Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 20, 2019

It would be easy, and not unwarranted, to mark Thursday's 50th anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident by reviewing in excruciating detail all the ways that night that then-Sen. Ted Kennedy failed his duty as a decent human being. Maybe we can go deeper, though, and let this anniversary of the accident be the last one receiving major retrospectives. Maybe we, too, can act with good judgment by letting this awful story rest once this week ends.

"It is by now well known that Kennedy, that night and the next morning, acted with selfishness, callousness, and cowardice. With his victim, Mary Jo Kopechne, remaining in the car he had just submerged, Kennedy walked past several lighted houses without knocking on the doors to ask for help. He didn't report the accident until after a full night's sleep, a shower, and a social visit with breakfasting hotel neighbors. And it turns out that Kopechne probably survived long enough that if Kennedy had secured a rapid and concerted rescue effort, and if everything went absolutely perfectly, it might have saved her life."

I still remember Teddy's campaign meme- "A Blonde in Every Pond!"

More deflection threads from mother Russia.....

Do you celebrate Laura Bush's Ex-boyfriends death too, after he died because she was drunk driving?
Asking for a friend.

PS Teddy Kennedy is dead.
Some of you alt-right (R)tards have Kennedy derangement syndrome.

Anyone else think the era when a thing like this prevents you from becoming President has ended?

- PS Teddy Kennedy is dead.

Mary Jo Kopechne has been dead for 50 years.

Democrats insulated her killer and promoted him to Senator.

Teddy wasn't convicted of a crime.

Totally Exonerated!

Seems like the Russians are spreading the message that it is okay to vote for rapists, even if the girl is 13.

50 years ago cancervative schittstains were killing student protesters on college campuses.

Today cancervative schittstains are killing migrant toddlers in the bloated------------'s concentration camps.

"Ted's" actions were beyond reprehensible. And that also applies to everybody who not only buried this but then promoted him into the Senate.

Is anybody surprised that Rein is deflecting as much as possible?

You being a trump supporter should be the last person that should be playing the morality card.

So what's your feeling of Pickles Bush killing her ex-boyfriend while driving drunk?

The same "moral outrage" or does she get the usual alt-right "free pass" because she plays for your team?

Is anybody surprised that Abortion Mongoose would deflect for his boyfriend Reinreacharound?
