Kennedy has been a member of a men-only organization and subsidizing it for 52 years. This coming after all his bloviating on Alito's membership in CAP.

U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy — who ripped Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito for ties to a group that discriminates against women — says he’s going to quit a club notorious for discriminating against women “as fast as I can.”
Kennedy was outed by conservatives late last week as a current member of The Owl Club, a social club for Harvard alumni that bans women from membership.
In an interview with WHDH Channel 7’s Andy Hiller that aired last night, Kennedy said, “I joined when I . . . 52 years ago, I was a member of the Owl Club, which was basically a fraternal organization.”
Asked by Hiller whether he is still a member, Kennedy said, “I’m not a member; I continue to pay about $100.”
He then said of being a member in a club that discriminates against women, “I shouldn’t be and I’m going to get out of it as fast as I can.”

I guess you should, Ted. It's kind of hard to rail against Alito's "sexism" when you implicitly agree with his practices. Another example of liberal elites telling the rest of us how we should be living, and excluding themselves from their own rules. It's funny watching liberals try and hold the moral high ground they never had in the first place.
