MEMORIAL TO SEN. TED KENNEDY
12-22-10 | self

Posted on 12/22/2010 6:28:05 PM PST by Jerrybob

A few days ago I read that someone (John Kerry?) was going to do a memorial to his old buddy, Ted Kennedy.

At first I was outraged -- spend money on a drunken, old Senator.

Then I thought -- it might not be so bad -- as long as the memorial is appropriate. This is my idea:

A giant fountain with a 1967 Olds 98 upside down in the middle of it with a statue of him sitting on the edge watching it fill up with water.

That I could go for.

The waitress sandwich in bronze might work, too.

That's close to what I thought of. Except instead of a fountain I would make it a glass bottomed pier at Chappaquiddick - with the car on the bottom of the water.

Maybe PBS can have Robert Ballard do a dive on the site as part of the Kennedy memorial broadcast.

Such a tragedy for the Kennedy family. The car was only two years old.

An annual memorial Mass for Mary Jo Kopechne, celebrated in the largest Catholic church in Boston, that would help.

BTW, I’m Catholic.

Maybe a bottle of scotch whisky to go with that.

I heard once that her parents (probably now deceased) were well paid to stay very quiet — which they did....

The thing that gets me -- on top of the obvious outrage of this whole thing -- is the fact that, if I did what Ted Kennedy did, I'd be rotting away in prison for the remainder of my natural life; he, on the other hand, had a very long career as a U.S. Senator.

I know -- he is, no doubt, in a place that's very warm right about now, but the fact that there is one set of laws for us common folk and, apparently, NO laws that apply to our elected officials -- stinks pretty bad from where I sit....

Funny, I thought this picture had a pair of women's legs splayed open and hanging out the back window, but this is all I could find with Google.

Do the memorial on New Year’s Eve. Everyone there will be drunk and that will be appropriate.

That’d work. I’d contribute toward commissioning a sculptor to make this.

Would rather see a postage stamp size copy of his mug along with a hundred other murderers, who got away with murder.

Because democrats/socialists/MSM chose not to report the facts.

A ‘neck brace’ FGS gave this killer a pass.

...since it is now appropriate with the new START agreement,I propose a monument with the swimmer meeting with a soviet agent discussing ways to defeat America.

Yes, both parents are deceased. I believe Mary Jo was an only child. A few years after the “accident” it came out that Mary Jo’s parents did receive compensation for mental suffering-much deserved I should say.

One comment from Mary Jo’s mother regarding a possible affair between Mary Jo and Kennedy. The mother made reference to Mary Jo’s boyfriend and certainly implying that she was faithful to him. No one to the best of my knowledge ever tried to find anything about him.

I find it simply appalling that that POS is buried in Arlington. However, I realize that they buried him there to prevent many of us from pissing on his grave.

a 1967 Olds 98

Should be a 1967 Delmont 88 to be accurate.

It’s called tyranny. Been under it for quite a while now, some are finally starting to wake up and realize it.

Before mourning Maryjo Kopechne too much, I remember that she was also a Kennedy Democrat and an enemy if she were still alive.

Her death did more for America than her life ever could have.

Years ago, I got an image from the usenet a.b.p.cemetaries group of a simple in-ground marker that has a cross, "Mary Jo", and "1940-1969".

Obviously, with the passing of both parents, it was upgraded.

Mary Jo and the other single girls who went to the Chappaquidick parties with Kennedy and other married men were, correctly or not, called “political prostitutes”, i.e. they were political junkies who slept with powerful politicians.

Got this from a friend who owned land near the Kennedy compound.

Talk about a media and police coverup!
