    home video was in it's infancy during the Kennedy heyday...otherwise there might have been one somewhere.

    the one known time one of them used a video camera was when Michael- who had admitting fucking his children's babysitter from when she was 14 years old- was videotaping a ski football game and crashed into a tree killing himself.

    the hiltons have been a bit more successful with their own 'home movies'

    More likely, we'll get a Reverend Wright sex tape. That guy gets around, from reading all the stories of angry ex-husband parishioners....

    you can't make this shit up. fiction writers wouldn't have the balls that politicians do..
    I, for one, have very little sympathy for ol' Ted. When Kopechne was found, she was in a look of complete terror. There were claw marks from her fingernails on the car seat and the top of the car, she had tried vigilantly to get out of the car but drowned. Ted, meanwhile, didn't even think about going back to save her as much as he did to save his own ass, by going back to his hotel room to go to sleep. He didn't even report the accident, but took a ferry back the next day in a good mood. Also, the fact that he said the incident itself was an "accident" is questionable, considering that he was very well acquainted with the area and the car was going very fast. Weren't there also substantial rumors that she was pregnant with his child?

    An investigation at the scene of the accident by Raymond R. McHenry, suggested that Kennedy approached the bridge at an estimated 34 miles (55 kilometres) per hour. At around 5 metres (17 feet) from the bridge, Kennedy braked violently. This locked the front wheels. According to McHenry: "The car skidded 5 metres (17 feet) along the road, 8 metres (25 feet) up the humpback bridge, jumped a 14 centimetre barrier, somersaulted through the air for about 10 metres (35 feet) into the water and landed upside-down."
    Investigators found it difficult to understand why he was crossing Dyke Bridge when he said he was attempting to reach Edgartown which was in the opposite direction. They also could not understand why he was driving so fast on this unlit, uneven, road. They also could not work out how Kennedy escaped from the car. When it was recovered from the water all the doors were locked. Three of the windows were either open or smashed in. If Kennedy, a large-framed 6 foot 2 inches tall man could manage to get out of the car, why was it impossible for Mary Jo Kopechne, a slender 5 foot 2 inches tall, not do the same?
    Local experts could not understand why Kennedy (and later, Markham and Gargan) could not rescue Kopechne from the car. It also surprised investigators that Kennedy did not seek help from Pierre Malm, who only lived 135 metres from the bridge. At the inquest Kennedy was unable to answer this question.
    There were also doubts about the way Kopechne died. Dr. Donald Mills of Edgartown, wrote on the death certificate: "death by drowning". However, Gene Frieh, the undertaker, told reporters that death "was due to suffocation rather than drowning". John Farrar, the diver who removed Kopechne from the car, claimed she was "too buoyant to be full of water". It is assumed that she died from drowning, although her parents filed a petition preventing an autopsy.
    Other questions were asked about Kennedy's decision to swim back to Edgartown. The 150 metre channel had strong currents and only the strongest of swimmers would have been able to make the journey safely. Also no one saw Kennedy arrive back at the Shiretown Inn in wet clothes. Ross Richards, who had a conversation with Kennedy the following morning at the hotel described him as casual and at ease.
    Kennedy did not inform the police of the accident while he was at the hotel. Instead at 9am he joined Gargan and Markham on the ferry back to Chappaquiddick Island. Steve Ewing, the ferry operator, reported Kennedy in a jovial mood. It was only when Kennedy reached the island that he phoned the authorities about the accident that had taken place the previous night.
    Dr. Robert Watt, Kennedy's family doctor, explained his patient's strange behaviour by claiming he was in a state of shock and confusion and "possible concussion."

    You're right, Ted is ballsy. but because of his Kennedy name, he never served time, got a suspended two month sentence. Today he's lauded as a great man, its pretty mind-blowing. You couldn't make this shit up if you tried.

    Because of what he's accomplished as a senator.

    exactly.

    She can't even spit out a coherent sentence! What's to defend? The woman is George Bush, if Bush got kicked in the head a few times.

    Really, someone please tell me wtf there is of Palin that is positive.
    agree again.

    say what you want about ted kennedy, he has been a great senator for decades.
    maybe he's done some questionable shit in his private life, but at least as a public servant i think he's been pretty good.
    that should count for something.

    I agree. He's served the country for 40 years. With his family's money, he could have sat on his ass and done nothing.

    And I still say fuck that murdering, useless, sack of shit. Kopechne could possibly have served the world in some way, but the world could never know that due to the actions of a Kennedy.
    And as for him using his family's money to sit on his ass and do nothing - they needed to save some of that money to pay for the murders they committed.

    Fuck Palin's stupid ass too. If both of these cankers dropped dead tomorrow, I wouldn't lose a wink.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!
