    My name is Mary Jo Kopechne.

    I would have been 65 years of age this year.

    Read about me and my killer below:

    When Sen. Ted Kennedy was merely just another Democrat bloating on Capitol Hill on behalf of liberal causes, it was perhaps excusable to ignore his deplorable past.

    But now that he's become a leading Republican attack dog, positioning himself as Washington's leading arbiter of truth and integrity, the days for such indulgence are now over.

    It's time for the GOP to stand up and remind America why this chief spokesman had to abandon his own presidential bid in 1980 - time to say the words "Mary Jo Kopechne" out loud.

    As is often the case, Republicans have deluded themselves into thinking that most Americans already know the story of how this "Conscience of the Democratic Party" left Miss Kopechne behind to die in the waters underneath the Edgartown Bridge in July 1969, after a night of drinking and partying with the young blonde campaign worker. But most Americans under 40 have never hear d that story, or details of how Kennedy swam to safety, then tried to get his cousin Joe Garghan to say he was behind the wheel.

    Those young voters don't know how Miss Kopechne, trapped inside Kennedy's Oldsmobile, gasped for air until she finally died, while the Democrats' leading Iraq war critic rushed back to his compound to formulate the best alibi he could think of.

    Neither does Generation X know how Kennedy was thrown out of Harvard on his ear 15 year s earlier -- for paying a fellow student to take his Spanish final. Or why the US Army denied him a commission because he cheated on tests.

    As they listen to the Democrats' "Liberal Lion" accuse President Bush of "telling lie after lie after lie" to get America to go to war in Iraq, young voters don't know about that notorious 1991 Easter weekend in Palm Beach when Uncle Teddy rounded up his nephews for a night on the town, an evening that ended with one of them credibly accused of rape.

    It's time for Republicans to state unabashedly that they will no longer "go along with the gag" when it comes to Uncle Ted's rants about deception and moral turpitude inside the Bush White House.

    And if the Republicans don't, let's do it ourselves by passing this forgotten disgrace around the Internet to wake up memories of what a fraud and fake Teddy really is.

    The Democratic Party should be ashamed to have the national disgrace from Massachusetts as their spokesman.

    When Teddy was sitting in judgement of Clarence Thomas was one of the most hypocritical things I ever saw. Ted was one of the reasons Congress had to exempt themselves from sexual harrassment laws, he is infamous for some of his womanizing.
    I remember the bumper stickers when he tried to run:
    A Blonde in Every Pond
    Forget the Dead
    Vote For Ted

    I read a Jack Anderson column quite a few years ago, his car broke down in Hyassaport(sp?) late one evening. He knew where he was, so walked up to Teddy's home. Teddy answered the door with a 6" .357 revolver in his hand, covered by a folded newspaper. All his gun control bills are just more hypocrisy from the king. I like that, The King of Hypocrisy.

    Kennedy, The King of Hypocrisy, has a nice ring to it.

    Do you know that scientist have since determined exactly how fast he was going when he hit the water? They determined that he was doing 4,358.5 miles an hour..... no, I'm not kidding. That is the speed necessary to rip a pair of womans panties off her body and throw them right into the glove compartment!

    One of the guys I work with has a bumper sticker that says, "Teddy Kennedy's car has killed more people than all of my guns!"

    I note with smug satisfaction that Fatso finally resigned from a college club that is noted for bigotry after blasting Alioto for membership in a college organization that was notably bigoted as well. (And which has no records of Alioto's membership.) About time he owned up to a couple more things that are known but not acknowleged about his history. Bloated, beknighted bastard of Boston never lived there anyhow, had too much money. Of all three of the best known Kennedys, he is the one that really deserved dismissal from the living. (All sorts of miscellaneous expletives inserted here if you wish.)
