So it's confirmed: somehow, Ted Kennedy turns out to be an even worse

scumbag and waste of oxygen than I'd thought.
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?" That is just the most amazing thing. It's not that he didn't feel remorse about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things, too.
'The ridiculous side' of leaving a woman to die of oxygen starvation. The 'ridiculous side' of leaving her to die because he had to perform the more important functions of covering his ass...
It has often been written that Mary Jo Kopechne "drowned." She didn't. The cause of death was asphyxiation -- there was an air pocket inside the overturned car, and Mary Jo lived long enough to breathe the last remaining oxygen in that air pocket. And while Mary Jo was breathing her last . . . what did Ted Kennedy do?

Well, among other things, he began trying to concoct a cover-up story: "Why couldn't Mary Jo have been driving the car? . . . Why couldn't she have let him off and driven to the ferry herself and made a wrong turn?" His own cousin, Joe Gargan, talked Ted out of attempting to get away with that

That these media assholes spent so many years covering up garbage like this, that 'women's rights groups' covered for him and sucked up to him and made excuses for this... this bloated thing.

To every one of you who protected him from the consequences of his actions, and I include every moron in MA who voted for him: you suck.

That's not near expressive enough, but I don't know what would be.

You know, I can understand that a rich and powerful man would attempt to lie, cheat and get others to lie, and cheat to cover for his wrongs, but this business about telling jokes and collecting jokes indicates that scumbag is probably too kind a word to describe his lack of character.
What really chaps my hide is the women's groups that run interference for such barnacle food. THEY are the real evil ones, as they are willing to throw any individual woman overboard so long as the program of allegedly protecting women from such evil as getting thrown overboard can continue. It happened with Mary Jo, and it happened with that poor woman who had the temerity to sue a sitting president, and pursue it through an appeal that said, no it won't distract from the business of running the country to let it go forward.

I had my own thoughts on the man. Suffice to say, he'll not be missed in my home.
