Pssst, Progs! He Was A Magnificent Bastard, Not A Murderer. Big Diff!

Stop acting so hurt, hypocrites."

According to Kennedy’s FBI file, he was more than a “special pile of human excrement.” He met with the Soviets in an attempt to undermine both the Carter and Reagan administrations. Oh, and there was clear and convincing evidence of it.

I sought a second opinion, but Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.   Certainly, she deserved better than to be left in a submerged car to die while a drunk Senator Ted Kennedy ran away to salvage his political career. She surely didn’t deserve to be written off, dismissed, excused, etc., as the Left did for decades. I wonder how her parents felt every time they heard the sanctimonious pontifications emanating from the Lyin' of the Senate. You?  I heard that her father was grateful that, at least, Teddy Kennedy would never be POTUS.

That reminds me of a wonderful example of the honourable Left:  From the Huffington Post’s Melissa Lafsky, “The Footnote Speaks: What Would Mary Jo Kopechne Have Thought of Ted’s Career?”:

"Mary Jo wasn’t a right-wing talking point or a negative campaign slogan. She was a dedicated civil rights activist and political talent with a bright future — granted, whenever someone dies young, people sermonize about how he had a “bright future” ahead of him — but she actually did. She wasn’t afraid to defy convention (28 and unmarried, oh the horror!) or create her own career path based on her talents. She lived in Georgetown (where I grew up) and loved the Red Sox (we’ll forgive her for that). Then she got in a car driven by a 36-year-old senator with an alcohol problem and a cauldron full of demons, and wound up a controversial footnote in a dynasty.

We don’t know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she’d have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don’t know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.

Still, ignorance doesn’t preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn’t automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted’s death, and what she’d have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it."

(Evidently, Feminism = Taking one for the men’s team!)

For a Feminist on the Left to call Mary Jo Kopechne “The Footnote” while praising the bastard right after he died still makes me want to puke.

When you turn up a dead, promising, young woman with a “bright future” associated with Breitbart and then have some right-winger positing that she might have thought that being drowned by Andrew in a car so that he could go on to have an illustrative career was worth it, then I’ll consider the two equivalent.

So, cry me a bloody river with regards to Ted Kennedy.  How many tears did he shed for Mary Jo?  You people excused, overlooked, ignored, airbrushed and tried to morally equate the dirty deeds of St Teddy of Chappaquiddick for decades.  Neither you, the Democratic Party, nor that drunk had any shame.

Andrew Breitbart was a Magnificent, Glorious Bastard.  Teddy Kennedy was a traitorous, murderous, drunken, "steaming pile of human excrement.Big Diff!
