The Neverending Remorse of Being Teddy

We mean, we constantly hear, without any evidence whatsoever (but if you expect that sort of thing from a liberal, then you’re even dumber than they are), in an attempt to downplay his 10 hour hiatus sleeping off his hangover, complaining about loud parties at his hotel and calling his lawyers while Mary Jo was slowly suffocating to death, how it’s all balanced out by the horrible weight of guilt and remorse that the Pussy of the Senate surely, surely felt for every single day of the rest of his life.

So here’s an example of how he dealt with that soul-crushing guilt:

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,

No, of course not. It’s like the repentant guilt on display from former SS guards who just couldn’t quit telling jokes about Jews and gas chambers for decades after the war. Because they cared, don’t you know?

And if you think that Ed Klein of the New York Slime is done digging, you’re wrong:

but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things, too.

See? Not only is cracking wise about the girl that he left to die while he was rummaging around in his luggage for Alka Seltzer proof that he was feeling so very, very guilty about it, it’s actually proof of what a wonderful person he was, constantly finding the funny and ridiculous side of murder, adultery, drunk driving, obstruction of justice etc.

What a mensch!

By the way: Did you know that, with the news of Ted’s death, Harry Reid announced another “shovel ready project” for Porkulus?

See? I care too!

    The guilt dispalyed by The Swimmer since 1969 was overwhelming…why, the man should have been give a Nobel prize for his selflessness. If we could all be more like Senator Kennedy, this world would be so much more perfect. Unicorns dancing in the streets, Pixie dust as far as the eye could see and the air would be rife with the smell of moonbeams and lollipops. Too bad he had to leave us at such a young age and with so much more to accomplish.

    Ahhhhh……..to finally say something kind about the bloated maggot on the teat of America. May he rot in hell and we all go to Washington at least once to piss on his grave.

    He couldn’t down enough booze to ease his pain – not that he didn’t try. Even molesting waitresses couldn’t assuage the massive guilt that engulfed him. The only thing that seemed to help was his hypocrisy:

    “Do we operate under a system of equal justice under law? Or is there one system for the average citizen and another for the high and mighty?”

    I can’t wait for the the JEMNIC’s eulogy. How many words into it will it stop being about Teddy and become all about Barry?

    I just hope there is someone at the funeral to drive a stake into his black heart.

    Priceless!

    Can we get Swimma disinterred from Arlington after the next election cycle? I’m still reeling over that–how exactly does he qualify? Oh yeah, no one has to QUALIFY for anything any more, saith JEMNIC.

    Now that he’s shuffled off of this mortal coil can we start naming bridges after him?

    From what I heard, since he servered during the Korean war, never advancing beyond the rank of Private, in Europe, not in Korea, Joe was his daddy don’t you know

    Since Captain Chappaquiddick apparently liked jokes about cars, bridges and death, we’ll oblige him, yet again.

    “Did you know that Ted Kennedy wrote a bill for bailing out the auto industry?”

    “He walked it up the Hill to the House, but ended up leaving it to die on the floor.”

    Are they going to use an excavator, or just dig the grave employing 50 guys with shovels. At Union wages it’ll cost about the same, but if they use shovels the employment may bleed over into the next fiscal quarter giving Obambi another dubious “fact” that the stimulus is working.

    Sick of all the fawning over him having done so much for the country and how one mistake should not be so exaggerated. One mistake……he killed someone. He cold-heartedly took the life of another. But that is not the only “mistake” that Teddy made over the years. Cheating on an exam at Harvard – how many of us would be allowed back into a university after that? The fact that he openly did not want to marry Joan but did so because his father and her father made him because it would be bad publicity for either family. The lying and cheating he committed against Joan which helped to her addiction(I say helped because she has to own her own problems). The number of women he just used and tossed away, some without them being completely willing(yes, I said it he forced women). What a stand up Uncle he was to go out trolling with his nephew and then help him cover-up a rape. The things he helped cover-up for other nephews and nieces. Please note I have not even had to mention the political stuff he pulled.
    I read on another site how they are upset that so many are not being respectful and such……all I can do is remember how some reacted when President Reagan passed – popping champaign and joking.
    Teddy may have been a loving father and uncle(though he screwed up that a little) but he was despot of the worst kind.
    To hear that he cracked jokes and laughed about Mary Jo’s death doesn’t even shock me.

    Kennedy. The very surname makes my stomach turn. (No offense to any of you who have that last name but aren’t actually related to the Swimmer or his family.)

    What is the origin of the surname “Kennedy”? Neal Boortz has mentioned that it’s worth looking into.

    According to Ask.com it’s “helmet head”, however I’ve heard it referred to as “big head”, “large head”…ect.

    Guess he was a real Kennedy.

    Celebrating the death of a fallen enemy at my house this weekend. Pinatas and margaritas to be served. Now I have to have a “Best Ted Kennedy” joke competition.

    I love how the Dems want to “Do it for Teddy”. They accuse us of disrespecting the dead? The man lived a life of tragedy, failure, and treason, and now one of the most potentially destructive bills for this country ever is up for consideration, and they want to make its infliction on the nation an act of tribute?

    Now that Teddy has gone on to his final reward and can no longer ignore the truths he so conveniently skirted in life, I swear I can almost hear his voice shouting “NO!!!! Haven’t I got enough to answer for?????”

    As I believe I’ve noted here before, it reportedly means “ugly head.” :em93: “Big head” would be “Canmore” in Scots Gaelic, anyway, & there are Kennedys there too. Of course, thanks maybe to Conan O’Brien’s running joke about the size of the Senaturd’s head, we’ve long called him Big-Head Ted around here. :em02:

    Now I have to have a “Best Ted Kennedy” joke competition.

    a man calls Kennedy’s office and asks for the senator. the receptionist says ” i’m sorry, Senator Kennedy is dead”. the man says thank you and hangs up.
    the next day the man calls back, same thing, ” may i speak with the senator?”. ” i’m sorry sir, Senator Kennedy is dead.” ” thank you”.
    on the third day he calls again and the receptionist recognizes his voice and asks why he keeps calling back, “the Senator is dead.” “i know”, he says ” i just haven’t gotten tired of hearing it.”

    Every time I hear of the Kennedys, I wonder what they would be like today if Joseph Kennedy, Jr. had survived. Unlike Teddy, Joe Jr. served with distinction in WWII and died in a mission he fully understood was exceptionally dangerous, yet volunteered for anyway.

    Mary Jo Kopechne said to Teddy “What will we do about the baby”:

    “Never mind” Teddy said “We will cross that bridge when we come to it”

    This is off topic, but I just have to say it…Some moonbat today said that the rain in Boston is God crying because of the death of Ted Kennedy. No.He.isn’t. He is spitting.

    I disagree with the poster’s conclusion: God isn’t spitting on Ted Kennedy’s funeral, He is taking a whiz on them after having drunk a celebratory beer. :em03:

    The dog was named for Chappaquiddick.
