"Inexcusable"????

Excuse me but how about "I was drunk and guilty"? in other news:

Saddam Hussein remorseful about Kurds "I was stupid!" he said
Hitler sorry about the Holocaust "How could I have been so cruel?" he asks.
Idi Amin regrets tossing enemies to crocks. "Regretable!"

Did his memoir have an editor in his lifetime? Was the editor a co-conspirator to murder?

Idi Amin’s regret is that he ate someone who didn’t agree with him.

I hope his last year was so wracked with pain that he screamed for more morphine. Think of Mary Jo’s fruitless screams. Her horror. Her death. Think of what Kennedy inflicted upon this country. This Scotch in his rotten corpse will fuel Hell forever.

Well I'm sure johns feel that way about their hookers, rockstars feel that way about their groupies, NBA players feel that way about their hoochie-mamas. I don't think most people felt it was a 'romantic' outing he had in mind. Nope, something a lot more basic ....

Teddy says that he was never romantic with Mary Jo. Does that mean that he is saying that he had sex with her but he never kissed her?

What a coward. He puts it in writing and its revealed after his death.

A real man would’ve made a public confession rather than pull this. And would’ve done it YEARS ago. Typical Kennedy SOS Christian. Finding remorse and repentance once death is knocking at the door.

I wonder if he felt the same about the treasonous activity with the Soviets he got involved with, and the abortion racket he helped build, and the destruction to the Republic he helped architect, and...

Mary Jo: "Ted, I know this news is going to put a crimp into your plans to be president...but, honey, I'm about two months along and I'm very Catholic in my belief. What are we going to do, darling?"

Ted: (Swerving all over the road)"Mary Jo, hic. Er ah, We'll just haaave to cross thaaht bridge when we come to it! Meanwhile, er ah, hic....pour me aanother glaas of that Chevis."

If it had been Karma..he would have had lung cancer..because it gets harder and harder to breathe.

Did he know he was guilty and feel it all of these years inside (thus all the alchohol, etc)...or did he feel no remorse because he was entitled to do whatever he wanted as he was a Kennedy.

What he did is a heavy cross to bear.

I still haven’t figured out how he got out of that car and the door was still shut.

It may have been intentional murder.

They sure didn’t want an autopsy.

His only regret was that he got caught and couldn’t get some other guy to take the rap for it. Maybe the same guy he tried to get to take a test for him at UVA law school...

This, I believe. If, however, he'd said:

he was never sexually involved with her

I'd have to say

In it, Kennedy said his actions on Chappaquiddick Island on July 18, 1969, were “inexcusable.” He said he was afraid and “made terrible decisions” and had to live with the guilt for more than four decades.

Kennedy drove off a bridge into a pond. He swam to safety, leaving Kopechne in the car.

Now don’t y’all feel bad for despising poor swimmer like that for all those years. poor man was almost paralyzed with guilt!
[yeah right....]

But he still thought he should be president.

If the moron had at least made an effort to save her, this might not have been an issue for him. Maybe he would have been the Demo nominee in ‘72. Whether he would have beaten Nixon, we will never know. Pretty sad to think the nation would elect him.

As a 9-year-old boy at the Riverdale Country School in New York, Kennedy said he would hide under his bed, petrified of a dorm master he thought was sexually abusive.

Hah ha....right, Ted, is that's why you always stood up for pedophiles? (Sounds to me like that dorm master would have made an excellent Democrat).

Well duhhh...he let her drown before he could get her back to the hotel room and take advantage of her.

Even then, we could argue that he was technically right, 'never romantically involved with her'. A play on words. How many one night stands did he count as 'romantic'? Taking advantage of the ladies (or however he worded it) might involve some shmoozing on his part to seduce them, but make no mistake, he himself didn't necessarily feel 'romantic'.

Ok, so thats why he would ask more often than not if anyone heard any new Chapaquiddic jokes over the last few years...

Yeah, that sounds remorseful...Not...

Of course Ed Klein,Teddy's very good friend and former editor of Newsweek,revealed just a few days after his death that Teddy used to joke......JOKE!!...about Mary Jo's death.

So....so much for remorse and regret.

Actually, the Scotch fumes emanating from Kennedy’s corpse are now being used to fuel the `eternal flame’ at his new Arlington digs.

I have no problem believing that.

However, that statement only solicits more related questions.

Did he lead her to believe he was romantically involved?
Did "romantically involved" imply sex.
Did they have sex without romantic involvement?
Did she believe she was romantically involved with him?
