Teddy's ad for Dodd
Teddy Kennedy cut a 30-second spot for his old friend Chris Dodd, who has been representing him in health care negotiations.
Kennedy, looking strong and fit despite his recent battle with cancer, says, "Quality health care as a fundamental right for all Americans has been the cause of my life, and Chris Dodd has been my closest ally in this fight."
The Massachusetts Democrat recently underwent a new round chemotherapy to deal with a glioma, an often fatal kind of tumor. It's not clear when Kennedy, chairman of the HELP committee, will be able to return to the Capitol to participate in health care talks.

He doesn't look strong at all. He looks near death, which won't be a bad thing for Massachusetts politics.. I don't wish him ill, but I won't mourn his passing. He was the main champion of the Big Dig, which is a disaster and the most expensive project undertaken in America. And you can bet that when we're burdened with unmanageable government health care his name will be all over it because of people feeling sorry for the Socialist now that he's sick.. Being sick doesn't change the lifetime of Socialist legislation he's pushed through.
He's also party to a death that should have been ruled involuntary manslaughter and landed him in prison because of what he did at Chappaquiddick in 1969. He's another Socialist that thinks government is above the people and knows better than we do what's good for us.

He has been a major strain on America body politics for years with his far left ideology .
His past treason's against America have been glossed over by the adoring liberal press who have always given him rave reviews because of his martyred brothers John and Robert !
A Phenomenon Called Senator Kennedy
An American and Moscow.By Vladimir Bukovsky & Pavel Stroilov
"During the Cold War, the behavior of Western politicians in their contacts with the Soviets varied quite widely, from hostile polemics to shameless collaboration. What was Senator Kennedy’s place in this wide spectrum?
Of course, Kennedy was not the only U.S. senator to visit the USSR. A few exceptions aside, however, they usually came as a group. As far as we can see in the documents, Kennedy always came alone.
Then, no other senator contacted the Soviets as often as Kennedy did. Nor were his relations with Moscow at all restricted to official visits. His chief of staff, Larry Horowitz, would journey there on Kennedy’s instructions several times a year. No other U.S. senator had a similar envoy.
All these facts are probably well-known to those who follow such matters. Serious questions about Kennedy’s role in the Cold War have been asked more than once before. From time to time, some bits of his mysterious story are revealed — only to demonstrate that much more of it still remains in darkness.
Now it happens again, with professor Paul Kengor quoting from a top-secret KGB report about their contacts with Kennedy, in his new book The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.
The document, first released in the Sunday Times by Tim Sebastian in 1992, reveals how Kennedy secretly offered the KGB to work together to undermine President Reagan.
This proposal was conveyed to the Soviets by former senator John Tunney in 1983.
That was not the only time when Tunney got involved in Kennedy’s games with Moscow. Another top-secret KGB report, published in 1992 in Russian Izvestia newspaper, says that in 1978 Kennedy “requested the assistance of the KGB to establish a relationship” between a firm owned by Tunney and the Soviets.
The KGB report recommended the CPSU Central Committee to agree, because Tunney’s firm was already connected to one David Karr, a KGB agent in France (See, for example: Ted Kennedy was a ‘Collaborationist,’ by Herbert Romerstein. Human Events, December 8, 2003).

How's this for a teaser about his piece of crap:
Kennedy went on to testify that “ had full intention of reporting it. And I mentioned to Gargan and Markham something like, ‘You take care of the other girls; I will take care of the accident!’ — that is what I said and I dove into the water”. Kennedy had already told Gargan and Markham not to tell the other women anything about the incident “[b]ecause I felt strongly that if these girls were notified that an accident had taken place and Mary Jo had, in fact, drowned, that it would only be a matter of seconds before all of those girls, who were long and dear friends of Mary Jo’s, would go to the scene of the accident and enter the water with, I felt, a good chance that some serious mishap might have occurred to any one of them”. Gargan and Markam would testify that they assumed that Kennedy was going to inform the authorities once he got back to Edgartown, and thus did not do so themselves.
According to his own testimony, Kennedy swam across the 500-foot channel, back to Edgartown and returned to his hotel room, where he removed his clothes and collapsed on his bed. Hearing noises, he later put on dry clothes and asked someone what the time was: it was something like 2:30 a.m., the senator recalled. He testified that, as the night went on, “I almost tossed and turned and walked around thathttp://kevincolby.com/2009/01/22/the-story-of-ted-kennedy-the-chappaquiddick-murderer/ room … I had not given up hope all night long that, by some miracle, Mary Jo would have escaped from the car.”
Back at his hotel, Kennedy complained at 2:55 ahttp://kevincolby.com/2009/01/22/the-story-of-ted-kennedy-the-chappaquiddick-murderer/m to the hotel owner that he had been awoken by a noisy party. By 7:30 am the next morning he was talking “casually” to the winner of the previous day’s sailing race, with no indication that anything was amiss. At 8 a.m., Gargan and Markham joined Kennedy at his hotel where they had a “heated conversation”. According to Kennedy’s testimony, the two men asked why he hadn’t reported the accident. Kennedy responded by telling them “about my own thoughts and feelings as I swam across that channel … that somehow when they arrived in the morning that they were going to say that Mary Jo was still alive”.

He panicked and swam across the channel to the Vinyard and crashed drunk in bed.
His drivers licence had expired and his team went into full protect mode.They called the Registrar of MV in Massachusetts and had him personally type up a new licence in his office and back date it so Kennedy couldn't be charged with driving without a valid licence.
Senator Kennedy's Driver's License had Expired
- Senator Kennedy's driver's license had expired on February 22, 1969 (nearly 5 months before the accident) and had not been renewed.
- Although driving with an expired license was only a misdemeanor, it did provide the evidence of negligence needed to prove a manslaughter charge in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
- The license problem was "fixed" by officials at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, under the direction of Registrar Richard McLaughlin, before the legal proceedings began.
- Every summer, the Edgartown Yacht Club sponsored the Edgartown Regatta off Martha's Vineyard. The Kennedy's had been attending the regatta for years, and their celebrations were the stuff of legend. Their 1966 regatta party had been "riotous," and 1967 equally festive, leaving a rented cottage in shambles. The assassination of Robert Kennedy had kept the family away in 1968, but in the spring of 1969 plans were under way to resume the festivities.
