Hooray! Justice is Served!
by Howie Carr, Boston Herald 3/2/14

Of course Kerry Kennedy was acquitted.

How many times have you read the headline: “Ethel Kennedy Appears in Court for (fill in the name of this month’s family defendant)?” A couple of days later the inevitable follow-up headline appears: “Kennedy Acquitted.”

After the jury found her not guilty Friday on drugged-driving charges in Westchester County, N.Y., Kerry Kennedy said, “I’m just very, very, very grateful that justice was done.”

And she should know something about justice, because she runs the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

She’s a “human rights advocate.” Nice work if you can get it.

Kerry is one of the Beautiful People. She once wrote a book titled “Speak Truth to Power.” From what we know now about her, a more appropriate title might have been, “Slur Truth to Power.”

Oh sure, over time the Kennedy family M.O. has evolved. The clan’s drug of choice used to be Chivas Regal, now it’s Ambien. It used to be just the Kennedy men cheated on their spouses. Now it’s the women too — Kerry got caught with a polo player.

(Her lawyers described her as a “devout Catholic,” which by Kennedy standards, she may well be. After she dumped her polo player boy toy, Kerry penned another book, “Being Catholic Now.”)

But like all Kennedys down through the ages, she couldn’t pass the field sobriety test. And of course the traditional thick-Irish-brogue priest appeared as a character witness. Somewhere, Msgr. Jeremiah P. O’Mahoney of St. Edward’s Church in Palm Beach must be smiling.

And naturally the family’s bloody shirt was waved. Her father, “Daddy,” was murdered when she was 8 years old. “He was running for president.”

Her uncle, JFK, was the president who famously said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.”

Her other uncle, Teddy, never became president, because he famously found out that a rising tide does not lift all Oldsmobiles.

Her lawyer was Gerald Lefcourt, who took time out from his usual practice of defending Black Panthers, rap moguls, crooked Albany pols and junk-bond billionaires to represent the former Mrs. Andrew Cuomo.

In a raspy voice that makes her sound more like Ethanol than Ethel Kennedy, Kerry thanked her hired guns, saying, incredibly, “Most people don’t have access to that and we need to take a hard look at our criminal justice system in the United States to make sure that it really is just and that everyone, everyone in our country has true access to justice.”

Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.

Rudyard Kipling wrote that “There comes a night when the best get tight.” With the Kennedys, it seems to happen more and more often in the morning. But what’s the big deal? Oh sure, Ethanol Kennedy rear-ended a truck, blew out a tire and then rode on the rim of her Lexus SUV wheel for miles on an interstate before finally slamming into a guard rail.

But unlike her uncle, she didn’t drown anybody. Unlike her brother, she didn’t cripple anybody. On a Kennedy-family scale of 1-to-10, this fender-bender barely rated a 2.

Friday morning, as Ethel and Ethanol walked away from the bank of microphones in front of the Westchester courthouse, a reporter yelled out a final question: “What are you going to do now?”

“Celebrate” Ethel replied.

Another Kennedy beats the rap! Neck braces on the house!

Literary genius.

Will the peasants never learn?

In a feudal society, such as Sicily, Ireland, Poland, the England of Henry VIII, and Massholia under the Kennedy Klan, the nobles offer those whom the Lord hath placed beneath them a modicum of food, clothing,shelter, meaningful work, and protection from Viking raiders. Since there are no longer any Viking raiders, this last has been replaced by entertainment.

Since the nobles are empowered to steal from the merchant class, there isn't even any need for many of the peasants to work. All is provided in exchange for adulation. People like this Carr creature are nothing more than heretics. They are a danger to the realm and must be suppressed, faggots piled around their feet, and toasted on the stake.

Amen.

Anyone who was married to Andrew Cuomo is allowed to take drugs and have a few snorts before bedtime.

Besides looking like Lou Ferrigno and sporting an IQ that will never break triple digits, Andy got no like ... personality.

All in all, they were pretty well matched. No offspring, thank Darwin.

You are my hero. I promise never to swim beyond the surf line again! Next time I see Howie out for drinks in Yarmouthport, I'll be sure and mention your sterling efforts.

Ugh, is this McScreamer that Howie is punishing us with today??

Yesterday's sub - Steve Deace - was pretty good. I was hoping we could hear him again today.

The two ladies who filled in on Monday and Tuesday weren't bad, but I couldn't listen to them for 5 straight days.

McScreamer?? Thanks a lot, Howie. Radio is off! :-(

Yeah though I did listen to McScreamer a little while because of the topic. The two ladies are Boston Herald columnists who are also part of the papers’ online station, Boston Herald Radio. Hadn’t heard of Deace before but he does do a national show.. http://stevedeace.com/radio-affiliates/ is a list of his affiliates (scroll down a bit). Only New Eng affiliate is WGAW AM in Gardner (north central MA) though not sure how accurate that is (WGAW site is http://www.wgaw1340.com and they seem to run Ingraham, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller, Michael Savage, Mark Levin etc)

Where has Avi Nelson been? Who makes the decisions regarding substitute hosts? The other day Howie made it clear he’s had nothing to do with the losers they’ve been putting on in his absence.

Yes, the tough broad from Eastie. That is a guarantee that I’ll flip to WBUR or WBZ...or perhaps Bloomberg. Last week makes me wonder if a conscious decision has been made not to have Avi Nelson back on the station.

Sandy mentioned to Howie on air that Steve Deace won’t be back (he had put on someone “playing” the late Margaret Sanger without mentioning it). Maybe that was decided by RKO management. Years ago Jerry Williams had someone like Jay Charbonneau on playing “the governor” (Dukakis at the time) and they didn’t announce it was an impersonation/comedy bit and some people were troubled by it (couldn’t tell...); same may have happened with Steve Sweeney as Kevin White, the mayah o’ the schitty o’Borston. Oddly enough one day Howie did have Gov Patrick on—the real Gov. Patrick, despite it being April Fools’ Day.

Yeah I don’t know if the RKO bigwigs (guy named Kevin Graham in charge now) put forth the fill ins and I, too, miss Avi. Not sure if he’s on at all. Currently former bosses Jason Wolfe and Julie Kahn are helping out former WEEI host Glenn Ordway who is doing online-only (and XM CH 108 starting Mon.) sports talk Big Show Unfiltered. And since it’s online, you can indeed hear the S and the F words.

I heard Howie “heart like an alligator” moment when both Kahn and Wolfe departed. He does not suffer fools gladly.

Sandy mentioned to Howie on air that Steve Deace won’t be back (he had put on someone “playing” the late Margaret Sanger without mentioning it).

I heard that live and thought it was fantastic, albeit very chilling, if you weren't aware of Margaret Sanger's dubious history. (I am aware of her history with eugenics, etc.). I'll bet several listeners learned something new that day... ;-)

Overall I liked what I heard from Steve Deace. He struck me as kind of like a young Glenn Beck.

Except for Deace, Howie's subs were awful last week. Listened to a little of the two young women on Monday and Tuesday (meh, too much chattering), enjoyed Deace's show on Wednesday. As usual, in the first few seconds of hearing McScreamer's horrific voice, off went the radio!

I was hoping we would be treated to the great Jeff Kuhner, or usual Howie subs Avi Nelson and Col. David Hunt. Good to hear Howie again this week. Wish WRKO would build Howie a studio in Florida!

Now the question is who fills in for Howie tomorrow and if Avi is permanently off the air. It would be interesting to know who exactly (Bill Cooksey?) makes the substitute host calls. He told one caller the other day that it wasn’t his call. I can see why he is frustrated with RKO.

IS Avi permanently off the air? I hope not...

Ugh, McScreamer in for Howie yesterday... I wasn't expecting that. Radio promptly went OFF as usual. Howie had better be in today... Grr!

I don’t know if Avi is perm. off yet but when I tuned in yesterday and heard Michele I thought oh that’s right, Howie said on Tue that he’d be off Thu since he was to speak at Billerica library

Yes, I don’t think dropping a few comments via email or written letter would hurt. I was thinking of going to the GOAL dinner tomorrow night to ask Howie what exactly is going on with Avi. They can’t think Eastie’s tough broad is a better substitute.

For those in central MA etc., you occasionally got Howie pre-empted by Red Sox on WCRN 830. Not anymore—no longer carrying Sox games (like today’s 3 pm opening day game, or Friday’s
home opener). AM 1440 WVEI is the sole Worc. affiliate of the Sox now.
