Kennedy To Quit Anti-Women Club

The good folks over at Hub Politics, via Pardon My English, report that the Senator from a really blue state Ted Kennedy will give up his seat in the very posh Harvard alumni group known as the Owl Club. Evidently, the Owl Club has a bit of a problem allowing membership to women.
U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy — who ripped Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito for ties to a group that discriminates against women — says he’s going to quit a club notorious for discriminating against women “as fast as I can.”
Kennedy was outed by conservatives late last week as a current member of The Owl Club, a social club for Harvard alumni that bans women from membership.
In an interview with WHDH Channel 7’s Andy Hiller that aired last night, Kennedy said, “I joined when I . . . 52 years ago, I was a member of the Owl Club, which was basically a fraternal organization.”
Asked by Hiller whether he is still a member, Kennedy said, “I’m not a member; I continue to pay about $100.”
He then said of being a member in a club that discriminates against women, “I shouldn’t be and I’m going to get out of it as fast as I can.”
Not a member but he pays about $100. "Get out of it as fast as I can". Sounds like what he did on Chappaquiddick Island back in 1969.
