Glass House Shattered from Within

We learned long ago not to expect any sense of propriety from Sen. Ted Kennedy. Considering his own checkered past, the Moral High Ground he commands is well below sea level. Yet he actually named his dog "Splash." This week he attempted to make a big deal about US Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's membership 30 yrs ago in an obscure Princeton club. Now the Washington Times has hit Kennedy with a club of his own:
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy belongs to a social club for Harvard students and alumni that was evicted from campus nearly 20 years ago after refusing to allow female members.

According to the online membership directory of the Owl Club, the Massachusetts Democrat updated his personal information -- including the address of his home that is in his wife's name -- on Sept. 7.

The club has long been reviled on campus as "sexist" and "elitist" and, in 1984, was booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws, authored by Mr. Kennedy.
While Alito's ties to "CAP" at Princeton were apparently short-lived, Kennedy has clearly been keeping in touch with the Owls. Wouldn't you think that might have entered his mind as he was peeing into the wind in the confirmation hearings?
