HufPo Writer: Maybe Mary Jo Would Have Been Happy To Have Died For The Kennedy Cause UPDATE: You Know What Cracked Teddy Up? A Good Chappaquiddick Joke!

You see, she wasn't killed as much as she was a good liberal who took one for the team or something (safe link to NRO).

We don't know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she'd have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don't know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.

Still, ignorance doesn't preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn't automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted's death, and what she'd have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

Who knows — maybe she'd feel it was worth it.

I put the Matt Cooper thing in the headlines before Ace posted it and I said it was the "dimwitted quote of the day, so far". Never in my wildest dreams however did I think it would be topped in such spectacularly stupid and disgusting fashion. I'm not ready to call it the worst yet or that we are likely to see before it's all said and done. We've still got two days until the guy is buried.

It never ceases to amaze me that liberals, especially liberal women, who look to Democrats to vindicate their feminist ideas are willing to put up with sexual abuse, offer themselves up sexually or even think women might be happy to die for them.

This is their idea of what political heroes should be? Sick stuff.

Somewhat related...there's a debate whether opponents of health care reform should acquiesce to the Democrats new idea of calling it "KennedyCare". I say fine.

First, Kennedy is not nearly as popular outside of liberal salons as they think.

Second, when a lot of people think of Kennedy they think of three things: dangerous behind the wheel, bloated and dead. Strikes me that's a perfect metaphor for Obama-Kennedy Care or whatever we wind up calling it.

UPDATE: If launching Kennedy's career to a whole new level wasn't enough, I'm sure Mary Jo Kopechne would be happy to know she provided a lifetime of humor (for him, not her obviously).

Yeah, I'm pretty much not feeling bad about joking about this SOBs death.
