TEDDY K GOES *SPLASH* AGAIN
Since tomorrow is Father's Day, it is worth noting that Joseph Kopechne (if he's still living) will not be getting a card from his daughter. That's because Ted Kennedy killed Mary Jo Kopechne on July 19, 1969, for which he has never atoned. He played the suffering accident survivor to the hilt -- was photographed wearing braces. Why Teddy K decided to write a children's book, I dunno. I can only imagine it was for the money. The sicky irony is that the book features his dog named (I kid you not) Splash. Was the world crying out for this book?
'SEE TEDDY SWEAT' AT Q&A FOR KID BOOK: Perhaps without realizing it, the tyke brought up the elephant in the room. Teddy Kennedy had just written a book about a dog named Splash. … Teddy did settle a burning question before he left. He said his dog was named Splash before he bought him, at age 1. "That was a wonderful name for me, because he loves the water." "He can stay in the water for hours and hours."
Ted Kennedy has no shame, and I have to wonder, too, about the voters of Massachusetts who keep him in office.
