"Sick, Bloated, Evil and DEAD".

It's what passes for self-deprecating humor among the Left.

How so? Well, because from their standpoint, the tragedy of Chappaquiddick is not that Mary Jo died due to Ted's drunken cowardice, but that the scandal prevented Ted from becoming President.

So as they see it, Ted's marvelous sense of humor would allow him to enjoy a good joke at his own expense... and oh yes, pity about the poor girl too.

Kennedy didn't die at Chapp-a-QUIT IT!!!!

But he was affected for the rest of his life. It's a little-known fact that his near-drowning left him with a serious disability -- the inability to rid himself of flatus. That's right -- since August of 1969, the good Senator has been unable to fart.

He never overate or indulged in alcholic excess -- the progressive bloating we observed over the decades since "Splash" and his girlfriend drove northbound on an westbound bridge was due to accumulated flatulence.

Try as he might, and some of his speeches should have provided an excellent opportunity to expel the accumulated gas, he just couldn't decompress his tortured chitlins.

No doubt he will continue to be larger than life, even in death.

Armadillo, the source of that story actually tried portraying it as an example of Teddy's self deprecating sense of humor.

But it's true that for leftiests the tragedy of Chappaquiddick was not the death of Mary Jo, but the inconvenience it put on Teddy. Oh, those poor Kennedys and that dread family curse!

I live in New England and can't even find a weather forecast on tv without hearing about the "tragedy" of a Great American dying. The young men who die or are maimed for life fighting for a country that doesnt seem to realize its at war is a tragedy. The death of a privileged elderly man who never did an honest days work in his life is far from it.

I have to agree with Bill. Everytime a rich person dies, whether it be a politician or musician or tv actor/actress, the news is just rammed down our throats, ad nauseum.

Thousands of young men and women are dying in a war which is hardly mentioned, but hardly any news about their death !

America used to be about the poor and the hungry. Now it's about how wealthy and phat and powerful a person is.

If each newscast started with the fact that Kennedy had been kicked out of Harvard for cheating, I'm sure it never would have gotten to the "ad nauseum" stage.
