Ted Kennedy: Chappaquiddick Was Funny!

...I guess you had to be there, as only Teddy K and poor Mary Jo Kopechne were....

Ed Klein, former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine, talks about how Ted Kennedy liked to joke about Chappaquiddick.

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?"

I guess murder is funny, if you're the one getting away with it, and not the ones left with a lifetime to mourn the inexplicable death of a young daughter, one in which power and money conspired to keep you from ever seeing justice delivered.

Maybe this is part of the reason that liberals need to invent (and project) so much hatred on conservatives ("un-American right-wing town-hall terrorists!") . They have so much blood on their own hands - and the palms of their heroes are dripping with it, from Che to Castro to Kennedy - that they need to "normalize" their behavior by constantly intuiting equal crimes and bloodlust on the Right.

Let's see how much main-street Americans appreciate the Left's - and the media's - love affair with such a deeply, deeply flawed man...
