Folks, you just can't make this stuff up

Ted Kennedy is releasing his own children's book:

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.

Bloggers throughout the world have proposed titles for the book and The Lone Star Times even has a draft of the cover. Some of the suggested titles (and, no, none of them are mine) include:

"A toast to man’s best friend"
"It Takes a Car Bridge"
"Mary Jo and Ted's Excellent Adventure"
"Driving Ms. Teddy"
"Ted Swift and His Amazing Flying Car Boat"
"The cow jumped over the moonbat"

Too harsh? Note that Kennedy has -- in real life -- named his dog "Splash". Mary Jo Kopechne remained unavailable for comment.
