Kennedy boat capsized in Lake Michigan
Chicago Tribune ^ | August 31, 2010 | Duaa Eldeib

Posted on 09/01/2010 8:40:42 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

It may not make for good conspiracy theory fodder, but a sunken Kennedy boat sure has a certain ring to it.

River Maiden, a 59-foot steel boat registered to Max Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy, sank into the north slip of Lake Michigan between Rainbow Beach and the Calumet River on June 12, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

It's still there.

Well, first thing that occurs to me, is why is the boat at the bottom of the lake? Why did it sink? Was it an accident? Was it reported to authorities? Did this Kennedy leave the scene of an accident? Is there some reason this Kennedy is happy to leave the boat out of sight? Does he not care to report the incident to his insurance company? Was that boat involved in a pleasure cruise or something a Kennedy would rather not talk about?

The Kennedy’s—can’t drive, can’t fly, can’t pilot ships or boats. Can’t trust them with babysitters or booze. And yet, they’re still one of America’s leading political families. When will we boot these people out of public life and into prison, where they belong?

Is there something in that boat, or something about the circumstances, which the Kennedy family would like to hide?

Kennedy’s can’t drive boats, cars, snow ski, or pilot aircraft.

Of course it does still make it a tragic waste doesn't it...

I can thank God every day I was not born into that family.

Joe Kennedy, the father, was such an evil sh*t that I think they have bad karma going out til the resurrection.

“”This is strictly Max Kennedy’s issue,” McCaffery said. “It’s floating on top (of the water) but upside down.”

Kennedy, who could not be reached for comment, flew in from Los Angeles as soon as he heard the boat had capsized to ensure there was no “environmental leakage of any sort,” McCaffery said. He added that he heard Kennedy ordered a barge to lift the boat out of the water around Labor Day.

“I really think it’s under control,” McCaffery said, “but it has taken a bit too long.”

I love that picture, but it's been debunked as related to JFK.

It's from a Playboy photospread in the sixties about naked chicks on a yacht. The JFKish looking dude is just some guy on a boat.

You can tell it's not a Kennedy boat, because the chicks are still alive.

Oh that's a regular thing for Howie Carr... he always mentions FR and gives full credit if he finds something juicy there. Whereas we all know Rush uses FR for show prep (at least sometimes), but he rarely mentions it... ;-)

I dislike America's queasy-Royal family as much as the anyone but this photo has been proven fake in regards to the Kennedys. It was from a 1967 Playboy spread and TMZ has confirmed it. Yes, JFK was still dead at that time.

Cars, boats, young women...

The Kennedys are historic craftsmen at this sort of thing.

They have learned that liquor makes everything go down better...
