“We Told The Truth; At Least Our Version Of It”

There is an extraordinary contrast between what is known about the Kennedy clan and the continuing infatuation with it.  Teddy Kennedy was a vulgar debaucher.  He did not even attempt to shield his wife from the humiliation of his whorings.

Beginning this Sunday CNN, the most busted name in news, will air a miniseries “American Dynasties: The Kennedys.”  The miniseries intent, I believe, is to present a sanitized version of a powerful, ruthless, sexually arrogant family with links to Chicago gangsters.
Promotional material for the series includes pleasant footage of the Kennedy children enjoying “picnics on the south lawn where they had a tree house and swing set.”  Spare me.
The spell of “Camelot” that has been cast upon us must be broken once and for all.  To that end, the producers behind the upcoming film focusing on Ted Kennedy and the murder of Mary Jo Kopechne in the Chappaquiddick incident purchased ad space to play just before CNN’s upcoming miniseries with other ads playing during commercial breaks throughout the series in the coming weeks.
Teddy was one of three debauched sons of privilege (four, if you count Joe who was killed during World War II).  It was that very privilege which saved his neck from being convicted of depraved indifference in the drowning murder of Mary Jo Kopechne.  After pleading guilty to leaving the scene of the “accident” he received a two-month suspended sentence and his driver’s license was suspended for one year.
The parents of Mary Jo refused to have an autopsy performed on their daughter due to fears that it would reveal she was pregnant at the time of her death.  They received a settlement of $140,904 from Kennedy and his insurance company.
For 40 years, from 1969 until his death in 2003, Joseph A. Kopechne was haunted by the knowledge that his daughter did not drown in Kennedy’s Oldsmobile but asphyxiated gasping for air.  She could have been saved had Kennedy reported the incident right away rather than waiting 10 hours to do so.  Mary Jo’s mom passed away in 2007 and said that Kennedy never told her he was sorry. 
Liberals expect us to kneel in worshipful awe to their “Lion of the Senate”.  Kennedy was a drunken, lecherous aberration.  There was nothing heroic about the man.
