I did nothing of the kind, friend. Nor do I see any correlation between
communism and Ted Kennedy.

Wrong, again. The incident at Chappaquiddick (correct SPELLING) was July,
1969. JFK was assassinated in November of 1963; RFK was gunned down in July
of 1968.  Teddy's behavior after the accident was reprehensible.

I agree, he was a spoiled brat with a mjaor league drinking problem.  He
arrived in Utah in 1968 and his first question to reporters was: "where can
I get a drink?"

As you noted correctly, Mort Sahl was a comedian.

SNIP. I did not attempt to compare Ted to John or Bobby. Not once. Not ever.
I simply said that we, who are no position to judge him anyway, ought to
take into account the fact that his three older brothers -- Joe, Jack and
Bobby-- met violent, untimely deaths.  In the cases of Jack and Bobby, those
deaths were in his face, day in and day out, for years and years and years.
I suspect such would have a negative impact on all of us.  That is no excuse
for his behavior.

I don't think we disagree.

So basically, your distorted view has transformed it into an "You and your
fellow travelers against the rest of the world" scenario.  I love it.

I think you have an astonishingly skewed view of reality, especially of
