America would have been much better off if teddy was the one who drowned that night.
To be fair, he's trying to get it by producing a book people will want to pay for.
Noting is more liberal than taking by force money from other people who worked hard to earn it.
People in my neighborhood,who all loved JFK, used to call Ted “The fat little brother”.
A new nickname for him then - we dub thee - pigbut.
nice ring kinda reminds one of manbearpig too...
It is impossible to “assassinate” something that never existed. There was no “character” in Ted Kennedy to even be assassinated.
What he was, turned out to be revealed over time, and history is not kind to fools.
“The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.”
Summing up, Ted Kennedy lived far too long.
Gabler wrote: "It is very possible that over time, through the osmosis of social media, the despicable Kennedy of this movie will eradicate the honorable if flawed real one,"
Correcting him: It is very possible that over time, through the dissemination of the truth - despite the media's attempts to suppress it, the despicable Kennedy that was real will eradicate the honorable if flawed fake one.
“...as anything but a tragic accident in which nothing much was covered up.”
Nothing much? Just a murder, that’s all. I hope the Lion of the Senate is enjoying his eternal slow turning barbecue with the devil’s spit up his ass and out his mouth with an apple in his mouth and cherries in his eye sockets. Wide awake.
That was just one of many such encounters for “Top Bread” Ted.
Oh he had lots of character. It was just all bad character.
Mary Jo Kopechne would disagree with the NYT’s assertions.
Oops, I forgot... She’s not here to do so.
The NYT deserves nothing but scorn.
She did not drown. She ran out of air while awaiting the Beast’s rescue ...
Which was far worse.
“In this version, the Kennedy character leaves Kopechne to die as she gasps for air, and then, with the aid of his brothers old advisers, cooks up a scheme to salvage his presidential ambitions.”
Kennedy left Kopechne, and she died. I can’t believe the poor girl wasn’t gasping for air towards the end.
Where exactly is the untruth here?
The radio ad cracked me up. I said “Contains graphic language and historical smoking”....... Historical smoking??
The truth hurts liberals.
40 Years Since Chappaquiddick; Ted Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne
Newsbusters.org ^July 18, 2009 | Rich Noyes
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, killed July 18, 1969 after leaving a party with Senator Edward Kennedy. That night, Kennedy drove his car off a bridge, and left the scene with Kopechne still in the submerged vehicle; he did not call the police until the following morning.
Over the course of the past four decades, the media elite have touted Kennedy as a liberal lion, spending far more time celebrating his ideological agenda than reminding people of his behavior that night in 1969. As Brent Baker noted in an op-ed back in 1999, the media have come to refer to Chappaquiddick as a Kennedy tragedy, not a Kopechne tragedy.
Perhaps the most egregious example of the liberal media planting a pro-Kennedy spin on Chappaquiddick came in a January 5, 2003 Boston Globe Magazine profile of Kennedy:
If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age, wrote the Globes Charles Pierce.
The quote was recognized as the worst of the year at the MRCs DisHonors Awards in 2004.

NY Times Op-Ed: Chappaquiddick Film Is Character Assassination of Ted Kennedy
As if the Corrupt, fat slob had any character to assassinate to begin with. Total Bullshit.
NYT complaining abort TK character abuse - roger wilco - directly over target, resume scrafing and bombing post haste.
Possibly yet another new nickname the
‘The fat little lyin brother’
I too believe the theory that Mary Jo was pregnant at the time of a possibly sleep-induced drowning. There are very many other interesting lose ends too. Like did the car crash and then later wind up in the pond - or did he crash it directly into the pond?
