Why do they keep electing him?

How is it possible that the people of Massachusetts keep electing that murderous moron, Teddy Kennedy, back to the US Senate. That reason alone, is enough for me to never move to that state. Who would want to live amongst such incredibly stupid people?

Update: Bringing up this topic got me to do a quick websearch of the topic of Chappaquiddick. I came by this website: which has a detailed description of the events. It's not complimentory to Teddy. One of the things that struck me about it, is the evidence that Mary Jo was alive and breathing in an airpocket in the overturned car. She died with little water in her lungs, suggesting that she died after using up the oxygen in that air pocket. Her body stiffened up in the position of someone who had propped themselves into a position to breathe that air, as shown below, where original water level is the pocket of trapped air.

It's estimated that she could have easily been alive for two hours, while Teddy fretted about covering his ass. The local firemen estimated that they could have gotten her help within minutes of the accident. Instead, fishermen found the car 7.5 hours later. Only after he was notified, did Teddy own up to the accident, some 9 hours later.

The whole story is a fascinating read, that leaves one wondering why charges are not brought against Teddy today.


  • Hey hey HEY. Mass isn't so bad. It only took me an hour and a half last night at 11:30 to go 5 miles through the big dig. And I've only thrown my back out shoveling snow once this year. Plus the Sam Adams brewery tour is wicked awesome. And...uhh...there are lots of cool seagulls flying around everywhere. So what if it's the most expensive city in America to live in. It's all worth it to see Johnny running round the bases at Fenway come spring. Wait. Fuck.

  • Trying to make your way in and out of Logan Airport should be enough to convince any rational person that Boston is the worst place in the world.

    There is a reason all the neighbors call them Massholes.
