Mary Jo Kopechne, Chappaquiddick trend following Ted Kennedy tribute at DNC

Actually, Mary Jo Kopechne did trend on Twitter. There was no mention of her at the DNC, but the Twitterverse made sure her name was a trending topic, along with the #Chappaquiddick hashtag.

And now, back to your scheduled #WarOnWomen programming.

    Ted Kennedy left that poor girl Mary Jo Kopechne in a slowly sinking car, while he staggered off piss-drunk to come up with a ‘story’ for the cops, it took him over 9 hours to report the ‘accident’. He was a bloated old drunk and pervert, and personally -I’m glad that he’s gone. Kinda funny how the demon-o-crats still revere this guy.

      And more than just stagger, the ferry had stopped for the night so he swam back to Edgartown where his motel was located. After cleaning up and getting a good night’s sleep. he consulted with his political handlers over breakfast and then contacted local police.

      Sadly, the local police and courts helped dispense of the matter and Teddy was able to continue his career. Although she gave her life unwillingly, Mary Jo Kopechne performed one of the greatest services to this country that could have been asked. She alone kept Ted Kennedy from ever occupying the White House.

        Bravo,..nice summation.

        Worst atrocity of many in The Kennedy War On Women

      • Orangeone

        That’s what happens with all of the female victims of the Kennedy men, Mary Jo, Jackie, Marilyn, Martha Moxley, William Kennedy Smith’s rape victim, and the list goes on.

        • TugboatPhil

          And don’t forget poor sister Rosemary, who Papa Joe had lobotomized because she was an independent thinker. Can’t have that around the compound.

          • Orangeone

            Thank you Phil, forgot about Rosemary!  How many more female victims are there?  Does anyone know how many women were used as Kennedy sex toys and entertainment?

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          What about the latest Kennedy woman? Mary? What did she have to endure, I wonder. Prescription drugs can be/are just as bad as illicit substances…

          • Orangeone

            Ding, ding, ding.  My memory is short.

            Dear Lord, may all of the women victimized by the Kennedys be protected and held close.

      I cannot believe they dragged that moldy corpse of Kennedys out of the grave and paraded it around like he was some kind of grand dame. That SOB left that girl to DROWN! “Teddy” was a POS!!! Period.

  • lars1296

    The diver who found her body said she was probably alive for 3 or 4 hours before she died from suffocation. Just awful.

  • Chip

    Kennedy’s empty chair is now filled by a Republican!!!

  • Garth Haycock

    I’m still convinced that Ted’s big brother had some tremendous foresight about Ted and Chappaquiddick. He set in motion the goal to put a man on the moon and by the end of the decade Ted’s incident was swept aside by the excitement of Apollo 11 lands on the surface of the moon.

    Here’s the timeline:

    May 25, 1961 – JFK issues the challenge for the United States to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth

    July 18, 1969 – Ted gets completely shit-faced and drives his car off the bridge at Chappaquiddick.

    July 19, 1969 – Mary Jo’s body and Kennedy’s car are recovered from the tidal channel.

    July 20, 1969 – Neil Armstrong steps off the ladder onto the surface of the moon.

    Coincidence? I hardly think so.

    • TugboatPhil

      Garth, funny you should post this. I still have the paper from the moon landing and posted a picture of it in July. Here is the paper, notice what’s in the lower right side. Nothing about a woman dying, just a “Car Charge” like failure to yield or a broken turn signal.

  • redheadgrl

    War on women indeed…

  • ApplyCS

    So let us all raise our glass of vodka, drop our pants, and
    toast the Lion of the Senate and The Mouse of the Chappaquiddick.

  • nc

    Impossible not to think of Mary Jo while watching that worshipful video of The Lion (the rat).

  • NathanMBickel

    It’s a shame that the Dem Party would celebrate this man. Please Google my topical message as to what many would like to ignore.


    What did Senator Kennedy have in common with President Obama and the late Abortionist, George Tiller?

  • John Hanover

    The only other tribute one can do is the ad that Romney ran when he almost unseated that scumbag…showing an elder Ted Kennedy barely able to get his large butt off a park bench. John and Robert despite their political convictions showed the promise of the family, Ted showed the shame, that even made his rum-running Daddy’s look like a minor incident. I raise my middle finger to toast the over-bloated gin-soaked scumbag Ted Kennedy burn in Hell.

    Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.

      Fast thinking! MOST EXCELLENT tweet.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    I tweeted this: *sigh* #DNCInFourWords: He left her there.

  • $7421226

    that these communists revere this drunken woman-killer is typical behavior for them.

  • $7421226

    very very telling all these young white mindless IGNORANT democrat women tweeting in teddy’s defense, not knowing History: they could have been Mary Jo in his car one day.

  • Thomas Collins

    Kennedy then read a scripted response, candidly, candidly…

  • longplay

    And don’t forget drunk Teddy’s aiding and abetting of his young nephew in the William French Smith incident.
