Several of the right-wing commentators at Free Republic didn’t exactly have a “compassionate conservative” reaction to the sad news of Sen. Ted Kennedy’s brain tumor.

Among the more reprehensible responses:

I would take a stab at what Mary Jo will say to him but I don’t think they’re going to meet in the same place.

Strange how you can wish all sorts of terrible things upon someone who has almost single-handedly destroyed the country and then you hear about something like this and you remember what your grandmother told you about not saying anything if you have nothing nice to say, so………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

However, I am going to honor my late Mom who always said if you cannot say something nice about someone, don’t say anything.
Therefore, silence shall be golden hereabouts!

I am a sinner and by no means perfect but this sorry sack of garbage was given the opportunity to repent before he meets his Creator. He should be thankful/

Senator Kennedy is an evil, wicked man who is fortunate to have been given this opportunity for repentance before he dies. I pray he does just that.
I join you in that prayer.
