Amnesty - Another Kennedy Carpool
GOPUSA.com ^ | June 18, 2007 | Robert Yoho

Posted on 06/17/2007 11:00:06 PM PDT by Clintons-B-Gone

In 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy offered to drive a young woman named Mary Jo Kopechne home from a party. She died that night when a wealthy, powerful, and drunken senator drove off a bridge and left Miss Kopechne to drown in his submerged sedan. While the young woman tragically took her last breaths, the Senate's serial swiller was busy catching a nap and working on an alibi.

This week, Ted is behind the wheel of the amnesty wagon, driving another used car though the halls of Congress. In a dazzling show of chivalry, a man drunk with his own power has offered to drive President Bush, Lindsey Graham, and Trent Lott home. As he did with the young secretary at Chappaquiddick, Ted is taking Lindsey, George, and Trent for a ride. Moreover, they are giddily flattered by his company.

I am certainly not making light of the death of this young woman. To the contrary, I think it is a moral travesty that Ted Kennedy has been allowed to escape the confines of a jail cell or to remain a member of the United States Senate for these nearly 40 years. Nor do I think the death penalty would have been too harsh a sentence for his crime.

This time, Kennedy's actions will not immediately take a human life, although a number of innocents have certainly died at the hands of the illegals. However, the passage of this bill is clearly the death of principle. Moreover, it may ultimately prove to be the death of the Republican Party.

It would appear that fidelity isn't only a challenge for Sen. Kennedy. The Republicans are increasingly having some difficulties in that area also.

The suitors of George W. Bush carried him to the White House and across the threshold to the Oval Office. Lindsey Graham won the hearts of many for his impassioned pleas as a House manager in the Clinton impeachment trial. And Trent Lott's virtue was championed by conservatives when the critics wanted to crucify him for his kind words at an old man's birthday. Apparently, none of the faithful boys from their hometowns can hold a candle to the distinguished gentleman from Massachusetts.

We have a right to expect a higher standard from the president and Republican members of the United States Senate. They already know the man's driving record. When it comes to the subject of illegals, Kennedy has repeatedly taken the country for a ride. Yet Teddy flashes his pearly whites and tells them once again that he will get them home safely.

Conservatives have repeatedly cautioned them not to get into a car with Kennedy. But these silly girls think that they can finally make an honest man out of Ted. And I suppose they will cross that bridge when they come to it.

Teddy was saying the same things in 1986, when he took a bunch of GOPers for a ride on an amnesty for illegals bill. That came on the heels of his car pooling in 1965, when he dumped his lovers in the bay to carve another notch in his amnesty bunk.

But Ted knows the truth about what he's driving. Should they consummate this agreement, there will be no enforcement of the law. There never is any enforcement for Ted Kennedy--personally or professionally. Amnesty from wrongdoing is a Kennedy trademark.

Lindsey, George, and Trent need to learn one thing about the senator. Like his family's protege, Bill Clinton, there are only two pursuits for which Kennedy will whisper softly in your ear. And neither one of them will garner Teddy's respect in the morning.

Yet each of these three gently removed the ring from their fingers and quickly slipped it into their purses. The faithful, conservative guys who brought them to the dance are so quickly forgotten. And they will allow themselves to be defiled by a man with old money and an even older pickup line.

But they all have their reasons. George takes the moral high ground by claiming to be the designated driver. Lindsey believes it is his elective duty to hold hands with the inebriate. Trent just wants to shut off the radio, so the disk jockey cannot warn them about the dangers of drunk drivers.

This bill will do nothing to stem the tide of illegal immigration. In fact, it will only serve to make the problem worse and the eventual solution that much more difficult to attain. It is only about one thing: Ted's desire to have his way with another conquest.

Ted Kennedy is simply taking Lindsey, George, and Trent for a ride. And the three of them will eventually prove to be all wet!!!

Yeah and the Republicans in Ted Kennedy's amnesty car will be left to drown and die when he drives it off the bridge. Fools!

Perfection is impossible to attain by mortal man, that said I believe the author has made an almost perfect analogy.

This is not over yet. Bush refuses to give up this easily. It's his stubborn character. As I predicted he would try to resurrect it and call it something else. We have to keep our guard up. We need to keep the pressure up. We have no choice but to fight. The oligarchy wants cheap labor and a destruction of the middle class and the millionaire democrats want votes they can count on. A marriage made in HELL.

STAGE TWO is to go after the people who hire illegals. Start giving them fines and arresting them. Just catch ten or 100 of them on the nightly news. The magnet will dry up and most of the 12 million will go home by themselves.

As an addendum, we should anonymously call the IRS, people working "off the books" means taxes ain't being paid. Make anonymous fliers and hang them around the neighborhood, name names. It's time to embarrass these bustards, whether they give to the GOP or Rats, we don't need them.

CALL! CALL! CALL! CALL! AND KEEP CALLING TILL THE LINES FRY!

WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! TILL YOU RUN OUT OF INK IN YOUR PEN!

Bombard the Democrats as well, especially the ones that ran on an anti illegal immigration plank and the ones in marginal districts who could be vulnerable. keep pounding on them. This is a bipartisan issue not a Conservative or Liberal issue BUT AN AMERICAN issue.

STOP AMNESTY NOW!! WE CAN DO IT!!

The best way to stop Shamnesty

I’d like it if wetback Uncle Teddy would take his water wings, cross the Rio Grande, and never come back.

The real tragedy is that we are all in the car with Teddy and the "girls" and they won't let us out. We know the bridge is ahead, but all of our screaming for them to stop or they'll kill us goes unnoticed.

What is most disturbing is that it’s not just the President, and a handful of allegedly Republican Senators that are in the car with Teddy.

We’re ALL in that car, and SOMEbody has to figure out how to grab the wheel before it’s too late.

She DIDN'T DROWN. She was trapped down there so long that she suffocated.

The difference is that the crash didn't kill her.
Had Kennedy attempted a rescue instead of running away, she'd probably still be alive today.

I’m surprised Ted isn’t using taxpayer funds to supply life preservers for the mexican side of the rio grande.

The difference being that her death took several hours while she waited in vain for that POS to go get help.

Maybe if you had more than a room temp IQ you'd understand the difference.

Ted Kennedy, the man too irresponsible to hold a driver’s license (like Obama), one of the country’s leadership. Something the most ordinary of Americans can do, with ease.
