Kennedrunk and the Soviets in bed together in 1983?

Oftentimes, those of us in normal America accuse the left of being a bunch of commie sympathizer pinkos. Usually, it's inflammatory rhetoric aimed at getting a rise out of people who don't need much to set them off. However, little did we know just how right we were. From Ace:
The enemy of my country is my friend:
Kengor focuses on a KGB letter written at the height of the Cold War that shows that Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to assist Soviet leaders in formulating a public relations strategy to counter President Reagan's foreign policy and to complicate his re-election efforts."
Jawa, only somewhat hyperbolically, wants to know the statute of limitations on treason.

JunkYardBlog cautions going out to far on a limb regarding a report from the "exuberant" CNS news service. (Good point, especially if it came from CBS News and the source was hailed as "unimpeachable" by Dan Rather! - Ed.)

Still: We need some answers.

Fortunately, we have a mainstream media that's anxious to get to the truth of important public controversies, no matter which political party that truth might harm.

So, like, we've got that covered.
Here's guessing that that the last two paragraphs were examples of Ace's sarcasm.

That evil b#stard Karl Rove must be behind this! For those of you on the left, the prior sentence was an example of my sarcasm.

Is it OK to question their patriotism now?
