I doubt that I will be spending eternity with the Kennedy’s.

He's probably busy burning off fat.

I knew a kid in high school who got drunk with a friend. They were playing with a pistol and one of the kids by accident shot himself.

The other kid “bragged’ how tough he was because he saw someone die.

Sick

He Loved to Joke About Chappaquiddick

That's the sort of thing people do in a culture of death.

Kennedy was one sick jerk but who is even more disgusting is Ed Klein, former foreign editor of Newsweek and former editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine who saw joking about the murder of Mary Jo as a positive. What world do these people live on?

"He Loved to Joke About Chappaqiddick"

An excellent epitaph for his tombstone.

Concise, yet wholly descriptive of the man.

Wondering what kind of day Teddy is having? I sincerely hope he is wandering the mists of the after world, finding no one to listen, communicate, or commiserate. I believe complete isolation, without admiring sycophants, without servants and aides to do his bidding would be better than flames. Kennedy had outsized appetites and an outsize ego. If he gets his just deserts, he will be lost in the mists alone for the next millineum or so.

There is no way of knowing whether or not Ted asked for or received forgiveness for his crimes here on earth. He clearly has some splaining to do. The Lord will want to know why he did not help Miss Kopechne. The Lord will want to know why he did not honor and cherish his wife. The Lord will want to know why he promoted the killing of millions of unborn babies.

I suspect today Ted is where his father is, not where Miss Kopechne is.

It is pretty sad that the only thing he will be remembered for is a bridge over the Chappaquiddick and the consequences of his drinking spree that night.

The event did not appear to change his life or make him more humble. Nor remorseful about the loss of Mary Joe’s life.

And they wonder why the “Kennedy’s” were not respected in much of the country.

I don’t understand either why the reporter is not
affected by his words either. I atleast would have
said, “You’ve got to be kidding me—he joked about it???”

We need to rechristen the healthcare reform package Chappaqiddick-care.

Q: What Would Mary Jo Kopechne Have Thought of Ted's Career? (revulsion alert) (Huffington Post quote via National Review online)

We don't know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she'd have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don't know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.

Still, ignorance doesn't preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn't automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted's death, and what she'd have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

Who knows — maybe she'd feel it was worth it.

I wonder how many times after Mary Joe’s death he crossed that same bridge?

Also wonder if you can count the number of times he was as drunk again?

Very sad statement about his character and value as a human being.

It is however not for us to judge him, someone else is doing that task now.

The National Lampoon ran that 'ad' in 1973. Lacking a proper sense of humor, the Krauts sued them. So, the Lampoon duly printed a retraction: "Even if Ted Kennedy had driven a Volkswagen he wouldn't be president today."

Simple, the fix was in before the election. Some members in both parties participating, along with the Media. They intend to sell us into Global Bondage.

Here's a joke I heard around Xmass 1979 during the Iranian hostage crisis.

Person 1: Good news! Did you hear that the Iranians have accepted an offer to exchange the hostages for Jane Fonda?

Person 2: No.

Person 1: Bad news, Ted Kennedy's driving her to the airport.

And there is the one about about Kennedy comparing difficulties — saying “This is nothing — you should try dressing a naked woman underwater.”

I guess we can add, now, after his “memoirs”, . . . dressing a naked woman I didn’t even know very well. . . .
