Saw where Mary Jo Kopechne would be 65...

This year, if she'd never met Ted Kennedy that is.

I can't help but watch the dims labor on about Rove and integrity, while watching one of their main mouthpieces on the subject continue to hide his actions on that fatal night, July 18th, 1969 in Chappaquiddick.

When Sen. Ted Kennedy was merely just another bloated Democrat making grand pronouncements on behalf of liberal causes, it was just preferable to ignore this degenerate, drunk. But now that he's feeling free to position himself as the judge and jury of moral positions, well, I liked him better with his mouth shut - which is relative of course.

But the time has come for decent people to rise up - righteously indignant - and remind a new generation why this drunk had to abandon his presidential bid in back in 1980. It's time to point out the type of men the modern liberal democratic party looks to as leaders.

As is often the case, Republicans have kept silent about their opponents nature and actions. But it is time to remind people that this Liberal "Icon of Integrity" left Miss Kopechne behind in an overturned car to suffocate and drown beneath the Edgartown Bridge on July 1969. The "Senator" married, with 5 other married men and 6 single women, had after a night of drinking and partying, taken the attractive and young blonde campaign worker for a ride. A ride which resulted in her tragic death. But most Americans under 35 have never heard that story, or details of how Kennedy ran the car off the bridge, got himself out, swam to safety (did anyone ever see him wet?), never tried to free Miss Kopechne or notify anyone for 9 hours that a wreck had occurred. No one remembers why it was he didn't seek help in a lighted house only yards from the bridge or use the fire-alarm phone at a fire station he passed on the way back to the party. No one knows why the next morning two of his buddies were waiting for him at 9 A.M. to catch the first ferry across the river his car was in. At that time, the ferry operator said Kennedy appeared to be in a jovial mood, but that was probably lasted until he was told that his Oldsmobile had been found in the river. Wouldn't you hate being reminded you drowned a girl the night before? Talk about a mood spoiler. Oh, and only then did Kennedy report the accident to the police. Then then police chief was kind enough to vacate his office so Kennedy and his friends could wait in comfortable surroundings and continue their strategy planning session.

He even tried to get Joe Garghan to say he was behind the wheel at the time of the accident. We all know perjury is the felony of choice for Libs. Not only that, he used his powers in the state of Massachusetts to get the court records sealed. How many "ordinary citizens" can get a court to seal records of a drunk driving incident?? Why is it the Dims are always refusing to release info? Anybody seen Kerry's complete medical records yet?

Anyway, back to Ted, most young voters don't know how Miss Kopechne, trapped inside Kennedy's Oldsmobile, gasped for air in the footwell of the car until she finally suffocated, while the Democrats' leader went back to his compound to nap, and then encourage his cousin to commit conspiracy while formulating the best alibi he could think of.

Neither does Generation X know how Kennedy was thrown out of Harvard on his ear 15 years earlier -- for paying a fellow student to take his Spanish final. Or, why the US Army denied him a commission because he cheated on tests.

As anyone listens to the Democrats' leader accuse President Bush of "telling lie after lie after lie" to get America to go to war in Iraq, young voters don't know about that infamous 1991 Easter weekend in Palm Beach, when Uncle Teddy rounded up his boys (nephews) for a night on the town, an evening that ended with one of them credibly accused of rape. Was he teaching them the tricks of the trade that night?

It's time for Republicans to state unabashedly that they will no longer tolerate it when it comes to Uncle Ted's rants about deception and moral failings inside the Bush White House. It's time for the Republicans to grow a pair, by showing everyone what a fraud and fake Teddy really is.

The Democratic Party should be ashamed to have this lying, drunken disgrace as their spokesman. Of course, without Kennedy, they'd be left with Kerry or Pelosi, so it really doesn't matter does it? Integrity just ain't a thang with Dims.
