Ken Burns Delivers Teddy Kennedy

For anyone who missed it (holy shit, guys, when Spencer Pratt showed up at Steph‘s b-day party on The Hills last night? Unnerving!), cancer stricken Senator Edward Kennedy delivered a touching surprise speech at the Democratic National Convention Monday evening, but not before PBS darling Ken Burns stroked him down with the above tribute clip. Oh yeah, it’s all here: black and white pastiche, sailboats, his famous brothers, a string section acting serious in the background. A tad schmaltzy (is there another kind of Burns doc?), but not at all unmoving.
