Skip to comments.Joyce Carol Oates: How does one woman’s life compare to decades of awesome Senate service?

Somehow, the fact that she recognizes Chappaquiddick as unconscionable, despicable, unmanly and inexplicable only makes it worse. Its come to this: Yet, ironically, following this nadir in his life/ career, Ted Kennedy seemed to have genuinely refashioned himself as a serious, idealistic, tirelessly energetic liberal Democrat in the mold of 1960s/1970s American liberalism, arguably the greatest Democratic senator of the 20th century. His tireless advocacy of civil rights, rights for disabled Americans, health care, voting reform, his courageous vote against the Iraq war (when numerous Democrats including Hillary Clinton voted for it) suggest that there are not only second acts in American lives, but that the Renaissance concept of the fortunate fall may be relevant here: one falls as Adam and Eve fell; one sins and repents and is forgiven, provided that one remakes ones life
Yet if one weighs the life of a single young woman against the accomplishments of the man President Obama has called the greatest Democratic senator in history, what is one to think?

More proof that liberalism is a mental disease.
The two don’t compare well if the woman is a horrible excuse of a writer like you, Oates, and if the Senator actually defends the Constitution.
If the writer is a weak poser such as you, Oates, and a drunken murder like Kennedy, I suppose the two leave pretty much the same behind.
Nothing worth while but damage to the roles they were supposed to serve.
That’s some serious mental illness right there.
... that Mary Jo was the better person, by far!
murder = murderer
I guess in this libatard’s ‘mental delusions’....that Mary Jo shouldn’t have been even BORN.
These people are TRULY SICK BEYOND WORDS. I hope they rot. Seriously.
Somebody she drive this woman off a bridge in an Oldsmobile.
Using this same line of reasoning, had Hitler succeeded in creating a “Master Race”, would that have justified the Holocaust?
No, a plague! “Rats carry the black plague..
Joyce Carol Oates
Maybe Oates can lecture us now on how Mike Tyson is so “misunderstood”.
This bimbo wrote the book, We Were the Mullvaneys.
Worst book I ever read.
I am not surprised that this b*tch would write this drivel.
My wife’s a writer, but she is actually an intellectual.
JCO is a bimbo, and a slut.
Proof that O has his head is his ass......
Edward M. Kennedy was not only a poor excuse of a man but he was also a stepping stone to socialism in the United States of America.
As Mark Twain said, 'I didn't attend the funeral but I approved of it'.......
The Left is a death cult, and no pile of bullsh*t social welfare fig leaves can hide that fact.
The piece on Huffington Post, concluding with...
...was a window into the liberal mind.
The replies that followed it were even more revealing view of the pathology of the left.
They are possessed of one highly developed mental skill: rationalization.
Translation...These cretins are actually willing to grant absolution for homicide to advance their policy agenda. And they say Glenn Becks crazy.
“Ted Kennedy seemed to have genuinely refashioned himself...”
Yeah; he “refashioned himself” all right. He became as degenerate as a man can possibly get. He did nothing with any redeeming value.
What does Mary Jo’s family have to say on the matter? How do they feel that Kennedy’s friend, Klein, said that Teddy’s favorite jokes were Chappaquiddick jokes? The man makes me want to puke.
