Teddy hoisted on own petard

Senator Edward Kennedy who excoriated Judge Samuel Alito for his membership in the Concerned Alumni of Princeton for alleged 'discriminatory' attitudes toward women and minorities is a current, dues paying member of The Owl Club - a Harvard College finals club that admits only men.

According to the Washington Times he updated his information on the website as recently as last September.

Teddy is 'getting out as fast as he can'.

The finals clubs (as an alum, I've always known them as 'finals' clubs and not 'final') are not unlike fraternities - social clubs, men only, off campus. One difference I can remember is that one had to be invited to become a candidate to join rather than an open 'rush' in most of the Greek system. Harvard guarantees housing and does not permit fraternities or sororities in the usual sense. Frankly I don't think there's anything wrong with them but it's nice to see blubbering Teddy caught with his britches down.
