For Democrats, the end always justifies the means, and rhetoric will always trump reason. The two great orators of the Democratic party of the last 40 years, Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy, were two of the most immoral men who ever graced public life. Clinton will speak tonight, and as always, his horrific history of rape and abuse of women will be ignored so he can pose as a person who really cares.
Just ask Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willie, among others too numerous to name, how much he cares.
But the worst example of all is the Democrats lionizing of Ted Kennedy. In a seven minute video at the DNC, there were plenty of quotes from Kennedy and his admirers that should be seen through the agonized eyes of a young girl, slowly asphyxiating in a car submerged in water, a young woman vainly trying to open the door so she could breathe just one more time, a young woman betrayed by the scion of the country’s most powerful family who left her to die.
Mary Jo Kopechne.
For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.
Whose dream? Mary Jo’s?
I believe in the bright light of hope and possibility
I always have even in the darkest hours.
That bright light of hope was the pressure his family brought to bear so he wasn’t arrested for vehicular manslaughter.
Everything he did was about the future, it was about going forward.
You bet Kennedy never looked back.
Barack Obama: Those of us who knew Teddy and worked with him here —
people of both parties knew that what drove him was something more.
Sure they knew what drove him. The accessory to rape with his nephew, the sex on tables; why do you think Clinton idolized the Kennedys?
