Skip to comments.Washington Whispers: Ted Kennedy an Innocent Chappaquiddick Victim
Posted on 08/30/2010 5:27:21 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
This is one story that U.S. News & World Report's Washington Whispers might want to keep to a low whisper or risk even more ridicule than what they are already receiving. Paul Bedard, writing in Washington Whispers, quotes Kennedy's biographer and former girlfriend who claim that Ted was really an innocent victim of the Chappaquiddick accident. Here is Kennedy biographer Burton Hersh making the case for Kennedy as merely a lousy driver:
Now, a year after Kennedy died, his lifelong biographer Burton Hersh, armed with fresh interviews with Kennedy's mistress at the time, tells Whispers that the whole July 1969 episode should have been handled as a simple crash, leaving the senator's legacy untainted. "It was a car accident," he says. "Ted was a terrible driver. He never paid much attention to where he was going."
"He took a tremendous blow on the head," says Hersh. In interviews following the crash, Kennedy displayed confusion and amnesia, he says.

Mary Jo suffocated in the back seat. Her finger nails bloodied as she fought for life while fat Ted sat in his room plotting his next move.
Sure,bring on the mistress to make Teddy look good....
This supports a theory about Democrats that I've been working on...
Ba$tard, rot in Hell!!! Trying to cheat on one mistress while Joan crawled into a bottle. Effing Kennedy clan scum!
Oh, he was paying attention to where he was going that night, but it had less to do with the car than the occupants.
From a dollar magazine without a cent of truth.
Let me guess - Kennedy took the fall for the real driver, George W. Bush.
Ted Kennedy was a victim of his own ego, his own notoriety, his own fame, his own family name and reputation and his own wealth. Kennedy has nobody to blame for what happened to him but himself.
“Kennedy’s central project was accomplishing as much as he could in public life. And all of the things, including the drinking, the women, and the rest, were sort of supportive activities. They were amusements.”
The leftist continue and accellerate the Stalinist tactic.....repeating a lie often enough so that the canard can take on a life of its own....living in the minds of the liars.
TRYING to rewrite history.
Now just the other night with nothin' to do
We broke a case of proof 102
And started itchin' for that wonderful feel
Of rollin' in an automobile
You could say we was out of our mind
And let me tell you we were flyin' while blind
Read the comments after the US News story itself. Out of the 50+ that I read, I found two that remotely defended him and one of those was blaming “big alcohol” for making people into alcoholics. I don’t know what US News thought it was doing by running this Bullsh_t but it got a lot of ridicule and outrage.
Ted Kennedy (D-HELL) sat on the riverbank listning to that girl die while trying to claw her way through steel, trying to figure out a way to dispose of the body and keep his career going.
He’s right where he should be right now, don’t worry.
He isn't a Kennedy, but he must be a victim of something....
I wonder if I could try that line on my wife?
Democrats doing their endless dishonest re-writing of history, from Wikipedia to this steaming hot pile of obvious bull feces.
