Oh, come on now. He only killed one girl and tried to sell his country out to the Soviets. Surely you can’t hold that against him.
No, no, no. It’s all about pretending he was not responsible for a girls death, did not make an effort to save her and did not report the accident for over 8 hours. And we’ll pretend that he did not buy off the poor girl’s parents. And we’ll pretend he was not a philanderer. And we’ll pretent he is was a staggering alcoholic.
That’s the ticket, now Teddy is a perfectly upright, all-American boy.
