As Kopechne’s body was pulled from the dark sedan, the senator told investigators he panicked.
“That tragedy will live with me for the rest of my life…every day for the rest of my life,” he said.
And the tragedy is dead today. Actually, last night. No longer can it live with him. Now Ted Kennedy must finally face Mary Jo.
I know, I shouldn’t say anything at all because I don’t have anything nice to say. All that speaking ill of the dead stuff.
No, I can be nice. I sincerely hope that he sought forgiveness of his many sins. He will be missed by many, but not by me. I’m not heartless enough to celebrate the death of a man, but I’m not mourning.
I will not miss his mafia type tactics to preserve some Kennedy legacy. As far as I’m concerned, it can die with him. Americans bravely fought a war to rid ourselves of a royal dynasty. George Washington refused the opportunity to establish one here.
We can only hope the legacy of lies and cover-ups, rape and murder, ends here.
