Senator Ted (hiccup) Kennedy will write a children’s book. Parents, protect your kids from this one.

Meet the latest children’s author, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and his Portuguese Water Dog, Splash, his co-protagonist in “My Senator and Me: A Dogs-Eye View of Washington, D.C.”

Scholastic Inc. will release the book in May.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to create a book for young readers and their families that will deepen their understanding of how our American government works,” Kennedy said in a statement Monday issued by Scholastic.

According to Scholastic, Kennedy’s book “not only takes readers through a full day in the Senator’s life, but also explains how a bill becomes a law.” Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat, was inspired to write the book from his work with a Washington-based reading program, “Everybody Wins!”

Heh, a day in the life of the senator.

“Well kiddies, first thing I do when I get up (hiccup) is grab a tablespoon of grandma’s recipe. OK (hiccup), maybe just a little more than a tablespoon. Uncle Teddy is a big man, and I need a little more than most grown-ups.”

Oh could I go a long way with this, but I won’t on this PG-13 rated blog.


  1. Too bad he didn’t own a Portuguese Water Dog back at Chappaquiddick…

  2. I guess he’s just trying to be like tookie…
