Teddy Kennedy’s “Accident” Just Had a 40th Year Anniversary!

Last Saturday marked the 40th anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, killed July 18, 1969 after leaving a party with Senator Edward Kennedy aka Teddy the Swimmer since that date. That night, Kennedy drove his car off a bridge, and left the scene with Kopechne still in the submerged vehicle; he did not call the police until the following morning.

Over the course of the past four decades, the media elite have touted Kennedy as a “liberal lion,” spending far more time celebrating his ideological agenda than reminding people of his behavior that night in 1969. As my newsman Brent Baker noted in an op-ed back in 1999, the media have come to refer to Chappaquiddick as a “Kennedy tragedy,” not a “Kopechne tragedy.”

Perhaps the most egregious example of the liberal media planting a pro-Kennedy spin on Chappaquiddick came in a January 5, 2003 Boston Globe Magazine profile of Kennedy:

“If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward “Teddy the Swimmer” Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age,” wrote the Globe’

The still un-answered questions regarding this incident are;

Why was Kennedy not charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection with Kopechne’s untimely death?
Why is Kennedy looked upon as such a great man and this incident all but forgotten when the DUI that George W. Bush received many years ago keeps bouncing up in the news on a regular basis?

Instead of “liberal lion” he should be referred to as the “liberal loser”.

I think that IF Teddy “The Swimmer” Kennedy was NOT a member of the “Kennedy Family”, he would long ago been forgotten as the drunken fool and poor excuse for a human being that he is.

The media and the liberals may have forgotten Mary Jo but there are many of us who have not!
