Heroes are villains.
Villains are heroes.

The world truly is upside-down.

She was the first person I thought about when I heard the news.

And then I couldn't help wonder what sort of medical care he received over the last months of his life.

Does that make me a horrible person?

No, it means you're drinking something other than Kool-aid.
And I have a name to call you girl...
Recidivist!
Weren't you giving this politics business a vacation?
Get outta here!

every since i I was old enough to understand, I have never failed to remember her name when Ted Kennedy's name was on the news. Excuse me if I don't worship him, but I always think of him as a coward and a dirtbag. His death does not change that. He let a young girl drown, because he was drunk and lacked the courage to save her in just a few feet of water. he appeared in public the next day in a fake neck brace and got away with manslaughter because of his last name, forgive me if I don't get down on my knees and worship him like the rest of the leftist lackeys do. rest in peace Mary Jo.

GB -

Yeah, yeah.

I'm going.

But I couldn't not say anything about Senator Kennedy's passing.

I also thought of her when I heard TK died. I also thought of the free pass he got for killing her. He could have save her life with just a little effort. I suppose he will be sent off like some sort of hero.

An overlooked part of this story is that Teddy was invited by NASA to attend the Apollo 11 launch--which made sense, since his brother made the commitment to put a man on the moon by 1970--but he chose to attend the Chappaquiddick event instead.

Well, that showed us what his priorities were.
