"Kennedy's Death is a Lot Like 9-11"

Matt Cooper, who used to write for Time Magazine, decided to make a strange comparison to Kennedy's death (Berman Post: Senator Ted Kennedy (D) Died).

"Reporter Matt Cooper, formerly of Time magazine and currently of lefty site Talking Points Memo, finds the perfect comparison for the death of Ted Kennedy:
It feels a bit like 9/11 on Martha's Vineyard. End-of-summer weather is achingly beautiful but the mood is melancholy because of Teddy.
Yes, the death of an ethically-desolate 77-year-old is just like a terrorist attack that killed thousands and plunged the U.S. into years of war.

If you heard a loud thump, that was my jaw dropping. About 110 stories.

UPDATE: A screen grab in case the Twitter quote magically disappears:

UPDATE #2: And the walkback begins...
Didn't mean to equate Teddy's death with the murders of 9/11. Only meant small similarity: beautiful weather, tragic feel.
Yeah, okay, not identical to 9/11, it was just the obvious comparison that first leapt to mind.
