    "I don't know if you know this or not, but one of his favorite topics of humor was indeed Chappaquiddick itself. And he would ask people, "have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick?" That is just the most amazing thing. It's not that he didn't feel remorse about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things, too.<br>

    If this is true, he was a real monster.

    Yeah, if it was true.



    How can it be proven? Couldn't have been a smear campaign, right?

    Does any of this really surprise you? His daddy had no conscience or remorse while destroying the lives of many, many people.....He smashed others for sport, why should we expect any more from his children. Lets hope this is finally the end of their raping and pillaging our country.

    Smear campaign? I would have expected a right winger to have made that accusation, not a media mogul.<br>

    Perhaps that explains why he named his Portuguese water dog "Splash", like some sort of sick, twisted joke?

    A St. Louis radio commentator read from the DC court records about Chris and Teddy having a private dinner together. Both were charged with sexual battery when they attacked their private waitress - each holding her down for the other. She pressed charges and Teddy and Chris used their powerful offices to make the suit go away.

    I'd say MONSTER is a pretty good description.

    Thanks Barry,

    I've heard the jokes about Teddy being compared to a Orea cookie, sandwiching a waitess with another person.

    Now I know the story behind the joke!

    I know he wasn't in the Military but he should gotten a burial at sea. Would have been ironic and the libs wouldn't have a grave to site to worship him...Bill

    This is not the past, it is the present. His burial was a full-day eulogy today on the television. The media has been covering his life story, so that makes his life AND his past relevant TODAY.

    Hey "idiot" 421, if you're concerned about the soldiers we lost in Afghanistan, ask the dumocrats. They were virtually 100% FOR the war in Afghanistan, AND STILL ARE!

    What's your problem? Are you allergic to doing the research yourself?



    "The Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (Pub.L. 107-40, 115 Stat. 224, enacted September 18, 2001), one of two resolutions commonly known as "AUMF" (the other being "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002"), was a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress on September 18, 2001, authorizing the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001. The authorization granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. The AUMF was signed by President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001."




    House of Representatives
    On September 14, 2001 bill House Joint Resolution 64 passed in the House. The totals in the House of Representatives were: 420 Ayes, 1 Nay and 10 Not Voting (the Nay was Barbara Lee - D-CA).


    Senate
    On September 14, 2001 Senate Joint Resolution 23 passed in the Senate by roll call vote. The totals in the Senate were: 98 Ayes, 0 Nays, 2 Present/Not Voting (Senators Larry Craig - R and Jesse Helms - R).

    And, from hussein, referring to the war in Afghanistan, in response to declining support for the war, even from his fellow liberals.


    "The US President yesterday invoked the memory of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the US to justify military involvement that could extend for a further decade.

    "We must never forget," Mr Obama said. "This is not a war of choice. This is a war of necessity. Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting to do so again."

    "If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which al-Qa'ida would plot to kill Americans. So this is not only a war worth fighting. This is fundamental to the defence of our people."

    Bill, in point of fact, Ted Kennedy did indeed serve in the military. He was in the Army and served as an MP during the Korean War, though he was not stationed in Korea.

    Brian in Oregon it's amazing that you can find something to complain about when the biggest complaint you have is buried. Forty years is a long time to hold a grudge. No one thinks the death of a young person is ok. However, when the war in Iraq was totally for profit of the republicans and their war machine companies you hold no malice for that. This is a tradgedy. Our nation was duped into going to war so the oil companies could regain their control of the oil fields that Saddam had nationalized and you say nothing. Shame on you for making the Iraq war a political statement. We have lost nearly 5000 soldiers in that war for profit yet you complain none. Your bitch is about a car wreck from 40 years ago. Thanks for keeping us up to date on current events. Dan

    Hitler has been dead longer than that and he was a murder also. Is there a difference between killing one person or a million? It is not in my mind. Hitler should have been jailed for the first person he murdered and so should have Kennedy.

    Wait a minute! I don't think Hitler was ever found guilty of pulling the trigger on a gun or the switch to a gas chamber on another person, so in some people's twisted mind, it makes him innocent because he was not found guilty.

    Incredible.<br>

    Simply incredible.<br>

    My "bitch" is about using power and money to get out of a conviction for criminally negligent homicide, and failure to seek emergency aid for hours, not a "car wreck".<br>
    <br>
    The rest of your illogical rant is non sequitur. However, if you are blaming the war on Republicans, then you are either ignorant of, or are conveniently overlooking, just how many Democrats voted to support the war.<br>
    <br>
    No wonder people like Ted Kennedy get elected and reelected, and why we have politicians who feel they are above the "little people", when the "little people" fail to hold them accountable for their actions.
