Our Man Ted

Recipient of the Prestigious Goomba Fashionista Award

Judicial Watch has battled with the FBI for several years in order to obtain a heavily redacted report on Sen. Ted Kennedy's activities as reported in official government files. Among the goodies, it was reported that while he was on a 1961 tour of Latin America, Ted arranged to rent an entire brothel in Chile. From the UK Mail:

The statements previously withheld include accusations that during a tour of several Latin American countries he 'made arrangements to "rent" a brothel for an entire night, allegedly inviting one of the Embassy's chauffeurs to participate in the night's activities'.

In each country he visited he was also said to have 'insisted on interviewing "the angry young men" of the country as well as Communists who had extreme left-wing views'.

When he was in Mexico, it is said that his request to have certain left-wingers - one of whom was later linked with a Soviet spy ring - was refused as he was warned not to associate himself with such people.

This was a man who seriously thought he should and could be President until A Bridge Too Far in July of 1969 unraveled his aspirations to higher office. Imagine, going to other nations and surrounding himself with hookers and subversives while he was a Massachusetts Assistant District Attorney. He was twenty-nine years old at the time. Then eight years later - abandoning a woman to drown in his car. Mix with this a sordid life history of cheating, boozing and adultery. Let's face it, if a man refuses to keep an oath he swore to his own wife, what's the chance he will keep another oath he takes as Senator?

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Ted was the ideal Democrat, a Hero of the Party.

Surely a tad harsh? If I were a 29 year old Presidential aspirant in need of relief it might seem wise to rent the entire brothel rather then risk being seen in the company of the sleazy old losers that usually visit such places, allegedly.

Banned - if this were a solitary indiscretion I would agree with you 101 percent. And of course your alleged *wink* familarity with *nudge nudge* this kind of *ahem* establishment is based purely *w00t* on the extraordinary number and variety of descriptive literature commonly available in many media outlets.

Odie - they may just dig him and parade his rotting corpse through the "Big Dig" streets of Boston.

Man, for a moment there I thought you had dipped into my recent honeymoon photos.

Ted Kennedy should be viewed as a stain on Uncle Sam's shorts.
