We should every year remember the true story of Mary Jo's death, and how it revealed the true "character" of one Edward M Kennedy.
We should honor her. She gave her life to save us from a Ted Kennedy presidency.
“Teddy, Teddy, I think I’m pregnant, What shall I do?”.
“Don’t worry Mary Jo, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it”
Gee, what do you supposed fat teddy is doing today? Visting the grave, repenting, praying for her soul,,,,,naw, I’m thinking he’s sitting his fat ass on his yacht chugging back some chivas enjoying the scenery...........when fat teddy finally meets his maker I’m hoping MaryJo is there as well to point him towards the gates of hell...........
I was told by a long time Cape resident that on the Vineyard some of the locals refer to the bridge as “the Kennedy carwash.” Not all are brainwashed in MA once you get out of the 495 Boston belt.
It would be true justice if the Lord chose this day to end Ted Kennedy’s life...
Brilliant idea! We will see what God has planned for fat teddy!
I was 13 years old attending Boy Scout camp on Cape Cod when this happened.
I heard Rush Limbaugh say, “Nuclear power has killed fewer Americans than Ted Kennedy’s car.”
while many people believe Ted left his mistress to drown, so that he would not get caught driving drunk, the boston globe had a different spin on the incident.
If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age.
Charles Pierce in a January 5, 2003 Boston Globe Magazine article.
too bad you killed her instead Teddy
Ted: “Bottom’s Up!”
The first Moon landing was on July 20th, 1969. I saved my parent’s Boston Globe newspapers for the Moon landing and also have the Teddy “I should have drove a Volkswagon” Kennedy story.
A still shot from what is undoubtedly not Ted Kennedy's favorite movie, Ghost Story.
Mary Jo suffocated, she did not drown, she did not die on impact. She suffocated while the drunken teddy was worried about how the accident would affect him. If he had simply called for help, Mary Jo would have survived the accident.
I read this book when I was a college kid http://www.amazon.com/Teddy-Bare-Last-Kennedy-Clan/dp/0882791095
It lays out the entire scandal.
