And I Thought I Couldn’t Hate Ted Kennedy Any More Than I Did

From: http://www.julescrittenden.com/   Meanwhile, listening to ”Reflections on Sen. Kennedy … Lion of the Senate” on the Diane Rehm Show on the drive home last night, I was deeply moved to hear Newsweek’s Ed Klein tell guest host Katty Kay about Kennedy’s love of humor. How the late senator loved to hear and tell Chappaquiddick jokes, and was always eager to know if anyone had heard any new ones. Not that Kennedy lacked remorse, Klein quickly added, seeming to intuit that my jaw and perhaps those of other listeners had just hit the floorboards. I gather it was a self-deprecating maneuver on Kennedy’s part, exercised with the famous Kennedy charm, though it sounds like one of those “I guess you had to have been there” things.  <snip>

Ted Kennedy — ROT IN PIECES, YOU FRIGGIN DOUCHEBUCKET.  - BigFurHat

And if you really want your blood pressure to spike, like you’ve had a Jolt Cola enema, read what buttberet Melissa Lafsky, a blogger at HuffPo, says about Mary Jo Kopechne. She writes that Kopechne was a civil rights advocate herself, and it’s a shame that she couldn’t have seen what Ted Kennedy accomplished in his career. Lafsky states that Kopechne’s death was a “catalyst” to Kennedy’s career and Kopechne MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT HER OWN DEATH WAS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!  This is not a piece from THE ONION, folks. This is the left talking with a straight face. I hope Melissa Lafsky can be the catalyst for someone’s career…. tonight…. under a friggin oil truck….

    And I Thought I Couldn’t Hate Ted Kennedy Any More Than I Did– Searched for and read the GQ article from 1990 by Michael Kelly which outlines the waitress sandwich “legend.” His death was appropriately slow and painful. Just because he’ll be in Arlington (remember, Kerry qualifies too) doesn’t mean I can’t go piss on his grave.

    Boobie dog-But if you p!ss on his grave, you’ll be doing him a favor by temporarily quenching some of the hellfire. Stick to the fire hydrants.

    Sweet Christ, the man thought Chappaquiddick jokes were just hilarious?!?! I hope that his demise was agonizing and that he suffered mightily up until the moment he perished.

    Dang.

    Nasty stuff indeed.

    The rhetorical “where’d ya FIND this cr*p?!” is unnecessary….

    IF ONLY THERE WERE A WAY to get this aspect of the Left “exposed” to more mainstream/moderate Americans.

    (sorry for being so serious here. BFH and The PC *r*u*l*e*…or else!)

    Being left to die in a submerged car by a drunken politician who flees the scene of an accident he caused in order to not jeopardize his political career is almost always worth it. In fact, put an age requirement on this scenario, and it could be a lynchpin in the “E. Kennedy Memorial ObamaCare Health Reform Act.”

    Don’ overlook the detail.

    “Bennett and Kennedy were married on November 29, 1958, in Bronxville, New York. Her brother-in-law, John F. Kennedy, dubbed her “the dish”, due to her good looks and fashionable style. They had three children: Kara Kennedy Allen (born February 27, 1960 in Bronxville, New York), Edward Moore Kennedy, Jr. (born September 26, 1961), and Patrick Joseph Kennedy (born July 14, 1967).

    In July 1969, Ted Kennedy was involved in a car accident off Chappaquiddick Island that killed his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne.[5] Bennett Kennedy, who at the time was pregnant and confined to bed in the wake of two previous miscarriages, attended the funeral of Kopechne and stood beside her husband in court three days later, when Ted Kennedy’s pleaded guilty to having left the scene of an accident.[6] She suffered a third miscarriage shortly thereafter.”

    He did more damage to this country than any other single human being in history, all in the name of trying to prove that he really wasn’t the Kennedy family f***up.

    Ironic, isn’t it?

    Actually, Kennedy was NOT eligible for burial at Arlington except by special exception. He spent a couple of years in the Army, hiding in France during the Korean War. He enlisted for 4 yrs after being expelled from Hahvahd for cheating — but was kicked out of intelligence school because he couldn’t get a security clearance (!). Ordinarily, this would mean a quick trip to Korea as a regular dogface soldier, but Ambassador Joe made some calls, got the 4-year enlistment magically changed to only two … and got Teddy (the Fredo Corleone of the Kennedys) a plum assignment to SHAPE in France & Belgium.

    This tour got him out of Korea completely, and he got an “early out,” to boot.

    Arlington burial, currently, requires combat service or a very significant medal. Even 20-year soldiers do not automatically qualify.

    Not qualified for Arlington, but they soiled that hallowed dirt with his bloated, corpulent body anyhow.

    Surely the maggots will gag.
