yuk yuk

So it turns out ol' Uncle Ted was even worse than we thought - not only did he leave a woman to die, but he loved to joke about it. And yet, the eulogies drone on.

Not surprising really. It's hardly the first time liberals mourned a monster.

That picture is Hilarious!

I am reading a book called "The Real Che Guevara....and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him" and ohhh how I wish it had been included.

It worse than that. Peter posted today about the evidence that Swimmer may have attempted treason in the '80s. He wrote to the USSR to see if they'd help him undermine Reagan.

Nothing that could come out about Ted Kennedy could lower my opinion of the man any further.

Skeletons are falling out of the Kennedy closet.
Joe Kennedy supported Chamberlain's appeasement and sought an audience with Hitler, "to bring about a better understanding between the United States and Germany."

[...] Holocaust jokes are even funnier [...]

God, that is one of the most appalling things I've ever heard.

Oleg has a good Che shirt, speaking of that particular charismatic leader.

I CANNOT listen to NPR.

Does anyone remember the 60s play MacBird, the blank verse tale of LBJ having JFK killed? "None of beating heart or human blood shall harm MacBird", but Joe had the boys' hearts replaced with pumps and an inert fluid in their veins. Robert prevails...but in Teddy KenO'Dunc's case. "There were side effects" and he was depicted as basically retarded.

Sounds like what Joe did to his too willful daughter Rosemary, had her lobotomized into a vegetable.

God damn... I almost felt bad putting up my post about him, but bugger that. If that scumbag can see fit to make humor over the negligent death of an innocent woman, he can gorramed rot.

My mother raised me to not say anything if I couldn't say anything positive, so...

Breda,

Worse, as Crucis mentioned, he went through John Tunney, a former Democratic senator from California, to reach out to the Soviets though a KGB agent in France. All this came out and was reported in the London Times in February 1992. Here's a link to start off with: http://www.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=30980

I would not expect you to take my words at face value, but it shouldn't be that hard to verify or debunk. If it's true, he's a traitor.

DirtCrashr said...

I remember Tunney. He was the kind of greasy-slick Sacramento wheeler-dealer who would do that, and he was Teddy's roommate at VA Law.

it's absolutely amazing that the citizens of MASS could/would time after time again reelect this wanna be traitor...i hold every voter in that age group to have voted at least once to reelect this slob in utter contempt...

Ol' Fatboy was a real laugh riot. Breda, search the stacks for a book called Senatorial Privilege by Leo Damore. The eyewitness accounts and accident reconstruction are truly horrible. Mary Jo didn't drown, she suffocated. Fully alive and awake breathing her last in a shrinking air pocket, probably thinking help was on the way.
The kennedy sycophants say Chapaquidick was one incident. It was one incident in a lifelong string of reprehensible behaviour. Ted Kennedy, for whatever good he might have done for constituents was an unrepentant reprobate. The country is better without him.

Or mounted one.

To me, Uncle Ted is Ted Nugent. I was shocked to read this update. Then I twigged, read the link. Some Politician called Ted died, didn't he? The Joys of a Foreign look on american politics.
