At tonight’s meeting of the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane about all that hype over the opening of that big Chappaquiddick movie on Friday.
“Variety’s film review says the film shows what happened at Chappaquiddick was even worse than we think,” Kane explained. “Kopechne’s body was found in a position that implied that she was struggling to keep her head out of the water. And what the film suggests is that once the car turned upside down, she didn’t die; she was alive and then drowned, after a period of time, as the water seeped in. This makes Edward Kennedy’s decision not to report the crime a clear-cut act of criminal negligence — but in spirit (if not legally), it renders it something closer to an act of killing.”
Compassionate Conservative Stu Mahlin said, “it’s been nearly half a century since Teddy drove his Oldsmobile into the water at Chappaquiddick which caused the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, and he waited until the next day before reporting the incident to the local police. Edward Cropper remembered the incident, and you can see more of Mr. Cropper’s fine work HERE.
Back in the day, Chappaquiddick got a lot of coverage.
Yet even today, more than a few mean-spirited Republicans are still asking why Teddy Kennedy was never prosecuted, because Mary Jo Kopechne would be 68 years old if she’d lived, and through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age.
Hurley the Historian says, “On August 25, it will be the ninth anniversary of Ted Kennedy’s sobriety. Can you even imagine such an accomplishment? Our Chappaquiddick Lifeguard has now been sober for nearly nine years!
Newsweek’s Ed Klein (told interviewer) Katty Kay about Kennedy’s love of humor: How the late senator loved to hear and tell Chappaquiddick jokes, and was always eager to know if anyone had heard any new ones. Not that Kennedy lacked remorse, Klein quickly added, seeming to intuit that my jaw and perhaps those of other listeners had just hit the floorboards. I gather it was a self-deprecating maneuver on Kennedy’s part, exercised with the famous Kennedy charm, though it sounds like one of those “I guess you had to have been there” things.
You want to talk about legacies? Mary Jo Kopechne died while she tried to free herself from Teddy Kennedy’s submerged automobile in a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island. That’s a legacy for you!
And according to R. P. George and D. Quinn at National Review On-line (Chappaquiddick Revisited: Liberals still lionize Ted Kennedy. Forty years ago, he revealed his true character): The anniversary of Mary Jo’s death passed with scarcely a word’s being mentioned of it in the Liberal Media. Perhaps it was not just a matter of liberal bias. With Senator Kennedy then seriously ill, didn’t need that excuse not to bring up the subject.
But The Blower reported the 40th anniversary of Teddy’s splashdown at Chappaquiddick. We also carried Dead Kennedy Fan Tino Delgato’s comment: Teddy Kennedy let his mistress (Mary Joe Kopechne) drown while he wandered home drunk. Teddy gets the Medal of Freedom. Go figure!!!
In Yorktown, our Virginia Vigilante said he believed the ultimate final tribute to Teddy’s legacy should’ve been to have his body cremated, putting the ashes in an empty bottle of Chivas Regal, and tossing it in the Chappaquiddick River. It’s too bad that old bastard croaked before having a death panel consultation. (Oh yeah, Congress exempted themselves from those too.) There goes another Clunker in Congress to the “Liberal Junkyard.”
And if you think that’s just a tad harsh, check out the editor’s note on the August 26, 2009 edition of the Patriot Post: If it were a matter of mere political disagreement, we would join the calls to strike a conciliatory tone and mourn the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy. But we do a disservice to him and the country to call him anything but what he was. Ted Kennedy was not a good man and we mourn the damage (or worse) he did both to individuals and to America.
[These days The Blower is wondering how long it will take until we can finally figure out Obama’s total damage to the nation.]

Teddy Kennedy’s Chappequiddick Lie
Ted Kennedy making excuses for driving drunk and causing Mary Jo Kopechne to drown in his overturned car. The water was only about six feet deep with no current based on police reports at the time. Police diver John Farrar’s testimony suggested that she survived for as long as two hours in the submerged automobile by breathing a pocket of trapped air. Kennedy spent the nine hours after the accident attempting to cover-up his involvement, while Mary Jo Kopechne was left to die in his submerged automobile.
Isn’t it amazing how many of these facts were never known or have been completely forgotten by all those Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Supporters Who Put The Positively Worst President in History In The White House—Twice, and Failed Trying To Give Obama a Third Term By Voting For Hillary, and get all of their “fake news” from our Obama Supporters in the Press, like the ones at The Fishwrap and on Channel 5, 9, 12, and 19.
