Today is the forty-fifth anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident, where Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo  Kopechne to die a slow death of asphyxiation in his submerged vehicle.

Here is Ted Kennedy’s non-mea culpa, notable for how little of the details of the incident he could recall, and an example of how to appear to take responsibility while not taking responsibility.

Any other American who failed to report a lethal accident such as this for such a lengthy period would probably have served some jail time, county or prison.  Any other politician would have had his career destroyed.  When Kennedy died he was referred to as “The Lion of the Senate” and Cardinal O’Malley presided over his canonization funeral mass.  I hope Ms. Kopechne received justice in the next world because she certainly received none in this.  I make the same statement in regard to Mr. Kennedy, who in later years liked to joke about Chappaquiddick.  I trust that in the world beyond he no longer finds those jokes quite as funny.

  • The Democrat Party is organized crime. It has been since the Depression. Joe Kennedy was a crook and was a Nazi sympathizer in the 1930s while he was the US ambassador to Great Britain. The incredibly stupid people of Massachusetts reelected Ted Kennedy over and over and over again. they bear some of the blame for Kennedy’s term in office.

    Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington, DC city government, et., etc. Places Democrats run end up stinking like sewage treatment plants and they have to buy votes from minorities and import minorities to get themselves elected.

  • I was 11 years old when this happened. Ted Kennedy did to Mary Jo what most Democrats want to be done to babies.

  • Penguins Fan:
    The term Kennedy Country was used after the organization’s importing and ensuing transformation began. Tonight’s local news was big on the possibility of Westover Air Force Base being used in a federal plan to place undocumented children to relieve the buzzword ‘humanitarian crisis’ with politicians saying that these children will remain on base in a federal program, not to be enrolled in the public schools to alleviate fears of what ? – disease or violence etc. maybe. Cardinal O’Malley was recognized as he was clapping at the news conference.

  • Wasn’t it reported that Mary Jo Kopechne was two months pregnant? What about DNA?

  • Oh lots of idiot things were reported. Since Kopechne’s parents refused an autopsy, any speculation that Kopechne was pregnant is based on thin air.

  • From B/G Thomas F.Meagher court statement upon his sentencing to be hanged for his role in the Young Ireland Movement, 1848. THe sentence was commuted to transportation to the prison colony in Australia.

    “I shall go, I think, with a light heart before a higher tribunal – a tribunal where a Judge of infinite goodness, as well as infinite justice, will preside, and where many of the judgments of this world will be reversed.”

    Sen. Kennedy has long since faced that infinite justice.

Well, the above tribute video to Ted Kennedy shown last night at the Democrat Convention certainly fit into the War on Women meme that the Democrats have been pushing!  The video failed to mention that Kennedy had a great sense of humor, especially about Chappaquiddick!  What a guy!

  • I am sure Jesus’ sense of what is just, loving and fair will be quite obvious to us in heaven. There is an old story of a Jesuit and Dominican who made a pact to return for a private visit whichever went first. The English translation of the deceased cleric was “Dogma is substantially the same, but the Morality is totally different. JESUS hinted at the same- whores and tax collectors would make it before the self-congratulatory,

  • Well I find his supposed humor callous and clueless. Kind of like Ed Klein. The problem with the Kennedy’s was that no one held them to a higher standard. They actually created the standard, at least for their class, and back in the day the press was already in the bag for the first family.

  • From the “American Glob”:

    “Liberal Logicd 101: It’s OK to falsely accuse Mitt Romney of being responsible for the death of a woman he never met, while celebrating the memory of Ted Kennedy who let a young woman drown.”

  • Awesome insight…I wonder if Ol’ Kennedy can be excommunicated and removed from the K of C posthumously, in absentia? Just asking, Tone!
