On Hannity and Colmes, While discussing the requirements of a Supreme Court nominee, Ann just sarcastically noted that it was ok to kill a girl at Chappiquiddic. Colmes said that was a low blow and that comment was below her.
WHY??? WHAT is so darned SACRED about mentioning the truth???
Ann said, "Why..."
Colmes didn't answer, and the set was quiet.
Hannity and Reagan (another guest) should have spoken up.
This is another example of "The Emperor is NAKED!"
Then why are you ignoring the fact that he deliberately left the scene of the accident?
Note I said accident, because that is what it was until that point. After running away, he began to implement a scheme to cover-up his deliberately leaving a girl to die.
Hey, it's quality vs. quantity at this point. But I can't make that decision. I'm not a Zotctor.
He's dead, jim.
If you can "conveniently" overlook ONE HUMAN LIFE, let alone Teddy K's politics, then you are obviously either a troll or fooling yourself by participating on this website.
Care to explain yourself?
Just ask Baalam.
I don't see how Mary Jo Kopechne's death could possibly be considered an accident, a tragic accident. Guess it depends on which story you believe.
No one deserves to get away with that, he has never answered for it. He deserves torment. He torments other people all the time, like the judges.
I can claim that Jabba PURPOSELY left her in the car to die, because she was still alive for many minutes after he crawled his sorry ass away from the scene AND THEN SHE DIED AND THAT PART WAS NO ACCIDENT!
I've seen drunks turn suddenly sober from the adrenalin rush and aid someone who needed it. Most people don't lose certain key characteristics of their personality even if they are drunk. If it happens, it's vanishingly rare. Teddy didn't lose any of the key components of his personality. If he were caring and compassionate, he'd have tried to help even though drunk. Instead he was ruthlessly calculating and showed no regard for human suffering or the sanctity of life. Just like he does on the Senate floor today.
I'm not the first to point out your intellectual dishonesty.
You are being dishonest when you call his deliberately running away, and scheming to cover-up an accident.
It was a CRIME. IIRC, Kennedy even lost his license for a year.
He certainly cared about this person
All I can say is that if I knew that someone -- even someone I didn't particulary like -- was trapped underwater in a car, I'd call for a rescue squad.
If they were burning to death how could you save them? Sorry to pick nits.
BTW, the fact that people here call a spade a spade and point out that Kennedy was a coward does not make anyone here look bad. What Kennedy did, or rather what he did not do is open for commentary. It's absurd to say that any comments about Kennedy make anyone here look mean or nasty. Let's ask Mary Jo's corpse what it thinks......
As best I can tell Mary Jo agrees with those of us that look at Kennedy and want to puke becuase he's been given a pass because his brothers both got shot to death while in public office. I mean really, that's the deal, because Ted is a Kennedy and his bothers got dead the media have given the fat pig a pass. And they let him do or say whatever he pleases. Well, that goes both ways and people here have the same right to say Kennedy is the coward he is and always has been.
My other point: Why separate Teddy's politcs from his past sins? Why argue these points? We can all agree that the guy is evil. You are splitting hairs here. Perhaps trying to stir up trouble?
What are you talking about?
I'm the one who said that attacking Kennedy over an accident that happened years ago proves people have no ability to mount an attack on his politics.
I can't believe you made such a weak attempt to repeat my own argument against me. It makes no sense in this context.
Well since he's a US Senator I can't speak specifically about him. But such behavior would make me want to turn the spiritual side into vapor and the physical side into mush.
In my post earlier the author asked how did he manage to get out of the car and she didn't? He is over 6' tall and she is 5'2!
Pretty thorough list.
Under most circumstances I would agree with you, but he occupies a very high position with very much power. He has lied and slandered many people over the years. Spiritually though you are correct, but reason and politics say he needs to be put in his place and taken out of the game. I don't know if it ultimately justifies criticism of this nature but that is the game they play.
How about you admitting you are not bothering to read the posts to you, because you 'know' all about it?
An unfortunate accident can happen to anyone, but how many of us would run away to fine a lawyer before we would help our passenger or call for medical help? The man ran. And left his hapless date to die.
Please answer this:
If you drove your car into the water and one of your passengers did not surface would you:
a) Try to save them
b) Call the police
c) Find the nearest person to help save her
d) Go have some beer and pizza and call the police the next day.
...dead... Prepare for ZOT. Stand BACK people. It's going to be a big one.
Tell me this- are you sincerely criticizing FReepers for taking Teddy K to task for MURDERING a human being?
Did you simply want us to overlook this "minor" aspect of his life, and perhaps focus more on his Senate voting record?
LOL! Great pun.
Overall, you bethca!!
I have to wonder, since Kennedy was so compromised by this, if he never would have been such an evil salesman for all our freedom grabbing enemies around the world.
He had been married for over 10 years when this happened. I assume this just adds to why the left and people Jorge love him so much
This one you really lose and you also expose yourself. Ted Kennedy's politics have been thoroughly discredited on the debate on this forum for 7 years. This thread is about Kennedy's personal behavior. Get thee hence. You really don't belong here.
It's not his fault he was out partying without his wife...
It's not his fault he was trying to nail some chick who wasn't his wife..
It's not his fault he took her back home to his place...
It's not his fault he was drunk..
It's not his fault he got in the car with the girl anywa...
It's not his fault he drove off the bridge...
It's not his fault he ran away..
It's not his fault there was an air pocket that kept her alive for ate least 30 minutes...
It's not his fault he didn't flag anyone down for help..
Can you see John Wayne doing these things?
Can you see your average man doing these things?
WTF is wrong with you?
Circa 1970, after Chappaquidick, I remember my family reading a book titled "Teddy Bare", an expose of Teddy and the other Kennedys. My family disliked the Kennedys and their legacy. (No wonder I ended up on FR!)
No matter how you look at Chappaquiddick, one good point is that it keeps fat Teddy from running for President. You can bet that if he ever ran, Chappaquiddick would surface all over the place like a plague.
Do you have other facts than those that have been posted? I'm open to reading them if that is the case. If they're the same, don't bother yourself.
I'm trying to stir up the consciences of people who have jumped onto this Cappaquiddic bandwagon.
"Separate" it from his politics?
It has absolutely NOTHING to do with his politics.
And those who resort to these kinds of attacks look like they are unable to address the REAL problems with Ted Kennedy's politics.
In any case it is hateful, meanspirited and boring.
Are you serious? How could I NOT save them?
You have just proven that you really have no point, other than to try to point fingers at people who know right from wrong. I know, it must hurt to be unable to delineate between the two.
Give it time, you'll learn.
I'm beginning to think Jorge is really Ted Kennedy using an alias. lol
This is true.
Huh? Society is suffering under a lack of conscience for poor Ted Kennedy? ROFLMAO.
Oh, NOW I get it. You're playing the demented Liberal idiot.
Had me going there for awhile.
LOL! I copied your dead horse award. Great one!!!
I have the right to, until the end of my days, point out that I THINK O.J. killed his wife, and I THINK Ted Kennedy didn't try to help his friend and left her to drown in his car. And I think Terri Shavio was starved to death.
This is a free country and I have a right to say what I THINK. If we all repeat the politically correct (PC) sentiments, we are doomed. Remember the "Emperor's New Clothes"?
You have a point. I recall an exchange a few months ago when Senator Ted Kennedy was severely questioning Rumsfeld. He was asking why had he not found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Rumsfeld answered something to the effect that someone might not find a bridge in the middle of the night and wind up in a lake, but that does not mean that the bridge was never there.
Then Senator Kennedy abruptly discontinued his questions.
How far into the show did Ann appear?
It was near the end.
:-) She's worth the wait!
Why are you occupying so much time being bored? You're welcome to stop posting on this thread.
