It's YTedK Day...

...but why not yesterday? It was on July 18, 1969 that Teddy drove off a paved road onto a dirt path and off a narrow wooden bridge into ten feet of water at Poucha Pond. Yet we remember the incident on July 19th. Why? It is because it was ten hours later, on July 19th, before Mr. Kennedy reported the "accident" to police. During this time, Mary Jo Kopechne suffocated.

For the record, Ol' BC has visited the Chappaquiddick site. There is no way Teddy boy took a wrong turn without realizing what had happened no matter how drunk he may have been. He turned off a nice paved road onto a dirt path. Within ten feet he would have realized the error if in fact it was an error.

The penalty? Teddy received a two months suspended sentence and lost his drivers license for one year for leaving the scene of an accident.

Mary Jo Kopechne was unable to testify.

Strangely enough, Senator Kennedy in one of his mighty orations asked in 1973, "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?"

Did he really need to ask that?

Just a thought.

I used to date with the attiude that, while there was a young lady on the car with me, I was responsible for her safety.

Kennedy's first thought was for his own wrinkled old ass. His second thought? Get out of sight and stay that way until he sobered up. A US senator can't be drinking and driving after all, can he?

Of course, our president couldn't be an alcoholic cocaine fiend either, could he?

I really wish people would just admit that they are all a bunch of criminals in sheeps clothing.

Loin, you moron-

Prove it. That's all- prove it, or shut up.

Well, Trip, I could reverse that. Prove Kennedy was drunk.

You're joking, right? The man is a known drunk.

You think he was at a party all night and wasn't drinking?

Add fool to your list of descriptors.

Wow. What a retort. Well, Bush is a self-confessed alcoholic, so touche.

NO, he's not- and this isn't about Bush anyway, dimwit.

Bush confessed to have drank either excessively or irresponsibly- but he's never copped to being an alcoholic. That's just something you'd like to add to your assessment of him.
