God Saves Senator Kennedy, As Girl Drowns
I know no other way to say it than this: I despise the Kennedys.
JFK would have been a lackluster president whose greatest achievement would have been getting us involved and bogged down in Viet Nam. He may have even been responsible for the Gulf of Tonkin lie. His brother Ted, the ersatz soul of the Democratic Party, is a serious problem altogether.
Ted murdered Mary Jo Kopechne on the night of July 18, 1969. At approximately 2320 hours, he crashed his car into the Chappequiddick River - killing his companion. He swam to shore, checked into a hotel, phoned his lawyer and waited 12 hours before calling the police. Experts testified at the hearing that she had been in the car alive for about 2 hours.
GFY, Teddy. Hope you and Tookie are roasting marshmallows sometime soon.
